First of all my apologies for posting the entire trip schedule on each of the relevant forums but it saved a lot of time and I’m happy for people to provide their opinions on any area of the itinerary, I’m not precious! I like to think I’m fairly thorough with my research but you can't beat local and expert knowledge so I’d be extremely interested to get your feedback on my plans and any recommendations of things to do in addition to those mentioned.
We will be spending 16 nights in Malaysia in September, starting with 3 nights in Singapore. My preferred hotel choice is the Mayo Inn but I would welcome any alternative suggestions in the same price range ( up to S$130 / £70) with a good location. The only thing we have planned so far in Singapore is the zoo including the night safari so would like to know what else is a ‘must do’ for 3 nights in Singapore? We are a couple in our mid 30s and enjoy food, local culture, music and a good night out.
From Singapore we fly to Kuching where we will spend 4 nights at the Limetree Hotel. The activities planned while we are there are Semenggoh Nature Reserve and a night at Bako National Park. I’m thinking of visiting Semenggoh the day after we arrive and then spending our third night in Bako. Again, any suggestions for things to do while we are there would be great. Preferably this would be in or around Kuching as I don’t want to pack too much in and over commit but if there is something I simply shouldn’t miss I’ll be flexible as I probably won’t be in Malaysia again for quite a few years!
After Kuching we will fly to Penang for 4 nights. Hoping to stay at Noordin Mews and just want to enjoy Georgetown, particularly the food and take in some of the attractions that sound interesting in the things to do section on here. Anything that isn’t on there that I should try to include?
We will then be ending our trip with 5 nights in Langkawi. Our 1st choice for accommodation is Sunset Beach Resort and we are planning to do a Kayaking trip with Devs adventure tours and the cable car and Skybridge (if it’s open). The remaining few days will be rest and relaxation which I suspect we’ll need by then!
Thanks in advance for your help and advice.
