Malaysia | That’s a wrap

By S I’m going to get this out of the way quickly – I AM SO GLAD WE WENT TO MALAYSIA. Remember when we first announced our trip and we mentioned we were *thinking* about going to Malaysia but weren’t really sure? Yeah, me too. (If you actually didn’t remember and just pretended to so you […]

Malaysia | Sabah

By S Sabah is an example of reality exceeding expectation. Prior to arriving, I was a little hesitant. Kuching was great. Mulu was even better. We were due for a letdown eventually, right? Plus, due to the fact that we were flying in and out, we were committed to 5 days. Five days? In a […]

Malaysia | Mulu National Park

By D and S Mulu is freaking awesome. Like in Kuching, we felt that there was so much more we could have done given more time (and more money, it really isn’t cheap). But, those are the limits of traveling the world with a set amount of time and a set amount of money. Some […]

Sound like hyperbole? Stay tuned. But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves. We are talking about Kuching […]

According to the internet (and signs around town) it used to be the most important of the three due to its strategic location (it is […]

Malaysia | Cameron Highlands (and Ipoh)

There are several small towns in the Cameron Highlands, but most tourists end up in Tanah Rata. When you are buying a bus ticket to ‘Cameron Highlands’ the destination on your ticket is ‘Tanah Rata’. For […]

Malaysia | Kuala Lumpur

By D After George Town, we had originally planned on going to the Cameron Highlands (which would have made sense geographically). However, due to the combination of Chinese New Year (which goes for like two weeks) and the fact that we were going to be there on a weekend and Cameron Highlands is a popular […]
