any feed back regarding my non stop honeymoon trip?

hi guys

it has been almost 3 months researching on this wonderful site , and with the help of many in this form and other country forms i came by the following plan to my honeymoon in august which will take around 18 days

stage one : land in kuala lampur for four nights

stage two : head to koh samui in thailand for ten days

stage three : go to singapor for four nights

what do you guys think of this plan , is it too much ? i wanted to stay at langkawi at first but discovered the weather would be much better in koh samui , my main interest is a romantic laid back place to relax , thats why i put 10 days for the beach

do you guys think 4 days each for singapor and kuala lampur is too little ? i'm i rushing things ? i dont necessarily want to see all attractions in those countries but the main sites as its my first time to all the previous countries!

any feed back would be much appreciated

thanks

I think your plan is fine. There are many places in Kuala Lumpur, so you will have to pick where you want to go. As for Singapore, you could spend one day at the Universal Studio in Sentosa Island and maybe one day travel to Bintang Island in Indonesia (you can go there by ferry from Singapore).

Whereabouts in Samui are you planning to stay? There is a wonderful villa located on Bang Rak beach if you are interested and has the budget. If you are, PM me and I will get you in touch directly with the owner.

Hi

I think your plans sounds wonderful. In Malaysia make sure you go to twins towers and in Singapore make sure go to Singapore flyer. I things these two are must do. Just my thought anyway :)

I think it will be fine especially having 10 days to relax on Samui. If you were doing 4 nights in each I think it would be too rushed but this way you will get to have the best of both worlds.

Hi

Same as I posted on your thread on the Kuala Lumpur fourm, yes your plan sounds a good one. Especially if you are happy with it!

You know that there is lots of must do's in the Kuala Lumpur forum, and the FAQs are a great place to start.

[please forgive my cut and paste] What we normally suggest as the best thing is to read the FAQs about Kuala Lumpur [ on the right of the Kuala Lumpur forum page --->>> tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowForum-g298570-i7008-Ku… . Everyone forgets or misses the Top or Frequently Asked Questions/FAQs [especially if using smart phones], which are packed with lots of really great information about lots of really useful information!! If you are accessing TA via the smart phone app’ you won’t see the FAQs in the normal app view on your phone, so suggest that you view the app it as full site mode / desk top view; or just use a laptop or pc to enjoy the information that has been collected. The Top Questions / FAQs ] but FAQ KL Popular Sights and perhaps FAQ KL Day Trips / FAQ Elephant Sanctuary / FAQ Fire flies are worth reading.

Also look at the green banner at the top of this page and check out the ‘Travel Guide’ / ‘Inside Guides’ [in the MORE tab] and ‘Things To Do’ which list lots of pointers of what to see and where to go as well as other information like restaurants, and Hotels.

What to see and do is very much a personal choice, but as a very simple guide the most popular sights for a 2-4 day stay are normally:

Petronas Towers - tours http://www.petronastwintowers.com.my/ or from KLCC park or have drink at Skybar in Traders hotel for the view

shangri-la.com/en/… and the bar / restaurants at Marinis 57 http://www.marinis57.com/bar.php

KL Menara [Tower] – views from observation deck http://menarakl.com.my/index.cfm or afternoon tea / dinner buffet http://www.kltower.com.my/index.cfm?sc=dining or http://www.atmosphere360.com.my/

Bukit Bintang [around 10malls including Pavillion, Sungei Wang, Berjaya Times Square and so much shopping and eating] + Jalan Alor / Changkat Bukit Bintang [evening eating, bars and entertainment],

from where you can always walk or monorail to . .

Chinatown / Petaling Street Market and Central Market [shopping, sights, food, walking tours and night market],

and is a short walking distance to . . . . . .

Merdaka Square [historical sights]

and then walk on to Little India [sights and some shopping]

Batu Caves is just out of town and on the public transport routing. The easiest way to get to Batu Caves is probably a taxi but you can get there by monorail and then train. Batu Caves station on the Sentul / Klang KTM line, If you find nearest station to your starting point, then find Batu Caves , http://www.myrapid.com.my/rail/routes www.myrapid.com.my/tickets-fares/monorail http://www.myrapid.com.my/tickets-fares/lrt

Lake Gardens - Bird park [don’t expect anything like the one in Singapore] / Orchid Garden / National Mosque / Islamic Art Museum / Carcosa Seri Negara for Afternoon Tea; Segway http://segkl.com/ are all easy to get to and just a taxi from KL Sentral Station

Royal Selangor Pewter Visitor Centre is a 20mins taxi ride out of town or Putra line to Wangsa Maju station, http://visitorcentre.royalselangor.com/vc/.

Craft Complex, Jalan Conlay is not far from Bukit Bintang, and Jadi Batik Gallery is near the Craft Complex. http://malaysiancraft.com/index.cfm

If you fancy a bit of time out look at a trip to Forest Reserve Institute of Malaysia (FRIM) http://www.frim.gov.my/?page_id=543, a very interesting food tour http://www.foodtourmalaysia.com/ , Lazat Cookery course http://www.malaysia-klcookingclass.com/ or http://www.simplyenak.com/, see some local country side with http://openskyunlimited.com/v1.0/ or maybe the Elephant Sanctuary, Fireflies at Selangor, day trip to Malacca to see the heritage buildings [see FAQs -->> ]

Malaysia Tourism Centre (MaTiC) is between the Petronas Towers and the KL Menara {Tower} on Jalan Ampang, useful stop for information, is on the Hop on Hop off bus route http://www.myhoponhopoff.com/ and the base of Saloma Cultural Theatre Restaurant http://www.mtc.gov.my/eng/ABOUTUS/intro.html http://www.saloma.com.my/ http://visit-to-kl.com/

http://mappery.com/Kuala-Lumpur-Tourist-Map a half decent map is a must when planning!

tourism.gov.my/en/…E-Brochures has some great leaflets, and the Kuala Lumpur brochure has a really useful map, as do the shopping brochures.

tourism.gov.my/intl_en/places/state_list/kl

There is a new ‘free’ bus doing the sights . . malaysiafreebies.com/go-kl-city-bus-free-tra… and they do have a facebook if you search GO KL (Kuala Lumpur City Bus) which you may also want to check out.

The monorail and train is a really easy and cheap way to get about and many stops are near the popular sights or connections to the trains or buses http://www.myrapid.com.my/rail/routes www.myrapid.com.my/tickets-fares/lrt-monorail www.myrapid.com.my/tickets-fares/monorail http://www.myrapid.com.my/tickets-fares/lrt http://www.myrapid.com.my/bus/map http://www.myrapid.com.my/tickets-fares/bus .

I too think its a shame that you didn't have Bangkok on your list. Can you postpone Singapore and visit Bangkok for a few nights after Samui? Bangkok is an awesome city and there is plenty of stuff to do.

Yes with all my heart Bangkok is 100x better than Singapore. East meet west, history, cultures. Go to Bangkok forum and click on things to and see. If you haven't looked in with Singapore I would suggest change it to Bangkok. But it sounds like you re already booked!!!
