which islands to see ? 3 weeks trip

We hire a car for 3 weeks in August and visit Malaysia.

we plan to visit some islands : langkawi, perenthian, tioman.

But if you have other suggestions and must-be-seen islands we shouldn't miss...

1. Re: which islands to see ? 3 weeks trip


Given the dispersal of islands around Malaysia, and even the dispersal around the Peninsular and Borneo, hiring a car may not be the best way to see the islands. You will find that many of the islands can not be accessed by car. Only those with bridge or car ferry connections to the mainland, like Penang will you be able to utilise your car for.

Penang is worth visiting, but it will depend on what you count as a 'must see'.

August is super peak season at Island..such Perhentian,Redang ,Lang Tengah,Gemia Island and Kapas Island..

When you hire a car..its much more convenient to access another place..for example parking space be provide with minimum charge per night .

Here you can get all information about parking space and charge per day..
