5 days worth it & more questions

Hi all

Have some free time in May - 5 days to be exact.

I am wondering what people's thoughts would be in regards to a trip from Australia to Malaysia - would 5 days be worth it - give that the first day would be 80% travelling and the last day we would be able to leave late but still would need to checkout of the hotel by late afternoon.

Also where would be best to go that wont be difficult to travel to after a flight form Australia - we would like somewhere beachy and tropical - not set budget in mind at this stage - just needing some R&R - sitting by the pool or beach,reading and drinking cocktails!

Thanks in Advance.

Thanks TRavellingMitch - we are headed to Queensland in 13 days for a week - plus Australia is expensive - might have to go to Bali (only 5 hour flight) or queensland

Thanks anyway :)

Hi Samantha. Of course it's worth it! Flights from Adelaide to Kuala Lumpur are only about 7 hours. Airasia is offering Premium Class Flatbeds ( like business class) flight at very special rates ( about RM1300) so you can have a good snooze on your journey. For great beaches, the islands are best - Langkawi, Pangkor, Tioman. Or perhaps you can fly through to East Malaysia.
