Ohh my!

Pls read the FAQ and Things to do first. Then read thru some JBR we had some really great JBR in the forum.

After that, make your own plan, ask us for advise but you must tell us, how many of you, where is your hotel, what are your liking and what is your budget? How many days you want to spend in KL? Penang? Langkawi? Melaka?

Your question is way too big for anyone to answer, pls break it down smaller.

HI

I would suggest that with such a short time, 8 days, you look at one maybe two places especially as you want to do a beach in Thailand then you need to consider connections to that beach, as well as where you are flying out of Malaysia or somewhere else.

I hate to say this, but if you do some research before asking a question it will help you get better, more detailed and useful answers from the TA community if you've already done some homework and we'll happily help you fill in the gaps for you as we all like diffreing things and all have differing budgets.

Have a good read on sites like this one, pop into a good book store and read a travel guide on the destinations you fancy visiting.

In the various forums where you want to travel, check out the ‘travel guide’ / ‘inside guides’, ‘things to do’ and ‘……………..hotels’ in the left hand panel of this page, where you look at all sorts of hotels / apartment rental / B&Bs etc and can sort by budget and read recent reviews,

<---------------------------

then on the right check out FAQs / top questions about . . . . . .

--------------------------->

Also read JBR / just back reports / trip reports etc or search and read some of the questions already posted in this forum. Lots of really useful information about already posted.

There are some really useful information and brochures from the Tourism Malaysian about many places in Malaysia, have a read and see what appeals:

www.tourism.gov.my/corporate/trade.asp…

Or have a look at Trip Advisors sister website, Virtual Tourist

virtualtourist.com/travel/Asia/Malaysia/Trav…

Or for Thailand . . .

Thailand tourism sites like are also full of useful information http://www.tourismthailand.co.uk/index.php

Or look at Trip Advisors sister website, Virtual Tourist

virtualtourist.com/travel/Asia/Thailand/Trav…

See what appeals to you, your time schedule and your budgets, as at the moment your question is almost too big to answer.

The Malaysian forum is a friendly place, pleases and thank yous go a long way when asking a question makes it seem less demanding and encourages us to help you!
