Malaysia and Cambodia


This is about my upcoming trip to Malaysia and Cambodia. The first part is pre-trip - information about flights, itineraries, accommodation and all the things that you need to do to plan an overseas holiday. This is my first trip to Asia and I hope it may help others. Comments are very welcome and anyone who has travelled to Malaysia and/or Cambodia, please feel free to comment and offer any advice or tips that you think would be helpful. As of today ( 28th February) , in exactly 11 days (minus 30 minutes) I will be in Kuala Lumpur.

I had the most amazing time and hope you enjoy reading about my trip. Each post is numbered and I'm doing them in order from start to finish - a little like a diary.



8. Expenses 2 - Accommodation

Accommodation rates were quoted in either US Dollars or Malaysian Ringitts (MYR)
In the case of US Dollars, at present US$17 is AUD$18.9880, or $19. And 35.00 MYR is AUD$11.4946, or $11.50.

Kualar Lumpur, 1 night = $35.03
Siem Reap for 1 nights = $38.00 (US$17 per night)
Penang - 3 nights = $35.00 (35MYR per night)
Tanah Rata 1 night = $16.43 (25MYR per night)
Melacca 3 nights = $136.95 (139MYR per night)

Actually, the rate for Heeren House is 119MYR but there is a surcharge of 20MYR for weekends and public holidays. Considering I'm checking in on the Friday and checking out on the Monday, I'm not sure I understand why I've been charged 3 lots of 20MYR extra. Two lots, yes, but three? Seems a bit strange, I'll have to clarify it with them when I check in.

Total $261.41
