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.



3. Working Out My Itinerary

After booking my tickets, then came the conundrum of where to go. Penang was on my list of places, people had advised stopping in the Cameron Highlands and Melacca was also on the cards. My itinerary was at this stage looking something like this -
Day 1 - Kuala Lumpur
Day 2 Siem Reap
Day 3 Siem Reap
Day 4 Penang
Day 5 Penang
Day 6 Cameron Highlands
Day 7 Cameron Highlands
Day 8 ?
Day 9 ?
Day 10 Kuala Lumpur
Day 11 Kuala Lumpur
Day 12 Depart

For days 8 and 9, I had the bright idea of going to Taman Negara, rather than doing the "expected" of going to Melacca. I'd heard of the trip up the river which took around 4 or 5 hours and thought that'd be fantastic - getting off the beaten track so to speak, staying in the "jungle" and doing the treetop rainforest walk the following morning.

It wasn't until this year that I finally worked out the itinerary. I realised that having two nights in Penang would only give me one day to see the things I wanted to see as I wouldn't be arriving until 5.30pm at the airport. Add a good half an hour onto that it would be at least 6.00 or 6.30pm by the time I checked in to my accommodation.
