Noc totalne nahovno. Po kyblovej sprche prakticky za 5.min hned spoteny. Ranajky ubohe, len toasty s dzemom a caj. V lobby teplo, tak som sa na to vyprdol a rukami som neanglicky hovoriacemu recepcnemu ukazal na auto a naznacil lietadlo. O par minut uz sedim v aute a smer 5km vzdialene letisko. Pri vstupe sa plati poplatok za auto. Vodic ode mna pytal 6k, dal som mu 4k, i ked recepcny vravel, ze odvoz je zdarma. Nech sa s nima zadrhne. Pred vstupom postavalo kopa ludi, ktory blokovali vstup do haly. Sak jebnuty moslimi. Prva security opat problem s gelom na holenie. Ale prechadzam aj s vodou. Net rychly, tak cakanie pri domacich branach. Brana c.7 pre medzinarodne odlety (2 za den, singapur a kl) sa otvara cca hodinku a stvrt pred odletom. No otvara. Security ... read more

Ono tu prakticky ani neni co hodnotit. Mal som tu len stopover na dve noci. Botanicka zahrada opat nesklamala. Je tu aj freenet na hodinu (pri jazere), dost rychli a dalsi free neobmedzeny cas pri amfiku. Bol som omrknut aj petronasky. Nic sa tam prakticky nezmenilo. Nabuduce tam ale pojdem kuknut vecer, na to som dost zvedavy. Mal som aj jedno stretko s cs ale nic extra to nebolo akurat som navstivil cast taman dagang. Nic tam zaujimave neni i ked dost chudobne bytovky ale to bol len jeden blok. Ubytko Chinatown Foot Reflexology & Massage - 2dorm, share sprcha. ubytko ako aj minule len uz s novym nazvom a novym majitelom. Potesilo, ze tu furt bol honza, inak nic dobre.

Our honeymoon started with a long drive to Melbourne to catch our Air Asia flight from Melbourne to Kuala Lumpur. We had a night stay planned in Kuala Lumpur as we both love KL and I wanted to show Todd ALOFT, my favourite hotel in KL. ALOFT is centrally located at the KL Sentral train station. You can get the express train from the airport direct to this station and it takes 25 minutes as opposed to an hour in a taxi. It is an expensive ride at 55RM per person (about the same as a taxi) but its quick and easy so my preferred option. Once we arrived in Melbourne we unloaded the car then headed to a local Italian restaurant which was a 2 min drive from our hotel. I had a Ceaser salad ... read more

Na ranajky pobrate smerom k stanici pasar seni (metro, mhd). Zapadam u inda v poulicnom stanku na parkovisku. To tu uz o mesiac asi nebude, bo tu rozmeravaju novu budovu. Davam roti placky a caj. Na ulici ako kazde rano porozkladany rozny predajci oblecenia. Vsetko poukladane na plachte na zemi. Vyzeralo to ako second hand. Podchodom okolo mesity, motylieho parku sa dostavam do oblubenej botanickej zahrady. Pri amfiku (free wifi) kontrola cs ziadosti na dnes stretko. Jedno mam dohodnute ale len na poobedie. 5 pozitivnych ohlasov avsak nie na dnes, tak teda po 30.septembri. Pri amfiku fajn umely vodopad. Po odpocinku prechadzka parkom. Nesmeli chybat fotiace sa nevesty, pospavajuci pracovnici parku po lavickach a jedna skupinka aj realne pracujucich spravcov parku. Ti tu kosili, ostrihavali stromky, cistili priestranstva. Napajam sa na dalsiu wifi (hodina fre... read more

Hajzel upchaty, tak hned potesenie z rana Prazdnou ulicou smer vlak na letisko. V 711 minam skoro vsetky prachy na jedlo. Korea je fajn, skoro vsade sa da platit kartou. Vchadzam do metra, nekonecny presun, pipam kartu, v pohode. Po par meteroch dalsi pipac, tu ma to nechcelo pustit. Tak skusam vychod pre invalidou, tam ma to pusta. Prichadza uz dost plny vlak. Miesta na sedenie nikde, tak na stojaka. Vyskakujem na prvom letisku, reku dalsi vlak bude prazdny, no hovno, este plnsi Prichadzame na terminal 1, s davom ludi sa dostavam do odletovej haly. Smer prepazka airasia. Tu zadna sranda s personalom ako v japonsku. Korejky su ozaj dake divne. Na prepazke air asia baba zistuje cez mobil ci potrebujem viza do malajzie, pyta si vystupnu letenku. Tak jej ju ukazujem v appke air asia. ... read more

I always love catching up with my friend Steve, that's 8 years now we've been meeting in random places and this time it's at the airport in Kuala Lumpur. He's just arrived from the US and I'm just down from Langkawi on route to Scotland. So we catch transport into Chinatown and have a bit of an explore round. I booked us into the Traveler's rest guest house for the night and we went out for dinner which was fabulous fish at the local Chinese hawkers which was delicious followed by a wander round the markets and a beer or two at the Reggae Bar . We didn't get out of Chinatown but I enjoyed the night anyway. Next day we left for the airport again with Steve heading off to Cambodia and me heading to ... read more

A super-hot national park, a super-tall skyscraper, a super-big cave and some more things which really aren't super-anything We didn’t spend more than a few days in Malaysia and we only went to two places, Penang Island and Kuala Lumpur. When we planned this trip we never included Malaysia in our plans at all. Laos, Vietnam and Thailand were the three main destinations. We wanted to visit Cambodia as well but we knew all along that we wouldn’t have the time. The idea of going to George Town in Malaysia came up while we were on the road. It seemed like an interesting place to visit so we went there. Since we then were in Malaysia we threw in Kuala Lumpur as well. Ake has been to Malaysia before. That was a long time ago, back ... read more

Not having a window, as is the case where I’m staying, is a bit disorienting for waking up. I’m going to avoid rooms without a window in future. I had a bit of a lie in and got up at a leisurely pace. I asked about a taxi direct to Zoo Negara and was told that it would be about RM35 which is too much, so following the advice of the zoo website I got an LRT train to Wangsa Maju station (two trains actually, with one change) which was easy enough and cost RM5.3 and from Wangsa Maju station I got a taxi to the zoo for just under RM7. There is a bus stop just outside the zoo so there is probably a way to get to the zoo by bus with some changes, ... read more

I popped over to the national park very briefly in the morning just to walk around the Swamp Loop a bit, although I couldn't spend very long. I didn't see anything particularly interesting but you never know. The only fairly common target species that I missed was hanging parrot. I missed pittas too but needed to go further to have a decent chance. The bus left from just down the road that turns off at school, by the row of shops. Kuala Tahan has a disproportionately large school because it provides basic education for the Orang Asli children in all the nearby villages. It's about 70km to Jerantut which is about an hour and a half on the bus and and easy direct bus, though only twice a day at 10 and 5 and 8 and ... read more

2:30 AM was quite an early start, but at least it meant that the Bangkok traffic wasn’t too bad. I got to the airport in good time and got through with plenty of time to spare. I had some breakfast at the airport and also got a tea. Unfortunately, this was from a coffee shop where they think it’s appropriate to charge a comparable price for a tea bag in some almost-boiling water as for a fancy coffee from one of their machines. The flight was good, I got an emergency exit row (extra leg room, yay) which again turned out to be completely empty so no one else in the group of three. The plane wasn’t overall super-empty though and there were many other rows with people sitting in the middle seats. Anyway, we landed ... read more
