Bus options...
Sorry for the delayed response, we haven't been checking our blog much lately. I think the public bus option is much easier to find once you are in either Jerantut or Kuala Tahan. I don't know how to find it in KL, but the station we were taken to on the way back to KL was not one we had been to before so I think it's a matter of finding the right station to leave from. Unfortunately I don't remember the name of it but I would suggest asking around, not the tourism people, but other locals and such. They might know. We of course only found out on the return trip so that's not much help, but try asking other travelers you run into, that's how we found it on the way back.

how do we find these money saving options?
How do we find the public bus from KL to Jerantut and the next bus from Jerantut to Kuala Tahan?

True for us, but I'm sure others have enjoyed it
We just shared our experience there, but we can't say what other peoples experiences have been. Maybe they were having a rough day or the owner was in a weird mood, but we told it how it was for us. When you're traveling, you should try things for yourself and see how it is as of course things can change and different people have different ideas of what is good and bad.

Thanks for the correction...
That is what we were told by folks selling the show, I guess they could have told us anything.

The lights show is directed by Zhang Yimou, not Ang Lee. You got it wrong. Zhang Yimou is not the director of Crouching Tiger.

Cool photos
I don't know much about Ankor Wat, so it was neat to see those photos. It looks pretty amazing.

The Palace Closure Scam
Glad to hear that you didn' fall for that scam. That was the first thing I thought of when I saw you were in Bangkok. I have a friend who fell for it pretty bad. He didn't realize it was a scam even when he was back in the States. He told everybody that it was closed for renovations while he was there. Somebody finally had the heart to tell him it was a scam.

Drinking out of a plastic baggie
I've encountered the to-go plastic baggie thing too, but mainly with beverages bottled in glass. The glass is too valuable to allow out of the shop so if you want it to go, into the platic baggie the Coca-Cola must go.

Leeches and Party Shoes!
Sounds like a good adventure. I didn't realize leeches were so sleuth.

One more clarification...
It's pronounced "pooh-ket"

Pronouciation guide...
That's really funny, because we've been hearing it pronounced the Thai way, it didn't even occur to me. (I think Trevor realized it though). Yeah, the PH is pronounced like a regular P, not an F. =)

town name/infamy?
So I didn't even read beyond the first paragraph that said "Phuket Town" is known for prostitution... really? Is that really it's name? Can I use this? It's almost too good... :)

Malay-Dutch culture
Hey Cara, I'm loving the travel blog and look forward to following you guys the coming 3-4 months - keep it up! Interesting you had to travel all the way to Malaysia to get some exposure to (old) Dutch cultural influences, after being an office neighbor to a Dutchman for all those years at Hawaiian Vacations! Enjoy it all - I'm jealous! Cheerio/Con
