    Pulau Rawa, South Malaysia, Malaysia
    Best to liaise with the hotel, that you are staying with on Rawa Island, with regards to your boat/ferry transit from Mersing. Having a confirmation on pick-up/arrival time from the Rawa Island Resort counterpart is much better than relying on the whim and fancy of the local boatmen.

    Johor Bahru, South Malaysia, Malaysia
    Not a lot to say about this town as a place to visit really, cheap dvds compared with singapore i guess. But its a great place to get Air Asia flights to and from as its only 30 min from singapore and the flights are a fraction of the cost.

    Kuala Lumpur, West Coast Malaysia, Malaysia
    The best way to conmute between the airport and the city is to take the ultra modern railway. It is fast, clean and takes you from the middle of the airport to the city faster than traveling by car

    Kota Kinabalu, Sabah Region, Malaysia
    I used KK as a base for diving in Sipadan and wildlife sanctuaries throught Sabah. I strongly recommend you climb mount Kinabalu; you set off very early so you can reach the top before clouds cover the sky and you witness the most majestic sunrise. The descent takes no where near as long

    Kuala Lumpur, West Coast Malaysia, Malaysia
    Kuala Lumpur (or "KL" Kay-El) is a nice mix of exotic three-culture melting pot (Malay, Chinese and Indian), and modernity. The latter quickly presents itself from the moment you step off the plane in the form of a beautiful and grand airport, the KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airport), and also the fast train that will take you from the airport to the city in 28 minutes - now why it has to be that far from the city is still a mystery to me. The currency is Malaysian Ringgit (MYR) and it's pretty stable - about MYR3 to a US$. Most KLians speak English well - and most taxicabs are helpful, has a phone ordering system, and can issue receipts.

    Kuala Selangor, West Coast Malaysia, Malaysia
    Look out for cheap seafood restaurants at the edge of the town nearer to the Selangor River. Around the area there are small shops selling sea/river catches and processed fish stuff (fishballs, fish paste and etc). Grab their "ha peng" prawn crackers if you see any. Yummy addictive crackers!

    There are no public transport other than the bus. Not very reliable and you have got to wait quite sometime before the next one comes along. You will have better luck if you are driving.

    No grand hotels there. Most you will see are cheap motels. Kuala Selangor is not very develop. A fishing village/town.

    Kampung Sitiawan, West Coast Malaysia, Malaysia
    Look for "yau char queh", a type of deep fried flour bread/pastry in the Setiawan morning market located behind the local food court. Delicious stuff.

    Sitiawan is also famous for their "Hock Chiew Peah" aka "Kong Peah". It's a type of Chinese hard bun cooked in a clay oven and stuff with lard and onions. You can only find Hock Chiew Peah around Setiawan and the near by village/towns, and no where else in Malaysia.

    Look out for their local dishes as well, the "oh chien" oyster omelet, "ang chio mee sua" red rice wine noodles, and "loh mee" a type of noodles cooked with baby bamboo shoots.

    During a hot day, you can also try the "cendol" a type of Indian dessert in front (or near) of a supermarket called Fajar.

    There are no classy hotels around the area. 3 Star max. Many cheap inns and motels.

    Taxis and local bus for transport. Will work better for you if you have a car.

    Setiawan is about 15mins away from Lumut, where the jetty to take a 20mins boat ride to Pangkor Island.

    Tanjung Karang, West Coast Malaysia, Malaysia
    Small town with limited things to do. Fresh and cheap local seafood.

    Bus and taxi as transport. But better if you have your own car. No classy hotels, just cheap inns and motels.

    Lumut, West Coast Malaysia, Malaysia
    The jetty to Pangkor Island is located here. Not much of good food in Lumut but you can travel 15 to 20mins out to Teluk Rubiah or Pantai Remis for cheap local seafood.

    You can purchase plenty for cheap sea harvest including dried salted fish and snacks. You can actually get cheaper stuff here compared if you bought them in Pangkor Island.

    Quite a number of hotels, motels and inns here but nothing really fancy. Locals are friendly but remember to bargain when buying your sea harvest or other goods from stalls.

    Taxis and bus as transport but they are not that convenient. Get bus tickets in and out of Lumut. The main bus stop is just a 10 minutes walk from the jetty.

    Dont buy boat tickets from touts. Get them from the counter. Remember to buy only one way. You can get cheaper tickets back from Pangkor.

    Gopeng, West Coast Malaysia, Malaysia
    Plenty restaurants selling exotic food at night in Gopeng. Fruit fox, terrapin, frogs, snakes and many more.

    Limited taxis, and busses are not convinient. Good to have a car.

    No other entertainment there. This is more of a 'just passing' town.
