Perhentian Paradise ResortPerhentian Besar Island is the larger of the two Perhentian Islands. It lies in about 50 to 55 km away from the mainland.The hotel is located just off the road. You must go up a staircase to reach the hotel. Especially during the night it can be a little bit tricky because there isn’t that much light to see where you are walking. Since it’s only a few minutes walking, it isn’t really a big problem.In the short I was very unhappy with my accommodation.

The air conditioning was a little bigger, but actually they were otherw...Read More

Attraction | "Taman Negara National Park"

Quote:
Our trip in Malaysia has experienced a slow start but to be honest ... last week was a huge momentum! Not to say that one of the greatest experiences of our journey so far!We did not really know what to expect from the national park, Taman Negara. The Lonely Planet describes it or as the oldest jungle in the world but our experience in Malaysia was that nothing is as it is described in the guidebooks. So we were quite armed with a healthy dose of suspicion when we last Wednesday morning with four people on the bus. After a boring bus ride of 4.5 hours we were in a small wooden boat dropped and from then on everything changed!In Malaysia, nearly all jungle has been cleared to ma...Read More
