When I planned a trip, normally if possible, it will cover at least 2 places. A few trips I made before are Penang-KK-Kuching-Penang, Penang-Jakarta-Bandung-Penang and Delhi-Umrah.

Now this trip came to mind for end of next year and I would like to share here.

  • Day 1: Alor Setar – Hatyai  | By car
  • Day 1: Hatyai – Bangkok (8.30 – 9.55 – AirAsia) 2 nights Bangkok
  • Day 3: Bangkok – Chiang Rai (9.30 – 10.50 AirAsia) 2 nights
  • Day 5: Chiang Rai – Chiang Mai | Bus
  • Day 7: Chiang Mai – Hatyai (10.40 – 12.45 AirAsia)
  • Day 7: Hatyai – Alor Setar | Car

7 Days 6 Nights Trip. The budget for travel cost is RM300 only and I will cover the most of Thailand. No what I have to do is wait for AirAsia sale.

This is the only beach in Langkawi I went for a swim for the last 20 years. When I was a kid, I like Tanjung Rhu which is now developed and became private beach.

It is just about 150 meter long but the best beach for me in Langkawi. It has all the facilities such as toilet, huts, BBQ place, prayer hut and a few cheap chalets.

Temengor Lake Fishing Trip

FacebookTwitterGoogle+

This was my first fishing trip ever on a lake. We spent 3 days 2 nights in a house boat at Tasik Temengor. I felt the time was so long maybe for a person who is not-so-into-fishing like me. But I like the view and the Belum Forest even I was not successful with fish.

The boat was from Arus Belum. Check out the site for more details. It has 14 beds, 2 toilets, kitchen and karaoke set.

The first day, we traveled 20km to the first fishing port and stayed there for a night. Second night we spent near Raok Waterfall. The whole distance traveled by boat was 50km.

A good experience but no more for me.

Boarded a boat for a trip to waterfall.

I had no idea what I was doing!
