hi, i m from malaysia. Know malaysia & singapore well. will be willing to provide advice or opinion. However, it'll be easier if you can provide your intended lenght of stay for the whole trip

im prob gonna stay about 4/5 weeks to travel the whole length of it all

is it 4 weeks in Malaysia or for your whole travel?

i suggest you stay longer at Sabah, especially Kota Kinabalu. Stay at Promenade Hotel. The price quite ok.
Many places you can go at Sabah. then stay longer at Sarawak.

Singapore is a really small country which a normal tourist can cover it all within, say, a week. But if you'd like to experience more of the local culture, stay for another week.
Try these walking maps. I really like them, colourful and bring you to little nooks around the island which tourists don't normally go to. If you'd like more information, give me a holler, I'll try to help as much as i can.

Am no expert on Asia but I do know that there is a tour that STA travel provide which takes you from Bangkok down through Malaysia and into Singapore. I think it lasts at minimum 16 days and costs around £330 (they provide acc and travel). prob worth checking out.

Hi,

Northern Thailand is one suggestion. Here is an article for you info.

THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE – NORTHERN THAILAND.

The name evokes an impression that illicit drugs are the activity of this area. Yes, it was once a notorious place. However, with strict enforcement by various countries particularly the United States and Thailand playing an important role of eradicating the drug menace by educating the many hill-tribes to have a permanent settlement to grow crops. Schools were built to educate their children on the Thai curriculum and welfare.

Chiangrai is 785 km north of Bangkok and is in the midst of mountains and hills. Across the great Mekong river is Myanmar and Laos, thus the name “Golden Triangle”. All nationalities can cross over to these countries easily by road, boats or air with valid passports and visa. Being the first to establish into a city by King Mengrai of the Lanna Kingdom, it has many ancient ruins. There are many activities you can indulge like visiting the only handcrafted White Temple in Thailand; the ever changing flowers in the most beautiful botanical garden; Hill-tribe, or the Opium National Museum; elephant riding; shopping for foodstuff; clothing; jewelries; handicrafts or ride on a long propeller boat on the Mekong river; explore the natural rock formation and caves with spectacular formations e.g. Big Cave, Fish Cave.

Of course, if you are a nature lover, go to the mountains. Doi Tung – it has a sacred hilltop Buddhist shrine built in 911 AD and it is believed that the left collar bones of Lord Buddha is enshrined in the twin pagodas. On your way up, enjoy the panoramic view then drop in to visit the Akha and Lahu hill-tribe village famous for their hand woven textiles and silver jewelries. Not satisfied with one mountain? Venture to Thailand’s little Switzerland, the Doi Mae Salong, incidentally “doi” means mountain. It sits on an elevation of 6000 feet above sea level. The air is cool and refreshing throughout the year. The settlers are ethnic Chinese descendants of the KMT nationalist army who took refuge in Thailand to escape from the Communist forces of Mainland China more than 50 years ago. The settlement has its own Christian churches, Buddhist temples, schools, locally produced oolong black tea, shops and restaurants.

You are welcome to experience first hand the local foods, way of life and customs of the Northern Thai through a village home stay.
