[b]Hi guys! How's the Malaysian's weather in October? Is it still during monsoon season? Also, do you suggest to book a room in advance via internet or we could just walk in to hostels? Thanksb in advance!

The Southwest Monsoon should be over by then but the North East monsoon would be just starting, so if you were thinking of visiting the Perhentian Islands (well worth it) then do this at the beginning of your trip. I didn't book anywhere in advance when i was travelling in malaysia (which was early sept to early Oct) and I didn't have any problems getting in anywhere.

I was there this past October and it was really nice weather. I don't know if it's an annual thing or not, but several days were really smoky/hazy caused by slash and burning in Indonesia.

I don't think you should be too worried about booking in advance. If you can, all the better, but you should be okay.
