In Kuala Lumpur,i will suggest you to try Stay Orange at Petaling Street. Its quite cheap and comfortable for a traveller.
Try www.stayorange.com

In Kelantan,you can enjoy the countryside. You can do some shopping at duty free zone such as Pengkalan Kubor or Rantau Panjang which is at the border of Malaysia-Thailand.
Nothing much you can do in Kelantan but you should try the local food!!!
AWESOME!!! Nasi Dagang,Nasi Kerabu to Kuih Akok, these are food you cant find in any other parts of Malaysia. Well,if you found 1,the taste might not be the same.

I will suggest you to go to Terengganu. Enjoy the beaches and islands there. ;)

i don't know many hotels to stay in in KL. but you MUST visit Terengganu for the beaches. most of the 3 star hotels are very reasonably priced (compared to international hotel standard rates in other countries). you MUST also try the local food in terengganu...very different from other parts of Malaysia and the world, actually.

in terengganu, mind your behavior as the tolerance for over exposure (bodily) is very low especially for girls.

KL is basically a normal bustling city where everyone is pretty accepting about everything. Nightlife, visit Zouk which is the hippest thing these days. There's also Aloha which many locals and foreigners go to...and also Beach Club (all in the center of the city) full of foreigners and locals too.

15 minutes away, visit 1 Utama for a little bit of people-watching and shopping. There's also The Curve which is in Kota Damansara. There's tons of food to try at The Curve 'the street' where there's local and foreign food. not very cheap, though, not your local food stall types. but it's interesting.

Hi Ahmad,

great that you want to come to visit M'sia.
Have to take care of your manner during visit in kelantan, especially going to the public toilet, have to take out the shoes and get in using the sandals prepared outside. I had the experience being scolded by the guard as I didnt take it seriously. Anyway, ppl there are quite friendly and helpful.
Is that you plan to tour the whole peninsular? If so I suugest better travel by car using highway, if you have the international passport which is more convenient.

A few place that i recommend cant miss

- Cameron Highland-highland where could see lush of greenery and endless breathtaking scenery. A much more soothing place with fresh air and cozy weather.farming and plantation activity with lot of flowers, fruits and vegetables are one of the attravtive spot for most of the foreigner.

-Penang- an island with plenty of old bilding and could smell the strong scent of the culture from various races, where alot lot old temples, mosque and church could be found booming everywhere. However the streets abit narrow and disorganized. But it is quite convenient travel on foot or by bus. Komtar, perangin mall and Gurney plaza are the paradise for shopping lovers.

-Langkawi Island- a bigger island compared to Penang situated in the northern side, is another spot for tourism. beautiful beaches, museum, underworld water park and scuba diving are something you cant miss
also it is free trade zone where you could get the cigaratte and chocolate with better price compare to mainland.

Tell me more about your interest so that i couls be more specific giving you the opinion. how many days you need plan to stay in Malaysia?

hope to hear you soon.

regards,
simon

Take off the shoes into public toilet? I never have to do that before.I was raised up in Kelantan and never been through this before. My parents are from Kelantan as well.
And i go back to Kelantan every year.
Maybe Nik Aziz just made a new RULE for Kelantan i suppose.
LOL!!!!

First, try to visit the official web site- www.virtualmalaysia.com for an idea of where to go and what to do.

For cheap but good hotels, try www.tunehotels.com. Try to stay at petaling Street, i.e. Hotel Malaya, or Swiss Inn, etc, or along Jalan Bukit Bintang, near Federal Hotel. Most hotels there are reasonably priced. For RM 140-160, you should get nice medium hotels.

Unless you specify your interest, it is difficult to give accurate advice. Malacca, east Coast, Cameron Highlands, Langkawi, Sarawak and Sabah areall good places to go. Dont worry about food, it is OK. Get in touch with a local tour company, such as Reliance travel, they can arrange transportation for your family and accomodation also. Also try www.cuti.com.my. For hotels, trywww.wotif.com

Be careful of con men at airport, use the taxi coupon system, and get taxis from reputable firms that use the meter.
Hope this helps.

Take the train (underground) to KL. Nice and cheap enough.

I love the ice lemon tea, which is sold everywhere. :-)

I would spent at least a week on a islands. I am not sure about this season. When i was there Oct 2004, the wooden house besider the beach on Tioman island (Plau Tioman) cost only 10 local money.
