My girlfriend and I are looking at going to Malaysia for a month next June(2005) We would like to stay in one place for the entire trip, and were wondering about renting a place on a beach to stay by the week?, or month? We are just starting to plan, and have no idea where we should look at staying, just that we would like a place that's not a resort, and that's fairly quiet(i.e. romantic) Where would be some good spots to stay?, and what should we look at budgeting for a place to stay? It does'nt have to be luxurious, just clean and simple.
Thaks in advance for any responses!!
Mark, the best advice is to got to the travel helpers area of the home page and from there select Asia and then Malaysia then contact one or two of the travel helpers for Malaysia direct and get guidance information from them.
Check out Perhentinas in Malaysia.
Great beaches, cystal clear water, lots of turtle to see.
If you're from the other part of the world, taking more than 10 hrs to reach M'sia.. why not visit around Malaysia island..rather than staying in one place for few weeks.
There're many great Islands in M'sia..
At least you can visit few Island in a month. Travelling journey cost isn't that high over here if you were to travel by coach or domestic flight(air asia which now serves very cheap fare from one point to the other.)
Not a resort, quiet and romatic...hmm.... I would suggest you book a chalet at the island like Perhentian, Tioman. Or if dont prefer island, what abt Cherating beach where you can experience kampung ( traditional village) environment.
Just a suggestion...
