Here is our itinerary:

Singapore
Melaka
Kuala Lumpur
Taman Negara
Cameron Highlands
Ipoh
Penang
Langkawi
.... and than back to Singapore for our flight home.

This route is of course not exact. Just to see what we are up against. I think its very manageable in 26 days.

Some suggested switching Langkawi for Perhentian Islands.

Comments and suggestions appreciated.

It's very rushed and as you have only 26 days for all those destinations, I'd stick with Langkawi - it's only a 2 hour ferry ride and I'd cut out Ipoh. What type of transport will you be using - hire car or public bus/train? Are you flying Langkawi to Singapore, if not you could do it in reverse.

Public transportation. And yes, we were thinking of booking a flight from Langkawi or Penang to Singapore with Air Asia.

Should we buy a mosquito net? Or just take mosquito repellent?

Forget the net. Take the insect repellent. Tropical strength.

Hi, Tines I am from Malaysia, so far until now the weather is hot and raining just a while, so don't worry about that. Your trip is wonderful and wish you have a nice trip to Malaysia. All the best...:)

I'm travelling with 2 other friends during the same time frame: 25th September to Oct 4th. We are from flying from Bangalore, India - Singapore via Tiger Airways, spending the weekend during the Singapore F1 and then flying from Singapore to Penang via Air Asia on 27th night. We haven't decided on how long to stay in Penang (is one full day long enough?). We then plan on taking the ferry to Langkawi, spend a day or 2 there and then head back to KL -- which we haven't decided whether to fly via Air Asia or to go by overnight train (is there an overnight train from the mainland?).

We plan on arriving in KL on Oct 1st and then head back to Bangalore, India via Air Asia on Oct 4th.

As for accommodation, we've only pre-booked a room for 3 at ABC Hostels (US$ 85 totally for two nights) as it's Singapore F1 weekend and the city is expensive as it is. Seems like we've gotten good deals so far.

We're hoping the weather works out in our favour too :)
