At the tail end of our trip to Thailand we are planning to do a three day excursion to Sabah. I'd like to go to these areas: Mt. Kinabalu(not climb it, just hike around the base), the Danum Valley Conservation area, Sungai Kinabatagan and the Semporna Archipelago. Is this overly ambitious? Should we have a home base hotel in Kota Kinabalu or is there a better alternative? Should we rent a car? How easy is it to get shuttles or other transport to these areas? Any advice is appreciated thank you!
So I am travelling on the flight that used to be called MH370 (now MH318) in April. Apparently its number was changed to 318 because 8 is a lucky number in China. I notice however that the plane is close to empty even at this point. Does anyone have stats or advice about why I shouldn't be worried? Does lightning ever strike twice?
My wife and I are traveling in Malaysia at the moment (and going on to Thailand afterwards), and brought along prescriptions for Doxycycline for Malaria protection. Doxy takes some time to start taking effect, can I get a sanity check on our instructions? [more inside]
The boyfriend and I are trying to plan a trip to SE Asia From Xmas Day to the first week of January. We are looking to fly to Bangkok or Singapore and then taking a train to the other, stopping at Kuala Lumpur and Penang on the way. Suggestions and tips on what to do, whether this is feasible or a good idea in that time of year would be greatly appreciated! We know there won't be enough time to do everything but aren't sure how much time to allocate to each city. We're open to any and all recommendations!
If you had five nights to spend on stopovers en route to Australia, and your options were Dubai, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Auckland, how would you apportion your time?
At the last minute, I'm going to Singapore (+Indonesia/Malaysia?). Not too excited, even though I should be. I don't "do" vacation. Help me plan a worthwhile 7 days! [more inside]

I've found myself in SE Asia (KL, Malaysia) with a 4-day weekend (because of Raya) and nothing to do. I'm thinking I probably should travel somewhere, but really not sure where. Where is a good place for a solo traveler to go in the area (the area being anywhere in the eastern hemisphere I can get in a reasonable amount of time)? Cheap is good, but not essential.
