South & Southeast Asia
is my favourite city in Southeast Asia so far. I love that there are so many trees around, and I really enjoyed the freedom of the subway and buses. It beats haggling with taxis and tuk tuks any day!
Staying for a night in
made me feel like I'm in a place surrounded by odd people. They seem friendly at first, but after a while they become scary -- the way they stare, the way they move. It's like they want you drawn into their world and then cast spells on you that would make you stay there for the entirety of your life.
The vast majority of the people in
are friendly and very few try to rip you off.
… I learned so much about the countryside and the agriculture and thoroughly enjoyed the cycling. I highly recommend to anyone.
… Just go there and find Jim's Place. This friendly guy helps whenever and however he can. An angel in Georgetown -- also with excellent food, internet, and cheap accommodation.
… Everybody should do the bike tour in Malaka. There's always a different trail and it's well recommended.
