Spent two nights in Kuala Lumpur, in a hostel run by a very nice Chinese man. Travel in Malaysia is a bit more “difficult” as you actually need to book ahead – our first guesthouse choice was full, our first bus choice was full – you can’t necessarily just show up and do things spur of the moment. Things are also more expensive than in Thailand, and almost cost just as much as they would in Canada.
Took an eight hour bus today, but now we’re stuck in Kuala Besut, as we missed the last boat to the Perhentian islands. Tomorrow morning we find a guesthouse and a dive outfit for 4-5 days of diving!
