Can't go with you, but I'm sure you will have a GREAT time! My husband spent about 6 weeks touring around in Malaysia and had a blast.

If you travel on the west coast of Malaysia you should stop in and see a friend of ours David. He collects touring cyclists like some people collect vintage bicycles. Here is is web page below, and enjoy Malaysia.

The people of Thailand are extremely kind and welcoming to tourists. The local wai is very gracious.

Something about those two sentences that makes me feel a bit uneasy. Makes you wonder how he acquires all of those bicycles.

I can highly recommend a stay with munusamyreddie’s (he goes by David with English speakers) family. It was one of the most enjoyable and authentic Malaysian experience we had during our 5 months in the country.

I made a VIDEO to help describe our time there.
