Post by nectarin » Mon, 27 Jul 2009 5:28 pm

Hello everybody :)

I am looking buddies for travel from 7 th or 8th to 10th August. My preferences are Vietnam (Hanoi, Ho chi minh), Thailand (Krabi, Bangkok), Cambodja,...but I am opened to other interesting (and cheap) places hehe :D We can discuss about where to go (for example, we can travel to Bangkok and then by taxi--very cheap-- to Siem Riap, etc..)

If you are interested, please send me a PM or write here.

Thanks!! :)

I am interested to travel with you. You sketch out the plan fully and PM me them. I can finalize my position only after knowing the complete plan.

Count me in for 8th to 10th. Whatever it is, let's plan early so we can save on ticket fares and other bookings.

Thanks.

Ok buddies, before to check all possibilities, prices, schedules, etc... all are veeeery expensive :x

BUT we have a very nice and cheap option: TRAVEL TO SOME MALAYSIAN AISLAND. 3 options:
a) Tioman Island----> http://www.tioman.com.my/
b) Rawa----> http://www.rawa.com.my/ :o so beautiful!!
c) Pulau Besar----> http://www.pulaubesar.net/

The plan:

We meet at MARSILING MRT (red line)
take bus number 950 and go to JOHOR BAHRU BORDER
cross the border :)
take bus from JB to MERSING (around 3hours) at Bus Station
take boat from MERSING to one ISLAND (30 minutes)
enjoy!! :cool:

ok buddies, which island do u like more?? please check website, etc.
For me, Pulau Besar

We can enjoy a lot, meet new people and is very cheap the plan. Please, if anyone is interested, send me a PM or write here. Weare trying to form a nice and bif group of people.

Im opened to other possibilities like visit 2 islands, etc...only let me know

Thanks! :D

I think better way would be to goto Lavender MRT and from there take a transnational bus to Mersing. It would be cheaper (i guess) and faster.
From there were can take a ferry to whichever Island you prefer.

Also, we need to check if there's a full moon/new moon around the journey date as there would be high/low tides which might cause problems in transportation or even our pleasure plans on the island.

Uhoh, that sounds like trouble to me. Since we're planning to go on 7th or 8th, things might not look so good...

There doesnt seem to be a lot of info about Pulau Besar online. From the pics, I'd prefer Tioman + Rawa as there are three days, I'd personally look at 2 days Tioman and 1 day Rawa.

What say?
