Chew Jetty, Weld Quay, George Town, 10300 George Town, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia
The team organized an amazing treasure hunt on Chew Jetty. Our host were generous enough to let us in their homes and we saw their sanctuaries and the ocean water through the floorboards! It was amazing!
George Town, Penang, Malaysia
Close by Love Lane and Chulia Street you will find an assortment of cool shops to peruse. Both times I walked past "JUNK", it was closed, but it had such an interesting mix of items, I had to take a picture. Right next door to "JUNK" there is a...

During my trip with Wildland Adventures in the depths of the Danum Valley Conservation Area in Sabah, Malaysia there is a weather tower which overlooks the valleys and hills of this vast wilderness reserve. Where an early riser can go in the...
Jalan Buluh Kubu, 15000 Kota Bharu, Kelantan, Malaysia
I'm generally more of a details guy, but now and again there's a place for a high-level, 30,000 foot view of a place (and cheesy sociology jargon). Kota Bharu's massive central market is not for the feint of heart - or the vegetarian. The central...

My travel companion wasn’t incredibly excited about our hike out to the island’s floating mosque. I’m not sure why; there’s nothing quite as enjoyable as a 12km hike when you’re weighed down by a couple hundred pounds of camera gear. Interesting...
Padang Tengku, Pahang, Malaysia
by Joe Rosli Sidek Little India is very much a place for the senses: You see the beautiful saris and fabrics in the shops, you hear the Bollywood songs, and you smell the clove and nutmeg. Centered on Lebuh Pasar between Lebuh Penang and Lebuh...

Pangkor Island, Perak, Malaysia
If popular global destinations are generally what you look for in an overseas trip, chances are Pangkor Island in Malaysia won't make it in your itinerary list. In fact, this small idyllic island located in the Straits of Malacca is not as...
