I have been exploring South-East Asia for over twenty years and have visited some of the best destinations in the region. Through my blog, I want to share some interesting travel tips, my experience of driving across Asian destinations and some of the best places to explore in this region. I have undertaken hundreds of road trips, across Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia. Most of the information in this blog comes through my own road trips and adventures in the exotic locations I have visited. 

I have, in the past followed in Anthony Bourdain's footsteps and visited most of the restaurants his team explored in their shows. Join in on my adventures and follow my trails on Instagram & Facebook Page.

The Malaysian population is an interesting mix of various religions. Travelling across the country you will come across beautiful architecture in temples & mosques. During my various visit to Malaysian cities, I have explored a number of beautiful mosques. Here are some of my favourite locations I visited during my trips.

Exploring South Coast including Ulladulla, Mollymook and Jervis Bay

Lake Burrill is approximately 300km south of Sydney. August is a great time of the year to explore southern highlands as the weather is quite cold at night and days are warm and sunny at this time of the year.  The roads are not very crowded and it is quite easy to find accommodation along the coast. Lake Burrill and surrounding regions are popular for fishing all year round.  


The Snowy Mountains Region is home to premier skiing resorts in NSW, Australia. Easily accessible from Canberra (1.5-hour drive) and Sydney (4.5-hour drive), the region attracts large crowds from around the country. The ski season begins around mid-June and lasts till mid-September. Early snow is sure to bring hordes of skiers and tours to this region and accommodation at Thredbo and Persihers is quickly taken up.

Kuala Lumpur is a thriving metropolis offering lots of activities to the single traveller for family travel. This is a very popular destination for couples going for honeymoon. With a beautiful mix of people of various ethnic and religious background, one can immediately see diversity in cultural lifestyles and beautiful blend of traditional and modern. Malaysia has a rich cultural heritage and for a more keen traveller can explore areas like Penang and Malacca. 

If you do not like using public transport you can rent a mid-size to economy car for around 50RM per day from KL airport. Make sure you are fully insured when you rent a vehicle. The road conditions are pretty good. However, for newcomer driving without GPS is a practical nightmare. Rent GPS for extra 10RM and you are ready to rock. Some of the hotels in the city do not have parking, therefore, you might have to park in the metered parking outside. Watch out for the timing and always carry change. I stayed at Hotel Sempurana at Bukit Bintang. It was newly opened in 2008. Rooms were rather small but the service was very good and staff very friendly. Around the corner, you can find some other hotels around 80RM. 

You will be surprised by the nightlife of the KL city. Most street side restaurants open around 6 pm and stay open till 4 am in the morning. People socialize, chat, watch soccer matches while sipping tea Tarek and enjoying their meals. For a western, this might appear as a shocking experience where shopping centres close around 5 and nothing much happening during the weekdays. 

Here is a typical itinerary if your plan to explore KL in three days

Day 1

Stay at Bukit Bintang, visit Shopping centres in the neighbourhood. In the evening visit the bars in KLCC and visit Petronas tower. Later drive back to Bukit Bintang and find a nice restaurant for dinner while enjoying the crowds of fellow travellers in restaurants and bars.

Day 2

Drive down to Putra Jaya and explore the beautiful city, building and take a cruise in the river. Drive back to the city by mid-day and visit Masjid India. Get off at Masjid Jamek Station and walk down to Pasar Seni Station. You can enjoy local food for around 6MG (1.5$). From there you can walk down to Sultan Abdul Samad Building, Merdeka Square, National  History Museum.
