South africa travelling to malaysia

Enter Malaysia


In Cameron Highlands we wanted to spend a few days trekking and relaxing and raised our budget to stay at the Century Pines Hotel. With a large, clean double room and good service with lots of information about trekking in the area we raised the budget to 300 MYR per night.

In Georgetown, on Penang Island, we opted for a mid-range downtown hotel. We found the Bayview Hotel very close to the gastronomic eden of the city -the Red Garden- with a good double room for 200 MYR.

Market in Kotah BaruOn arrival in Kuala Lumpur we had a room booked at the Pullman KLCC Prince Hotel. For a price of 314 MYR we had a great double room with all the usual amenities of a quality hotel such as swimming pool, great breakfast buffet and spectacular views of the Petronas Towers. Without a doubt, it was a wise decision to book a hotel of a certain level after the long flight to rest and get strength for the trip that awaited us.

This African country is highly prepared for the tourist and it is possible to take organized tours as you like and do any kind of activities you can think of. The problem is to be able to stop! There is so much on offer that you will not stop wanting to try everything!

Although three weeks may seem like a long time, South Africa is quite a big country so I decided to focus on a few places to be able to enjoy in a relaxed way and do all the activities they could offer me with time.

Regarding food, as I mentioned, as there is western food almost everywhere, many days, to save money and eat a little “healthier”, I shopped at the supermarket (this way, I had breakfast and dinner at home).

As always, my motto is: NO Spending PENURIES AND NO SPENDING! and, in this case, I tried to control my budget a little more than usual to be able to invest my budget mainly in activities.

Documents for travel to Malaysia

Part I: Everything you wanted to know before traveling to Southeast Asia (or the FAQ section), where you can find many of the answers to questions I have been asked in the blog and also in social networks.

With the exception of yellow fever, vaccinations are not mandatory but recommended. It is best to consult the Travel Medicine department of any hospital or go to Stambulian/Vaccinate or similar to see what is appropriate in each case.

When traveling, I had the following vaccinations: Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Tetanus-Diphtheria, Typhoid Fever, Yellow Fever, Polio, Meningitis. I did not get the Rabies, Cholera or Japanese Encephalitis (which is not available in Argentina).

I was asked for my vaccination certificate only once during the whole trip, at the Bangkok airport to check if I had the Yellow Fever vaccine. Although they do not ask for it if you can prove that you are not coming directly from Argentina, I personally recommend to always carry it.

Thanks to its tropical climate, Malaysia is rich in biodiversity and has a population of over 30 million people. Its economy is stable and enjoys one of the best economic records in Asia due to its natural resources and scientific sector.

Yes, some vaccinations are recommended for visiting Malaysia. The WHO and ISTM recommend the following vaccines: typhoid, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, rabies, polio, MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), meningitis, TDaP (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis), and influenza.

There are many mosquito-borne diseases in Malaysia, such as dengue, malaria and chikungunya. Malaria can be prevented with medication. However, the best method to prevent all other infections is the use of mosquito repellents, mosquito nets and appropriate clothing.
