Following the two cities of Alor Setar and George Town we headed to Ipoh, another provincial capital, before we dared to approach nature for the first time in Malaysia. We found more nature than we had originally expected and enjoyed every moment in and around the Cameron Highlands. Of course we couldn’t miss a visit to the team and a strawberry farm.
The streets in George Town’s old town have character
Our transfer from Thailand to Malaysia could have been so easy. Put quite a bit of money on the table for a ferry ticket from Ko Li Pe to Langkawi and done! We decided to try a slightly more complicated and more adventurous route and still made it. In Alor Setar and Penang we could gather some first experiences with delicious food and divers people in a country which could be a role model for other countries around the world.
Fairytale beach on Ko Rok
From Bangkok we dared a long jump to the south of Thailand. Besides numerous beaches and islands we also had in mind to discover the beautiful nature inland. We started in the Khao Sok National Park followed by Krabi and a couple of islands further south which led to a very varied program.

After a week-long excursion to Vietnam and the Mekong Delta we headed back from Chau Doc to Cambodia by boat. After a very journey we arrived in Kampong Thom, halfway between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. The town offered some more insights into provincial life in Cambodia, as well as served as a basis for an side trip to Sambor Prey Kuk, some pre-Angkorian ruins.
