Malaysia is one of my favourite places in the world!
It has everything from modern cities to small tin huts in the jungle and the locals are mainly really nice, warm and open. You can spent months there and still have a lot to see.
My first visit was in 2004 where I spent 3 weeks on the mainland peninsula, second visit was in 2005 where I spent a lot of time in Borneo climbing Mount Kinabalu, visiting the orang utans in Sepilok, had my discover diving at Mabul, snorkelled at Sipadan at got my PADI open water certificat at Tioman island.
Came back in 2006 and did my rescue diver course, 2007 to start my Divemaster training, 2008 to finish it, 2009 and 2010 to work and 2011 and 2012 just for some fundiving. Unfortunately I’ll miss out on 2013…
