Faces of
Pulau Redang

Pulau Redang (or Redang Island)  is a beautiful tropical island off the east coast of peninsular Malaysia in the state of Terengganu. Most travellers visiting Redang come on pre-booked packages from one of the resorts on the island. It is a more up-market destination than Perhentian Islands.


Ipoh is the apital of the state of Perak and the fourth largest city of peninsular Malaysia with a population of 760,000 (Metro area: 1.4 Mil). It is scenically located amoung karst limestone hills in the Kinta Valley, about 2 1/2 hours north of Kuala Lumpur. The city is somehow forgotten by most travellers in Malaysia, however it has a lot to offer with many colonial buildings and shophouses (it used to be a very rich city around the turn of the 19th century due to tin mining) and the nature (hills, caves) around. Among Malaysians it is known for good food like the popular Ipoh Chicken Rice.

Malaysian F1 GP 2016 (Formula 1 in Sepang)

This year's Grand Prix Weekend in Malaysia will take place on 30.Sept - 2.Oct 2016. The Malaysian GP will take place for the 18th time already at the Sepang track, about 1h south of Kuala Lumpur. After being the second race of the calendar for many years, it has been moved to end of September, just one week after the Singapore Grand Prix.

Ticket prices range from RM170 (about 38 Euro, hillstand) to RM1900 (about 420 Euro, grandstand). The cheapest way to experience the race or the weekend (all tickets are valid from friday to sunday) is get a hillstand ticket, but make sure you bring an umbrella to protect yourself from the sun or the very likely tropical rain. I got a pretty bad sunburn the other year just by walking from the main road where the taxi dropped us off and then walking 15min to the entrance of the track.
So dont forget: umbrella, sunblock and water!!! Oh, and ear plugs, it is incredibly loud.
