So finally found the time to write about my first trip to Malaysia to investigate. The most practical and useful information gleaned from the trip, I already posted on the website in the section on Malaysia, and hereafter will make appropriate links to information. The report is mainly intended for those who will be interested to see pictures (they are, unfortunately, not very good quality happened because of machinery breakdown) and to hear just impressions.

Dry first, some practical information, if anyone is interested.

  • Time of visit: October 2011.
  • The duration of the trip: for objective reasons we had to limit the duration of the trip 10 days.
  • Route: Kuala Lumpur (only transplant in the airport) – LangkawiPenang – Kuala Lumpur.
  • The flights to Kuala Lumpur and back was flying Air Astana with a stopover in Alma-ATA. Tickets bought on the website under "find tickets" for two months before the trip to 27t.R. per person. A week before departure we checked the cost of the same route, the price had jumped to 37т.R. Flights Kuala Lumpur – Langkawi and Langkawi – Penang bought the site of the AirAsia 2800 rubles for all (for two).
  • The train From Penang to Kuala Lumpur was moved by train for 340 rubles each. The ticket was purchased in advance on the website of the Railways of Malaysia. Details about Railways in Malaysia and how to purchase tickets here.
  • Hotels: All hotels on the route booked in advance from Agoda again through your website under "hotel Search".
  • As always, collected Luggage we travel on the low, and in the end went with the half-empty backpack weighing just over 3 pounds, and a small backpack for documents and valuables. Flying to Kuala Lumpur Air Astana via Almaty. The airline flew for the first time, and in principle, all liked it, so I recommend. In flight gave beer, wine, vodka, brandy and whiskey, not cheap. Such a range of expensive booze on one flight I still have never met.

    In the airport of Kuala Lumpur arrived in the morning, and from there we just had to fly to Langkawi, but on AirAsia. For those who don't know, the international airport in Kuala Lumpur and terminal two. So we arrived in one (KLIA) and out the other (LCCT). Got from terminal to terminal on the bus for 2 ringgit and 20 minutes. More information about the airport of Kuala Lumpur is written here.

    Just arrived in LCCT and leaving the bus, we finally touched on Malay land, or rather the pavement, though, and were in Malaysia for 3 hours. This same earth we have touched only after five hours, when arrived at the hotel in Langkawi. Why so long to learn on.

    There are several variants,but in any case the route you have to be on their own. Here in a nutshell information:
    From Pattaya you need to get into Satun (city in the South of Thailand), and from there by ferry or drive to Kuala Kedah or Kuala Perlis in Malaysia already.
    I would prefer the first option, Satun, as passed through twice, it was fine. To Satun from Pattaya can be reached with a stopover in Bangkok. Travel from Bangkok to the southern bus station and there change to the bus to Satun. Previously, these buses were a lot, now looked up the schedule, there are very few, maybe just schedule them there. But even then that is quite suitable, it is night, will arrive in Satun in the morning and in the afternoon we will depart on the ferry. Basically about Satun all we've got painted - https://nashaplaneta.net/asia/thai/satun#getin
    The second option is via Kuala Kedah or Kuala Perlis. If by bus, you must first get from Bangkok to hat Yai (https://nashaplaneta.net/asia/thai/hat-yai), and from there to Kuala Kedah or Kuala Perlis as you prefer, and then onto the ferry. According to this embodiment can be on the train ride.
    The schedule for crossings, see here:

    Better, at least for the day. It is possible to buy over the Internet in place. But the place is inconvenient, you have to spend on taxi to the pier and back, and time to spend.

    Honestly, difficult to answer, after all this is a very controversial status without citizenship. It can at passport control not to pay attention to it, and the place of issuance of the passport to put the visa for 90 days as a citizen of Estonia, and can not supply a visa and even do not give, because there is in fact a list of countries that require a visa and persons without citizenship there is clearly no. Try to call the Embassy in Moscow, and even better to write them a letter at least e-mail to answer on paper just in case. And if not difficult, then let me know what happened. ...
