I can tell you a great deal about air travel, coach travel and train travel throughout Malaysia and Thailand and Australia Also tourist destinations, hotels and shopping. Also about the people.

Experience in the area

I have been traveling to Malaysia for almost twelve years I have traveled extensively throughout the country also.
I do not know whether you need a separate form filled in, but I have also traveled extensively through Thailand and as I mentioned above, I am an Australian, having lived in Queensland for my earlier life and traveled the length and breadth of that state.
I am now semi retired and have the time, and the inclination to help people out.
Thank you,
Ron Egerton
