In Malaysia they drive on the left
side of the road, so the wheel is on the right side. It's a little bit
frightening, when you have never driven on the left side. Specially when you see
the traffic jam in Kuala Lumpur and
George Town. Lucky for us is, that it's
outside these city's very quiet on the road!
In Malaysia you see beside the well known cars, also unknown cars: the Proton
and the Perodua. These cars are favourite in Malaysia. They are built with a little help of Mitsubishi
Specially the Proton has a large range of models: Saga, Wira, Perdana,
Waja, Putra, Satra. When you rent a car, you get likely a Proton Wira.
The latest car company in Malaysia is the Naza.
The Perodua is a sort of sister
company of the Proton. it's specialized in jeeps (Kembara), little cars (Kancil)
and in vans (Rusa)and MPV Alza. To drive in Malaysia you need a valid driving license with a
photo or an International Driving Permit. One of these will be sufficient.
"Two years ago I
had my valid driving license with me. I rented the car for a whole week. My
first day I made a trip from Kuala Lumpur to Kuantan (East Coast). I was driving
behind a lorry and suddenly appeared a big whole in the road I couldn't avoid
it: a tyre-burst followed and I heard a strange noise at the back wheel.
I thought it would be wise to contact the rental Company in Kuala Lumpur. So I
took all the papers and walked for 2 miles to a public phone. I told the
company what happened and they advised me to change cars in Kuantan. I thought
it was a good idea. I went back to my car and changed the tyre. And with that
strange noise I drove to Kuantan. ten kilometres before Kuantan the car broke
down totally. I stopped a taxi, took our suitcases with me and the taxi driver
took us to our contact in Kuantan.
My contact was not impressed at all. "Where did you leave the car exactly?" (the
taxi driver helped me, thanks!) and "Here's another car!"
Everything perfect arranged and quickly done!
Only..............that evening......in my hotel.......I missed my valid driving
I think I left it behind at that public telephone. Somewhere between Kuala
Lumpur and Kuantan!
The rest of the
week I drove through Malaysia without my driving license. I passed
police-controls (they saw on the plate, that it was a rental car) and I even
asked the way at a policeman. No problem at all; very exciting!
Back home in Holland I got a new driving license within an hour. They thought I
lost my driving license in the jungle.
Take an International Driving License. Now it was easy, but the next
From the Thai border to
Johor Bahru (near Singapore) is the
Expressway (850 km) It's a quiet road. The speed
limit on the highway is 110 km/hour, but on some parts it may be 90 km/hour.
It's toll-road, but for a few dollars you can easily drive a few hundreds
kilometres. There is always a speed control by the police. The toll price
depends on the distance and the type of car.
Rest stops along the highway provide facilities such as food outlets, petrol
stations, phones, children's playground and toilets. There selling leaded,
unleaded and diesel petrol.
