Our Malay peninsula west coast journey would actually start in Phuket, Thailand – just north of the Thai-Malaysian border. The trip would end in Kuala Lumpur, after visiting a sequence of destinations including Langkawi, Penang, Melaka and Port Dixon.
Your eating out options in Lembongan are plentiful enough. Every guesthouse offers a menu, and there’s a good variety of standalone restaurants and warungs. During our 8-day stay on the island we had the opportunity to sample much of what was on offer, but which of our Lembongan island eating out experiences would stand out from the
