Guns & Butter: Kota Kinabalu Travel Guide

TPOL has a travel philosophy whereby I do not stay in a country for more than four days but will stay for a minimum of three. Too little time and I can't see anything. Too much time and I do even less because I become complacent. Generally, this approach works.

Malindo Air Review: US Discount Carriers Take Note

I had one hour to make my connection when I arrived in KL. We were delayed on the runway for an hour so I was sure I would miss the connection. The flight attendant told me that when we arrived someone would be waiting for me at the gate with instructions on how to proceed.

Kota Kinabalu: Oh, The Seafood!

If you are a lover of seafood, you have come to the right place. KK has all sorts of foods to fulfill your under the sea desires.

Le Meridien Kota Kinabalu vs. The Hyatt Regency

What's a vacation without switching hotels every day? Looking to requalify for Hyatt Diamond, I switched to Le Meridien for one night and am glad that I did.

Kota Kinabalu: Island Hopping With Selfie Sticks

With only two days in KK, I contemplated what I should do. There was no time to become a certified scuba diver, so that was out. I lacked the mental focus to play a round of golf, so I scratched that idea. As a result, I decided to take the lazy way out. I would spend one day touring the beautiful islands of KK and the next going down the river to see the flora and fauna.

Malaysia Airlines: Business Class Review in SE Asia 

It's hard to write about flying Malaysia Airlines without thinking about the tragedy of MH 370. Following my CNN interview, my new best friend, Richard Quest, was kind enough to send my father and sister an autographed copy of his book on the subject. Even with all the experts weighing in, the mystery remains unsolved.

Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral Review

Aloft is my favorite hotel in Bangkok. It's in a great location in Seoul and my go-to airport hotel in Phoenix. While I don't recommend the Aloft Beijing, I approve of the Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral if you have a stopover in KL.

Review: Malaysia Business Class Lounge

While Kuala Lumpur's International Airport is first-class, it doesn't have the soul of Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi or swag of Singapore's Changi. The same can be said of Kuala Lumpur as a city. Sure, it has the Petronas Towers which are the tallest twin towers in the world but there's little else in the capital that makes it a city worth seeing.
