[Music] sleepy [Music] wow [Music] so [Music] good morning from koala a bee suit we are on our way to the parentings again and we went before and we loved it so much that we decided to come back uh we just got off of a sleeper bus it was about seven and a half hours from kuala lumpur down to kuala lumpur so if you don't know anything about the parentings they are group of around five islands there's two of them that are the main ones castle and bisar and we're going to castle which is also the small island and we'll be staying on the south side at a little beach called pitania which we've been to before yeah the parentings were originally just known as a stop right and that's literally what the proteins means in malaysia it was a stopover for um traders on the way from singapore to bangkok this is kind of halfway along the south china sea just off the east coast of malaysia so i'm looking forward to taking you along for four days this is monday morning we'll be heading back on friday and it's pretty much just gonna be a week of sun hopefully snorkeling food hiking yes so it's a great time we have timed it very close to the monsoon season so we'll see how that goes but yeah fingers crossed we have timed it perfectly so we'll explain more about that later but yeah come with us along to the ferry [Music] so [Music] so we have arrived we've had a little nap we were both exhausted we didn't sleep much on the bus so we came in just crashed out after breakfast but we are here and like i said this is called petani beach there's a fairly strong chance you've never heard of bittani beach or the parentings in general um they have a horrible um reputation in malaysia for being overlooked by places like thailand and philippines and places like that which we think is vastly unjust absolutely um and that's not just for the parentings that's for the whole country and i'm sure we'll come to that in another vlog but for right now this is one of my favorite places if not our favorite place in malaysia and this is why we are back and you might be asking where are you staying why are you staying in a shed and you're right it is basically a shed um we are paying about 100 ringgit a night for this room which is about 25.25 us which may at the moment seem kind of over the top considering our place in kl is about 23 a night yeah but it's very simple we have mosquito net obviously because we are not jungle island and there's many mosquitoes our bathroom is about as rudimentary as you could possibly have it is cold showers and it's pretty much open to the world in that regard we also have a fan because there's no ac so that's something to keep in mind as well it's gonna be very very basic but it's lovely and it's right on the beach and you can literally hear the the waves crashing all night long and it's just the most magical place to be it really is simplicity is the key for this place and just in case you needed understanding of exactly where we are and if you are feeling a little bit overwhelmed by the we'll call it rustic charm of the place this is why it's so wonderful [Music] that's the sea that's the south china sea it's really right outside of our door we are literally a stone i can throw a rock from here literally it's one of the few times where i've able to say you're a stone's throw from the water quite literally but we're about to go have a little sunbathe right now maybe a little splish splash get some tan but yeah we're very happy to be back here and officially around the island it's one of our favorite places in the world so it's absolutely stunning i still haven't learned to demo in here yet no he hasn't why bother when someone will do it for you [Music] we have this place to ourselves pretty much i think there's one other group that are here right now same as last time we were here so we get this entire beach to ourselves gorgeous sand and the water is clear as you could ever ask for it's dead hot today though dead hot we just had lunch had some street start checking just had her what do you call it uh pattaya which is basically like a vegetable fried rice with um an egg on top so it's really cool always really good here dead cheap uh manual costs with three dollars american jessie's with 350 or something yeah so dead cheap here for the whole week i'll give you a rough run rundown of how much it cost us on friday but um we're taking it easy today not going to get out too much away from uh patani where sunday is the second time today because it is monthly and we're not guaranteed perfect weather all week because we are right on the edge of monsoon season originally we were going to come in november but we realized that monsoon season will be right in the middle of it at that point so we were like screw it let's just go for the last week that we can and because they're actually closed in november too so um so we're hoping we can hang on to some of this weather all week and we'll get out and see the rest of the island a little bit but today we're gonna get some drinks down the beach later on play some scrabble and then come back and get some dinner so yeah hope you're all having a wonderful day so we've actually both been feeling a bit rough um we've both had bright pounding headaches most of the afternoon um probably a combination of um not drinking enough not getting much sleep last night and then probably not eating too much today but regardless we are grabbing a drink tonight we're going to go out instead of being nap there jess is still hurting a little bit i'm feeling a bit better but we're all down the beach to a lunan resort see if they're happy i'll grab a couple of beers and play some scrabble so we'll come back and get some dinner but yeah let's get it rough in this one so we're just having a wander down now to the living resort how you feeling jess i'm okay my head's a bit tender you get tender we're both we're both not 100 jess is still a bit worse than me um i think we should get really nimble or something here so we're going especially if we're gonna have a beverage so we've got the scrabble so we're going proper holiday makers today just chilling by the beach playing scrabble but alone is beautiful and we'll probably come back here a couple of times at least yeah boom but it's just just down the beach not far it looks like we may get a wee sunset as well not much but you can see it all right guys i've taken a bit of downturn i'm feeling a bit rough now i'm feeling a bit rough we're over at london um this is a gorgeous gorgeous replace sun's starting to go down grab some chips hoping that some food in the valley makes me feel a bit better jess how are you feeling i'm okay my head still hurts really bad but the beer is helping i'm just not wonderful it's not good the first night away but uh yeah probably an early night tonight everything looks sweet but see if i feel after these chips [Music] do [Music] all right guys we have had our breakfast um i'm feeling pretty much 150 right now ready to go jess is still coming out of her yeah i'm a bit tender but we're going to try and sweat out the last of it by going for a little hike um so if you haven't ever looked at a map of the parentings which you probably have not you have no reason to you would see that all the places that you can stay especially on the small island are all dotted right on the edges and the inner side of the island is pretty much just jungle and rainforest the whole way through so everywhere that you can stay eat etc is literally on a small strip that just runs around the outside so it's really really really cool and to get to each of those places without using a water taxi which you will probably use at some point we'll show you um there are there is one path that just goes the whole way around the island so that's what we'll be doing today we'll be going from katani down the south on over to coral beach which is on the west side of the island coral bay sorry pearl bay and then we'll cut across to long beach which is the biggest area that you can go to and then come back along on the south east side along to britannia and through the fishing village and stuff so it's pretty much going through jungle the entire time which is pretty sick nice and humid for us to sweat out on the island is a great place to hike so if you're into hiking i mean bring your shoes or bring your hiking boots and you will have a blast so this is cool so we have been giving you guys a lot of tips on what to bring what to do at bhitani or in the parenthesis and this is a big big big tip so make sure you bring some offspray um if you're anything like me and most people are mosquitoes love you bugs love you and especially in the humidity of the rainforest here um you're going to want it so make sure you pack this it is a lifesaver or be like me and don't get both by mosquitoes at all we cannot be like eastern i know it's impossible yep so bring it make sure you bring your offspring so what jess is just saying there is that you see all these holes down here one of the best things about this beach is the random little wildlife that you can see you've got the monarch lizards which i'm hoping to show you at some point before we go they haven't been as prominent as the last time we were here but then we've got loads and loads of little crabs that fire about the beach i don't know what kind they are but they're brilliant and then white crabs yeah and then right here these are the remnants of some turtleness actually and uh our host um that runs the chalets he's actually got three baby turtles that he's gonna be releasing this week so and the last time we were here we think we came across an unfortunate ambush where the monitor had managed to eat all the eggs we think so but it's dead cool to see uh all the wildlife that you can get in here it's really really cool but we're just about to head up the stairs now onto the path which chills the whole way around the side of the island um one of the best things about it is being able to find all these other little tiny beaches that no one's there it's the rarest skill in the world to be somewhere where you feel like the island is actually kind of yours for a little bit um these are the only ones there it's so nice but let's get our sweat on [Music] so the paths here aren't in the best kept shape so be wary of that if you do come here like i said be careful oh my god that was almost me as well so a little bit further along um and one of the things that you can do if you're on a really small budget is a lot of places have tanks that you can actually rent out for the night so you can come here if you're in a proper backpacking budget about a tent for nine dollars a night and you get pretty much the same experience [Music] so we've been really enclosed for the most part and you're just kind of consumed by the green and then every so often you get a little break with the water but right in front of us here big people and you can just start to get an idea of how far back it goes literally if you just go straight across there's nothing the jungle all the way to the other coast it's the entire inside of it is untouched which is really amazing and it's so rare to find these days [Music] all right so the first leg of our little hike is done we just arrived at coral bay which you can see over here magic max spin boom gorgeous water the everywhere the clearest blue water it's really it doesn't get old it doesn't it really doesn't tell [Music] so one thing again is the the parenting's really good for is coming to get your diving certificates so that they have all these hotels that are pretty much just based on being dive resorts so you can come spend four nights and you get your paddy certificate at the end of it your open water you can do your general one we've actually talked about doing it a few times um but we just haven't pulled the trigger on it but we probably will at some point because we really wanted to do it in other places we're approaching long beach right now and there's a big sign right up here and it says you are here we're not here we are the opposite end of the of the path so if you've never been here before if you haven't looked at the map you're about to get dead confused i didn't know it was gonna be as heavy as this i thought it was just gonna kind of trace the edge of the island but we're getting pretty high into the jungle at this point and they said the path is pretty in pretty bad shape [Applause] [Music] so gently as a star i don't like it at all i think that stephen gave me this to distract me oh no okay no keep going okay hey help me [Music] oh my god i hate this so much hear that i'll just sit up here and look at the butterflies i'm just huffing to the camera steven just saw a six-foot monitor okay lizard demons i'm keeping my eyes peeled because i feel like they're everywhere you cannot see then they're gonna kill you i'm not impressed i don't think men know they're talking about most of the time anyway please don't leave me now i'm scared of butterflies the butterfly comes at me i'm like guys i'm so scared i did little dinosaurs please don't put this part in this vlog the water monitor and the butterflies are like batman and robin this does not look good what is that out there would you take me to some my death and i just heard rustling in the leaves so water monster's ready to eat us so i'll leave it to you so i think we're out of the the jungle oh we're still in the jungle technically but uh out of the main stretch of unwalkable path basically we're having to push through everything so we're almost at the fishing village there's nothing much to do in the way of you know attractions or anything there's a lot of moss that you can look at um there's a few cafes and stuff we played volleyball there last time with some of the locals which was amazing it was a good experience for us we'll hopefully do that this week but other than that it's just i can go through and see what it's like and yeah how are we feeling jess i'm good what's that what's that code for my eyeballs are burning there's a little girl running around can we go here or around yeah thank you thank you oh hello hello so the guy there asked us if we were muslim i'm assuming because jesus is wearing the shorts and i'm wearing a tank top uh i'm assuming if we said that we were muslim jess probably wouldn't have been allowed to come through dressed like that but but the last time we were here jess was dressed in a swimsuit that went up her butt and there's the day before one of the really sacrificial holidays again not realizing that they had a mosque that it was a holiday and that you know we had no clue we had no we were playing complete ignorance and she wore us around as much as she could you know but it's a really pretty mosque actually yeah our loop is complete britannia is just over there we have made it big loop of the south half of the island pretty good fun jess fungus yes good look at that happy smiley faces i'm good i just do not like the rainforest but we have done it and we've earned our lunch for sure absolutely knackered i've been probably walking like three hours two hours two and a half two hours and 56 minutes nice so right three hours but awesome but we're about to go for lunch because we're both absolutely i'm literally pruning because i was that's how bad i am um but we're about to go just run into the sea right now try and cool down before we eat something when you hang out you're close to dry in these kind of areas because it's so woody and it's so just in the middle of the rainforest um ants like to get all of your clothes you have to make sure that you get them off and if you need any reason why this isn't heaven on earth there you go there's three of them there's nemo [Music] [Music] fishies good evening we've all had we've had our cold shower sorry dawn we've had our cold shower and we are now heading back along to london to try a second attempt at our scrabble date last night um so last night we're both not feeling the best me especially so we're gonna grab a beer too as the sun goes down as you can see behind us absolutely bloody beautiful we've got a good day a long hike we've earned our beers and then we'll head back to patani and get some dinner this is our ray-ban commercial guess who we're back at um our usual sea has been taken yeah and apparently they have not really demanded yeah hoping that he says something stupid and they have to go and go somewhere else [Music] if you stay on long beach if you stay on really any of the areas you're going to run into some dry resorts which means that there aren't there isn't alcohol served at these places for botany purposes if you see it if you stay there walk 100 meters down the beach and you will come to luna this is where we are right now and they have beautiful cocktails and they have a sunset hour which means that there's like a half price or whatever um discount on the drinks and it is not bad for malaysia if cheap alcohol is your thing malaysia generally is not the place to go like another island i kind of remember the life of me right now they haven't done a vlog yeah they're j3 so like this i love you very much my diwali in is at her wit's end she's about to lose she's banging her tiles aggressively against the table no that's amazing i don't know how dark this will be but just the record it came into the wire and i won by five points for some munchkin chip katani well i do not know if you can see any of this whatsoever keep up my face i don't know if you can see any of this whatsoever but we're climbing through the rocks right now and it's high tide and it's very dark we're just trying to find our dinner we're back at the tanni for the evening after a lovely night of playing scribbling drinking some beverages so we're going to leave you tonight we'll see you in the morning we're going to have a little beach day tomorrow morning and then easy day then we're going to maybe go kayaking see if i can keep them sorry so have a good night we're going to enjoy the rest of our night bye [Music] [Music] you
