Alone Hitch Hiking in Malaysia tips to hitch hike hitchhiking tips

First time being a Hitch Hiker

Believe it or not, my first hitch hiking was in Malaysia, Port Dickson. I was lured there by the images of beautiful beaches and affordable travel. When my friend and I were there, we are disappointed with the beaches and decided to just chill within the self contained hotel. We stayed at Thistle hotel and after a day in the hotel, we were extremely bored. We had checked with… (read on in Trip)

Hawaii - Canadian Couple

I never hitch a ride before or given a stranger a ride but it all changed in Hawaii.

As my then boyfriend was driving, I spotted a couple who seems to be stranded in the middle of nowhere. I recognised this scene from movies, and I said, hey, let’s offer give those strangers a ride out!

My bf was apprehensive about the entire “set-up” because we had been travelling for… (read on in Trip)

Singaporean Hitch Hiker

I been hitch hiking for several months now and i would like to share my story.

Like most people, I take the public transport to work, if i am lucky, my parents would send me to work. However, taking public transport during the peak hours is not so pleasant at times so i switch to cycling or kick-scooting to work. It was fun for a while but it’s quite dangerous since i am… (read on in Trip)

Skudai → Kuala Lumpur 320km Hitchhiked by Mirzusko 2 1
Three people skudai johorbahru kualalumpur malaysia

Get money instead of a lift and used it for a bus :D

Started thumbing in front of AEON shopping centre in Skudai. No one pulled over but an old man passed by asking us where to go and suggested us to take a bus. After thumbing in 2 hours, we moved to the junction nearby Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. A man with his "perodua" pulled over and let us in. He didn't drive us to Kuala Lumpur but to Larkin Bus Station instead. We were… (read on in Trip)

Regensburg → Freiburg 469km Hitchhiked by Yooks 4 1
Two people

Not much to tell about this ride. The man took us from Regensburg and dropped us off at the next gas station in the direction of Nuremberg. One interesting fact is that he was not actually going towards Nuremberg but I'm guessing he liked us that much that he decided to drive us to the next gas station.

Taking a small detour

The next person to pick us up from the gas station on the highway to Nuremberg was a middle aged chubby fellow driving a Mercedes. He works as some kind of technician for theater production so he gets to travel a lot around Europe. It would seem he was born in Germany but lives in Romania because he has a family there.

He said Romania is not a good country to live in… (read on in Trip)

Ex-Hitchhiker

The moment we got dropped off at the gas station near Frankfurt an older man approached us and asked us: "Where are you going?" on what I replied: "Basel, Switzerland". He nodded and started discussing the details and the route with us.

He drove us thirty kilometers to the next gas station where he bought us two small portions of food because we asked him if the food here… (read on in Trip)

Mostar → Sarajevo 126km Hitchhiked by Dibdoo 1 1
Two people Mostar Sarajevo Bosnia fastest

Emin - Bosnian Schumacher

From Mostar we hitchhiked a guy named Emin. He was very rich, he told us how he got rich and whats his job, also something about the last war. He drove the newest Mercedes, but he drove like crazy and very fast. But to some degree safe. As soon as it started to rain he was very careful and slowed down.

It was amazing experience to "fly" in a car with over 230km/h on the speed meter.

Herceg Novi → Budva 66km Hitchhiked by Dibdoo 1 1
Two people Herceg Novi Kotor Budva Montenegro

Awesome Russian family!

Just before lunch we went to hitchhike on the road in Herceg Novi (many good spots, you can even hitchhike directly on bus station). After a while we stopped a car with friendly Russian family going on a very long vacation in Montenegro. So they took us, they even stopped FOR US to take pictures of beautiful country at the motorests. Then, what we didnt even consider, they… (read on in Trip)

Dubrovník → Herceg Novi 51km Hitchhiked by Dibdoo 1 1
Two people Dubrovnik Herceg Novi Croatia Montenegro taxi

Dubrovnik - worst place to hitchhike to Montenegro so far

There were many good spots to hitchhike from Dubrovnik but many local residents are occupying the roadstops with their cars servings as a parking spot. They even build stairs directly connecting to the road! With that it is even hard to just walk pass it and not get run over by a car or a truck.

Eventually we said "fuck it" and went to take a bus. But that one was full,… (read on in Trip)

Dutch guys going to a national park

Took us from Zadar after some waiting at a gas station to a place near Šibenik to another gas station which was on our way to Split. Very friendly and natural people.

German-speaking mixture of guys gave us a ride

From that gas station we waited for a couple minutes, had coffee, it was alreay very dark so we needed either a ride FAST or we will sleep somewhere over a fence in that gas station :D. One car with three guys was there also and we were looking at each other for soem time, so they knew about us, it wasnt completelly random to ask them if they need help and if they can take us… (read on in Trip)

Kolan → Zadar 66km Hitchhiked by Dibdoo 2 1
Two people Pag Zadar Croatia

One taxi driver and one young couple

We woke up on Pag island, stranded in a camp. The island is almost dead so it was hard to hitchhiking on the road where not many cars were passing. Went to Kolan and there got a ride from off-duty taxi driver which drove like crazy (but safe to some degree). We wanted at first to go to Pag (city), but when we told that we want to go to Zadar he said it is also on his way and… (read on in Trip)

Two people Rijeka Crikvenica Croatia

Long wait worth it

We were trying to hitch a ride from Rijeka, but mostly there were bad spots (or we didnt see any good), only after some time we met another german hitchhiker and he was on a good spot. So after he left we waited for some tiem there and a young woman stopped to us and wanted at first to take us only to nearest village but then realised we would be screwed from there so went all… (read on in Trip)

Two people Rijeka Zagreb Croatia

Zagreb full of bad spots, but Miran knows his way

We went from center to the west, connected to the main road which goes to the highway continuing to Ljubljana. We realised thats quite bad way because many cars were mostly going to Ljubljana and not to Rijeka where we wanted to continue, but we still tryed. After some hours later we finally stopped a car and the driver was nice enough just to take us to a much better spot,… (read on in Trip)

Milko the Physicist

Hitchhiking from Ljubljana is quite good, there are good connections to the highway but not many good spots. We went to such one place, we met another hitchhikers. They were at the place for abotu an hour without luck. So we asked them if it is ok to go a little before them because i think that was a better spot for a car stopping on the road (they were hitchhiking just before… (read on in Trip)

Two swiss guys returning a car

We were hitchhiking for about 2 hours and then a first car with Slovenian licence plates stopped us. We were really lucky because the guys told us they were going the other direction about an hour before to have some lunch and saw us on the road trying to catch a ride, and we wanted to change the road after one hour, but we stayed vigilantelly. So they saw us again after… (read on in Trip)
