My Malaysia Diary – exploring the other Asia

We start planning for our summer vacations trip, in January every year and when we decided for Malaysia early this time. I really could not hold on to the butterflies in my tummy. This was the day trip which included our travel to Kuala Lumpur, Penang Georgetown and Langkawi Island.

In Kuala lumpur we stayed in China Town zone which showed us the night life. Our hotel was well placed and well connected by Hop-on-hop-off bus service. We took a city tour through that HOHO bus service and went to see couple of beautiful places within Kuala lumpur like the palace, history museum, twin towers and Bukit Bintang.

The street food in Malaysia is wow and there’s plenty of variety to choose from. Interestingly, the place has no dust, thus the street food also doesn’t leave you feeling like you have had roadside food. People are primarily non-vegetarians and therefore, you have a wide range of red and white meat both.

The famous Twin towers of Malaysia are simply mind blowing. The evening and night life at Bukit Bintang was splendid and amazing. For Penang Georgetown, we took a city trip on hired 2wheelers which we rode around the city to visit the nice and calm beach at Batu Firangi. Post that we visited Fort Cornwallis and the biggest 3d museum. The museum is built with 60 plus pictures in which you can be merged as a part of the picture and the experience was breathtaking.

Our trip to Langkawi was by Ferry from Penang George town and it took us 3 hrs to reach Langkawi Island. We checked into a nice property at Pantai Cenang Beach. Relaxed ourselves in the evening at the beach and next day we planned a city tour on 2wheeler where we covered 7wells which is placed at a height of 91mtrs and we climbed with our passion and was dead by the time we reached the top but the view from there was serene beauty and nice small wells to take dip and relax in the water.

Luckily, we carried our costumes. Then we continued our trip to the langkawi cable car which takes us to 708mtrs height above sea level to see the complete Langkawi island view. We saw the clouds passing by and the forest from above. The height at which we were, gave us the benefit of feeling the bird’s eye view, to see the island from above.

The bridge which has patches of glass to see the forest down below. It was all so beautiful and scary at the same time to feel that you are standing right on the top of the forest and may fall. But we managed somehow to click pictures through those glass floors to get the view of the forest.

During our way back, we could also explore the amazing bird sanctuary where we saw variety of birds kept in the natural habitat and we were even allowed to feed some of them. Playing with rabbits was also a beautiful experience.

The next day we boarded our flight and came back to India. It was a trip which we never wanted to have come to an end.
