DID YOU KNOW?

The Petronas Twin Towers are the tallest twin buildings in the world. At one point they were the tallest building reaching an incredible height of 452m (1,483 ft). There is a sky bridge that connects them together halfway up and you can visit both the bridge and the top of one of the towers daily, I am very scared of heights and yet as the building is completely closed in, it does make it more bearable to go up.😅

TravelFood

Spread over 3 territories (effectively two different islands) the main being north of Singapore where the capital Kuala Lumpur is located. The other one being on the island of Borneo.

There are many areas of natural beauty in Malaysia. From Cameron Highlands to the northwest of KL where the famous Tea plantations are flourishing in a beautiful protected area. All the way to the beauty that is the island of Borneo where coastline gives way to mangroves and forests as well as Mt Kinabalu which at 4095 m is the highest mountain in Malaysia.

So I am looking to move up into Malaysia from SG early October, spending about 10 days visiting a few chosen places before entering Thailand and then follow the route across the south into Cambodia.

I will be returning to Malaysia later on my trip as there are many things to visit and is a former British colony I can stay for 3 months on my visa on arrival.

Culture

Islam, Hindu Malay, and the Chinese give this huge country a multi-cultural and multi-ethnical essence.

Food

Some of the most amazing and diverse foods in SEA in my opinion as you have blends of Malay, Chinese and Indonesian and Thai influences mean you can eat a different type of food every day.

Islands in the Stream

Langkawi and Penang both offer contrasting views of Malaysia with the latter being a more colonial style with Georgetown still reminiscent of the British rule, whilst, the former is now a home for some of the finest yachts in the world.
