– Malaysia Trip End-

Malaysia – Day 01

I arrived from Suvarnabhumi Airport , Thailand to Kuala Lumpur International Airport at about 1215H. The line in immigration was a bit long but as soon as I gave my passport and immigration card, I was asked to press my fingers on the scanner. After that, I was out to get my baggage and soon enough, I found the driver that took me to the hotel I was booked – My Hotel in Bukit Bintang.

Yes, the name of the hotel is “My Hotel.” The hotel wasn’t that big and the room wasn’t as big as the one I had in Thailand, but it was more than enough for a solo traveler like me. The hotel was also in the center of the city so it was convenient to walk around and see the city landscapes.

As soon as I checked in, I walked outside to explore the city and asked around on the best places to go to as well as where the best local restaurants are. Compared to Thailand, they do have rice but most of the stores sell what they call curry rice. It’s like fried rice but a bit spicy because of the curry. Malaysia is a muslim country so I was first hesitant on what to do and the places to go to. Fortunately, just beside the hotel was a travel agency who provides tours. I chat up the owner and eventually set up some tours for me to go to on my free time.

The first one I visited that afternoon was in Bukit Malawati, Kuala Selangor for the monkey sight seeing

Next, I was brought to Firefly Park Resort, Bukit Belimbing, Kuala Selangor to watch exotic birds and their main attraction – Fireflies. We arrived just in time after the sun has set. We rode the boat where we saw the amazing view of fireflies lighting up the trees like christmas tree. The boatman even got us closer and caught us some fireflies in a bottle.

When we got back from the shore at Bukit Belimbing, Kuala Selangor, the restaurants beside it serves fresh seafood and I was amazed how low the cost was for our sumptuos dinner – just about 20 ringgit (myr) or about P 235.00 pesos.

Malaysia – Day 02

The next morning was my scheduled City Tour. Our first stop is one of Malaysia’s main attraction – Petrona’s Twin Towers. They are the tallest buildings from 1998 to 2004 and remain the tallest twin towers in the world.

Our next stop was Malaysia’s National Museum.

After that, we went to Malaysia’s King’s Palace.

Next, we visited Malaysia’s National Monument.

And then we visited the Independence Square of Malaysia.

After the tour, we were brought to some of the local shops such as:

1) Beryl’s Chocolate Kingdom – Coffee and Chocolate Shop.

2) Jadi Batek Gallery – Handmade Malaysian Silk Shop.

And lastly, together with some other tourists, I went down at Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – The Chinatown of Malaysia where we had our lunch.

In the afternoon, I started to make my way up to First World Hotel which is located at Resorts World Genting. It’s the biggest hotel in the world located at an elevation of 1,740 metres (5,710 ft). From Genting Skyway station, I took the cable car going up. On the way, I also dropped by Awana Hotel and Resort as it is located as well in Genting Highlands.

The Cable Car ride:

First World Hotel is indeed huge. It is said that it can accomodate 7,351 rooms. aside from housing shopping malls, arcades, dining outlets, casinos, and the Genting Indoor Theme Park.

I also managed to go inside the Snow World. The biggest winter wonderland in Malaysia said to be 22.8k sq ft.

As well drop by  and play in one of the largest casino that just opened last April – Sky Casino. It is said to be able to accomodate two Boeing 747 aircraft.

Malaysia – Day 03

The following day, I went to tour Melaka (Malacca) – Historical City of Malaysia. One of UNESCO’s World Heritage Site.

We also dropped by Harmony street which houses three different temples beside each other – Buddhism, Taoism, Confussionism.

We also went up to St. Paul’s Church of Melacca. It’s 151 steps up from Chinatown, 96 steps down the European town.

Our ride also showed us the famous Melacca Straits while we were on our way to Malaysia’s Historic King’s Well.

Then we dropped by Malaysia’s 307 yrs old St. Peter’s Church.

George Town, Malaysia was one of the supposed scheduled trip but unfortunately there was an issue with the travel agency so we had to cancel the trip.

The following day, I checked out from the hotel was picked up at about 0900H and brought to Aeroline Hospitality Lounge where the bus was going to take us to Singapore.
