Malaysia Travel Destination


Posted by AllenMiller1 on September 20, 2010

Malaysia have those multicultural that you can’t find in any others country. The best time to visit Malaysia is the beginning of December to the end of January. The second peak season falls in the months of June, July, and August.

Nothing is really so important when you are on holiday but I recommend these places for your family as first-timers:

1) Kuala Lumpur
- Twin Towers & the Aquaria
- National Zoo & the Museum of Indigenous People (Orang Asli Museum)
- Bukit Bintang for shopping and Arabic food, Starhill Gallery for fine dining.
- Sunway Lagoon theme park for your kids, Sunway Pyramid mall for shopping - there's an Arabic restaurant here called Tarbush which gives a beautiful view of the place in the evening
- Putrajaya. Charter a taxi for a half-day tour to see new architecture, the mosque, take a boat ride or water-ski
- Central market & Petaling Street for cheap souvenir shopping

2) Melaka
- Historical town. Hire a trishaw and aks him to take you through the old Portuguese remains, the Baby & Nyonya House and Kampung Sentosa
- On the way back, stop at Ayer Keroh for the Crocodile Farm and/or Mini Malaysia

3) Cameron Highlands
- Agricultural highland, tea plantation

4) Langkawi
- stay in a nice beach resort, those at Tanjung Rhu are the quietest
- cable car ride up to the mountains
- cultural tour of the island - Makam Mahsuri etc. You can have the hotel arrange it for you.

5) Penang
- stay in a nice beach resort at Batu Ferringhi
- Visit the Burmese temple, the Indian temple, the Kek Lok Si temple
- cable car ride up to the mountains

6) Pulau Redang / Pulau Tioman for snorkelling for nice beach

Malaysia is, at just a short hop away, a great escape from the crowds and the jams in Singapore. With regular weekend trips to the Malaysian East Coast especially, you'll never have to have a longing for wide open spaces, pace and quiet or a weekend of lazy R&R.

Locations like Desaru, Tanjung Resang, Air Papan, Penyabong, are all just a few hours away. But when you're there, it feels like you've stepped back in time, it's so rustic, so authentic. The silence is deafening, apart from the sea lapping up on the beach and the breeze rustling in the trees.

Best of all, it's kid-friendly too, very gradually sloping beaches and no odd currents or tide rips going on.

And the makan there is the icing on the cake :)
