This blog is already about 6 weeks out of date, so this post is just to fill in the blanks of some of the places of interest I’ve been so far in Malaysia. Then I’ll keep it current, with an occasional spot of time travel back to one of these:
First stop: KUALA LUMPUR! The title of the blog! I instantly liked it and there’s so much I could already say about KL. As a reminder to my future self, I should include the Batu Caves, Thean Hou Temple, Chinatown, Sri Mahamariamman Temple, and the fabulous people and food of “Little India” in future posts about KL.
Second stop: George Town, Penang. Colonial town on Penang island which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, full of interesting culture, Chinese clan houses, good food and the occasional mean-looking dog.
Third stop: Langkawi. A tropical island that is everything you would want a tropical island to be, but more fun. My favourite place in Malaysia so far, and it will be hard to beat. An absolute dream.
Fouth stop: Ipoh. Back to the mainland and another colonial city, but lacking the charm of George Town unfortunately.
This brings me up to date, to the Cameron Highlands. Famously “VERY COLD” and popular, but what do I think of it? You’ll not have to wait very long to find out, as I’m going to do a post about it next (and may have already whatsapped you some photos).
In the meantime, here’s a photo that I love from my trip to Thean Hou temple in KL:
