My Escapes Malaysia My First Malaysian Escape

My First Malaysian Escape

May 30, 2014
April 29, 2015

"Malaysia Truly Asia", the official tourism slogan illustrates pretty well what's special about Malaysia - it's a little piece of Asia!
Exotically multicultural, a land of contrast and colours...
It's so amazing, everything overflows!
What I saw, tasted or otherwise experienced is packed into this walkaround guide...

I had a mere 5 nights, but only 4 full days, so I pinned Kuala Lumpur, the new planned capital of Putrajaya and the Batu Caves Hindu shrine.

Unfortunately, I had to leave Malacca out, but it was on my list in the beginning...
I was also considering these destinations: Genting Highlands, the Cameron Highlands the islands of Langkawi and Penang, Johor Bahru and Kuala Terengganu. They just didn't fit in, but next time I'll do my best to visit some of them.

I adored my stay in Malaysia. This was one of my best trips ever, squeezed between two escapes to Singapore.

Here you can read about my experiences in Malaysia...
Keep in mind that the main sections contain multiple articles within them.

Contrastful Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur view

Striking contrast and exciting historic quarters. I explored thoroughly and contemplated the different faces and nuances that "KL" has.

There's no better place in the entire Malaysia for getting a taste of the different cultures and religions that live side-by-side peacefully.

Visiting the Batu Caves Hindu Shrine

Batu Caves Hindu shrine

The biggest Hindu shrine outside of India, one with a staggering tall golden statue of Lord Murugan.

Amid "rioting" macaques, my friend and I climbed 272 steps to enter the main cave...


Short Visit to Putrajaya, the Planned Capital

Seri Wawasan Bridge

Putrajaya is the planned new modern capital of Malaysia.
It will eventually become the capital, but for a while it's mostly a barren place with few souls wandering around.

It seemed like this artificailly-created city had pre-designed views, landscapes with strategically-placed viewpoints.


Malaysia Vehicle Spotting

Vehicles in Malaysia

Again, my trip gave me the opportunity to catch a glimpse of a few interesting vehicles.

A collection of photos depicting various vehicles that I spotted. Most of them ordinary, some of them quite unusual.
