Travel in Malaysia << adventure >>
Having shared Nepal with you, it’s now time to move further east (and indeed south). I flew into Kuala Lumpur at the start of November 2010 and spent almost a month traveling up the eastern coast of Peninsular Malaysia toward the Thai border. The journey introduced me to the tiny fishing island of Pangkor, the cave temples of Ipoh, the tea and strawberries colonialism of the Cameron Highlands (where it rained non-stop), the Nonya heritage of Penang and the laid back loveliness of Langkawi. The food was great (especially in Georgetown), the hospitality impeccable and the weather mostly just to my liking. I rather like Malaysia.
