I love traveling and so I’m constantly thinking of places to visit during different seasons. With the Summer approaching, it’s time to think of destinations. I actually visited Malaysia & Singapore years ago for the first time, and I loved them both.
One thing I fell in love, and still remember this after a couple of years was the cuisine – The food was amazing in both cities. Even though they pretty much have everything, we mostly had Asian food around, and they were great. In terms of Fashion, Asian style is perfect for people watching – they are always super quirky, and have a fun sense of style. Countries in Asia also have their own issues of international magazines, so make sure to pick them up. In terms of Key attractions, make sure to check out the Singapore rainforest Zoo while you’re there, which is quite an experience. For Malaysia, if you’re a city girl like me, and want a different surrounding, do stay on one of the Islands around.
What I’d hope to check out:
-Malaysia’s islands & Islamic art museum.
-KL, Malaysia is known for being a shopping haven – huge shopping malls in the heart of the city as well as streets of Bukitt Bintang (which have Pavilion, Farenheit 88, Lot 10 – which carry international brands.) After shopping, it’s also a great choice for people watching and dining.
-Dining in KL – The alfresco in Pavilion hosts various kinds of food from local cuisines such as the famous Nasi Lemak, curry noodles to international cuisines ranging from Western, Japanese, Lebanese, Mediterranean etc.
-It’s not all city life in Malaysia that attracts tourists. Malaysia is also home to many islands – perfect holiday destination. They have famous islands such as Pulau Redang, Pulau Tioman, and for the adventurous ones, they can also go diving in Pulau Perhentian & Pulau Sipadan in East Malaysia.
-For Mother Nature fans, Malaysia is also rich with rainforests especially in the Borneo. Make sure to visit Sabah where the highest mountain in SEA is – Mount Kinabalu. The biggest flower in Malaysia can also be found in Sabah – The Rafflesia.
-Get Cultural… They have different ethnicities all in East Malaysia from the Gawais, Kadazans, Ibanese etc. Make sure to visit the longhouses or come during their festive seasons. If you’re lucky, you can visit the annual Borneo Rainforest Music Festival.
Prominent spots in Malaysia such as Penang and Malacca are rich with culture and food.
-Singapore’s Botanic gardens and China Town.
