Travel Diary: A Memorable Weekend at Malaysia

After spending a month in Singapore, my family and I reached Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. My family members were impressed with the city a first glance, “so much character”, my father said.

We have relatives in Malaysia but we chose to stay at a hotel because that way you have more freedom to travel anywhere you like. We were in Malasia only for 2 days but we had a lot to see.

The first evening we were really excited to ditch room service and wander the streets to try local delicacies.


Satay was a family favourite.

We then decided to go on a night city tour and first we saw the Petronas Towers.


This picture won’t do justice to how magnificent these towers look.


We came back to our hotel and woke up really early in the morning for our breakfast. We had a long day ahead of us. We wanted to see the Batu Caves.


Batu Caves are made of limestone, there are a series of caves and cave temples in Gombak, Selangor, Malaysia. The name is taken from Sungai Batu, which flows past the hill. It is the tenth limestone hill from Ampang.

Lunch was amazing.

The fish crackers are to die for and the people are just so kind and helpful. Our taxi driver stayed overtime just to show us around and didn’t even ask for extra money. This city is really warm and welcomes you with open arms!

We woke up to the most beautiful sunset ever, the next morning.


The tea estates in Malaysia are beautiful. You must make more time to visit them.


I wish I could stay in Malaysia the whole week and explore more! Oh, and did I tell you the tea they served us at the hotel was mind blowing?


We then took a 3 hour bus ride with the whole family to spend some time at Cameron Highlands. The hotel in Cameron Highlands was especially brilliant. Our trip was wonderful and I really wish I can come back really soon!
