Malaysia has its origins in the Malay kingdom which became a subject of British Empire from the 18th century. Although Malaysia occupies just a small portion of the globe, it has had one of the best economic records in Asia since its independence. The industrialized market economy has recently developed and is the 3rd largest in Southeast Asia. Such a place with such an interesting history and an even more interesting record needs to be visited. It has an area of 329 847 sq km.
The entry to Malaysia:
I took a ferry ride on the first day of my visit and I had booked them already beforehand at easybook. The ferry provided me with great service and I was quite impressed with their services and their rates of course. The journey from Singapore Ferry Terminal to Johor did not take much time, and the ride was easy and very comfortable.
In Kuala Lumpur:
After this, and after much planning and plotting, I finally landed in Malaysia from Johor on one evening from there. The glittering lights of Kuala Lumpur seemed to welcome me and I felt happy that I had finally reached there.
The first visit was to the Petronas Twin Towers; a breath-taking view and a wonderful product of human efforts awaited me there. Next we moved on to the Pinang Peranakan Museum which was also a wonderful place and I wrote down all the necessary information about the place that I could collect from there. Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Mosque was up next. It was a gigantic Mosque with a very fine architecture reflecting the skilled expertise of the hands that built it. It was a wonderfully spent day altogether!
On the next I myself took a stroll around the place early in the morning. The air, the ambience was so amazingly good that I felt as if I was being carried away by it. Then I quickly got ready for my ferry ride through some more tourist spots. The first place was the Rainbow Waterfall What a mind blowing view was it. I must Say I saw Nature at its best! The next place that I visited was Putrajaya Mosque. This was once again a wonderful place, serene, calm and magnificent!
It was now time to get back home. But those two days were spent in bliss, away from the regular stress and tensions, a break from the dull, monotonous and boring schedule. Malaysia struck wonders with its beauty, a fine blending of the natural and artificial. Thus where there were some incredible sights of natural beauty, there were simultaneously the monuments, which were the fruits of human endeavours. All in all, I quite enjoyed the ferry rides and the subsequent tour of Malaysia.
