Just a few weeks ago, I went on my first out of country vacation in Malaysia! Before the scheduled date.. I was already feeling giddy and excited! Actually the whole trip was booked and planned just for a month, everything was very spontaenous.
Why Malaysia? First of, my bestfriend is currently working there and has been telling to go there for the longest time and second would be because my travel buddy Karen found a seat sale flight going to Malaysia and her cousin lives there.
The itinerary (made by Karen! what would i do without her?) was intended for our very short duration only. Initial day was a visit to Malacca, I’ve seen a lot of my friends go or had gone to Malaysia, and im seeing the same pictures (not that im complaining) but yeah, everyone wants to see the Well renowned Petronas Tower, Batu Caves and Genting (which we did not go to,hopefully nxt time) but Malacca is something of a fresh air because not everyone has had the chance to go there. For those who’s not aware, Malacca is a Unesco world heritage site. A state rich with Historical background and alive culture.
Here’s a few photos that we had from our short trip to Malacca/Melaka.
Everyone’s favorite photo spot!
Who would’ve thought that somewhere in this place, there is a Huge Wall Art.
This is inside the Museum btw.
The famous JONKER WALK. A very long street to walk. The colorful Transportation in Malacca
Bicycles for rent! Karen wants to try but I am wearing a skirt so I insisted not.
These photos are mostly from the Main City itself, as you can see the structures are all the same. Since this is a personal blog and not a travel blog, i wont be detailing on how we got to Malacca (just so you know, my geographical senses is below average!hehe so I’d rather not). However, the travel time from KL to Malacca is approximately 2 hours by Bus. Our whole trip was a very quick and tiring one. If you would really want to explore the whole City, I’d recommend you have to stay there for atleast 2 days and one night to fully visit every Landmark. What I loved about this place is that they offer the best spices I’ve ever tasted. You see, I used to eat a lot of spicy foods, but then when I started having Acid Reflux and gastro issues, I begun to minimize my intake. However, going to this place (actually not only Malacca but Malaysia itself) did not stop me from trying all their spicy foods and sauces. Also, the people are very accommodating and kind. Another one for the books!
Will be sharing my KL tour next post!
