    I think the fact that Malaysia is just a boat ride away from Singapore is a treat in itself as well. This allows you to visit two very alternate worlds in one single trip. As in most destinations, it is always a treat to be able to get out of the city life and explore the coastal areas of a place as this is where you tend to find the most serene and pristine of places.

    I was born in West Malaysia, specifically the island of Penang. It's an interesting blend of cultures, religions, cuisines with a rich history.

    As a boy, I used to spend my time hiking in the hills, swimming in the sea and shopping in Chinatown, all without leaving my little island!

    We visited Malaysia a month ago, I was there first week of March until first week of May and stayed at Vista Perdana in Pulau Penang. I loved the scenery in front of the compound since we're facing the sea to George Town. I loved my stay there, I've been there to the places you've mentioned in this thread. Genting Highlands should also be added as a must visit place in Malaysia while in Kuala Lumpur. We often travel by car from Penang to Ipoh or to KL since the gas price there is very cheap. That night Safari is worth checking out too.. ^^

    I totally agree! Malaysia has got so many things to offer. I really miss Malaysia, now that I'm living in Europe. Genting Highlands would definitely be an interesting place to go. Granted, it's not a very traditional place - casino, theme park and all, but I feel that it would be worthwhile to bring the family there.

    I grew up in Singapore so Malaysia was always a convenient weekend getaway. My parents even sent me on an OBS( Outward Bound School) course to Lumut where I thoroughly enjoyed myself learning to canoe, build campfires and tents, learn to read maps amongst many other skills I picked up. Malaysia truly had the best of the modern city life in KL and also the idyllic village life. Our parents often took us to Penang and Malacca and the food was always so delicious. We would buy lots of snacks( I remember the snacks being 10 ringgit for three snacks) at the night market and my mother loved the painted bamboo fans. Malaysia is definitely a place I would love to keep coming back to.

    Absolutely! I think in terms of both modern urban and traditional living, Malaysia has a really good balance! And the food is amazing, especially if you go to Penang in the north. Do take some time to trek in the jungles in places like Taman Negara (the national park) if you are into nature as the rainforests are huge and very, very ancient in this part of the world. It's a nice contrast to have a bit of everything and really that's what Malaysia is.

    I always have a problem going to the Casino, they always check my passport to confirm I'm no minor. I'm already 26 but the guards there think I'm 16 or something. -.- They offer tons of varieties in food and sights. We stayed in First World hotel so we were very near the theme park and casino. The drive to the very peak (since FW is on the very top of the location) was exhausting especially the curve here and there. Language barrier can sometimes be a problem in Malaysia though. Especially if you can't speak Bahasa or Chinese. -.- At least 2 of us can speak, Bahasa, Tamil and Chinese so ordering and communication was ok.

    I used to get stopped by the Casino staff all the time until I was way past 30! Take it as a compliment!

    Yes, the level of English being spoken nowadays in Malaysia has declined so much over the years! Either way, Malaysia is still a great (and fairly cheap) place to visit. The public transport could use a much-needed revamp and the public toilets are atrocious, but overall, it's still one of the more pleasant places to visit in southeast Asia.

    The last time I was In Genting Island, I was a few days away from the legal age and couldn't even enter the casino. But I had a fun time going on the gondola, singing karaoke in the small booths and the roller coasters too while our parents were busy having fun, gambling. It seems the level of English has gone down not just in Malaysia but elsewhere too. I think it's because people are too used to speaking English sprinkled with words from their mother tongue and dialects so you get really colourful English that could be confusing to tourists.

    Re: Things To Do In Malaysia

    It sounds really fun, I would love to visit Malaysia, I`ve never been into traveling that much, but this is definitely the place I want to visit. Im from Europe, it`s pretty far, it would take a lot of money to get there, to live and to get back home, but I think it`s worth it, I mean, look at this place, it`s gorgeous! I love cities, and I think it would be great to just be there and walk trought these streets.

    Re: Things To Do In Malaysia

    Well, if you book really early, prices for flights should be fairly reasonable. My friend from France booked her flight from Paris to Amsterdam and then Amsterdam to Singapore four months in advance with KLM and the total (for a two-way ticket) came up to slightly above 600 Euros. I thought it was a very,very, good price.
    Malaysia is definitely a great place to visit.

    Hyrrin!After reading your post I come to know that you have a great information about Malaysia. I visited the National Museum that was nice. I really liked the it work of art. I hope so if you have visited this museum then you also liked it. By the way one question in my mind have you personally visited all these places which you have mentioned in your post?

    That would be a pretty fun trip if everything goes in one direction and in the same scenario it can all be moving ahead for the best tour to niagara falls from new jersey has all the terms of appeal and the kind of reasonable way it does has which is truly decent with exploring things and making a mark.
