    The 2nd Penang Bridge opened for vehicles since 1 March 2014 started to collect toll from 1 April 2014. For a sedan car, the toll is RM8.50, a rate RM 1.50 higher than the 1st bridge.

  • Heritage

    Penang Favorites

    While I was roaming around the city, I found these antique Vases on the altar in one of the oldest associations in Penang. It is the Carpenter's Temple called "LOO PUN HONG" built in 1856 situated at LOVE LANE..... From picture 2 to 5, you can see how our local developers and government handle old historical buildings in new developments. We ask,...

  • Internet Access

    Kuala Lumpur Favorites

    why go on Internet Roaming when you travel when the price of internet roaming is more atrocious than calling on your smarphone when most of the establishments in Kuala Lumpur and Klan Valleyi, including at KLIA and KLIA 2 (free wifi is for 3 hours, no need to get a password), various hotels, restaurants, bars, coffee houses and seafood restaurants...

  • Penang Hill

    Penang Favorites

    You will find that everyone is rushing to get a seat. Whether you are sitting or standing throughout the 30 minutes ride, it is will crowded and you will be in close proximity although not touching each other. So what is outside is great distraction. At the first part of the journey, you may see monkeys on roof tops or telegraph cables. There is...

    Penang Favorites

    I wish to share my little knowledge of Penang to all those who are interested. One can only find this little cemetery especially for the Jewish and the name of the street (Jahudi Road) is the Malay word for Jews but now had been changed to Jalan Zainal Abidin. Just inside the town at the junction of Burma Road. Although Malaysia has no diplomatic...

  • Street Vendors

    Kuala Lumpur Favorites

    Every day while driving out in the morning we'd pass this guy on the street making Roti. At first I thought he was making tortillas. Then told that it was roti. It looks and tastes similar to tortillas but the size was much bigger. Also, my friends seem to use the word roti, for most types of bread. If you pass by this type of shop, stop and watch...

    Kuala Lumpur Favorites

    Honestly, it was my first time in Merdaka Square and I saw alot of picture ops so, I hurry rush out from the car! The tour we hired only had 4 of us. Me and hubby and another couple that were maybe in getting- to- know each- other stage. So, you can see that they don't like to get out at the car and we're back seat so hated every moment when we got...

    Kuala Lumpur Favorites

    The railway station has magnificent Moorish architecture. Bathed in white with gorgeous minarets it was completed in 1917 and is worthy of a visit and a few clicks of your digital camera. Note: this is not the main station and only deals with services to the peninsular and Singapore.

Pasar Seni is a huge place with an interesting variety of ethnic stalls offering the various items associated with the cultures of the population of Malaysia.

  • Sultan Abdul Samad Building

    Kuala Lumpur Favorites

    The raining in the afternoon [daily] is still acceptable as you have a chance to plan and schedule your activities. The last few days appeared OK, gloomy at times in the morning, then scattered rain, small ones. But today, it was bad gloomy the whole morning and afternoon light showers for long hours.

  • National Mosque

    Kuala Lumpur Favorites

    Both myself and my friend Claudia were inappropriately dressed for a visit to the National Mosque. The people at the mosque very kindly leant us some robes, including a headscarf for Claudia. We resembled a couple from biblical times, I thought! I adopted an appropriately sombre expression for the photo.

  • Bird Park

    Kuala Lumpur Favorites

    Bird Park - It is a very nicely situated and rather big park which tries to copy the natural environments of the birds, which are flying around under a huge net. Main attraction is the hornbill (as you can see one on the photo). Here you can watch that bird closely and also make a good shot, because in the wild nature you usually see it from the...

  • Hill Stations in Peninsular Malaysia

    Cameron Highlands:-If travelling from KL, you can take a bus to Tanah Rata (the main town of CH). I'm sure there are local buses from Tapah, too! You can take the ETS to Tapah and then a bus from there to CH! Frasers' Hill:-But if you want a quieter, less developed hill station, check out Fraser's Hill (no tea plantations here though!), which has a...

  • It's Not a Gas Leak! Honest!

    When you think you smell gas, feel concerned and tell someone, you must believe them when they say it's only a truck load of DURIAN parked near or passing by. This favorite fruit of my friends is something I had never smelled or even heard of before. It was summer, so I'm guessing that a few days after my arrival was harvest time because that is...

  • Escaping the Heat and Humidity!

    My favorite thing about Malaysia, besides the people, was a weekend I spent in the mountians. One of the best ways to cool off is to take a trip up the mountain! The country is lush, the air is refreshing and it is peaceful! One of my fondest memories, after feeling the coolness of the air, would be aquiring a few 'pet' birds at the Genting...

    Will edit later to make it more general. 1. The transit hotels are outside the terminal buildings. You will arrive at KUL (KLIA)'s Satellite Terminal from YVR and will take the train to the main terminal for immigration and baggage collection/customs check, after which you will exit the Arrivals Hall. The distance you'll walk would be equivalent to...

    It is good that you visit the VT sights as suggested and generally the VISA is given upon entry, but it might also depends on what passport you hold.

On average, you can get a good meal for five dollars. there are a lot of food...

    I also had the Avillon water chalets in mind, depending on what your interests are, but I must attest that the beach there is not the best in Port Dickson, nor does PD have the best beaches in MY (it is more a weekend getaway for KLites!).I was going to recommend Pangkor Laut or the Pangkor Island Resort, depending on your budget - the former would...

  • Rainforests - will edit later!

    1) I think you need to be realistic with a one year old in tow :( FYI although the forest at FRIM is a secondary rainforest, it is STILL a rainforest - the difference between the two is that secondary rainforests, having been logged before, would have more undergrowth from the break in the forest canopy after tree felling sometime ago, while in...
