Malaysia is one of the famous Southeast Asian destination for trade and tourism. My first international vacation was to this magnificent country.

Malaysian Visa: Since this was a package tour, our tour agent had got us the stamped Malaysian Visa (1 year, multiple entries) at INR 4100 per person.

Flights: We had opted for Air Asia from Bangalore to Kuala Lumpur and from Kuala Lumpur to Langkawi. There are various other flights like tiger air, Jet airways etc that fly to Kaula Lumpur on an everyday basis.

Day 1

Accommodation: We chose our accommodation near the little India area as we found it convenient to visit the local attractions and also for the availability of the Indian food there.

Places to visit in and around Kaula Lumpur:

Genting Highlands: This is 45 minutes away from the KL city. Genting highlands are an integrated resort with casinos, theme parks, hotels perched on top of Gunung Ulu Kali Mountain. One can reach the resorts by the cable car. Genting cable car is the world’s fastest mono cable car. The view in the cable car is just awesome. We visited the snow world there and had a great time. Also, one can explore around and enjoy various entertainment opportunities the place has to offer.

The Batu caves: These are the limestone caves comprising on 3 major caves and several small caves. This place is around 11 KMs away from the KL city. This is a 100-year-old temple and is considered as the important landmark by the Hindus. One has to climb a series of steps to reach the shrine. It was a really tiring journey but totally worth it.

KL Bird Park: Spread over an area of 20 Acres, this is a must visit place if you are a bird lover. There are over 3000 species of birds here.
