Malacca is a historical place and it holds a great importance to it. Here you will find mostly museum and churches related to origin of Malaysia ,their culture and people. Also this city was important in terms for trading at that time.. You can enjoy the boat ride here to get a full view of the city. Night city looks more beautiful and charming. Please also try the tricycle ride in the city. Its a 1 day trip from KL takes approx 2 hours by Cab.Cab charged us 480 RM for a return trip ( We bargained from RM 600 to 480 ). There are buses which starts from KL central also they charge your around 100 RM ONE WAY. Also since Malaysia is in the tropical zone in summers it gets very hot there so don't forget to pack your hats and Umbrellas.

Half a day tour to Putrajaya: Putrajaya is an amazing new city just 25 KM away from the KL city. I was totally mesmerized by this beautiful and well-planned city. We had a great time taking snaps, enjoying the parks and botanical gardens.

We decided to make a spontaneous stop at Taiping between Tanah Rata and Penang. We took a bus to Ipoh and then to Taiping, a colonial city in northwestern Malaysia. While the people here were charming, there was not a great deal to do. There is a very nice lake garden, which is worth seeing. However, Taiping is not the reason we came here. We came here in search of Orangutans on the mysterious Palau Orang Utan. The island itself is quite a remarkable conservation effort of these magnificent creatures. They have minimal human interaction and roam free in their 5 acre designated area. As a visitor, you are in the cage to see them, separated by two fences in order not to disturb them. There is a nursery where young infants are looked after if there are complications at birth. Forced breeding is not encouraged and Orangutans have a very slow reproduction cycle, hence why every effort is made to safe newborns. If you have a soft spot for these animals or are unsure, this is a great place to visit.
