I visited Malaysia with my family and friends during October 2016. It was a memorable travelling experience for me.

We flew from Mumbai to Kuala Lumpur on 21st October 2016. Our journey in Malindo Airlines was very comfortable.

After having breakfast at Putra Palace Restaurant, we proceeded for the Kuala Lumpur city tour. This tour around Malaysia’s bustling capital was a treasure. We visited magnificent architectural splendours like the National Mosque, King’s Palace, Merdeka Square, National Monument, Railway Station and Cocoa Boutique. We also visited the breath-taking Petronas Twin Towers and KL Tower. It was an amazing experience to explore these superb towers.

We stayed at the stunning Sunway Putra Hotel.
After having breakfast in the hotel, we proceeded for Sunway Lagoon Water Theme Park. It was so amazing that we spent the whole day there. There were many rides and activities to enjoy. We also enjoyed the walk on the world’s Longest Suspended Pedestrian Bridge.

The evening was all the more relaxing with the Gala Night Party at the Hotel. It was a pleasant surprise to watch the local Malaysian dancers perform some of their traditional dances. Watching them perform on Indian songs was the icing on our cake.
We visited the Batu Caves and explored the local markets for shopping. Post lunch we went to the KUL Airport for our onward journey to Langkawi.

Our one hour flight to Langkawi was a quick one, and was a beautiful ride over the Andaman Sea. We checked in at Berjaya Langkawi Resort. The resort was so big that one has to take a Buggy for internal transfers. Langkawi is an island with natural scenic beauty. I felt lucky to have visited such a beautiful place.

In the morning we proceeded for the Cable Car Tour and the Sky Bridge. On the way to the cable car there were many other attractions like Space Journey and 4D Dinosaur movie. The experience of the cable car was unimaginable. The cable car ride took us all the way up to 708 metres above the sea level. The entire ride in the cable car, the breathtaking view of the Andaman Sea and the forest around, and the walk on the Sky Bridge were certainly moments to be treasured for life.

We visited the major attraction of Langkawi, the Eagle Square. It is one of Langkawi’s best known manmade attractions, a large sculpture of an eagle poised to take flight. We did lots of shopping in Langkawi Fine Mall. We bought lots of chocolates and other souvenirs.
In the night we proceeded for our return journey to Mumbai.

This was truly the most memorable travel experience I’ve had so far. A Big Thank You to my parents.
