10 Thoughts on Malaysia!
The Petronas Towers in Malaysia
The first traditional dish I had in Malaysia
The view from inside the Petronas Towers
The Petronas Towers mainly deal with the oil and gas business!
This Malaysian beer was so light and so yummy it went great with the food from the food stalls
A traditional dish called dim sum!
Local fruit from a Malaysian farm that absolutely smells disgusting but tastes pretty good!
One of the many delish food stalls on the street.
Fried Frogs !!
Real Coconut water!
The Batu Caves are a great geological gem!
One of my favorite caves to hike through!
Their were many shrines and temples within the Caves.
This golden statue was absolutely gigantic and this picture doesn’t do it justice!
The stairs were absolutely killer to climb though!
1.) Malaysian hospitality was great! I had so much fun hanging out with the locals and seeing the non touristy part of Malaysia!
2.) It was so HUMID!! I thought my hair would never recover from the frizz.
3.) If you don’t like spicy food nor seafood then you might not survive in Malaysia. Most of their traditional and unique local foods mainly consist of one or the other and sometimes both components!
4.) I had an amazing time hiking and spelunking through the Batu Caves! It was honestly my favorite thing to do in Malaysia! The caves were a tad bit hot but overall I would highly recommend doing that if you’re ever in the area! Also, there were baby monkeys!!
5.) I didn’t have time to visit a shrine while there and that is probably the one thing I regret from that trip!
6.) The time change definitely caught up with me here and I was dead for most of the nights haha
7.) There was a really nice bar on the top floor of our hotel and it even had a pool! We would go up there and have a drink and watch the Petronas Towers light up while we relaxed from a long day!
8.) While my dad was conducting business throughout the days I was mainly either by myself or with a local who showed me around!
9.) Next time I travel like this I definitely want to try staying at an Airbnb! 🙂
10.) Finally, I would just suggest at looking outside of your comfort zone to find fun things to do! You might even surprise yourself! I know I did when I decided Malaysia was one of my favorite places to visit while traveling this summer! 🙂
