After Bangkok, I traveled to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and from there went on to a few more places in Malaysia. We took a flight from Bangkok to KL on Air Asia. Air travel around the region there is so cheap. It was very nice. We couchsurfed here and stayed with three girls with Europe (I think Paris). They gave us great hospitality and were so generous and sweet.
They are the tallest and most well-known landmark in KL. You can’t get to the top but you can get to floor 41 with the possession of a FREE ticket, but they are on a first come, first serve basis, so you gotta get there early. At the bottom, there is a prestigious mall.
Fish will literally eat your feet. They are “pedicure” fish that love the dead nasty skin on your feet. It feels so weird, but once you’ve gotten used to it, your feet feel amazing and exfoliated.
The Batu Caves are a series of limestone caves and cliffs with Hindu shrines and statues inside. Don’t be surprised when there are little monkeys in the inside!
We took a 7 hour bus ride and a 1.5 hour ferry ride from KL to get to a small island of paradise. Langkawi is a quaint little island that offers relaxation, nature, swimming in bath water like ocean water and plenty of food! We stayed at Sweet Inns and the rooms were very basic but okay for the extremely inexpensive price. We ended up renting a scooter for the day in order to see the whole island. We stopped at several places along the way as the pictures below will show.
Since I was traveling with Mark and he loves food, we went to Georgetown. He had heard that there was a huge market with exquisite food.
A train takes you 821 meters above sea level and you can see for miles a panoramic of the city and ocean.
