Penang: A fascinating fusion of the East and West, Penang embraces modernity while retaining its traditions and old world charm. These are reflected in its harmonious multiracial populace and well-preserved heritage buildings which led to George Town being accorded a listing as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site recently. Long regarded as the food capital of Malaysia, Penang also entices visitors with its beautiful coasts and scrumptious cuisines.
Batu Caves: Batu Caves are situated thirteen kilometers (seven miles) north of the capital city Kuala Lumpur. They are the sacred place for the Hindu’s in Malaysia. They consist of three main caves and a number of smaller ones. The caves are made of limestone and 400 meters long and 100 meter high.They were discovered in 1892. At your arrival you will be greeted by lots of monkeys. They are going for your peanuts and banana’s, which you can buy in several shop, before you climb up to the caves. You have to climb 272 steps, which will lead you to the religious and magnificent Batu Caves.
Genting Highland & Theme Park: 45-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur beckons invitingly. So you make the trek, and what do you find? A denuded hilltop with a noisy, crowded, monstrous cluster of constructions where once there was only virgin forest. A place where you can go to gamble, ride on amusement park rides, play games in a video arcade, experience a fake winter with artificial snow, eat on the run, shop at the same outlets available in the city, and generally leave poorer than when you arrived–both in pocketbook and spirit.
