Leaving Kuala Lumpur, we headed up into the mountains to the Genting Highlands Resort. This resort is home to casinos, hotels, golf courses and two theme parks. It also houses the largest hotel in the world and we stayed there!
On our last full day in Kuala Lumpur, we suffered through the Malaysian capital's public transportation system on our way to a couple of different theme parks. In the end it was a great day filled with roller coasters and water slides!
On my 26th Birthday we decided to visit the Batu Caves on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur. These holy Hindu caves are notorious for their thieving monkeys and we got to see them incredibly close!
The Petronas Towers are iconic. Upon seeing them when pulling into Kuala Lumpur, I couldn't wait to get a closer look. On Sunday, we spent the whole day at or near the towers. We rode up to the skybridge, killed time in the mall and most importantly took our pictures in front of these two icons!
Kuala Lumpur is a large dirty city. For some people that would probably be a turn off, but for us it means excitement. We were all very excited to get into the city and to see how it contrasted to the Utopian like Singapore!
After having only been in Singapore for a few days, we were ready to leave the nation state behind for a little more adventure up north in Malaysia. Our first stop was the ancient port city of Melaka where we would see some European influences and enjoy delicious food!
Day 326 - Tuesday March 11, 2008 Singapore We ultimately didn’t do much on Tuesday, but that was okay since it was our seventh wedding anniversary....
Not letting the rain get us down, we visited the historic area of Singapore along the river. This area is where the city was founded and is home to many of the area's most interesting sites!
