Malaysia – Truly Asia Ishtyle..!

I am leaving on a jet plane...” – the title line of the famous country song by John Denver always gets stuck in my mind, for all those hours until I catch some sleep and dream about the dream destination of my life - Malaysia, the moment I hear or see anything that makes me reminded of the land of awesomeness.

As far as I could go back to my childhood and remember, Malaysia was the only foreign country I knew of with those truly colorful advertisements proudly displaying the spirit of being “Truly Asia”. 

And today, when I have to sit down and summarize all my thoughts to pen them down, I feel both lucky and confused to do so. Lucky, for I get to blog about how I dream and feel about the elegant, rich and fun-filled land of Malaysia, and confused as to how could I summarize all the thoughts and love for the country which, since the age I have started dreaming and understanding has always fascinated me towards itself for the sheer amount of fun, awesomeness and bliss it has to offer to the world! But hey, let’s start walking down the lane of what all the bubbling and bustling streets and downtown(s) of Malaysia has in store to offer us, and I am sure by the time we reach the end, we’ll left with nothing but wanting for more, more and more...

For me, to know Malaysia is to love Malaysia and to love Malaysia is to know Malaysia, so let me take you to a stroll down the lane and tell you the ultimate 5 to-dos in Malaysia! :)

The Ultimate 5 to-dos in Malaysia

1. Taman Narang, Pehang

Skip visiting this National Park which actually is one of the oldest rain-forest in the world, only if you have not grown up watching innumerous movies in your summer vacations which had the most authentic live right-out-of-a-painting-like scenes shot here while you always wondered if such an amazingly beautiful and serene place really exists! Jungle trekking, river cruise and overnight stay within the place which gives you the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to watch the animals as close as one could and that too in their natural habitat, is all what this adventure land offers you and be assured that the journey has just started unfolding its surprises for you.

2. Sunway Lagoon Theme Park, Selangor

You sure don’t want to visit some “parks” on an international holiday, unless you’re having the best of your life’s time and holidaying nowhere else than Malaysia. Be spoilt for choice from a range of parks, like – Water Park, Amusement Park, Wildlife Park, Extreme Park and Scream Park, or just choose to pamper yourself park-hopping the whole day and you’ll not have had enough even till the end of the day, leave alone even having the thought of being tired. Be engaged and lost in enjoying the world’s largest man-made sandy surf beach, world’s largest pedestrian suspension bridge and Asia’s highest slingshot ride! Grab a board and hit the surf or just go wall climbing, claim victory in the paint ball game or go-karting. Do whatever, but make sure that you don’t drop your jaw on seeing so many choices to pamper you. Period.

3. Batu Ferringhi Beach, Penang

What’s a holiday without some laziness! Isn’t it? Soak up in the sun and just roam around in your best beachwear and the moment the adventurer within you gives a call, jump to the aquatic thrills of wind surfing and canoeing. And as the Sun sets get ready t groove yourself to the carnival-like atmosphere and an open market where you can buy souvenirs for your friends back home who are still planning on how to let their hair loose while you’re already having a gala time in Truly Asia ishtyle!

4. Batu Caves

And now that you’ve already have Malaysia in your heart and have fallen in love with it yet again, be there at Batu Caves – the most iconic and popular tourist attraction in Malaysia. Apart from its prime importance of religious nature, the place houses a major attraction which is a larger-than-life statute of Lord Shiva and a steep slim-up of 272 stairs which on accomplishment gives a breathtaking view of the stunning skyline of the city center. You’re sure that you don’t wanna miss it, just don't. Period.


Woohoo! And here comes my favorite part of any trip – Shopping :D! The world’s fourth best shopping city is where you are and you’ll be highly disappointed, only if you don’t realize that it’s a shopper’s paradise. Consider yourself blessed to be in the land which boasts of having 3 of the world’s largest shopping malls and be spoilt for choice on the abundance of options to choose from on fashion, food and entertainment. You surely just don’t want to check-out from this place. Bet anyone..?

And apart from building up your itinerary in an awesome manner as above, consider visiting the Twin Towers, KL Tower, Little India Brickfields and the Central Market, a mandate without which your visit shall always be incomplete and in case while returning, the immigration officer discovers you miss visiting these, he may send you back to the mainland to complete your holiday. Take my word!

So, pack your bags and hop on my little Red plane and together we can be the buddies for the book we'll call - "Malaysia: The Best That Happened To Us In Life".

Bon Voyage :D
