Malaysia and Cambodia


This is about my upcoming trip to Malaysia and Cambodia. The first part is pre-trip - information about flights, itineraries, accommodation and all the things that you need to do to plan an overseas holiday. This is my first trip to Asia and I hope it may help others. Comments are very welcome and anyone who has travelled to Malaysia and/or Cambodia, please feel free to comment and offer any advice or tips that you think would be helpful. As of today ( 28th February) , in exactly 11 days (minus 30 minutes) I will be in Kuala Lumpur.

I had the most amazing time and hope you enjoy reading about my trip. Each post is numbered and I'm doing them in order from start to finish - a little like a diary.



30. Malaysia Tourist Information

Walking a short way to the Information Centre I was struck by the lovely trees.

Above: Entrance Gate
The Information Centre was pretty and the entrance was welcoming. There were lovely plants and nice gardens.

Malaysia Tourism Centre
The building was white with columns and colonial type windows at the end of a path flanked by sculpted trees and timber seating. And was deliciously cool inside after the heat of the day. I asked the ladies there for advise on where to get a fish pedicure. Fish Spa is the correct name and they directed me to Berjaya Times Square. I did ask were there any others (I remember people back home had mentioned a few in and around Chinatown). Their response was yes, there were others, but the one in Berjaya was the one they would recommend - it was a big Spa and very clean.

Above: Tourist Gardens
This is just a small section of the beautifully laid gardens that surround the Info Centre.

Above: Water Fountain
This fountain was to the right in the building towards the front and you could hear the tinkling of water as it gently flowed.

Above: Bullock Cart/Kereta Lambu
The sign nest to the cart reads - The bullock cart which at one time was the main mode of transportation for the rich in Malacca, is unlike those found elsewhere. The carts are beautifully decorated, with bright colours and trappings and have the shape of a pointed roof, similar to the horn of a bull. The bullock carts are believed to have been introduced by the Indian merchants in Malacca Sultanate around the 15th century.
