The return to Malaysia (for the shake of a Visa)

with 4 comments

Malaysia (Borneo) had not stricken me as much as Indonesia did but the need to go there was imminent – this time I was to arrive in the peninsular part and spend some days in its capital; Kuala Lumpur. The reason was that we needed a Visa for Vietnam and the nearest embassy to Indonesia was there.

I was told that Kuala Lumpur was worth a visit but as always when it comes to big cities (and especially capitals) I did not believe it 100%. After nearly a week of being here I have to say that I really like it! The main reason is that it is easy to walk around it – even the presence of cars and traffic is not that bad. In many places the trees are of the primary forest that used to be there before the city (big old fellows hanging over you). It has a nature reserve, a very nice and highly educational National Museum, embassies from all over the world (useful when travelling) and much more that make it a great brake when passing from countries like Indonesia to the north, or the other way round.

In Wednesday 22th of July we’ll be flying to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. Kuala Lumpur was definitely a very good handful of “civilization” and a re-fueling station and I would more than recommend it to anybody that wants to visit.
