    Malacca september 07

    Ive just returned from traveling from Singapore up to Malacca { Malaysian west coast } on to KL, up to Kota Baru on the Thai border, on to the Perintian Islands, down to the Tamen Negara National Park on the jungle railway, and then train all the way back to Singapore through the center of Malaysia.

    Covered a huge amount of kl m all by road and train except for 1 flight from KL to Kota Baru on the far north east coast of Malaysia near the Thai border.

    It was a brilliant trip and although Ive been to Malaysia before i had not seen much of it. The object of this trip was to overland and experience as much of the country and people as we could and i must say we were very impressed by the friendliness of the locals, the quality of accommodation and food.

    I will break this thread up in to different sections as Ive got many photos of each place and ill kick it of with Malacca.

    Enjoy
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    Straights Meridian Hotel Malacca

    This hotel was the bargain of our trip as we had a 41 sq m apartment for 88 ringit. Separate bedroom , kitchen and sitting room complete with a huge swimming pool. It was Ramadan so they had a special going on. The correct price was 130 ringit so it is still very cheap and much less than KL.
    88 Ringit = $ 31 AUD so you can appreciate our joy and complete with a top breakfast as well.

    Churches and history

    Considering Malaysia is predominantly Islamic there are a shite load a catholic churches around . Never the less Malacca remains one of Malaysia's premier tourist destinations, with its multi-cultural heritage and a multitude of museums and other cultural attractions. She's a top little place. i must say Im not a religious sort of fella and the only time i go near a church is when Im traveling. Funny that innit.

    Jonkers street

    This is china town and is full of antique shops, restored heritage buildings, shop houses and restaurants. a great place to go at night time as it turns into an out door market.
