8 places that you should not miss when traveling in Malaysia.

Before we get on with the topic, I just want to formally inform all the subscribers and readers of my blog that I have acquired my own domain name and thus, would be using the address www.weheartraveling.com instead of the old www.weheartraveling.wordpress.com from now on. I set my last site to private, so don’t wonder if you cannot access it. All the content and followers from my old site has been migrated to my new site.

Now, back to what you came here for!

General Info:

Malaysia has always been known to be a country rich in culture, food and history. Being a relatively large country compared to its southern neighbor (Singapore), travelers would find themselves frequenting public transportation in order to reach some of the places far away from Kuala Lumpur. Travelers would never have to worry though, as the transportation system here is well developed. Also, the locals are very fluent in speaking in English, so asking directions would be a walk in the park.

Geographical Orientation:

Malaysia is also a country only a little bit off the equator, which means that the temperature here is undeniably HOT. The temperature can shoot up to a whopping 34°c in Kuala Lumpur specially during summer. So, make sure to bring the appropriate clothes. You would also like to stock up on extra water bottles, umbrellas, face towels, and extra shirts for that hot city weather.

Climate/Weather:

As I have mentioned earlier, Malaysia’s climate is hot. But, that does not mean that rain is rare here. Even during their summer season, rain is still expected to fall frequently. Don’t worry though, as the rain here only comes in short bursts. Bring an umbrella or two even if the day is pleasant, just to be sure.

Food:

As a country embraced by different cultures and nationalities, food here is as diverse as it can be. I personally recommend you to try these out:

– Bak Kut Teh (Jalan Alor Night Market)

– Banana Leaf Meal (Little India)

– Cendol (Best Cendol is found at Penang road, Penang)

– Char Kuay Teow (Best ones are also in Penang and Jalan Alor Night Market)

– Chicken Rice Balls (Malacca)

– Durian (It’s Malaysia’s national fruit and for good reason. Durian here are really creamy and sweet)

– Laksa (Jalan Alor Night market and Penang)

– Nasi Goreng and Roti (Batu Caves or Little India)
