Malaysia, 2012

After Hong Kong, it was off to the "Truly Asia" country of Malaysia. We spent a couple of nights in Kuala Lumpur in the bustling area of Bukit Bintang and ventured out to the Cameron Highlands. 

The Petronas Tower - the twin skyscrapers in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.

the Batu Caves, a short drive away from the busy city centre

Monkeys were to the  Batu Cave as Deers were to Nara. They were everywhere!

the absolute highlight of Malaysia was hands down the Cameron Highlands. The area is the size of Singapore and is covered by tea leaves, primarily owned by the Boh Tea plantation.

Literally, endless tea leaves for miles on miles. You can walk through the tea manufacturing plant or take in the view while drinking some fresh tea is priceless.

I highly recommend a visit to the Cameron Highlands. Although a bit tough to get to (you'll have to drive), it has tons to do aside from just tea. For example, a great butterfly garden.

Never seen so many butterflies!

It also had a nice cute little strawberry farm :)
