My Visit to Malaysia
“Malaysia, truly Asia” tourism advertisements have always lured us but planning a trip never occurred to us and even when it did, either there was a crunch for money or the school curriculum interfered. Needless to say, it just remained a dream.
One fine day, we get to know that our dream is coming true after all. My husband had to travel there owing to his job and we were permitted to go as well. Our stay would be catered for; we just had to buy our tickets. I nearly swooned with joy because for once even the kids and their school curriculum did not put a spoke in the wheel! It was a four days long trip to Langkawi, an archipelago of ninety-nine islands. We got there to be mesmerized by the breathtaking view of the island. Thankfully, we got a hotel overlooking the beach and that was all we wanted! We had to force ourselves to see other places because we were happy sun bathing and riding the waves! We visited one of the three Geoparks which Langkawi is famous for. It was an awesome experience. Langkawi, being a duty -free island had one major attraction- Chocolates! We gorged on them and bought a whole lot home.
Langkawi is a dream for scuba divers and snorkelers but we were not that adventurous. Though we did not visit the mainland of Malaysia, we had a perfect and a memorable holiday.
