2005 - Kuala Lumpur, Malacca & Singapore

Another couple of weeks off, this time in the Malaysian peninsula.

After a couple of days in Kuala Lumpur, I caught the bus (a comfortable 2 hours) down the coast to Malacca. This is an old town with a rich Malay and European history.

From Malacca, it was another bus ride down to Singapore. This was again a comfortable ride with painless customs and immigration at both Johor Bharu and Singapore. I like Singapore, especially for food and shopping. I stayed in Little India right next to some of the best Indian restaurants in the city. Sentosa Island is a prime destination for tourists and locals and contains the only beach in Singapore.
