2005 - Kuala Lumpur, Malacca & Singapore

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

View 2005 Kuala Lumpur on nzhamsta's travel map.

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.

St Paul's Church in Malacca.

The Governor's Residence.

The Stadhuys (aka Red Square) in the centre of the city.

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.
