Klokken tikker mot eventyr. I dag er vaksiner bestilt, og det begynner å gå opp for meg at reisen er rett rundt gjørnet. Vi skal være et par dager i Singapore før ferden fortsetter Bangkok som endestasjon for denne gang. Turen er bestilt gjennom Kilroy Travels, en nettside jeg kan sitte timesvis å drømme meg bort på. Hadde lommeboken tillatt det, ville jeg gjenomført alle reisene de har…
Uansett, her har du full oversikt over hvordan turen blir fra vi setter nesa fra Singapore mot Bangkok:
Day 2: Melaka
A reasonably short bus journey takes us to the old port town of Melaka where we can wander the streets and absorb the atmosphere and heritage of this historically important maritime town. With the beginning of trade with China in the early 15th century, Melaka rapidly became the most important trading port in South East Asia. Chinese traders were followed by those from India. With them came Islam and soon the Melaka sultans ruled the largest empire in Malaysia’s history. Successively the Portugese, Dutch and British arrived in search of trading wealth. While the effects of recent economic growth is apparent, Melaka remains one of Malaysia’s premier destinations. There are temples, churches and mosques, museums and forts to explore. We will also experience a taste of old Asia with a trishaw ride
around the streets of old Melaka.
Days 3-4: Kuala Lumpur
Arriving in Kuala Lumpur at lunchtime, we have ample time to see the city’s impressive architecture and experience the fascinating cultural mix that gives this city such a uniquely cosmopolitan feel. A guided tour of the city’s sights will give you a great insight into the capital. The evening is best spent at the night market sampling different cuisine and bargain hunting among the stalls. Don’t forget a visit to the Petronas Towers, the tallest twin towers in the world.
