Vibrant Penang – Part 1

Penang Island’s George Town is probably the most vibrant city of Malayisa. A trip to Malaysia is incomplete without a visit to George Town. This capital city is home to hundreds of cute cafes, bars and restaurants. Famous for its unique street food, George Town has been inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And this is where you will find a lot of graffiti and murals, which lure thousands of travelers to this city. And to be honest, I explored the city randomly. Beer and street food made the trip memorable. Have you been to this part of Malaysia ?

Klai Kangwon Palace is one of Hua Hin’s popular tourists spots. It used to be a primary summer royal residence of King Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX) of Thailand.

in 1926, the construction of the massive compound was commissioned by King Prajadhipok (Rama VII). Finally it was completed in 1933. Surrounded by sea, Klai Kangwon has become a major attraction for foreign tourists.

The palace has many colorful and buildings with peaceful and picturesque surroundings. After negotiating with the driver, I hired a tuk tuk from downtown of Hua Hin and reached the place in around 40 minutes. As it was rainy season, I was completely drenched but it was full of fun and excitement.

Langkawi’s Magnificent Seven Wells Waterfall

While holidaying in Langkawi I was advised to visit Seven Wells Waterfall, one of the most picturesque tourist spots of the island. Known locally as Telaga Tujuh, this magnificent waterfall is named after the seven natural pools.

I booked a taxi from my hostel to reach the waterfall, which is situated in Pantai Kok area. It is also close to the Pantai Kok Beach and Oriental Village. One has to climb 638 steps to reach the place. While climbing the steps, one can enjoy the vast rainforest of Mount Mat Cincang. You are bound to see a large number of flora and fauna. I stayed there around one hour and indulged in swimming. It is recommended to be very careful while swimming. Definitely one of my life’s most memorable experiences, which I will cherish forever.

Interesting Places Of Kanchanaburi

My visit to Kanchanaburi was short yet memorable. Situated at the confluence of the rivers Kwai Noi and Kwai Yai, Kanchanaburi has many interesting places to explore only if you have time. As I ran short of time, I could visit only two places of interest (apart from Erawan National Park) – the Bridge over the River Kwai and Kanchanaburi War Cemetery.

The Bridge over the River Kwai is hugely popular among visitors. The Bridge over the Mae Klong was part of the Death Railway. It was built by the Japanese during WWII with the help of prisoners and slave laborers. Japan built the Burma Railway (also known as the Death Railway) to support its forces in the Burma campaign of WWII.

Kanchanaburi War Cemetery was another place which I explored on foot as it was close to my guesthouse. It was dedicated to victims of Japanese imprisonment while building the Burma Railway. It was designed by Colin St Clair Oakes. More than 6,000 prisoners of war are buried there. The place makes you realize the dark side of history.
