“He who does not travel does not know the value of men.” – Moorish proverb”
The first ever traveler on the Earth was Adam, certainly he was expelled from the heaven to the Earth.
Do you agree with me…? Don’t you? Anyways it makes sense that the first travelers were Adam and Eve.
So, we have the virus or the germ of traveling in our blood, every human being is inherent the quality of a traveler.
I agree what Dalai Lama is said, “Once a year goes someplace you’ve never been before.”(Dalai Lama)But most of the time we find difficult in the hectic lifestyle to spend some time in traveling; the busy schedule of life doesn’t give some moment of leisure. So, try to steal some moment for yourself from your life. Better be a traveler not a tourist…! Jokes apart I like traveling whenever I steal the time. Now the Malaysian Government has given the opportunity to every blogger to visit Malaysia as a guest…ha…ha...but it is not a joke, on a free trip to Malaysia. If the blog is chosen among top 10 blog posts. I found it as a golden opportunity and First of all I visited the Malaysian Govt. official site to acquaint myself about Malaysia.
As I know India and Malaysia both countries historically and culturally are of same up to an huge extent because Once Malaysia was known as Malay, basically belonged to the Hindu Dynasty. Though Malaysia is now an Islamic country but culture of this country is very familiar to the Indians, so I can take this country my second home.
I was overwhelmed when I saw the images on the official site. Wow… What a picturesque sites in Malaysia …! Splendid! Marvelous…! I was spell bound. Very captivating, very…exotic locations are in Malaysia. I complete package is in front of me, by raising a hand I can touch it but it is not so that easy…
I can’t define myself a traveler but after seeing the official site of Malaysia… I want to declare myself a traveler and a tourist. I agree with Ray Bradbury-““We travel for romance, we travel for architecture, and we travel to be lost.”(Ray Bradbury).
Malaysian govt. has given the opportunity to choose the five locations of my dream choice to visit, but I think it might be injustice if the remaining tourist spots would not be seen. Through the images, anybody can easily understand that every tourist segment of Malaysia is a worth seeing place, so why injustice with the tourist…? I think Malaysian govt. should ponder over it. Anyways I have to fulfill the ritual of 5 tourist spot of my choice.
I am staunch nature lover. So I first choose:-
Gunung Mulu National Park, Sarawak- As I read the description of Gunung Mulu National park and I came to know about it. It is home to one of the longest amazing networks of caves in the world. And that really excites me to watch it. I don’t know whether it was my dream to have an opportunity to visit such natural caves because I heard a lot and also watched some documentary on Discovery and National Geographic channels. I am dying to see it and may be, I will overcome my fear of darkness.

The amazing pinnacles at Mount Api are absolutely stunning to witness. A visit to Mulu NP will bring my holiday in Malaysia to new heights! I don’t see any pinnacles like structure- this will be my first encounter with any Pinnacles.
2-Taman Negara National Park- What specific feature about Taman Negara National Park attracts me...? No one can guess...? when I read that this is is one of the oldest tropical rain forest in the world. It features massive trees, waterfalls, jungle treks of various duration and the world’s longest canopy walkways. Several trails enable the visitor to explore the forest without a guide.

3-Batu Caves- I put Batu Caves at third place to visit. A limestone outcrop located just north of Kuala Lumpur, Batu Caves has three main caves featuring temples and Hindu shrines. I am a Hindu, so it would be a special visit for me except India, It would be a special treat and special feast for my eyes to visit this place. As in the image, a large statue of Goddess is seen-I can say I never ever see such a huge statue in my life. So I won't miss the chance.
4-Langkawi Island, Kedah:- Langkawi is the world class resort destination- as it is mentioned in so many places. , Langkawi's tropical splendor should not be underestimated despite the tinge of over development that includes a gondola that takes visitors to the top of the mountain for great views (never mind that it is intrinsically an eye soar against the brilliant blast of green jungle. It is located just south of the Thai-Malaysian border on the developed west coast of peninsular Malaysia. Enjoy the clear waters, duty-free shopping, and sneaky monkeys. Such description catches anyone’s attention to visit the place. The amazing pictures give Langkawai in fourth place.
5-Kuala Lumpur: - This city is the capital of Malaysia is the tourist attraction in so many ways. As the shopping point of view it offers a lot to the tourists. Affordable rates give the tourist an awesome experience of shopping. The unforgettable experience of Kualalumpur is the Petronas Twin Towers. It was the world’s tallest buildings till 2004. However, the towers are still the tallest twin buildings in the world. But the worth remembering feature is a sky bridge between the two towers that I can say after witnessing the bridge.
Some other places that I put in my chart of visiting are as:-
It is situated off the coast of notherneastern Malaysia not far from the Thai border. It is must go place for the budget travelers. Some most beautiful beaches and great diving are there. These beaches are a beautiful blend of white sandy shore ad turquoise blue sea.
Pulau Tioman:-It is a small island. It is selected as one of the world’s most beautiful islands. It is an ideal for marine life forms. It has white coral reefs.Certainllly a paradise for scuba divers. I would to see it, if I get a chance.
There are so many destinations, tourist spots, worth seeing places, travelling sites in Malaysia and I am helpless to count them. So I am finishing my blog. I last thing I want to mention here that I am a vegetarian and I don’t think, if I visit Malaysia I will find any difficulty for veg food.
