Kuala Lumpur, the capital, is a mixture from east and west. Skyscrapers, like the famous twin Towers are the landmarks of the western culture, the railway station with its north Indian-Islamic architectural style as well as the large mosque or Chinatown reflect the eastern culture again.

We started our Malaysia journey in Kuala Lumpur. The city is different than the usual Asian metropolises. The social life is formed by the Islamic religion, but it is most open-minded and modern. We had never the feeling that the people must subject to a religious dictation.

From Kuala Lumpur we went by car up to the Cameron Highlands. Here it looks like in England. Landscape and houses are very British. A visit in the tea-plantations is very recommend. Here you can see the tea-production from picking up the leaves till to the sales.

Unfortunately the sea is not clear and not of best quality, so that it was better to jump in the hotel pool. Georgetown, the island capital with its colonial quarter is a worthwhile trip, if one like to make a break from being lazy.
