Moved through Malaysia relatively quickly just visiting Kuala Lumpur, Melaka and Singapore on my way. I am sure I will be back again since there is a lot more to Malaysia than those places. The first thing what I noticed once arrived to KL is diversity of people. Mix of so many cultures. Also KL has two iconic buildings – the Petronas Towers.

Located in northern Taiwan, Taipei is the political, economic, financial, and cultural center of the island. It has thriving arts and academic scene and countless modern commercial buildings. Besides the friendly, welcoming nature of Taiwan’s inhabitants, the high level of development created by Taiwan’s economics make Taipei a cosmopolitan city that brings together the traditional and the new. Museums houses the world’s finest collection of art; beautiful temples are the setting for colorful folk festivals. Taipei offers bustling night markets, the 101 tower and streets lined with shops selling brand name products.
