A little prayer for the souls on board the MH307…

 Good times need never end! As you get ready for the airport and your flight back home, relive the high points of your Far-east “holiday”. We are confident you will join us again, sometime soon.... Please do give us your valuable feedback on iThought@HolidaysWereFun.com.

Really?
Happy memories?
Or more like a boot camp?
That’s not a way to travel,
This plan might work for you if you travel to impress the world; it’s not surprising to see people get into the social ‘check-in’ frenzy even before checking in their luggage. Before the place and its culture could sink in you are sent packing on a plane, exhausted!

A “packed holiday” addict friend was on a hunt for a perfect destination for a few days to unwind,
His agenda was,
Find me a place,
Not too far, but exotic,
Not too expensive, but rich.
Bit of a challenge I suppose,
So I dug up my scrap book and cooked up a perfect holiday he will remember for the rest of his life.

Dear traveler,  
You asked for,
Some place not too far, is just 5hrs off Mumbai,
Some place exotic, how does a tropic rainforest sound?
Some place inexpensive, you can travel here on a shoe string budget,
Some place rich, its oozing with culture, heritage and experiences.
I give you,
Malaysia, truly Asia.

Things to check out in Malaysia:
The  Petronas Towers , the Genting Highlands and  Langkawi  should definitely make it to your must see list. But if you’re feeling funky then take my word and check some of my travel postcard from my trip to Malaysia,
( p.s. I know you’re too lazy to research, so have linked all the postcard images to websites that give you the best intel about the place and  have linked the postcard write-ups to the 
“getting there pages” to help you plan better.
So click away !
