Next Country, Malaysia!

March 11
Left around 8 am and headed out to the border.  This was definitely a different border crossing than any I have gone to.  We had to collect our luggage and get off the bus.  We had to walk up to the crossing and fill out a form to exit Thailand.  Then, we walked a minute to enter Malaysia.

Once everyone was through, we walked to our van and continued our journey to our first stop.  This van was comfy as each person was able to have two seats so we could stretch out a bit; a definite advantage to travelling in a smaller group.

Unfortunately, we hit a lot of traffic along our route.  The first traffic jam was half an hour but it was not the only one we encountered.  We finally got to our hotel around 9 pm.  Most of us ran out, got some food and then went to sleep.

We did a half day tour of Georgetown.

Chew Jetty:

3 temples – Chinese, Muslim and Thai. Unfortunately I don't remember which is which so if I have a reader who can help me, I would appreciate it.

Temple 1:

Temple 2, the outdoor gardens


After our tour, the afternoon was free to do what we wanted.  I was going to buy some souvenirs but our tour guide said we would get better selection in Kuala Lumpur.  Instead, I relaxed and wrote up some postcards to send home.

Supper ended up being a bubble tea and salad due to the hotel restaurant being closed and the market from last night being closed.

Another bus trip tomorrow and off to Kuala Lumpur!  Lots to see and do here.
