La Mosquée Nationale à Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia – National Mosque and Central Market

Malaysia is an important Muslim country in Southeast Asia and Sunni Islam is the state religion. The National Mosque in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur is an important place for all Malaysian Muslims and a delight of modernism and architecture for tourists. Pekeliling bus station, early afternoon. The bus finally arrives, the engine snoring and spitting out all the smoke possible. At the front of the bus, the small sign indicates a multitude of stops, including, in small, "Jerantut". We ask for confirmation to the cashier of the bus agency, who hides behind his counter, and returns us a positive nod. It is indeed the bus to the famous Taman Negara national park and its thousand-year-old forest, the next step of this trip in Malaysia, but without really knowing what awaits us when we arrive in the park. The religious…

Tour KL à Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia – KL Tower and Batu Caves

Although the state religion of Malaysia is Islam, the Batu Caves north of Kuala Lumpur form the largest Hindu temple outside India, guarded by the majestic statue of Murugan, god of the divine army in the Hindu religion. W hen the doors open, the city suddenly appears, as far as the eye can see. This one is very quickly buried under the mist and the clouds, as if they announced the end of the world. Rolls of dark clouds melt over the chain of buildings and houses that make up the city of Kuala Lumpur and it would take nothing to be swept away by torrents of rain. It's as if it were nightfall, even though it's barely three in the afternoon. "Hello, leave your bags here, please". After a few seconds of elevator ride to the top of the…

Malaysia – Chinatown and Sri Mahamariamman

Indians and Chinese are the two largest minorities in Malaysia. In general, the two communities live in separate neighborhoods in Kuala Lumpur. But the Hindu temple of Sri Mahamariamman is an exception, being located in the heart of the Chinese district. T he clouds are coming in full force. The humidity is overwhelming and the sun starts to disappear little by little. It is only a round and transparent ball. The sky becomes dangerous, but how can we leave the refreshing pool when the temperature is over thirty degrees? Also, this has to be one of the best pools in Kuala Lumpur for its breathtaking view: located at more than forty floors, it offers a direct view of the Petronas Towers, which are among the tallest towers in the world and are a real economic showcase for Malaysia, of the…

Plage sur les îles Perhentians

Malaysia – The paradise islands of Perhentian

Off the coast of the Malay Peninsula lies a string of islands called the Perhentian Islands. A small paradise on earth, the clear waters and white sand of the Perhentian Islands are the perfect place to learn to dive. The sound of small waves crashing on the white sandy beach at a constant pace, again and again. The sun that caresses every part of the body. The warm wind that sweeps over the skin, giving a pleasant feeling of well-being.  After a while, we wake up slowly from our sleep. We look to the left, the beach of fine sand, with coconut palms. Same idyllic spectacle on the right. Right in front is offered the panorama of a turquoise blue sea, that even the posters of the Clubmed (to quote only them) cannot compete. The only thing to do is…
