My first step into a foreign country, in Kuala Lumpur LCCT terminal on 12th March 2011. Then we (3 of my friends and myself) have gone to KL Central, to go to Bukit Bintang, only place which I have known in KL. Bukit Bintang is nearby KLCC, and Petronas towers. We were searching for some cheap hotels, then we found a hostel for cheap rate, then we stayed there itself. We roamed around the whole Bukit Bintang to find nice places to eat malay and chinese foods, mostly street foods. Evening we have gone to Petronas towers. Since our plan is to stay for one day, next day we packed and moved to LCCT terminal, for that we need to walk for 5 mins, then Mono rail, High speed train and Bus to reach LCCT.
I have updated my travel maps till date, including last trip to Philippines.
We reached Swarnabhoomi Airport in Bangkok. Then we moved to Hotel, that is package from here on. Since this is our first trip to a foreign nation, so we decided to book a package except flights. Our package includes Accomodation, Airport transfers, and half or full day tours. After reaching hotel, we went on to visit Budha temple must visit place in Bangkok. In the evening, went to MBK, Siam Paragon are biggest malls in the city. Note: not to shop, just window shopping. We went for shopping to indra market which is nearby our hotel. While return back, we had street foods includes grasshopper(fry), Oysters(raw), Oyster omelette, Fish(steam), Octopus(barbeque), pork, steak, etc.
One of the expensive city which I have visited. I stayed in Empire Hostel, Jalan Besar. As for as my view, this city is not foreign country to me, Since I can see many indians here, especially tamils. I used metro trains for sight seeing. I have gone to Sentosa Island, one of the sight seeing place. Sentosa has Universal Studios, Underwater world, 4D movie shows, Siloso beach, Merlion statue, etc.
Since I have stayed for just one day, I have visited only Sentosa island. But still its expensive for me. I spent around USD100 for that one day stay.
Smallest country, I have ever visited. Full of gambling.
Reached Japan on 22nd Sept 2011, in Narita International Airport.
