The Jungle Railway Experience

Trying to discover Malaysia but got tired of the usual kind? Then, you should try hopping into one of the trains that ply the east coast states of Peninsula Malaysia. You can choose to start the rail journey from JB Sentral in Johor Bahru, the southernmost city of Peninsula Malaysia, or you can save a 3 hour journey by boarding the train at Gemas, a transit town in Negeri Sembilan, about one and a half hour drive south of Kuala Lumpur.

The Slithery Attraction of Perlis

Snakes are not one of my favourite animals but a visit to Perlis would not be complete if we missed the only snake farm in Malaysia.

I was accompanying a good friend, Alreaq, for his business trip to Kangar in his brand new white pick up truck. The 650km drive from Kuala Lumpur to Kangar in the Ford Ranger XLT 2.2 Turbo Diesel was a very pleasant one and the truck’s breakthrough engine technology felt very responsive and smooth. Of course the six speed gearbox helps.
