Various Tips to Asia. 1993, 1994 as a consultant to Recsam in Penang. 2001 and 2004 as a tourist.
1993 - 1994 HongKong
On the 1993 and 1994 trips to Recsam we stopped off in Hong Kong on the way over or the way back. In 1994 we took an extra week on the way back to explore some of Hong Kong's amazing streets and culture.
1993 - 1994 Penang
On both the 1993 and 1994 trips we got to stay at the colonial style Eastern and Orient Hotel. It is a sister hotel to Raffles in Singapore. Had a fabulous time exploring this small island off the coast of Malaysia.
1993 - 1994 Singapore
Stopped in Singapore on the way back from Penang and stayed for a week. Had fun exploring this small city/state. Very clean and modern.
2001 Kuala Lumpur
After visiting Malaysia for work, I decided to return as a tourist. Stopped for a few days in Kuala Lumpur.
Spent most of this trip in Penang exploring areas I missed in the 1993-94 trips. The area has become much more modern and busy but it still has the old charm and friendly people.
Stayed for a few days in Singapore on the way back from Penang. Enjoyed the bird park and the night zoo.
Stayed in Penang for two weeks on my own. Then my cousins came over to meet me for the last two weeks. Had a fantastic time showing them around Penang.
2004- Kuala Lumpur
We stopped in Kuala Lumpur on the way home and explored a lot of the city with the help of Sasi. She took us to places we would not have found on our own.
