Sunrise/Sunset

That is one of the memories that comes to mind when I think of Malaysia.
The beautiful sunrises that I seen in Langkawi and the awesome sunsets in Borneo.
This beautiful sunset picture was taken from our hotel room in Kota Kinabalu when the sun was setting over the South China sea.

Birds

Malaysia has a varied bird-life. There are spectacular birds of prey, the most common are the hawk eagles and the brahminy kites. We have spent hours watching them soar over our heads on the island of Langakawi and at Kuala Selangor Nature Park.
Whether or not you venture into the jungle, you will be sure to see some of the 450 species of birds and several of the 150,000 soecies of insects that call Malaysia home.

Butterflies

Malaysia has over 100 species of beautifully colored butterflies. You can see them on a flower, fluttering by you on a trail, or you can go to a butterfly farm.
There is one in Penang, Kuala Lumpur, and Cameron Hills.
The butterfly here has landed on a beautiful hibiscus, Malaysia's national flower.
There are over 8,000 species of flowering plants, in Malaysia,

    You are, indeed, the "Thai" queen. Super packing tip. Water bungalows look grand. Wow to the hotel tips. Monkey sanctuary and cat museum would be favorites for me. Loved photo of Eagle Sq. The Blue Mosque..elegant.
