Malaysia day 6: national museum & going back home

This is already my final day in Malaysia. Time has gome by so fast. I'm sad to leave this country, but I'm mostly happy I got to experience all of this. To make the most of the final few hours I had left, I decided to go to the national museum, right next to my hotel. I only had time to see one of the exhibitions they had. It was about the history of Malaysia. At half past two I got on the train to the airport in order to get back home again.

Malaysia day 5: bird park&China town Kuala Lumpur

This was my last full day in Malaysia unfortunately. I made the most of it though! First I went to the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park. It's basically a fake jungle complete with waterfalls and there are lots of different kinds of birds that just walk and fly around freely. Half way throught the park I decided to have a break from the heat. I bought a fresh coconut and sat down at one of the tables in the shadow. After the bird park I went to Chinatown. I had some lunch in a restaurant called 'Old China'. Afterwards I went to see all of the different markets in this area. You can basically buy anything you want here, lot's of fake designer stuff as well.
