Last November my friends and I flew to Singapore and stayed for 3 nights before boarding our cruise on Princess Cruises. On our cruise we had stops in Kuala Lumpur & Penang, Malaysia, Phuket, Thailand and Bali, Indonesia.
This is a Hindu Temple in Johor Bahu, Malaysia, also known as the Bat Temple. Our tour guide promised me, that the 125 steps were not steep, I climbed to the top. Out of breath and now swearing off all temples of 100 steps or more-I am told, I must remove my shoes and walk in the bat dung to view this temple-I decided against this.
This was the highlight of my trip. A visit to the Elephant Safari Park in the middle of island of Bali. Tina (elephant) and I spent many happy hours together riding and playing.
Perhaps, the most disappointing part of my visit. I had been to Phuket 3 years earlier, prior to Typhoon Jenny in 2015. The island still has a lot to rebuild. Just not as pretty and green as it used to be.
