I came back home in Vietnam and later, went to Kuala Lumpur with my family.
Most of the time I stayed at my hometown, Ho Chi Minh City- the craziest city of Vietnam. For three days, I stayed in Nha Trang, a beautiful city by the sea and my childhood's place. I used to live here with my grandparents for four years.
After that, I flew with my mum, my aunt and her daughter to Malaysia.
First, we visited Genting Highlands- a famous casino-based vacation resort in Malaysia, 90 km from Kuala Lumpur and spent a night at First World Hotel, the fourth largest hotel in the world by rooms- it has a total of 6118 rooms. Actually, we were not very happy at this hotel, which was remarked by Guinness World Records. Our rooms are tiny and strongly reeked of cigarette.What I like most about Genting Highlands is its cable car, which at its opening (1997) used to be the world's fastest and South East Asia's longest gondola lift. From the cable car, the view of the tropical forests is incredible.
I like Kuala Lumpur very much. The national capital of Malaysia is clean and full with green trees. However, the heat here is unbearable. We visited the National Palace, the National Monument and the famous Petronas twin towers. Nowadays, there is a lot of impressing skycrapers in Asia; but to me, this twin towers still are the most beautiful. We had a shopping day at Suria KLCC located at the base of the twin towers.
On the last day in Malaysia, we went to Batu caves- one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India. At last, we dropped by Putrajaya, the administrative capital of Malaysia before heading to the airport for the flight back home.
After the trip to Malaysia, I had two days to pack my luggage for the flight back to Frankfurt. Within 3 weeks, I had to fly more often than a stewardess does. Four days are all I had to relax, before the new semester begins.

At the Batu Caves, there are numerous macaque monkeys. One of them tried to steal my umbrella.
