North South Expressway - The Best Way to Travel

NSE, sure it is. This is my favorite route, because via this hiway, you can enjoy beaituful scenery along the way like tropical forest, plantation, paddy field, local village. I love Malaysia very much.

The North South Expressway (NSE)

The North-South Expressway (NSE), a 772-km expressway extending from the border of Thailand in the north to the border of Singapore in the south, plays a major role in serving the needs of the road transportation industry for the coming decades. Constructed in phases over a period of seven years (from 1988 to 1995), the North-South Expressway was completed 15 months ahead of schedule and was fully operational by February 1994. It was officially opened on September 8 1994 by the Prime Minister of Malaysia, YAB Dato' Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, signalling the coming of age of Malaysia's road transportation system. The North-South Expressway starts at Bukit Kayu Hitam and ends in Johor Bahru, linking all major cities on the West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia between Thailand and Singapore. In addition, three other adjoining expressways complete the total 847.7 km of inter-urban toll highways referred to collectively as the North-South Expressway under PLUS' concession, namely the New Klang Valley Expressway, Federal Highway Route 2 and the Seremban-Port Dickson Highway.

The immediate benefits of the project were most evident in reductions in congestion and travelling time experienced by expressway users, especially during festive seasons when the traditional "balik kampung" phenomenon manifests itself in the form of peak traffic volumes as Malaysians return to their hometowns to celebrate the holidays. Other benefits in the form of economic development were perhaps less apparent in the early years but became more and more visible as new townships and industrial parks began to take shape along the length of the expressway and trade and tourism enjoyed a new era of growth. Today, the North-South Expressway connects to other major expressways such as the North-South Expressway Central Link (NSECL) and the Malaysia-Singapore Second Crossing (MSSC), enhancing even further the level of accessibility to the West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia via major ports of entry into the country.

My Trip to Penang Hill (Bukit Bendera) & Penang Bridge

My trip to Penang Hill on 13 March 2007 on School Holiday. So many people there during holiday but we enjoyed the trip. We bought train ticket at 4.00 pm for trip at 5.30pm. Even we and have to wait 1 and half hour, but we enjoyed the scenery and the freshness up there.

Penang Hill (Bukit Bendera)

Malaysia's first hill station, Penang Hill is 830 meters (2730ft) above sea level, visitors can ascend to the top by either hiking up or by the funicular railway which has been operational since 1922. Apart from the cool, refreshing climate and the fantastic view at the summit, visitors can also view the picturesque bungalows, a beautiful flower garden and a bird park.

There are bungalows for rent and a hotel for those who want to stay for more than a day. Visitors can also indulge in refreshments and snacks at a convenient tea kiosk located on top of the hill.

There is a good walking track up the hill. It takes 4 hours to reach the top and is recommended only for the more energetic. The jungle trail begins at the 'moongate' at Jalan Air Terjun, approximately 300m from the Botanical Gardens entrance.

The most popular way up the hill is via a funicular train, which takes about half an hour. Walking up the hill takes about four hours.

The funicular rail service begins at 6.30am and ends at 9.30pm

Fare: RM4.00 adults & RM2.00 children.

Largest Tang Lung in Malaysia

Largest Tang Lung?

I think so. This is largest Tang Lung i ever saw at Suria KLCC, Kuala Lumpur. Too bad, this picture not large enough when i posted into this blog.

I have to snap more than five times and merge using Canon PhotoSticth software.

I thinks it's not to late to wish Happy Chinese New Year and Gong Xi Fa Chai to all Chinese all over the world.

Those who plan visit Asia, don't forget Malaysia because Malaysia is the truly Asia. You will not forget every single moment when you been here.

I'm proud to be Malaysian.
