The last fortnight has been so crazy with almost everyone in my family falling ill (maid included) that I had barely any time to blog. Or shop. Or plan my summer vacation!!! Usually by this time of the year, I am pretty decided with where I want to go for the summer vacation and I have one domestic and one international options ready, with the tentative itinerary, hotels, flight schedules etc. Yes, I love planning holidays and hate going in a tour. It’s mid-March already and I haven’t even narrowed down to my two options! Shocking, really. Anyway, since we embarked on the journey of parenthood, all our holidays have been planned keeping the kids in mind. Hence, one of the options I’m thinking about this year, is MALAYSIA….

If Malaysia conjures up images of pristine beaches, rain forests and the Petronas towers and you find yourself wondering what else it has to offer the kids, then read on. Here are the five main things that I’m sure my boys (and hubby and I) will enjoy….
1) KUALA LUMPUR, BERJAYA TIMES SQUARE AND SUNWAY LAGOON
Petronas Towers, the world’s tallest twin towers connected by a glass and steel skybridge is fascinating to the two boys who love to make tall towers and buildings with their playing blocks and Legos.
|Cosmo’s World – Malaysia’s Largest Indoor Theme Park|
The Berjaya Times Square, a monorail ride away has Malaysia’s largest indoor theme park with bumper cars, pendulum swings, inverting roller-coaster etc. Everything to keep hyperactive 8 and almost 4 year old brats busy.
|Sunway Lagoon Malaysia|
Just look at that!!! It’s an aerial view of the Sunway Lagoon. Need I say more???
2) GENTING HIGHLANDS / ELEPHANT ORPHANAGE / ORAGUTAN SANCTUARY
3) TAMAN NEGARA
After theme parks and man-made lagoons, it’s time to take the kids closer to mother Nature. Taman Negara is the world’s oldest rainforest and was also the location for the reality television show “Iss Jungle Se Mujhe Bachao”. Besides the vast variety of flora and fauna that the oldest rainforest would undoubtedly be home to, it also has the world’s longest canopy walkway.
4) LANGKAWI MARINE PARK
