We checked out of the hotel and went to visit the Taman Botani Gardens or botanical gardens. This garden is just around three years old. Can you believe it? Please do because if you were there you would understand why.
It is incredibly warm and humid here in Malaysia and everything grows so quickly. This garden contains about 700 species from over 90 countries, including over 50 species of palms. At 230 acres this will truly be an impressive garden when completed. Only phase one of three is open to visitors right now. As you can see by some of these pictures, it truly was a wonderful start to the tour.

We then visited the Prime Ministers Residence where there were no photos allowed inside the gates but I did take one outside the gates with the pink interlocking brick road.

Next was a visit to the Putra Mosque – that is the building you see the outside of in the water, then some shots of the inside and of course the three of us ladies dressed for entry into the Mosque (I am the one on the
right) After that we spent some time in the Square, an area full of stalls, shops and great food! From there we headed towards the airport and a stop at Restoran Sri Sepang for some excellent Chinese food. KL Airport is about the cleanest airport I have ever been in…not a speck of dirt and easy to get around in. I have included a picture of the inside of the building so you can see what I mean by clean.

We leave for the short flight to Miri and arrive at our hotel Parkcity Everly and head to dinner. I have included a view from my room of the water plus my room, the outside of the hotel and the drive showing the red carpet…we didn’t realize it at the time, but the King and Queen of Malaysia were staying at our hotel as well for the Festival that we would be attending.
