Many miles from home there is a place with groves of palm trees, a Cloud Forest, roosters eating coconuts inside a Hindu shrine cave, monkeys that never tire of snacks, vibrant flower petals, structures built as works of art, dinner parties in parking lots, less napkins and more laughter, where mosquitos and tiny ants are abundant, colorful buildings hold stories within their walls, beneath a pulsing sun and heat that can only be escaped inside of underground malls and your thirst quenched with lime juice or a drink from Maccha House on a road named Orchard.

This part of the world, Singapore, Malacca and Kuala Lumpur, hold a unique beauty, each distinctly different from one another. I’m very fortunate to have spent several days taking in that beauty on a recent vacation. For this post I narrowed it down to the brilliant blending of nature and architecture seen along the way. For a glimpse into more of the vacation beyond just the sights go here.
