Malaysia, In Another Point Of View, From A Helicopter

I read an interesting article about Malaysia in the Yahoo News by SZA LES MO and it's worth sharing.

It mentioned that tourists can now enjoy a scenic bird's eye view of Malaysia by a helicopter tour package and would get to see "the magnificent architectural wonders, historical landmarks, cities, buildings, villages and plantations" in Malaysia from way above there in the sky.

The report says:

"Six travel agencies will be offering the high-end tour service initially under the 1Malaysia Helicopter Tour Packages which were launched by Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen at the Skypark Business Aviation Centre, Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport."

"The six travel agencies involved in the tour packages include Shajasa Travels & Tour Sdn Bhd, Elite Luxury Vacations (M) Sdn Bhd, Langkawi Helicopter Xtours and Kota Kinabalu Aerial Tour."

"The tours range from 15, 30 to 60 minutes and priced from RM1,250 to RM4,950, with the helicopters able to seat three to six people," she added.

Meaning to Travel

Olive, my friend, goes back and forth to Malaysia due to the nature of her work. However, she does not have the luxury of time to go around the beautiful country, she says. She stays in Kuala Lumpur and keeps an image of the Petronas Towers in her cellphone.

After my trip to Malaysia, she saw my photos and started sharing that she has not tried roaming around. I said she should not waste this rare opportunity. There must be a way somehow.

Many have been called, but few are chosen, I jokingly thought. We can all go to the same place but not see the same things for it is how we look at things that makes the difference. It is the experience that goes with the travel that makes the travel meaningful.

From last I heard, she went to Malaysia during the holidays with her husband. Now she knows how to put meaning to her travel.
