A week ago I went for my second visit to Yong Peng, Malaysia and I loved every minute of it. It’s a neat little town that’s easy to access from bus routes into Malaysia from Singapore. A good friend of mine is from this town and invited me to visit last year. I went for a weekend and it turned out to be a great escape from the hustle of the city. There’s a big palm plantation, lots of nature, and some of the best laksa around. I grew up in a suburb of Boston, MA in USA and really enjoy visiting the equivalents in other countries. I like the pace of life in these towns, and the fresh air and friendly smiles I encounter along the way.
