From 25th to 31th of October we made a city trip to Singapore, Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur.
In the morning we were going the airport, after check-in we sent the time until boarding at the Senator lounge at
pier east. Boarding for our flight Austrian 7 to Singapore was at gate A06. With a delay of 45 minutes we took off
at runway 16 for our 11 hour flight to Singapore. Unfortunately I made no pictures during the flight. In fact we
had 45 minutes delay, we landed on schedule the in the next morning at Singapore Changi at runway 02L. We
had an wonderful view onto Singapore at night during our approach to the airport. We were going to our hotel

After a short break in our hotel we continued our holidays with a walk through Singapore. From our Hotel to the business
district and the singapore river we had only some minutes to walk. The weather was also very good. Another highlight in
Singapore is the Sentosa island with a lot of parks and sights. We visited Mount Faber py cable car from Sentosa Island
With a marvelous view to downtown Singapore and the surrounding sea. This was my second visit at Singapore, but the
City show allways some new things.

At the evening we returned to Singapore. This time our aircraft was an Boeing 777-212(ER) 9V-SQF for flight Singapore 163.
In fact of the high temperatur and air humidity it was worth makeing the day trip to Jakarta.


We made another day trip to Kuala Lumpur at the 29th of October. This was also my second visit at malaysian capital.
But there were a lot of new things and sights to see. We left Singapore Changi at 8:30am and arrived at Kuala Lumpur
International aprox. 35 minutes later. This time we booked a first class flight, because the price was only 30 Euros more
than into economy class. The service was very good for this short hop.

After arrival at Kuala Lumpur airport we took the airport express train into the city of Kuala Lumpur. First stop during our
day trip was at Menara Kuala Lumpur - a 1381ft. hight telecommunications tower. On top of the tower we had a very good
view over Kuala Lumpur. After Menara Kuala Lumpur we continued to the Petronas Tower - the landmark of Kuala Lumpur.
Unfortunately we got no tickets for the observation deck. In the afternoon we also visited the palace of the king with
an big garden in front of the building.
