While on the Orient Express, we rode through the country of Malaysia. We went through Malaysia's capital, Kuala Lumpur, then on to a town called Butterworth. We were able to get off here and take a ferry over to the island of Penang. We rode a trishaw through the town of Georgetown and it was great fun! Malaysia looks a but like Bali with its rice fields. It also is known for its palm plantations (they make palm oil) and rubber tree plantations.
