After 2 months living in Vietnam we thought the best way to ease our transition back to frequent travelling was with a little luxury. We booked ourselves one night of indulgence at the AVANI Gold Coast Resort in Sepang, 45 minutes drive from KL airport. We took a prepaid taxi through the beautiful Malaysian countryside, world class highways lined with lush palm tree plantations and not a moped in sight!
After our bags were brought to our room and we had freshened up in the double-door en-suite bathroom we headed for the infinitely pool overlooking the Malaysian Strait of Malacca to drink in the splendor. We spent a couple of hours reading in the cabana area before taking a dip and a few obligatory photos of our feet!! The weather was a few degrees cooler than Vietnam which made all the difference. The other guests comprised a mix of every race and creed including Indian, Australian, Islamic and Chinese. Everyone was relaxed and very open to meeting their diverse peers.
