Another picture from the Bangkok. The local people do almost everything on water - here is a "supermarket".


Kuala Lumpur - the capital of Malaysia. A modern city full of palms and skyscrapers


Kuala Lumpur - a lot of glass has been consumed during the construction


The most beautiful mosque of Kuala Lumpur can be found at the confluence of two rivers. Hence the malay name of the town, which means in English a "dirty river".


The very modern National Mosque of Malaysia. It is open for public, but both men and women have to wear an appropriate dress inside the mosque.


The Independence Square - the downtown of Kuala Lumpur. From its beautiful gardens the most famous city's dominants can be seen - the old colonial architecture, the TV tower (4th tallest building in the world) and the "little" Petronas Towers (the world's tallest skyscraper).


This picture was taken from the top of the TV tower


Beautiful modern architecture of Kuala Lumpur.

Lianas are widespread in the tropical rainforests of Malaysia


The trees in this rainforest belong among the biggest in the world
