Eurotrip 2024 – Zurich

This is my Eurotrip to 6 European cities which include London, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Zurich with Nuh Travel & Tour. The trip took 11 days & 8 Nights where we reside into 5 different Hotels.

From Titisee Lake in Germany we headed into Switzerland and our first tourist spot we visit is the Rhine Falls. Touted as the most powerful waterfalls in Europe.

We ended the day by spending a night at Hilton Garden Inn Zurich. The hotel with the best view from our room.

We checked out the next morning to ended our Eurotrip by visiting Mount Tiltis and City tour of Luzern.

Along the way to Mount Tiltis, the panoramic views of Engelberg are mesmerizing. Such a beautiful place.

We arrived at Mount Tiltis base and took a scenic cable car ride toward the top of the mountain. 

At 10,000 feet, the temperature on Mount Tiltis that time was one degree Celsius.  The coldest environment I have ever been in my life and it is the first time I experience a real snow.

The coldest part of Mount Tiltis was probably on a hanging bridge. With the wind blows really hard, it felt like negative Celsius.

Before we headed to Zurich Airport, we took our final city tour at Luzern and bought some souvenirs and Swiss chocolate.

My first ever trip to Europe has been memorable and ticked so many of my personal bucket list. We are so lucky that the weather has been really great. Cool with clear blue sky. Can’t wait to plan for another Eurotrip.

Mayor Hill Cycling

Bukit Tunku or fondly known by local cyclist as Mayor Hill is the destination to cycle in Kuala Lumpur. The 1.4km climb with around  10% gradient is a challenge that a cyclist should take.

The prize of conquering the climb is the beautiful view overseeing the Kuala Lumpur cityscape. Cycling around Bukit Tunku area also very pleasant under the cooling and serene jungle. There are also few more hills around this location that you can try to conquer.

Search for Bukit Tunku in RideWithGPS website if you wanna give a try.

Bangsaray, Pattaya

My recent visit to Bangsaray, Pattaya while attending World Paintball Championship 2019. Bangsaray is about 30 minutes or around 24km from Pattaya City. Bangsaray is like Teluk Cempedak or Cherating and Pattaya City is like Kuantan.

Bangsaray is a quiet place, the beach is the main attraction, as for Muslim, quite hard to find Halal food… the best place to get Halal food is at 7 Eleven.

I stayed at Costa Village Resort. The resort it self about 500 meter from the beach. To move around Bangsaray you can either rent a car, a bike, free bicycle offer by the hotel, taxi or just used Grab. Grab is easy and the waiting time is very short.. but the fare is expensive especially with our current exchange rate. Less than 2km the fare would be around RM28… and to go to Pattaya City the fare is a whopping RM95 one way… two way the price is nearly the price of my flight ticket to Pattaya.

I like to go again to Pattaya, but this time I want to stay at Pattaya City.
