Suvarnabhumi Bangkok Airport During Transit




Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok serves as a hub for numerous connecting flights. Numerous flights make a stop there, and transit passengers must wait a few hours at the airport. I've been there numerous times.

Individuals spend their time there in a variety of ways. Some go shopping or simply window shop, while others take a nap on one of the couches. Some passengers choose to rest in business class lounges, while others prefer to simply sit and browse the web or their social media apps. I've witnessed all of these things and occasionally record them on video.

I transited through Suvarnabhumi a few times in 2019, prior to the outbreak of COVID-19. I shot some videos during my stopover. As a result, I'm uploading a few of these to the YouTube Channel.

Watch This Video Before You Go To Puteri Waterfalls, Tangkak, Johor, Malaysia

Puteri Waterfall video link

Puteri Waterfalls is located in Tangkak, Johor, Malaysia, within the Taman Negara Gunung Ledang Recreational Forest. Taman Hutan Lagenda, the park's main entrance, is located in the Tangkak region, near the town of Sagil. The resort is located near Melaka. It's a wonderful recreational area where you may camp, hike to Gunung Ledang's top, or simply relax on the waterfall's ledges.

Puteri Falls is devoted to this renowned Princess's memory.

It covers an area of roughly 21271 acres and is located on the Muar-Melaka boundary. The top of the mountain is 4186 feet above sea level. It has an intact stretch of tropical rainforest and acts as a critical water catchment region for both Johor and Melaka.

Due to its closeness to Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, as well as the fact that it is the highest peak in the state of Johor, it is one of Malaysia's most popular and climbed mountains.

Due to the pandemic, the resort's most popular path has been closed. However, a short twenty-minute hike will take you to Putri Waterfalls (with a flow of around 60 m). A concrete walkway connects the walkway to the waterfall. The establishment attracts a considerable clientele, especially on weekends.

In the bottom half of the waterfall, amid an imposing tropical forest, there are a number of swimming pools and a lovely recreational space for picnics and bathing.

That is where the bulk of non-summit climbers go to unwind, have a picnic, and then return.

The forest is a biodiversity hotspot that supports a diverse array of species and is essential for upstream water management and, hence, climate change mitigation.

Numerous stories surround the mountain, including ones about a fabled princess and the legendary warrior Hang Tuah.

Several pertinent remarks and Q&As:

In the indigenous language, a waterfall is referred to as air terjun.

There is hiking available there.

What are the best things to do in Malacca?

Due to its proximity to Malacca, this site can be considered as an excellent Malacca site too and is suitable for a day excursion. Melaka also has a plethora of additional attractions.

If you're seeking locations to visit in Melaka or wondering what to see in Melaka, you've come to the right spot. Of course, you may stay in the city and visit the Melaka River and other sections of Melaka's historical district. However, if you are a nature lover, then Puteri Waterfall is a must-see: Melaka's most beautiful spot in terms of a natural recreational place.

If you're planning a road trip across Malaysia and are looking for places to visit, try the Melaka day tour and Gunung Ledang Recreational Forest. If you are a nature enthusiast, this is one of the greatest Malacca locations to visit. This Malacca day tour is feasible regardless of whether you are traveling from Kuala Lumpur or Singapore to Melaka.

For anyone interested in Melaka history or Malacca tourism, the tales surrounding the Puteri Waterfall are fascinating.

Malacca Tour by car - Limbongan to Melaka Raya

Car DashCam Video of Malacca - Limbongan to Melaka Raya




I took a video while driving on Jalan Limbongan until the historical area of Malacca. This road is on the reclaimed land. It was a sea until about ten years ago. Now lots of new shops, hotels, and places tourist attractions are being built.

As you drive you'd see places that have now become a kind of landmarks. Starbucks Limbongan and McDonald are right at the place where I switch on the camera.

Kota Laksamana and Shahbundar


Moving further I pass by the area of Kota Laksamana and Shahbundar. You can see Marvelux Hotel and Swan Garden Hotel there. Swan Garden Hotel is now partly occupied by the Bank of China. Popular Chinese restaurant Bei Zhan is also visible as you cross the traffic signal.

Malacca International Ferry Terminal View


As you drive further and cross over the bridge of the river Malacca, you can see the Malacca International Ferry Terminal. It's the isthmus of the river Malacca as it flows into the Straits of Malacca.

As soon as you cross the bridge, you can see tall Holiday Inn hotel and Mahkota Hotel. You can also see the Mahkota Medical Center, where a lot of Indonesian patients come for treatment.

Taman Melaka Raya

Then starts the Taman Melaka Raya. After crossing the condominium, Malacca Club you can see a big building with the name Hatten Place. Doubletree by Hilton is in the Hattens Place.

Then, as you pass through the Taman Melaka Raya's commercial area, you'd see many bank branches. These include RHB Bank, Hong Leong Bank, and Public Bank. CIMB Bank is also on this road but nearer to its another end. Lots of shops and some wellness and Thai massage centers are located here.

Mahkota Parade and Mahkota Medical Center

We then drive to the back side of Mahkota Parade to go to its front and as soon as you come out of Plaza Mahkota, you can see the viewing tower known as Menara Taming Sari. You can buy tickets to go up to Menara Taming Sari to have a birds-eye view of Malacca.

Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall

Next, you'd cross Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall shopping center, Imperial Heritage Hotel, Hotel Equatorial, Melaka High School and then reach the historical part of Melaka.

Clock Tower, Stadthuys and Christ Church

You would be crossing through red buildings. There you can see Clock Tower, Queen Victoria Fountain, Stadthuys, Christ Church, and Melaka Zero Mile signage. Famous Jonker Walk is on right from here but we don't drive there today. Further up is the Quayside Hotel and a replica of the ship, Flor de la Mar, which belonged to Portuguese invader Alphonso de Albuquerque.

That's all in this video. We then enter the same road we drove earlier to return back to the point from where we started.

Usually, visitors don't go to some areas in the video. So if you visit Malacca but missed some places, just watch this video. Or if you are planning to visit Malacca, do watch this before you visit. It will help you decide where to go and what to do in Malacca.

The story behind the Rambler Diary

My blog is not niche-specific; instead, I write about my daily observations. I publish blogs under a variety of diverse titles, themes, specialties, and general topics. However, I was dissatisfied with the names I gave my blogs, as they are narrow and particular. My observations about life were numerous. Theme and niche blogs pushed me to write only about specialized subjects. As a result, I considered different names and this one came up and it began. It enables me to write about whatever I choose. Most of the time, it's about the places I visit, the things I see, the things I observe, and the things I write about. Why? Because such insights may be beneficial to others who read this blog article. Subscribe to this blog and its related YouTube channel. Subscribe RamblersDiary
