It was my first drone-flight that I experienced in Malaysia. I could fly freely over the coast undisturbed and enjoy this moment. The Berjaya resort and the Langkawi island looked like paradise from this perspective and as I dream more about this place – who knows, maybe the time will come to return and take some new photos!

Can you imagine waking up every morning and enjoying this view? The stay in Berjaya Langkawi Resort passed by very quickly. Almost every year that we make our return home, we are reminded of our stay and we miss it dearly. But – we never really know, it may be that one day we take this route again and enjoy this destination.
The entire stay in Berjaya Resort in Langkawi, Malaysia was truly another experience for us. This is a photo of… a bathroom in one of the premiere chalets on the water in Berjaya Resort. I already showed you a balcony from which you also see this jacuzzi, overlooking the surrounding clean and turquoise seawater. Surprise, surprise – we didn’t leave our residence very often…
No doubt when in Kuala Lumpur, I wanted to capture the typical skyline with The Petronas Towers during blue hour and by turning around 180° degrees – I could just enjoy this beautiful sunset. This photo was taken from one of the balconies of The Sail Building, where we stayed during our visit to Kuala Lumpur. The upper floor was a pure paradise for us – external swimming pools, a gym area and an almost 360° degree view on the cityscape.
Picturing this scene for a moment, I formed an interesting concept – I believe that the closer we are to the equator, the more the surrounding colours of nature become evident. The Berjaya Resort was exceptional – in the middle of a jungle and still on the coast, it offered many diverse ways of “living”. On a particular occasion, after dinner at a restaurant, I took my camera out to eternalize this experience of arriving home “on the water” and as you see, it was truly mesmerising.
There are 99 Islands that have created a region called “Langkawi”. It’s one of the biggest tourist destinations in Malaysia, though it is still undiscovered in comparison to Phuket, the capital of Thailand which is nearby. The “Langkawi Island Resort” was located partly on the coast and partly in the rainforest. We could in effect, leave our balcony on the turquoise water, close the door to our house and still be in the middle of the jungle with all its wild-life!
In the Setia Sky Towers, where we rented our flat were two kinds of swimming pools. First, on the rooftop of garages, good for a middle-day swim. Second infinity pool on the last floor of the building. There we often spent our evenings just looking on the sun setting in Kuala Lumpur and later on the colorful lights of the city and Petronas Towers. Observing how television Tower is changing its color we were thinking that we are very lucky to be here.
During our trip to Asia we were lucky enough to spend a couple of days in the city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The capital of the country has a lot to offer, but the view from the balcony of the apartment we stayed in, was my favourite by far. Thanks to the small city village of Kampung Baru we had an unspoiled view of the impressive Skyline of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, which looked different every time we looked at it.
During our stay in the fantastic Berjaya Langkawi Resort in Pulau Langkawi, Malaysia I was finally able to take my latest technical gadget for a test-drive: My DJI Phantom 4 drone, which enables me to take pictures from a bird’s-eye view. The picture of the sapphire blue sea and the lush forest, together with the small wooden chalets of the resort prove that I couldn’t have picked a more suitable place – this coastal stretch deserves to be captured from above in all its beauty.
The limestone caves, Batu Caves, are located to the North of the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur. The Temple Cave is not only home to a number of different Hindu shrines, but is also the largest cave of the system with a ceiling height of up to 100 metres. The pictures shows one of those incredibly impressive Hindu altars, which is located in the very depth of the cave.
