Our guide and driver, Edward, arrived on time and provided us with interesting knowledge about the city and country’s history and culture. An unexpected treat was seeing the motorcade of the king’s daughter leaving the palace. We were taken to various spots wherein we were able to buy Malaysian souvenirs such as chocolates, coffee, and batik goods.
