Disneyland in Malaysia?

Well, that was what strong rumours said UEM (United Engineers Malaysia), a Malaysian Government connect listed company, was trying to set up in its new township of Bandar Nusajaya in Johore, just across the Straits from Singapore. The rumours were never denied. In fact, UEM talked openly about it, and even travelled to Japan to meet with officials of Oriental Land, operator and licensee of Disney's Japan theme parks. Even though Disney denied outright it had any intention to set up Disneyland in Malaysia, UEM continued to talk about it. That was back in mid 2006. Looks like there is no more talk of it happening anymore.

So it looks like if any Malaysians wish to visit Disneyland, they will have to travel oversea. The largest Disney resort, in fact the world's largest vacation resort, is the Walt Disney World Resort, and that is located in Florida in the southeastern region of the United States of America. But for Malaysians, it will almost be like home as Florida has a sub-tropical climate mainly, with its south having a tropical climate. Florida has lots of tourist attractions and in fact a large part of its economy is derived from tourism. If you go to Florida, you will never be at a loss as to what to do. As for accommodation, you should check out Florida vacation rentals.

If themed parks are what you are going for, Orlando is the place. That is where Walt Disney World Resort with Epcot, Disney-MGM Studios and Universal Studios plus many other amusement parks are located. Epcot is one place where both children and adults will enjoy a glimpse into space and the future. Mission Space is a simulated space mission which uses a centrifuge to simulate the effects of lift-off from earth followed by the sensation of weightlessness in outer space. Sounds like fun? Then get your accommodation from Orlando vacation rentals.

Itching for a cruise to the Caribbeans? Think of Miami. That is where Miami Harbor, the world's largest harbor for cruise ships able to accommodate the largest cruise ship is located. Miami Beach is actually a separate city from Miami. Malaysian architects interested in Art Deco, Streamline Moderne, and Nautical Moderne architecture should go to South Beach in Miami Beach where it was first introduced in the 1930s. The popular TV show, Miami Vice, also brought world attention to Miami Beach. If nightlife and restaurants interest you, South Beach has lots of it. And the beach attracts photo shots like bees to honey. On your visit to South Beach, you will likely see beautiful models posing for photographers. And even though it is a public beach, you will see nude sunbathing, which may offend some Malaysians.

If you are planning to pay a visit to Miami Beach, book your accommodation at Miami Beach vacation rentals
