Today we had a free day, so after another leisurely start we decided to walk down to the centre along the river bank walk and
get a boat to tour the canals of the city.
We arrived early before they had opened, so we went around the Maritime Museum nearby which is inside a
replica of the Flora de Lamar a Portuguese Sailing Ship.
Once we'd being around the ship it was time to board boat for a relaxing river cruise passing the old canal side houses and
viewing the modern street art adorned all over the houses and even hotels along the river bank.
Once back we went up another tower ! The Taming Sari Tower, with it's rotating viewing platform,
(a bit like a polo mint revolving around a flag pole!).
It actually ascended fast up to 110m (350ft) and also revolving at the same time, it then continued for a couple of more revolutions before descending again.
We got some good views of the city and also spotted a 50m outdoor pool close by :-)
As soon as we got down we found the pool and that it opened in the afternoon, so we decided to go for swim after lunch.
We got there to find only 2 other people in the pool, who soon got out and left the pool to ourselves !
After swimming for nearly an hour, walking around all day in the 30c heat we crashed out back at the hotel,
Before going out to the night street market and a few beers to finish off a great day and our last night in Malaysia.
