    Let's Go Visit the Leaning Tower of Malaysia!

    Let's go visit the Leaning Tower of Malaysia! The Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan is one of the famous landmarks in Perak, and I would like to say that, in the whole of Malaysia as well. It is well known in Malaysia because of its leaning character, which is similar to the world famous Tower of Pisa in Italy. It takes about a 2.5 - 3 hour drive from Selangor.

  • Main Street Station

    Main Street Station

    Richmond is full of different architectural styles. Quite often you’ll find a historical building directly next to a brand new building, or in the case of Main Street Station you’ll notice that the highway has actually been built around the building! According to www.richmondgov.com, the building was originally built in 1901, and was for the next 74 years a “bustling transportation hub.” However, due to a decrease in passenger rail service, it was closed in 1975. The building remained closed for the next 28 years, and was re-opened in 2003 after years of renovation, and now has limited train service to downtown Richmond.
