Tune Hotel Kulim

It was a very leisurely day today. We relaxed in the room until noon and then we checked out heading to our next destination.
Before leaving the town of Kulim, I wanted to show my father around this little town. I have been here recently for a similar meeting but for my father, the last time he was here was at least 20 years ago.
This was surely a very interesting day for me. The day started in Kuala Lumpur and just the night before there was a heavy down pour of rain which had caused many areas in Kuala Lumpur to have some flash floods. That in itself delayed my journey.

The place was good, clean and worth the price. It is located next to the famous Landmark Mall which has a Giant Supermarket, Many eateries and a cinema theatre too. They are also currently renovating and soon would open up a Old Town White Coffee outlet right below the hotel. The Wifi is also fast and reliable.
