Travel Blogs from Kuala Lumpur

The trashiest city in Asia

A travel blog entry by lionelrishi


When we arrived at our newest digs on the border between NE Chinatown and the business district, my senses were immediately taken aback, and this wasn't in a good way.

As we walked the 5 minutes from where the airport shuttle dropped us off on Jalan Tun Perak to Serai Inn on Jalan Hang Leiku, my ears were deafened by the constant traffic …

Seit Beginn unserer Reise im August wache ich fast jeden Morgen auf mit einem freudig-aufgeregten Kribbeln im Bauch und frischer Neugier in Kopf und Herz: Was mag dieser neue Tag wohl bereithalten? Vielleicht gelingt es mir ja tatsächlich, diese wunderbare Neugier und Offenheit auch ein Stück weit mit in das heimatliche …

but it wasn't too bad. First day we dumped our bags then headed to the Petronas Towers. We found we were too late to get tickets to go up it that day and it was …

Kuala Lumpur with only 3 hours sleep

A travel blog entry by footloose_steve


So far, our method of pointing at the brightest food without any idea what it is has been successful. Who would have thought a lamb pancake could be so good. We went out for just a couple of drinks on the first night before meeting the over-bearingly friendly Apu. I was convinced he was going to mug me.

A visit to the Petronas Towers was …

Back to real backpacking

A travel blog entry by sharor


We left Singapore early Wednesday morning for a bus to Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia.It was the start again of long distance buses-we were used to having our own motor in New Zeland and Oz so it brought back a lot of memories for our crazy bus journies in South
America. At least this bus journey was a timid re-introduction to bus …

    The hotel is located in a quiet part of Chinatown and only a 10 min walk to the centre of KL.

    We arrived at the door of the hotel at 10:25pm, just before the reception officially turns in for the night (if you have booked, but end up coming after this time, they tell me that the house keeper will wait, until you arrive)

    The man at reception is very bubbly and quite informative. He immediately gave us a brief run down on how the place is arranged and what and where the facilities are.

    We were on the 2nd floor (same as the reception) so we only have one shower/toilet on our floor but we are free to use the rest on other floors. I duly did this and found the toilet to be very clean, although the flush was fitted back to front!

    I poked my head into the shower rooms (of course they were all empty!) and found them to be clean and modern.

    When I got back downstairs the receptionist gave us a map of the city with some useful tourist info and a metro map included, he then showed us to our room - a small but neat double bed room with some functional drawers, the fresh linen was fairly new and very clean, only downside is that as this is a converted office the walls are paper thin so might not suit a light sleeper!

    PS - Breakfast was included in the price of 40Rms per person and it's served in the roof garden!
