Fly AirAsia X: The airline of choice for screaming infants!

How I managed to get around four hours' sleep is beyond my …

Walking Tours of KL

A travel blog entry by raniaandlaura


Tuesday We got up at 630am to go to the Petronas towers to queue for tickets for Kez and Rania to go up to the sky deck viewing deck. We queued for just over an hour and they got tickets for one of the early sessions. They had a great time and even got on TV (sort of). I spent the time catching up on lots of blog writing. After that we went to Central market for a wander and then back to Chinatown to find some more bargains. There wasn't ...

One of the lady members came to our table with a box of chocolates and offered us one. She told us she was from Singapore but married to a German and had just come back from being in Germany over Christmas and the New Year.

... paying 2 for beer rather than 30 pence.

So with KL leaving me less than impressed. I immediately decided, I was going to leave in the few days. Heading into the Cameroon Highlands. Getting bus ticket in KL is an interesting experience and there is no logic about it. The bus station located near to my hostel. had four floors. Tickets are sold on the second floor, as you enter the office, touts will hassle you to buy tickets. Ignore them! Walk in ...

    The facilities provided for the price offered are good. Nice clean rooms with TV, AC. Shared bathroom can turn out to be more of advantage rather than a concern if you are in a group.

    Staff is not very friendly towards guests, and the inn is in the middle of renovation, we had to stay in an old and smelly room, with a common bath.
