... towers in the world at 450mtrs high. Next stop was the Mandarin Oriental to have a meal, cocktail and watch the fountains in front of the towers.
Day two, hop on hop off bus. Kuala Lumpur is not the best city in the world for the bus tour due to the volume of traffic. It can take several hours to complete the circuit. However, if you are only in a city for a short time, it is the easiest way to see most of the sights. On ...
... a million devotees made the pilgrimage from KL to the caves about 13km away. It is a festival that celebrates faith, endurance and penance. We are not going to follow in the steps of the faithful and walk, rather we are catching the train that conveniently stops just outside the entrance. We do however have to walk up the 272 steps to reach temple cave as it is known. On arrival we see an enormous statue of the monkey god, and not too long after we see the first of the monkeys ...
... burning plastic and sewage. More of the delicious smells of food, and clove cigarettes. English is spoken well broadly in the community, and it is a hell of a lot hotter and more muggy. The last two days have been at 94% humidity for most of the day. Admittedly it is winter in India, but I can only pass on the experience as I find it. Another thing or two about Kuala Lumpur, or Koala Lumps as I like to say. The infrastructure such as the roads, rail and ...
... with him and a few hours later a flight to France was booked. So tonight I'm off to Paris and tomorrow morning switching flight to go down to Toulouse and train to Foix. The jobs seems to include some forest and garden work, also some renovating and building. Mostly just a helping hand. But I'm excited.

TravelPod Member ReviewsSilka Maytower Hotel & Serviced Residences Kuala Lumpur
I know there are a lot of mixed reviews, but we went against all odds and thought we'd give this place the benefit of the doubt. For the amount you pay per night at this hotel, you're better off taking your money somewhere else. It's no where near what you should get for what you pay. No free wi-fi, which most hotels have now for that price. the breakfast buffet made us both sick, their pool was out of order, and the general up keep is horrible. most of the switches in our room did not work' our safe broke once, and that whole warning of cockroach and pest control completely threw us off. The people in the room next to ours decided to be super noisy and party in their room at 2:00am. When we called the front desk to issue s noise complaint, they thought we wanted a wake up call.
The service is horrible, and this was our biggest downfall of our entire honeymoon. I would not recommend this to anybody. Stay somewhere else.
