... standard gauge (1435 mm) tracks so it never gets delayed by KTM Komuter or KTM Intercity trains. However, this means that interoperability with the rest of Malaysia's narrow gauge 1000mm tracks will forever be impossible, meaning there can be no through running to major provincial cities like Ipoh or Seremban.
I alighted at Putrajaya (Malay for "Prince of Success") and was greeted with the news that the daily 11am guided tours leaving from the station only ...

Bukit Bintang is the touristic spot I went to to watch the match but it has some great cheap street food there as well as places to drink which are hard to come by in a predominantly Muslim country it's a decent place to hang out. We only spent a total of a fiver between us all day on a whole array of street food and fed up of ...
... anywhere in the hotel. At the zoo we had to cut it up outside - Dean had tried it before and loves it but the girls hadn't - their faces were a picture when they tasted it.
After work we made our way back to the shack to shower etc and pack our stuff for the trip early tomorrow morning to Malaka Zoo but we had to go and collect our laundry first. We got there at 6.00 and were surprised (and annoyed) that it was closed - ...
... a nice mid-range hotel in Chinatown called Swiss-Inn, which wouldn't break the bank but would provide is with a nice clean room, a hot shower (our first in nearly a month), a reliable Internet connection and a plentiful buffet breakfast.

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.
