Malaysia: Shopping, Turtle time, and Great food!!

Upon arriving in Kuala Lumpur we could tell this modern mega city was different than most of the Asia we had seen. From excellent subway and monorail to the countless modern malls and skyscrapers, KL has a distinct feel of the Western world(with a definite Asian twist). We stayed right in the heart of the shopping district, which proved convenient …

Happy new lunar year

... their routine, and then the star of the show took centre stage. This guy performed an acrobatic dragon dance. We had never heard of it and couldn't believe it when it jumped up on to those raised blocks. Hope you enjoy the videos. The heat was intense just standing there watching the show, how those guys performed for so long in those costumes we have no idea. At the end of the dance the dragons gave out gifts of oranges and chocolate money to all the children, but ...

... day when Joe managed to get a direct hit to my head - fortunately it was only a piece of carrot! !

Once we have fed them Harith runs through what we will do that afternoon and then we have a two hour break between 12.00 and 2.00 - it really is too hot to do anything during that time. We usually go back to the chalet (or the shack as the young ones call it) for a quick sandwich (hoping the mice/rats hadn't eaten all the bread)!! Then up the road to ...

Visa Run

A travel blog entry by peteindira


... br> So, for now, we are thinking about going somewhere where the food is good and local culture is thriving. Returning to Indonesia is still on the table but it is now competing with Vietnam and Malaysia... and considering the flights to Vietnam start as low as $40, Indonesia may just have to wait.

Tomorrow we're meeting up with my buddy Veera who is a KL native for some exploring and touristy stuff before making a decision.

    Great location, right next to the monorail and shopping. Decent hotel but if they want to call themselves 5* then they really need to update the rooms. They felt tired and dated.

    Comments can be misleading


    After having booked the hotel through our travel agent I found this site and was worried by the comments I saw. I thought that we had made a big mistake!! Thankfully I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the hotel.

    Nice stay


    Stayed 2 nights, upgraded by paying RMB30 more for Deluxe. Reception was very friendly and helpful. Room was a good size and nice except a little drafty from air-con vent. High speed internet worked well. Hotel is in a convenient location, lots of shopping just around the corner. Breakfast was OK. Special offer rate for Deluxe displayed at hotel counter can only be obtained if booked through a travel agent, was refused this lower rate when I requested for the upgrade to Deluxe.

    Not happy JAN!


    Word of advice: Never go by the recommendations of your travel agent and do your research first! We weren't looking for a flashy hotel as we're a young couple and was just visiting KL to do some major shopping but given that the hotel has 4 star rating, you would presume that it would be a fairly decent hotel...BOY WAS I WRONG! How it managed to get a 4 star rating is beyond me.

    Pas cher


    - Chambre : Les chambres sont relativement grandes, mais vides. Elles donnent soit sur la rue (bruyante) soit sur le système d'air conditionné du parking (très bruyant). Le lit est simple, la moquette fatiguée.

    - Salle de bain: simple et propre

    - Petit-déjeuner: simple mais pas délicieux.

    - Staff: pro et aimable... par contre accrochez-vous pour communiquer en anglais....

    Hôtel bon marché, mais dans tous les cas pas un quatre étoiles comme indiqué à l'entrée.... idéal juste pour dormir.

    Cheap, not cheerful


    As a frequent traveller in SE Asia, I might be spoiled, but I found the Melia less than exciting. Service is slow and unprofessional, albeit friendly. The poolside is useless. No service - you have to phone reception to get towels and room service to get drinks and snacks. And it's overlooked by lots of buildings and largely in the shade. As a business traveller, having a nice pool for those rare few moments is a must for me. The standard rooms can be very dark, and for about £20 extra it's definitely worth upgrading to an exec room. Although there are no extras: no exec lounge or special service, internet in rooms doesn't really work etc. But getting away from the dingy downstairs is worth it (and at £50 it's good value). Breakfast is so-so, coffee appaling.

    Good Value


    Good hotel in a good location. Situated opposite Times Square shopping mall and right beside Imbi station on the Monorail and only a few stops along from KL Sentral station where the Airport train arrives/departs from. Within easy walking distance (about 7-8 mins) of the BB Plaza shopping complex (a massive mall with just about everything over many floors, connected to two major department stores and ALL aircondintioned! Also Ten Square, another up market mall on the other side of the road from BB Plaza.



    We stayed at the melia during our 5 day break in KL.
