The single room we stayed in could easily accomodate 3. The rooms are cleaned everyday. The staff are quite congenial. The room is on the 18th floor and the view is fabulous all times of the day. Monorail, KLM Kommuter trains, flyovers, cars ...Most importantly since it is centrally located, it was easy to visit most of the tourist attractions using public transport. Plus the shopping mall in lower floors can keep you happy just staying here :)

There might just about be as many retail shops as there are people ...
... town that sells beer (sale of alcohol is forbidden in many parts of Malaysia).
Next we moved on to our real destination, the island of Perhentian.

Nonetheless we arrived in one piece and were rewarded with the most stunning ...
... young Malaysian couple and it seemed to have made their evening which was really sweet.
After a brilliant night the only thing was for another lazy day. We took a walk around chinatown and grabbed some food but that was about it. As i've done most of the main sites I didn't feel I was missing out on anything. I just seem to feel at home in KL, it's such a vibrant, friendly city. Would recommend it to anyone!
... up three other people in a small room who I haven't even met. It was a reminder that there ain't going to be much privacy over the coming weeks.
Awoke at 9am and after breakfast I got myself together and in to the city. My first impression of KL is it's like most Asian cities; chaotic, polluted, buildings are massive and there are absolutely tons of mopeds. The locals seem to find wearing a jacket back to front shall protect them ...
... thought that someone had been shot/bombed.
Both mum and I agreed that the stairs weren't as bad as last time or we expected - a struggle yeah but nothing major. But I better have the best bum when I wake up in the morning.
Elena (from the Cameron Highlands day tour) had recommended yesterday that we go to the Traders Hotel's Skybar for amazing views of the towers. Dad didn't want to have anything to do with the heights so ...
