Travel Blogs from Kuala Lumpur
This is another catch up entry, chronicling a trip to Kuala Lumpur. I visited another friend from Master's, he's probably the most successful of all of us and he's not even working in GIS! One day I'll learn how to be like him...

TravelPod Member ReviewsApple Hotel Kuala Lumpur
beautiful hotel, purple paint, nice lobby. quirky layout, bit of a rabbit warren. room was very cramped, but nicely furnished. basically like living in a closet. but the bathroom was strangely spacious. easy to walk from there to everything in central KL.
