Where I stayed
We got up early the next day to take a look around the city. We headed down for our all you can eat, all day breakfast. We were pointed in the direction of the toaster and a jar of peanut butter, good thing we both like peanut butter!
Kuala Lumpur is a modern, bustling city. It's a modern Asian city of gleaming skyscrapers, but it retains much of the local colour and cultures. It has plenty of colonial buildings in its center, a vibrant Chinatown with street vendors and night markets, and a bustling little India.
We headed for KL tower, the 4th largest communications tower in the world
Once back at sea level we decided to head to yet another china town for something to eat where we sampled some of the local delicious foods! After lunch we carried on on foot walking round the city exploring the many strange shops and markets that KL has to offer.
On day 2 we headed to The Petronas Twin Towers which are the world's tallest twin buildings. They were the world's tallest buildings from 1998 to 2004. Again it was an early start as we had to be at the towers early to be able to get a ticket up to the bridge on the 41st floor that joins the two towers. Tickets sell out by 9.30 most days and when we arrived at 9.37 we managed to get 2 of the remaining tickets for that day. The bridge is on the 41st floor which is not even half way up the towers. I have to say I felt very unsafe crossing the glass bridge 41 floors up. The views again were spectacular but you almost feel like you are walking on air whilst crossing and could drop at any point, still it is a must!
After the towers we went to Little India for lunch where again we ate from the local stalls and just looked round the markets.
That night we get into bed after another great days sight seeing
Tomorrow we head for Singapore which is the final leg of our Asia trip. Of all the places in Asia we have been, we wish we had more time in Malaysia as there is so much to see and we have spent so little time. Borneo looks amazing as does much of Malaysia but that will have to be for another trip...
