The BOH tea plantation was quite impressive as they processed the tea leaves using machinery from the 1920s when the factory was setup. Again the tour guide for the actual tea plantation was also in a hurry as we'd arrived before the actual opening hours, so a tour that would normally take 20 minutes took her 4
The bus journey down to KL wasn't very pleasant as we whizzed round sharp, steep mountain bends for an hour making Julia quite sick and she almost resorted to taking a nausea pill! But she pulled through and we made it to KL without incident! In KL though the bus broke down in the fast lane at a set of traffic lights and so we could either get out and push, or try and salvage our bags whilst dodging cars and buses. Then it was a short hike to our room at the China Town 2, where no one gets a room with a view, let alone a window. That evening we headed out to KLCC for dinner, window shopping and a view of the Petronas Towers, once the highest buildings in the world, now 2nd highest to the one in China. They were pretty tall! Returned back to China Town and had a drink at the Reggae Bar before turning in.
