Kuala Lumpur

Memories of the capital of Malaysia

overcast 80 °F


On the way back from Bali I was able to stay a couple of days in Kuala Lumpur, better known to locals as KL. Don't know why but they shorten some places. Johor Bahru is known as JB. Anyway....

One of the places I loved to visit was the KL Tower. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kuala_Lumpur_Tower
It was close enough from the hotel I could just walk there. Incredible views and lots of fun. And of course, wherever you go, there are things to buy......found some yummy chocolate covered almonds. LOL
Next to the tower was an upside house. Everything, including the house was upside down. For a couple of dollars it was a lot of fun.

This city is a vibrant and busy place. The traffic is incredible. Glad that I could just use Uber and not have to deal with driving here. The airport is about an hour outside of the city. I didn't know that, and it makes for a more expensive place to visit when you have to travel that far.

There is a lot to do in this city. Most well known are the Twin Towers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petronas_Towers
It's amazing and I suggest a tour. While there I observed window washers on the opposite tower of where I was washing windows. I can only imagine how long it would take to make it around the whole place. A never-ending job. But what a view you would have everyday!


Batu Caves is another interesting place to visit. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batu_Caves
There was a Hindu wedding going on and I loved seeing the beautiful and colorful clothing. Climbing the 272 steps was worth it. And watching the monkeys at the top was fun. I loved seeing all the different cultures in KL.

The National Mosque and Islamic Museum was also interesting. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Mosque_of_Malaysia
In order to enter the mosque we had to wear head covering and robes.

There were so many food options in KL. Street market shopping, Hop on Hop of busses and so many more things to see that I must plan another trip to this city.
