The first stop in our two stop journey, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Or KL as the locals say. We were spent 4 nights in KL, before continuing on to the Maldives. We decided to spend a few days here to acclimatize to the time-zone change, and the heat. It’s a balmy 30℃ all day, and maybe a few degrees cooler at night but the concrete jungle intensifies the heat and humidity. Pants and socks were useless as soon as we touched down in Malaysia.
Day 1 — Travel
After checking that the weather forecast was going to be good, we decided to visit the KL Tower. The KL Tower was the primary tourist attraction in Kuala Lumpur until the Petronas Towers were completed in 1996. KL Tower does still offer the highest attitude observation deck in Malaysia.
To keep the Tower relevant, they’ve added on other amenities to the grounds to attract visitors. We visited the mini zoo.
Night Market in Bukit Bintang.
You literally can smell this neighbourhood a mile away — Durian.
We ventured to the Pudu market to see the wet (fish & meat) and dry (veggies, fruits, and preservatives) markets. We’ve heard that lives animals go in one end, and butchered meats come out the other. The wet market required footwear other than flip flops.
This was just the first four days of our trip and I’ll have the other portions of the trips up soon; Maldives, and Malaysia 2.
