48 hours in Kuala Lumpur

I arrived to KL airport in a brand new 380 plane at 5 in the morning. You can either take a Taxi or a train and then a taxi or local bus. The difference was not that much, and at that early time of the day after an 11 hour flight I just wanted to get to my hotel, so I opted for a taxi. I couldn’t help but notice how jungle like the whole scenery looked. I don’t know what I was expecting, I guess I should have imagined something like it, but I find it hard to put together the idea of a jungle and a big, developed city together.

I stayed at the Trader’s hotel right in front of the Petrona Towers. They are a truly magnificent piece of architecture. Too bad the tickets for the Bridge connecting the two towers were sold out (book way in advance!).

However, although the bridge is cool because it provides you with the opportunity of actually being in the towers, I found that there is a better view of the city from the Menara Tower. It is well worth the price difference to go all the way up to the open observation deck. Half the city seems to be under construction, mostly for modern tall buildings, it kind of makes me want to go back in about five years and see how it looks.

As pretty much any other big city in the world, there is an exotic China Town in the middle of KL, and interestingly enough, a beautiful Hindu temple in the middle of it. Not far away from China town is the National Museum of Malaysia and one of the entrances to the Lake gardens, a beautiful park that makes whole day trip on its own. Nestled in one of the corners of the park is the splendid Masjid Negara Mosque, open to the public when it is not prayer time.
