Adventure before dementia

Kuala Lumpur

MALAYSIA | Friday, 3 March 2017 | Views [247] | Comments [1]

Fabulous city, very modern architecture and transport contrasting with areas of traditional buildings and cultures. Food heaven everywhere!! A fusion of Chinese, Indian and Malay. First full day we had curry and rice for breakfast, lunch and tea!! We have been all over the city, up the Petronas twin towers, to freedom square, Chinatown, little India, bukit bentang and walked the botanic gardens. It is really difficult to get around as a pedestrian as there are huge roads and no footpaths or road crossings so once you have explored one area you have to get the train, monorail or bus to the next area. This took a bit of getting used to because we usually walk everywhere. Every journey involves at least a few mega shopping malls as the stations are often deep inside the malls. When I say mega malls I mean 6 Trafford Centres on top of each other and there a number of these in the city which you can't avoid!! An amazing experience of a rapidly developing Asian city. The weather is very hot and humid but bearable as it has been fairly overcast. It is a fairly conservative country so it is inappropriate to show much flesh, hence the long pants and tops, even though it is 30C! Phew! Our hotel is in little India next to the mosque so we have a very melodic call to prayer at 6am in the morning.
