Kuala Lumpur & Melaka

MALAYSIA | Saturday, 8 December 2007 | Views [606] | Comments [1]

After our experiences in Georgetown we were eager to get to a major city, Kuala Lumpur was only a few hours away so we headed there.

The Petronas Twin Towers are quite an amazing sight and bloody difficult to photograph!! We read that you can walk across the skybridge for free so we headed there early one morning and queued for the tickets. It was a bit like a fast pass telling is what time we had to go back. We spent a while in the mall underneath (crazily posh!!) and then walked across the sky bridge which was quite cool, we weren't really that high up but we got a good view of the city. The towers actually look their best at night when they are uplit, though typically at that time I didn't have my camera with me.

While we were Kuala Lumpur we kept coming across funny little Chinese Christmas shops that sold all kinds of random things, we ended up buying some dodgily translated chritmas cards.

Our last stop in Malaysia was Melaka which was a nice, pretty place with a lot of history.

We didn't spend a huge amount of time in Malaysia, we had previously wanted to see some of the islands which apparently are amazing but unfortunately during rainy season a lot of the ferries don't run and there's obviously the chance of bad weather!!! ah well maybe another time!
