We took a really short flight (35 minutes) from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur for 2 nights before we head off to Phuket! The flight was probably the quickest i have ever been on. I wouldn’t mind if every flight was like that please!
Once we arrived we used their train network to get to the city. It wasn’t the best network we’ve used so far and we really struggled with paying for the tickets but we persevered and did it in the end. We eventually made it to our hotel which was in Little India! We checked in and relaxed for a bit then decided as we still had some of the evening left to go and find the Petronas Towers! It’s literally the only thing we wanted to see here and it was very easy to find! Obviously it is one of the most popular things to see and do in Kuala Lumpur.
They are HUGE! So much bigger than i expected and they really stand out in the city. It was really good seeing them in real life, the only problem was the people there trying to sell the tourists selfie sticks etc. I know you get that at most attractions but we did see a few people trying to ‘pretend to drop their purse’ and we have seen before whilst you check your own purse, they grab it and steal it from you!!
I had done some research and wanted to find out the best place to go for a drink and a view of the towers. This turned out to be The Sky at in the Traders Hotel. We found our way there through the park and headed up to the 33rd floor. It was really busy and just our luck they were having a private party in most of the bar so we had to sit in rubbish seats. Until finally window seats became free and i don’t think i’ve ever moved as quick! The view was unreal, we are so lucky! We got to see the sun set behind the towers giving us the best view in the day and night time!
Seeing the towers was pretty much the only thing we had in mind for this stop, however we had heard about the Batu Caves. So our last day we used the train to get to the caves! The weather was so so hot 36 degrees and the caves have 272 steps to climb up to the top! I had made the mistake of wearing shorts (like a lot of women) so they provided us with sarongs to wrap around us. The walk up the steps was so hard in the heat but totally worthwhile.
There was also monkeys running around the steps giving us extra entertainment! They even unscrewed the lids of bottles of drink. They are so clever!
Right near our hotel in little India they had a bazaar that was open everyday. We walked through it and saw so many weird and wonderful things and it was so so cheap!
