KL bound 

We spent most of today on as many forms of public transport as we could fit into a 12hr period. Mini bus, ferry, public bus, plane, taxi….. Arriving in KL at peak hour on a Wednesday evening is never a good idea, but is slightly better than a Friday!

We went out for sushi, and found a shopping centre with a theme park inside! Robin’s worst nightmare – shopping and noisy roller coasters combined! 

 Our Malay is rubbish and somehow we ended up in the wrong part of KL. Luckily though there was a bath & bodyworks, so Jemima could add to her supplies! 

We spent a day out on the hop on hop off bus – a great way to see the sights of such a big city, and much less tiring than catching the sky rail. Our previous visit to KL hadn’t allowed us much sight seeing due to local unrest and curfews. 

Robin wasnt happy with no food carts allowed!

Petronas Towers


The Petronas Towers are THE famous landmark of Kuala Lumpur. Everyone who visits KL wants to see them! We however didn’t bother as we had been up and done the whole tourist bit previously. It was still nice to visit KLCC Suria and sit out admiring the view of the gardens, while having a drink. 


Next stop after lunch was the National Mosque. Unfortunately a lot of the mosque is a no go area for non Muslims, so we contented ourselves visiting the exterior parts.
