We arrived mid-evening, and the next morning decided to visit the Petronas Towers and walk around the city. The first thing we noticed was that Kuala Lumpur is brutally hot and humid!
Kuala Lumpur is probably most famous for the Petronas Towers, the tallest twin-towers in the world, joined by a sky-bridge on the 45th floor. We made our way from our hotel over to the famous towers. Until recently, you could go up to the top for free, but daily tickets were limited and first-come first-served, so they usually 'sold out' early. It turns out they now charge for the experience, and tickets still sell out early! By the time we arrived, the only trip up in the towers left was not until 8pm, so we decided to bag it. But we did wander around outside and got a few shots:
We made our way back to the hotel in the rain (via taxi) and decided to take advantage of the Hilton's free happy hour which went from 5-7:30 (if you get enough Hilton points, they upgrade your room, give you free breakfast and free happy hour). The happy hour was on the top floor, which had a great view of the Petronas Tower:
So the verdict on KL? Well, our experience was limited, and I am confident there's a lot of great stuff to see here that we didn't get to. But we can tell you that if you want to go up in the Petronas Towers, be sure to arrive first thing in the morning, and be prepared for some steamy weather!
Anyway, the next morning, we were off to Hong Kong!
