Today we did an excursion into KL as the locals call it. I really knew little about KL. It is a very western and very modern city. Very clean and easy to navigate.
An hour bus ride from the port brought us to the national museum. A very nice museum showcasing Malaysian history.
We then when to see the national mosque, a beautiful building in the middle of the very modern city.
We then went to the national war monument, amazing how far reaching the Japanese were in WWII.
Finally we got to see the Petrous Towers, apparently the tallest twin towers in the world, very impressive. They like the tall buildings here, a new one is almost finished which will be the second tallest in the world after the one in Dubai.
We were surprised how much we liked it here. Malaysia can stay on the list of possible places to relocate to.
One thought on “Kuala Lumpur”
What an incredible city. It is much more westernized than I would have imagined. I was there … 30? … years ago and I don’t remember much modern architecture at all. I have a very vivid memory of waking up to the sounds of the songs of prayers that were broadcast from the many mosques. I also remember the amazing food. I continue to be envious of your travels.
