We flew into Kuala Lumpur and caught the public transport to our Reggae mansion... That's right! Mansion! It's by far the best hostel we have seen or been to! It's a renovated 3 storey building with a rooftop bar and is located in the heart of Chinatown. We really got looked after here and I was a little sad to leave. Chinatown had a huge central market selling almost everything and down the road are cramped street markets selling souvenirs such as "authentic" Levis and Oakley sunglasses. We visited the petrona towers and the KL tower. The KL tower we paid to go up to the sky deck for a view of the city. You could see a full 360degrees but the sky was a little hazey so I view wasn't the best. Included in our ticket we were given almost 2minutes on a F1 simulator and then transported back the front gates. The city was really easy to see by foot and we managed to knock out most of the sites in a day. Bukit Bintang is shopping central so we spent a day there mostly browsing but picked up a few bargains. One shopping centre had an indoor theme park with the largest indoor roller coaster. We got a little closer to KL's Indian culture by visiting the Batu caves. There are 3 caves but the most famous is temple cave because it contains a Hindu shrine reached by a straight flight of steps, guarded by a 43metre high statue - The highest in the world!! Also guarding the cave were the cheeky monkeys who of course are looking for food. We ended our trip to KL with a trip to the Elephant sanctuary. We went with a few others from our hostel. We arrived and watched an interesting video documentary that talked about the elephants in Malaysia and how they transfer them to bigger forests. We then went through to the feeding of the elephants, a short elephant show, elephant rides and then we got to swim with the baby elephants! It was so much fun and such a great experience.
