Dear friends and family,
We spent a few days around Kuala Lumpur, staying in old china town and visiting the new comercial districts. We did quite alot of window shopping it has to be said! There are plenty of shiny new malls including one with a full sized rollar coaster inside as well as university nursing campus on the 10th floor!!
The highlight of our time here was visiting the telecom tower to get a full 360degree view of the city. It was great and the city was alot greener than we had anticipated. We also went to see the Petronas towers at dusk just as it was lighting up for the evening. The towers where once the tallest in the world, they now stand at a still impressive 5th and 6th however remain the tallest twin towers.
We visited the colonail distrcit on our last day, taking in Medaka Square and the beautiful Islamic and European inspired buildings.
We are off to Borneo now, wish us luck with the nature spotting!
love Liz and Dale xxx
