Dan "indiana" Jones and the travel adventures
After that perilously long journey it was really nice to just chill in KL for a few days. Our plan was to find the golden triangle which is headed by the Petronas twin towers which are the tallest twin structures in the world. It took us a bit of exploring but eventually we found it. It was pretty amazing. Slightly bigger than anything in Teignmouth! The actual towers are full of offices but the base of the structure is a heeeeuuuuge 6 floor shopping complex. It was awesome and had everything. It was air conditioned and was basically KL city centre. We found a cinema and my resolve from Bangkok crumbled. We ended up going three nights on the trot. M:I 3 is ok. nothing amazing though. Watch a film called fragile if you can, got some pretty scary moments. Cinema cost about 3 quid for the both of us each time so it's not like we were breaking the bank. To be honest it was nice to have a bit of familiarity. We found a supermarket that had sooooo much nice food (see picture of babybel the size of my fist!). It was awesome to have fresh fruit and snacks galore. The twin towers do a free tour to the sky bridge (which is only half way up but impressive none the less). Only catch was that you had to be there at 08:30 to get your tickets and it was on a first come first serve basis. It was a real struggle but we made it. Later that afternoon We visited the Batu caves which are about 45mins away from KL. Again they were pretty impressive. They are used a lot for religious purposes but it was kind of a shame that such a naturally beautiful place had been cluttered with all these statues and stuff. I know that's kind of ignorant of me to say but I'm sure you all know what I mean! Wheelers guest house was the place we stayed at in KL and once you got over the poor first impressions it wasn't too bad. Ultimately it was friendly, cheap, and had a bed and somewhere to leave our bags and so served its purpose. On our last day in KL we visited the Aquaria. It was pretty cool. Not as good as the one in Bangkok but the underwater tunnel was longer. So Kuala Lumpur was pretty cool all round. Next up, Taman Negara national park!
