Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia


I spent only three days in KL and remained pleasantly surprised. Traffic, shopping and Nasi Lemak

Traffic in KL is chaotic. I stepped out on the road when the pedestrian light was green but the cars didn’t stop, ever. I had to be aggressive when crossing the road otherwise would still standing there on the sidewalk and getting yelled by angry drivers. Semaphores are only decoration in the city, just like lights on the Christmas tree. 

What to do in Kuala Lumpur? KL is made for shopping. It’s easy to find anything, from famous and luxurious brands to cheap imitations. Petronas Twin Towers is the most famous landmark (of course with huge shopping center). I’ve been on the top, 360 m above the ground enjoying breathtaking views. I even took a quick train ride to the Batu Caves. The main draw from this Hindu attraction is the giant golden statue of Lord Murugan, the 272 steps to reach the main caves and monkeys. Monkeys everywhere! Be careful with your belongings, they are pretty curious creatures.

When in Malaysia be sure to try Nasi Lemak. Rice boiled in coconut milk, anchovies, peanuts, boiled eggs and who knows what else? Wrapped in banana leaf, it’s a real treat.
