Our last full day in Kuala Lumpur – Day Twenty Six, Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia).
Wednesday 11th July
Wednesday was our last full day in Kuala Lumpur and we had a lot left we wanted to see, so we started the day early, visiting Batu Caves to start with. From Bukit Bintang, it took us around 1.5 hours to reach the Batu Caves by public transport, surprisingly for such a large city the public transport in Kuala Lumpur really isn’t that great! The Batu Caves is a limestone hill, named after the local village and is a very popular visitor attraction in Kuala Lumpur. We enjoyed wandering around for an hour, but the monkeys did scare me!
After a morning at the Batu Caves, we headed to the KL Eco Forest to do the Canopy Walk through the trees. The forest has loads of great little rainforest walks, with the biggest attraction probably being the canopy walk – it’s also super close to the Kuala Lumpur Tower for more magnificent views of the city.
When travelling I like to pamper myself a little, and since has been pretty much 4 weeks since I’d last had my nails done we headed to Berjaya Times Square to hunt down a nail salon. The shopping centre was full of them, and for 55 MYR/$19/£10 I had my nails manicured and gel polish done.
After another day of 15km walking, we were pretty hungry so headed to a great little cheap eat Indian restaurant named Nagasari Curry House. The Indian food in Malaysia is out of this world, its some of the tastiest and cheapest we’ve ever eaten, and at $15/£8/44 MYR for two mains, two sides, and two drinks it definitely is a cheap eat!
To finish the day off we headed to see the light show at KLCC Park, we’ve heard lots of good things about this light show so arrived a little before 9pm so that we could get a good spot to watch the show. Unfortunately, we weren’t that impressed by the show – we could hardly hear the music, and the show seemed to keep stopping for minutes at a time which left everyone slightly confused. It is a great place to get an amazing view of the Petron Towers though.
