Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia,
The hubby had a two-day business trip to KL and a round trip ticket was only $60 USD, so I had to go and check it out.
Kuala Lumpur is the capital and most populous city in Malaysia, an estimated 1.6 million people live there.
I was surprised to see what a modern city it is. The architecture is a blend of old colonial influences, Asian traditions, and Malay Islamic inspirations.
Below is the Menara tower, the tallest telecommunications tower in SE Asia. At the top is a restaurant. The hubby ate there on a previous trip.
The city's most famous landmark is the Petronas Twin Towers standing at 1483 feet. Built in 1992 by Petronas (their national oil company), they were the tallest buildings in the world up until 2004. They now sit at number four, but still hold the title for the tallest twin buildings in the world. I do not like elevators or heights so we did not go up.
The Twin Towers are especially beautiful at night.
This may be my shortest travel post ever.... but hey, it was only a two-day trip!
Good Night KL.
