Kuala Lumpur in a Day

April 17, 2014

I was supposed to stay on another hostel in Kuala Lumpur, but when I Facebook messaged Karen, a college friend who is now Malaysia-based, she offered her place. My flight from Johor Bahru was very late, and she waited for me at McDonalds in KL Sentral. We planned to do the HOHO the following morning but decided otherwise. I only have one day to tour the city. We ended up with the Go KL buses, these are absolutely free!

Our first stop was the Petaling Street. This is the Chinatown of Kuala Lumpur. I've been to Chinatown in Singapore and Australia, but not in the Philippines. They all look the same to me,and expect many people to flock on this place, this is after all, a market. We also dropped by the Central Market. There are lots of stuff to buy on these places. But we just kinda window shopped. :P

We got hungry so we decided to jumped in at the Lot 10 Hutong. According to their website, "Lot 10 Hutong is a Malaysia's first and only heritage destination that pays tribute to one of the best loved national treasures - good food and the art of local cuisines.." If only for the variety, and the love of good food, I will definitely recommend this place!
Since it was hot that day, we decided to roam around the malls a bit. Pavilion looks fab!

There were many Line characters at the mall. I'm not even using Line. But they looked pretty cuddly. Agree? :P
Can I take you home? :)
We went ahead to our next destination, the Merdeka Square. The Sultan Abdul Samad building stands prominently specially with the beautiful clock tower.

We saw the National Textiles Museum, but didn't go inside. Instead we went to the nearby building, the Kuala Lumpur City Gallery. This place features lots of scale models of the different places in Kuala Lumpur.

This is the area where they create these pieces. Amazing people creating masterpieces!
But this was the most amazing thing in the gallery, the scale model of Kuala Lumpur!
This was our last stop, but in one day, I was able to visit these places. I'm happy that Karen squeezed me in her schedule, and accompanied me around the city. But what is Kuala Lumpur without the Petronas Twin Towers? :P Let me share my Petronas Twin Towers adventures, ayt? :P
