Incredible Asia: Kuala Lumpur

Our next destination in Malaysia was its capital Kuala Lumpur, or KL, as it is often referred to. This was another day full of impressions, discoveries, and new people. My brightest memories from here are the KL Tower during the thundersorm, and a Chinese district at night.

Our first stop was in KLCC, or KL City Centre Park.

Petronas Twin Towers (Menara Petronas) – by far the most famous tourist attraction in KL.

A ride in the local overground train. Interestingly, the seats are positioned in the middle.
