Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Our first stop, is the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport. This is located somewhere in the far north already. Basically in Subic, Pampanga. We've landed in this airport since we've chosen Air Asia as our carrier to Kuala Lumpur. Air Asia's terminal is only located there so we have no choice but to abide.

Travel period from Philippines to Malaysia is around 6 hours. So while in the plane, we've fine tuned our Itineraries to be able to make sure that we will not miss different must see's in the country. Of course, after the "review", we ended up sleeping to make sure that we have the strength to tour Kuala Lumpur.

We checked-in in Bintang Warisan Hotel. The hotel is very accessible to almost anything! Almost 2-3 blocks from our hotel is Pasar Malam Night Market and the Pavilion. We went to the Night Market to get us some "Pasalubong".

Tired and hungry, we wanted to try some Malaysian delicacies. Luckily, we've passed through one hawker in one of the streets going to our hotel. We got the chance to eat in "Nasi Lemak Kukus" (means steamed rice with coconut milk). A full meal with an average of 1RM. Not bad for a tourist with tight budget huh?

We rested early to make sure that we can wake up in the morning for the Batu Cave. Unfortunately, due to some circumstances, we woke up late. hehe! Anyways, we went straight up to Batu Cave. When you're here, you'll be thinking, are we in India already? Lot's of Indians around since this is a place of worship for them. Huge statues of different Hindu gods covered almost the whole place. Mind you, if you plan to travel here, better bring an umbrella and lots of water because the place is very humid. whew!

After taking some shots in Batu Cave, we are very hungry to the extent that we don't know where to eat. Until we've bumped in this resto named - Chicken Rice Shop. Set meals are somewhat cheap and good for 4 persons. Not bad for a 33RM meal.

Next stop is the National Museum. Actually, we went here by an accident. We tried the Hop-Off, Hop-On bus and to our surprise, it costs a fortune! Huwaaaw! Roughly 44RM for 24hour ride in the city. We are expecting that there is some sort of a minimum wage when going to the next hop-off points but unfortunately, once you ride the bus, you're gonna pay the whole rate.

KL Telecommunication Tower (Menara KL) is one of the known tower in KL. When we got their, they have other recreations like Snow village and Zip line.

Sad part in our tour is we haven't got the chance to climb on top of the Petronas Twin Towers. However, we didn't bother to take some shots outside of one of the tallest high riser in the world

On our last day, we ended up going to Sunway Lagoon Theme Park. We like the concept of this park. It's a combination of Splash Island and Enchanted Kingdom. Nice place for the family!

Last stop, Genting Highlands! One unforgettable experience that we had here was we rode the cable car 3 times! whew! At first, it's pretty awesome but eventually you'll be bored in it. Anyways, Genting Highland is a theme park for the family. They have an outdoor and indoor park that can really satisfy whatever adventure you may have. We suggest if you'll come here, better book your room here and have a whole day tour of the place.

Alright. We've described all the things we've done here in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Til next time :)
