Truly Malaysia

The Petronas Twin Towers (also known as the Petronas Towers or Twin Towers), in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia were the world's tallest buildings, before being surpassed by the Taipei 101.
now She is the tallest twin tower in the world.

Kuala Lumpur

It’s a 5 hour journey from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur Malaysia by bus. After an hour we reached the Singapore Immigration, I presented my passport to finally exit Singapore. Then our bus crossed the bridge connecting Singapore and Malaysia. After passing the Malaysia Immigration, our journey continues, at 8:30 pm we arrived at Kuala Lumpur City Center or they called it KLCC.

Kuala Lumpur the capital city and represents the heartbeat of Malaysia, serving as its cultural, commercial and transportation center. KL is seen clearly in the various cultural customs and religious beliefs, as well as languages, and architecture.
KL is the best example of the city that has managed to preserve the best of its cultural heritage and combine it with modern conveniences to offer the best experiences to visitors.

Petronas Twin Towers (also known as the Petronas Towers or Twin Towers), in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia were the world's tallest buildings, before being surpassed by the Taipei 101. However, the towers are still the tallest twin buildings and office building in the world. Morning of October 30, 2008, we took MRT from the nearest station in our hotel then alighting at KLCC station.
Set in the heart of Kuala Lumpur's Golden Triangle, Suria KLCC is surrounded by hotels, office buildings, a scenic park and dancing fountains, promising hours of leisurely pleasure. From whichever entrance you take, the excitement hits you the minute you step into the sensational splendor and diversity of the centre.

Suria KLCC is Malaysia's premier shopping destination located at Kuala Lumpur prestigious commercial address, the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC). From Petronas Towers we walked along Jalan P. Ramlee heading the KL tower. KL tower is the 4th world’s tallest telecommunication tower. Entrance ticket cost RM 20 for adults. Above the tower you can see the whole KL in 360 degrees view.
From KL tower we took a cab going to Berjaya Times square one of the largest mall in the world.

Then we came back at Petronas to buy some souvenirs and avail the free walk to its Sky Bridge which scheduled at 4:30 PM.
From Petronas at KLCC MRT station we proceed to the Merdeka Square.

The Dataran Merdeka (or Merdeka Square) is situated in front of the Sultan Abdul Samad Building. It was here the Union Flag was lowered and the Malayan flag hoisted for the first time at midnight on August 31, 1957. Since then, Dataran Merdeka has been the usual venue for the annual Hari Merdeka Parade (National Day Parade)

TIP: if you’re not in hurry and wanted to see all Kuala Lumpur’s tourist attractions, you can ride its HOP IN HOP OFF Bus Service. It’s a double decker bus equipped with state of the art facilities. There are altogether 22 stops that you can hop on or hop off the bus.
So if you have the time (which we didn’t have) try to sit through the entire journey of the bus. But you need to be patient in waiting as punctuality is affected by the condition of the traffic.

At 6:30 PM we’re on the cab heading the airport to catch our flight bound to Bangkok Thailand.
