My trip to KUALA LUMPUR, Beautiful Malaysia

After a stay of 7 days in Singapore I travelled to Kuala Lumpur for 3 days.The city is really big and modern though it is only approx. 150 years old.We took a sightseeing bus trip like in Singapore and visited KL Tower + Petronas Towers. I didn't know that there is also an observation deck on the 86th floor .

Here are a few facts about KL:

- 8.000.000 people

- area: 243 sq km

- 11 districts

- Kuala lumpur means muddy river delta

now have fun with the pictures!

the airport, awarded for the best airport worldwide a few years ago



approx. 60km bus trip to the city



first sight of the twin towers, my heart was jumping





one of thousands of construction sites





view from the hotel room









KLCC



another construction





our hotel



Lobby



shopping district Bukit Bintang

great photos!

I love that feeling when you first spot the landmarks of a city in the distance coming from the airport and the excitement you get!!

Referring to the first post, the KL city proper has approx. a population of less than 2 mil. The whole Klang Valley or surrounding districts has a total of approx. 8 mil. It really gives u a sense of how KL is built up with tat population count..

does city proper refer to the CBD in this case? or the cbd+surrounding suburbs?

City proper refers to KL city/metro area only, excluding its surrounding/outlying areas from the city...

Nice place! Seems KL is not always sunny.
I agree that it's exciting to enter a city from the airport, seeing the skyline from afar.
