Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - 3 Days Itinerary Part 1

Post our Langkawi expedition, we moved to explore the busy city life of Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. The place is the cultural, financial and economic centre of Malaysia. The city boasts of the tallest twin towers in the world and the modern skyline is dominated by it. We were lucky to witness the Sea games and the KL fashion week during our visit. We stayed at the famous Holiday Inn Express in the city centre and had an amazing experience. The Indonesian team (SEA games) was also putting up in our hotel. :) KL is well connected by bus(MRT, GO KL) and monorails and truly the leading city for tourism and shopping. Our itinerary too was a mix of both.
Our Hotel @ Kuala Lumpur


Day 1 - Suria KLCC
One of the massive shopping malls in KL is Suria KLCC. This mall is at the foot of the Petronas twin towers. It was at a walking distance from our hotel and we explored every bit of it. There are lot of eating joints and one savor the taste of authentic local delicacies. After tons of shopping we went back to our hotel and had a good night sleep.

Day 2 - Batu Caves and The Pavilion (KL Fashion Week)
 After a hearty breakfast at our hotels, we went for exploring the famous Batu Caves. It was drizzling and the weather was a bit cold. We started walking towards the nearest monorail station around the corner of our hotel. After about an hour we reached the Batu Cave station. The view of the caves from the station platform was amazing. There was still little showers and we marched forward with our umbrellas on. Entered the famous Ramayana Cave (Suyambu Lingam) and there are approx 50-80 steep stairs to view the lingam. Post that we proceeded to the Batu Caves. There are approx 300 stairs to reach the temple top. On the way one can spot ample of monkey's playing around. You may stop and click some poses with them too, unless you are not afraid. At the top there is a temple dedicated to Lord Murugan. The limsetone forming Batu Cave is said to be 400 million years old. Post the darshans we proceeded back to the KL city center area, to explore another massive shopping mall - The Pavilion. And to our surprise, we had a chance to see the KL Fashion show. It was one of an experience of its kind. Sharing couple of glimpses -
