Travel time! Welcome to Malaysia!
Updated: Nov 18, 2018
After 17 hrs traveling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, on the 3rd of being in KL, I feel that jetlag kicks me now, so I cannot sleep. I don't feel like wasting time, so I made myself coffe and started writing...
I was hoping that tiredness will help me to sleep here like a baby. Unfortunately, after first night of recovery, I came back to my sleepless nights routine. Apparently my body is trying to tell me that I don't need to sleep that much. Maybe 7-8h recommended sleeping time is not always needed. Now I am wondering how far I could go and how much I could achieve sleeping only 4h like Anna Wintour. I think I should take this in to consideration...
My very first impression of Malaysia and KL was related to people, who are very friendly here and anyhow don't seem to be loud. As I always thought this about Asian people. Apparently my imagination was wrongn. In my opinion, KL doesn't have very hectic spirit. I would even say it's pretty quite like for such a metropolis.
But the most impressive was the view from the rooft top swimming pool in our hotel! Whenever you go to Kula Lumpur, make sure to spend at least one night in The Face Suits
The view is really impressive and prices double like for 5 starts hotel.
Having Petronas Twin Towers which are among the world's tallest building was really impressive. But Kuala Lumpur is not only city of modern architecture. It's also a place full of colors and amazing food! Especial fruits and ''street food'' is something what should be crossed from the list ''done''.
Outside of the city, barely 13 km away from Kuala Lumpur, there is another touristic attraction-small town Batu Caves, which like a name suggests, has series of caves and cave temples. In from of the 272 steps which we need to climb to be able to get to the beautiful temple hidden between rocks, there is impressive Lord Murugan Statue.
In the end one remark that might be importnat for all the alcohol lovers as me :) I need to confirm that I was quite surprised that in a Muslim country like Malaysia alcohol is so easily available. What was even bigger surprised for me, they know how to make proper Mojito!
