Day 3. Petronas Towers and Jalan Alor, Kuala Lumpur

At 2.00 pm we set off again, this time to KLCC Park  from where we took photos of the famous Petronas Towers.  Although there was still haze overhead,  the tops of the towers were visible.  Around the far side of the complex lies a small park with fountains and a shallow lake which seemed popular with children.

We found that the views were much better from the bridge and we paused to take some photos before taking a look in the upscale Suria Mall below the towers.   We had moved indoors just in time, as there was a large crack of thunder followed by a heavy rain shower.  Hopefully the rain would help to clear some of the haze over the country, as the Air Pollution Index (API) still stood extremely high.

On returning to the hotel we called in the Cold Storage supermarket for some Tiger beer and crisps, and after an hour’s sleep we freshened up, made a Skype call to home and then headed back out to the food street of Jalan Alor.  It had stopped raining so we were able to eat outdoors selecting a different restaurant from the previous night.  From the menu we settled on Salt and Pepper Prawns and Chicken Fried Rice, both very good choices and extremely tasty.

It was 10.30 pm when we returned to our hotel and after a quick look on our iPads we were soon ready for bed after a lovely day exploring the city.

  1. Thanks for the like of my Museums for Fun in Bratislava. Looks like you hit all the highlights and a few lowlights of Kuala Lumpur. Your article about the Petronas towers brought back memories of my friends who had a network/computer consultancy there. I have a photo of my daughter standing alone on the bridge that connects the two towers. Cheers
