    Not only are they a symbol of the country's cultural significance, but they also feature many modern amenities. The towers have conference rooms, an art gallery, and are lit up at night with a spectacular light show. The towers are a must-see for anyone visiting the area, and a reminder of the beauty and culture of Malaysia.

    A very vibrant and bright attack on the senses. From the aroma of delightful Asian dishes to the not so pleasant waft of durian fruit. This place has you covered for any number of food choices. And the location is very central to the city, we stayed at the parkroyal and this was only a few minutes walk. Though cutting through some back lane ways did make the wife nervous. Stick to the main streets, well lit and plenty of security.

    I stayed 3 nights in KL and unfortunately had no time to visit Menara Kuala Lumpur. The tallest in KL. It changes the colors every few seconds.

    Love the walkway, can walk in aircon comfort from my hotel- Impiana KLCC to KLCC and Bukit Bintang. We never even walk onto the pavement because of this walkway.

    The Thean Hou Temple is a modern Chinese temple. It's located on a hill, from where you have a good view of Kuala Lumpur. If you've been to China and visited temples there, you might find it too modern and simple. However, it's still interesting and worth a visit.

    The National Mosque (Masjid Negara) is the main mosque in Kuala Lumpur. We arrived during prayer times so we couldn't get in, just walk around the gardens and see it from the outside. It's quite big and new.

    Visited as some markets are usually a good place for trinkets, clothing etc. This was a good clean and friendly market with all the stalls you would expect. Some touristy based ones with some more authentic clothing at good prices if you walk around. Easy to get to with public transport nearby.

    As the title suggests, not a great deal has changed over the years in Chinatown. I did notice on my recent visit that there is now a roof covering much of the area. I cannot remember seeing this on my last visit. Although that was quite a few years ago.
    Probably because on The Internet I did not spot a single vendor selling D.V.Ds. However, there are still more than enough stalls selling cheap watches to please even the most fastidious visitor. There appear to be more stalls selling pirated clothing and accessories now than before, but then again it could very well be because of my not being here for a while. As before though, this place is heaving, and it is difficult to wander among some of the stalls because of so many visitors.
    One thing that has always tickled us is the chap selling roast chestnuts right in the middle of Chinatown. Roasted chestnuts are not something normally associated with a tropical country like Malaysia.

    This was one of the stops in Central Market area and the first Indian Temple visit for this trip in KL. It actually was quieter inside than I expected.

    They were very strict with ensuring no shoes were worn inside or even carried in the hands or inside a bag. A bunch of carts were in front selling various combinations of offerings for the temple.

    Once inside we walked through two floors. The first floor was very bright with colorful tiles, gold trims used throughout. On the second floor, the windows gave views of the statues mounted on the rooftop.

    We spent about 15 minutes inside.

    This area is called Merdeka district where you find the main highlights in the capital. It’s a late 19th century building. The building originally housed the offices of the British colonial administration, and was known as Government Offices.

    Merdeka Square is a large colonial square in Kuala Lumpur. I suppose that at another time of the year, it must be very beautiful, but on the day we went, all the grass and plants were dry. They were also doing construction work on some of the buildings nearby.

    Located in Merdaka Square, the main draw seems to be the I Love KL sign out in front. However, there was a much better sign located on the second floor but not in red.

    On the first floor was a small diorama of KL, a room cataloguing history of KL as well as a busy cafe and gift shop.

    The second floor was much quieter so don’t miss it. Here was a much larger 3D model of the greater KL city in one large room, a wall with details about the tall buildings in KL, an angel wings wall (for IGs), a cool floating model of the Sultan Abdul Samad Building.

    Went there not only to perform my prayer, but also taking nice photo as well within the mosque vicinity. Mosque's staff is great, friendly and willing to went extra mile.

    The most interesting cotton fabrics I found this year were from the bargain counters of the great Jakel Mall. If you are satisfied with polyester there are several Indian shops selling colourfull saris which could also be used as curtains or other home decoration. A street food market was selling all kinds of local delights but the permanent stalls at the covered bazaar near the subway station were reduced.
