    We enjoyed our visit to the Central Markets, not too busy on the day we visited, great banter with the stall holders and departed with a few local handicrafts, a couple of pleasant dining experiences and good memories. The market is reputed to house some 350+ outlets that showcase a range of goods from the ethnic mix that is Maylasia. In our younger years we would have departed with many artefacts but have become more discerning in senior year, buying the occasional trinket as a gift or memento, but generally something useful to us. My wife spent time in the shoe stores and I, GSY Shop with its fine selection of Beryl's chocolates.

    Loved the lights to music display. Well worth a visit at dusk to see the sound and light show, and the Petronas Towers. We caught a train from the airport which took 40 mins and cost A$35 each return ticket. We did have to change trains at one point, but the staff at the station were very helpful. The food in the food court was delicious and not expensive.

    This was our second visit to Independence Square, a historic area where the Union Jack was lowered and replaced by the Malaysian flag at midnight on 31st August, 1957 and now the venue for the annua Independence Parade. The flagpole rises to a height of 95m and the Square is surrounded by various historic buildings. Still vestiges of the British presence with the Royal Selangor Club and the Victoria Fountain.

    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.

    We really enjoyed the opportunity to see and learn about this relocated village headman’s residence. Surrounded by skyscrapers, this is a fascinating glimpse into the past and a calming escape. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. A wonderful experience! Highly recommended.

    Good prices for garments and textile products. Quite a number of restaurants around too if you are hungry / thirsty. Jalan TAR (as it is affectionately known by locals) can get quite crowded in the run up to local festivals such as Hari Raya (Muslim Eid) and Deepavali (Hindu celebration). Roads around here can get quite jammed, so it is best to use public transport to get here.

    The River of Life is the area at the confluence of Klang and Gombak Rivers in front of the Jamek Sultan Abdul Samad Mosque. The name derives from a project by the Government for the restoration of the river and surrounding areas. Our driver advised that the project is ongoing. Some delightful on buildings adjacent the river.

Getting here is a breeze, thanks to convenient public transport connections. And when the sun dips below the horizon, the street comes to life with a captivating dance of lights, promising an unforgettable nocturnal adventure.

    Nice temple, and the priests are very accomodative. They understand the different rituals of Indians and don't blink an eye if you do something different to local customs.

    This imposing structure seems to be sill in the construction or fit-out stage judging by the barriers surrounding. We had to make do with views of the exterior from a variety of vantage points around the city. The outline of the tower is representative of the silhouette of Tunku Abdul Rahman when he raised his right hand and chanted the word “Merdeka!” 7 times on 31 August 1957 and symbolises the union of the historic and contemporary. Our taxi drivers told us that everyone in KL is proud of the structure and its claim to be the 2nd tallest structure after the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Looking forward to a return visit to KL and views from the observation decks when opened.

    There wasn't much happening on the day we visited, a few stalls and bored stallholders and no customers. Enjoyed seeing the sculpture of the Malayan Peacock and the old Bullock Cart. The Central Markets were more interesting.

    I stayed at the Equatorial KL for one night during my family trip to KL. I was looking for a hotel that was close to the city center, had a modern and elegant design, and offered a great value for money , whilst has in house EV charger at good rate. The room was spacious and comfortable, with a 2 queen-sized bed, a sofa, a desk, and a large window overlooking the KL Tower. The room was spotless and well-maintained, with fresh towels and toiletries. The breakfast was delicious and varied, with a wide selection of hot and cold dishes, pastries, fruits, juices, and coffee. The staff was friendly and helpful, always ready to assist me with any requests or questions. I had a wonderful stay at the hotel and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Kuala Lumpur. It is a beautiful hotel with excellent service and amenities, and it offers a great value for money. I would definitely stay here again if I come back to Kuala Lumpur.
