Wanderlust Wednesday – 7/10/15

Wanderlust Wednesday

I’ve had a busy few days, I’ve just found out I’ve secured a place in the London Marathon, managed to get tickets for Glastonbury festival next year and right now I’m off to London to work for the day! Anyway, back to ‘Wanderlust Wednesday’. This week I thought I would share some photos of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This was the first stop of mine and Stu’s trip. We were in awe of the Petronas Towers! Hope you enjoy our pictures!

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Staying at The Travel Hub.

And so the trip begins! After months of saving and waiting in anticipation, we said our emotional goodbyes at Heathrow and set off to travel the world. Our first stop is KL and we are staying next to Chinatown. We found the hostel on www.hostelbookers.com and chose the ‘deluxe double room’ (a double bed in a room haha).

KL is amazing! You’ve got the luxury surrounding the Petronas Towers with beautiful gardens and up market shopping malls and then the madness of Chinatown just a short train journey away. Chinatown was filled with market stalls selling everything you could ever need at really cheap prices. Think Khao San Road but bigger.

Getting around KL was easy, the train system was easy to understand and works like the London Underground. You buy a token from a machine at your start station which you scan to get on to the platform and then the barrier swallows the token when you leave the station. We were pros after a day!

We fell in love with the towers and saw them at night all lit up and then went to the top of them in the day. This costs 80RM each which is about £14. It’s definitely worth doing as you can see for miles and KL is surrounded by beautiful scenery.

There’s lots of good places to eat in KL so we had a mixture of Malyasian and more Western food. We’ll be back here at the end of March to catch our flight to Australia but after a 3 night stay it is time to head to Vietnam.
