Kuala Lumpur Sentral

Attraction | "Transiting in KL Sentral"

Quote:
KL Sentral is a large plaza built around the main train station in Kuala Lumpur. It reminded me of a larger version of an airport departure lounge with many stores, mobile phone companies and lots of cafes and restaurants. I was on my way to the airport to catch a flight at 1am, but since it was very early (only 7pm) I decided to hang around KL Sentral for a few hours.After alighting the monorail from Bukit Bintang, I entered the large lobby of the plaza. From the moment you walk in, you are confronted with stalls selling bags, purses, shoes and all sorts of clothing. LED signs flash above your head, advertising everything from perfumes to expensive jewelry, and commercial banners hang fro...Read More

After a great night at Paradiso B&B, I was ready to see the Petronas Towers and spend a quiet afternoon in the KLCC Park. Travelling can get pretty stressful, so I was seriously looking forward to some quiet time. I met up with a friend from home, and he led the way to the twin towers. The trip included a short journey on the monorail and a fifteen minute walk before the peaks of the towers could be seen.The Petronas Towers are defintely an architectural wonder. The towers stood tall at over 1400 feet, and the spires at the top appeared to touch the sky! There was a small bridge which connected the two towers, and interested visitors could purchase tickets for a tour. I snapped several...Read More

There were several different budget hotels along Bukit Bintang in Kuala Lumpur, and since it would take forever to take a look at each one, I found a cafe with free wifi, and went online to hunt for reviews. I checked several sites including Tripadvisor.com and decided on a small hotel/hostel called Paradiso Bed & Breakfast.After making a note of the instructions on how to locate the building, I swung my backpack on my shoulders and headed off to find my next home. The directions were pretty clear, so I located the guest house in a short amount of time and inquired about any free rooms at the front desk. Since it was the off season, there were plenty of available beds, so I booked one ...Read More

Kuala Lumpur is a large city in Malaysia with several distinct neighbours. For tourists planning on exploring the city independently, there are several options available to get from one place to another. These methods are outlined below:The Metro:This transportation option proved to be invaluable during my time in Kuala Lumpur. The metro runs throughout the entire city, with convenient stops nearby to most of the attractions. For visitors like myself without a pass, the best option is to pay as you go. To do this, you must buy your tickets from the booth rather than using a machine. The metro was very affordable, and most of my tickets were purchased for less than 2 Malaysian Ringgit...Read More

Attraction | "Cosmo's World Indoor Park"

Quote:
The Berjaya Times Square is a mega shopping complex located in downtown Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. You could easily spend two entire days browsing through the stores in this mall (there are over a thousand stores in all). It is truly a shoppers paradise, but I didn't visit the shopping plaza to max out my credit card. I was there for a whole different reason altogether.The biggest indoor theme park in Asia is located at Berjaya Times Square and I couldn't wait to see it for myself. The park was called Cosmo's World and extended through three different levels of the mall. There was a wicked looking rollercoaster which almost touched the roof, and I was quite excited to give it a go! However, I...Read More
