Stuff I Did in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Here’s what I did during my short stint in KL. (Other than take the LSAT, haha.)

 

  1. KUALA LUMPUR BIRD PARK, KL Bird Park, 920, Jalan Cenderawasih, 50480 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
    1. Entrance fee was about 50 ringgits, or $13 USD. The park was really big, and going there was way more fun than I had expected. There’s something majestic about being surrounded by giant, weird birds.  Highlight of the trip was the emus, by far. Oh, and the monkeys were cute.

The Hindu Times

A couple of things struck me right away upon exiting Kuala Lumpur International Airport. One: The unbearable humidity; and two: The multiculturalism.

Having spent more time than I’d like to admit knee-deep in the rigid homogeneity of South Korea, I found the intermingling of Malay, Indian, Chinese and European people / food / architecture / culture in the capital fascinating.

Untouchable

Escaping the capital for a day trip to the Batu Caves (more on that place soon), I found myself enraptured by KL’s Indian / Hindu culture. I’d gone there mainly to see our cheeky simian cousins cause all kinds of mayhem to the tourists, but came away intrigued with the sub-continents religion of choice.


In Kuala Lumpur

We arrived in Kuala Lumpur this morning after staying in a small airport hotel last night. Taking the airport express train, we were carried from countryside through to suburbs and then briefly through the city until we alighted at KL Sentral, the main train station of the city.

After booking train tickets on to Ipoh for tomorrow, we found a taxi which took us in the central shopping and business area of the city, Bukit Bintang. It is also where we have reserved a room in a quaint guesthouse within sight of a large hotel we had been considering before our friend recommended otherwise. As we had arrived too early to check in, we left our bags with reception and set out to take a short wander around the locale.
