    Landing in KL we checked in to the parkroyal hotel which was a stones throw from the tourist area of Bukit bintang . then it was of to see the Batu caves about 13 kms outside of KL



    We took a taxi from the hotel but you can get a train from KL sentral for a few ringgit




    if your coming here on the weekend its probably best to get here early, gets packed with locals and tourists



    Dont ask me whats inside those caves , had a bit of gout going on ( self inflicted) there was no way i was climbing 300 stairs to find out. and it was bloody hot

    Arriving in Kl you quickly realise you are in one of the most cosmipolitan cities in asia and with more bars than mosques you wouldnt believe you werein a muslim country. however once you pick up the bar menu you quickly realsie that the fun tax is well and truly applied, we managed to dodge the mosques and found a few dive bars to drink at

    parkroyal turned out to be an excellent location for us as i wanted to buy some new shirts




    across the street was the sungai wang plaza, berjaya times square where you can experience an air conditioned theme park for adults and children called galaxy station and fantasy garden, sorry, the fantasy garden is the part for kids and bintang plaza, and a short stroll away was the monorail, to easy really



    And another place called pavillion wasnt far either


    Damn shame that asians discriminate against fat conts' after all that poncing about in malls looking for clothes i managed to find only one store selling clothes that actually fit me

    Thought we might have a look at the petronas twin towers and get some pics up there but there was a big line for that so just had a wander around the suria mall instead.



    later on that night we went to the Grand Hyatt where you can get a 360 view of KL and a good view of the twin towers


    next it was of to jalan petaling in china town for a look at the night market


    not much of interest really, just the usual chinese crap



    Some new shoes for the kids





    Bong anyone?

    Next day we took a taxi to genting highlands to ride the skyway

    Genting skyway is the worlds fastest mono cable car system, making genting highlands more inteesting. After "take off " lush greenery, cool highland mist and the audio guide make the ride strangely serene

    I have been traveling through Malaysia for many years and the only part you will notice the strong Muslim presence is up on the Thai border opposite to where all the fighting is going on.

    As far as the rest of the country goes they just cruise along. As a Tourist one wont notice any religious problems. The farang that live there more than likely have a different story.

    I do like Malaysia quite a bit.

    Genting calls itself the "City of Entertainment," serving as Malaysia's answer to Las Vegas, complete with bright lights (which can be seen from Kuala Lumpur) and gambling. And although most people come here for the casino, there's a wide range of other activities, although most of them seem to serve the purpose of entertaining the kids while you bet their college funds at the roulette wheel. While it lacks the sophistication of other casino destinations, it is very popular with local punters and families seeking a one-stop destination in the cooler mountain air.

    it was packed the day we went, come early



    i think we paid about 20 ringgit each and the youngest was free
    it really does get quite misty up there






    Kids loved it
    Back in the taxi and back to KL, trip over

    The thing is Danno, if you go traveling in peak period especially over Xmas you will encounter the mad crowds anywhere.

    Better to stop home and go once all the Muppets have gone back to work.

    ^ agreed, we arrived xmas eve and that airasia terminal was chaos with all the students flying about, a good thing with airasia though is the ability to print out your boarding pass online and if your not carrying much luggage your laughing , no need to line up to check in, Brilliant that

    Did your kids see the amusement park up there at Genting? Mine were so into it we ended up staying another night. Malaysia has it right 55 and you are a senior citizen, free admission to the park, and 1/2 price on all the casino buffets.

    get off my lawn

    if you have the time and want to beat the line up for the petronas twin towers
    buy a ticket the day before and you are reserved a place, also you get
    a seniors discount if you are over 55.

    I wish mate, beer is really overpriced there, but at least there is a decent selection of dark beer as well.
