    Good pics and report. KL is a nice place - different to Bangkok but quite nice too.

    Many thanks for all the kind comments and the green repo. Much obliged fellas.
    Will try and get a mate to transfer the phone pics over the weekend. I will be interested to see the quality comparison because the phone has more pixels than the cheap little camera I used.
    I feel another trip coming on soon. Where next guys? Cambo, Vietnam, Stoke?

    Glad to read that you had a great trip and made it back home safely.
    Again - wonderful pics.

    I'm not sure of your relationship picture, but is this a trip that you would recommend taking with a Thai lady or not ? Is it better without due to the cultural nuances ?

    Depemds on the level of interest and knowledge. I told her where I was going and why and even showed her the online bookings.
    When I got back she asked me if I enjoyed Singapore. Many ways to interpret that comment, but you would have to know her quite well to get it right.
    Would take a wife or GF LTR, but not family. She would come in handy to carry the camera.
    If you take a Thai woman to KL you will need anther 3 wallets.

    As far as costs go in KL. As long as one does not drink in proper bars or eat in big restaurants its very reasonable indeed.

    Plenty of markets and street food available, drinks are OK in markets and on the streets, getting around on public transport is cheap and efficient and good rooms available from 1000 baht.

    Place falls down badly in the Eye candy department compared to Thailand though.

    Just saw this thread now. Didn't see it when it was posted years ago.

    Thanks for the pix, chas.

    P.s. I wasn't the one who originally bumped this thread, Lom did.

    I've been to KL a few times since this first trip. The only thing I would note is re Terry's comment on women. Such is the mix, and the religious dress overtones, the women are the equal of the Thai variety, just harder to spot due to modest dress codes. Some great eyes and pretty faces. The rest? Who knows? It's fun guessing, unlike Thailand where the obvious is pretty much in your face the whole time.

    Just pondering my next trip. Bali or Vietnam. Not decided but I really enjoyed Bali last year.

    @chas - yes, the dress code in women is very varied. Lots of them wearing hijab, but saw a few Chinese Malays who wore shorty-shorts or skirts. Some fashionistas too, esp in the malls. Went there last year for 2 days, my hotel was near KL sentral & little india. As I was walking in the neighborhood, I felt a bit uncomfy walking around, as I wore shorts and some of the Indian guys stared. Or maybe I was just paranoid. Lol. Note to self: don't wear shorts again if staying near little india, or if ever I go to India!

    This thread and many others deserves a bump. TD is a content gold mine. Just takes some digging to find it. Bumping good travel threads should be encouraged.

    I took pictures with a pic thread in mind. I suspect a lot of your travel threads are the same Katie, as well as taking pics for your own consumption?
    I admire your patience with the 19th Century pic software on here. Having just spent 2 weeks in PI, the local internet issues must make it doubly difficult.

    ^well, before I joined TD, I just took pix for myself or family. And I didn't take too many street pics or 'person on the street' pix, just mainly of statues, bldgs or touristy venues. Seeing how BLD, Terry & other ppl have shown their travel pix have made me appreciate "ordinary ppl" on the streets too. Heck, I now take pics of girls in skirts (haha) and squat toilets. And of Pringles!

    Yeah, internet in PI is slooooowwww. Now, it's ok since I'm on phone. But trying to link my pics to the forum at this hour - it would be a pain. I never bothered to decipher the TD gallery, I use a diff hosting site. That way, I can delete all my pics if ever I flounce. Heh...

    Cheers, chas! Happy weekend!

    P.s. can you update this thread w/ your new pics? Pretty please?

    The KL pics and the Bali ones are on a fried hard drive and now lost, as I am too old and stupid to have them backed up. Besides, I have forgotten how TD gallery works. I think I hosted them elsewhere like you did.

    Yeah, but it's not a patch on Changkat and is more expensive. You'll find loads of deals on booze as you move from bar to bar on Changkat, but getting more expensive as the night goes on.

    The Green Man's a good British type pub for a Sunday afternoon pint too.

    Was there a few weeks ago with my son. We went up into the KL tower (1st picture) for their buffet lunch at the revolving restaurant near the top.
    Not only the view was spectacular, I have to say the food was some of the best I've ever had. Indian influenced although the variety was huge. (maybe I just enjoyed the Indian dishes and went back for more of it) Also, there were about 12 different desserts. I had one of each and couldn't believe they were ALL GOOD! A bit pricey but well worth it IMO. Beautiful city.

    Healy Macs became my haunt of choice. The beer offering is the obvious attraction but the grub was also wholesome and diverse.
    A short walk from the nearby overhead rail station and close to the towers and other hostelries.

    Nothing like a good olde faux Irish pub for the ardent traveller.

    Healy Macs is a chain that's found throughout Malaysia and there are 3 or 4 in KL alone (the one you're referring to is near the Beach Club on Jalan P Ramlee).

    They tend to be massively overpriced and the food is anything but wholesome and diverse. It's like a bad Irish themed Wetherspoons.

    Each to their own though.

    Edit: Dill has had the "pleasure" too.

    ^ yep there’s one in Straits Quay, Penang.
    Always frequented by the same old retired croneys paying well over the odds(as if beer isn’t expensive enough in Malaysia)
    The Sunday Dinner’s terrible. They haven’t a clue how to make a Yorkshire pudding and the beef is a rib eye sliced in half and tough as one of Switch’s old army boots

    Good for watching rugby and cricket though,if you don’t mind being surrounded by folk like seeking assylum
