Surrounded by this impressive array of glass and steel buildings, you could be in the commercial hub of many of the worlds developed countries, except the iconic stainless twin towers of the Petronas building, that can be seen from just about any place in the city, make this unmistakeably Kuala Lumpur.
I took my camera on an all-day tour of KL city centre (known to locals as KLCC), followed by Chinatown and Little India – to make a video, which you can find below. I thought that KLCC has the same eclectic mix as Singapore, but somehow has more heart, is less clinical – and a lot less expensive. The people are smiley and welcoming. The food was great and the choice is huge. I loved it. Its a city I will definitely want to come back to after the couple of months I plan to spend next seeing other parts of Malaysia. In fact, on first impressions, KL and its people have struck a chord with me and it is a place I would really like to live in for a few months to get to know it better.
