KL is another huge Asian city that’s a mix of both the ultra-modern and the old traditional lifestyle. It’s home to the world’s tallest buildings, the Petronas towers, made famous in the movie “Entrapment.” The general public can’t go all the way to the top, but there are tours every hour on the sky bridge connecting the two buildings.
I didn’t spend much time in the city…just enough to see the towers, book transport to the Cameron Highlands, and then to wander around the night market’s in Chinatown. It’s getting close to Chinese New Year, so the area is decked out in all sorts of festive decorations.
While I’m sure that there are all sorts of other things to do in town, I’m headed out of here as soon as possible. So far all I’ve seen in Asia is large cities, and that’s not what I’m here for at all! Besides, I’m feeling a little off…I tried taking the anti-malarial drug Larium, but it is reacting very badly with me. I feel like I’m wandering around in a foggy haze, and can’t think straight. I’d read that it doesn’t work with everyone, so I’m guessing I’m one of the few that is true of. It’s a once a week pill, so hopefully the effects will fade quickly.
