MEET MALAYSIA- 18 PHOTOS ON WHAT TO DO IN KUALA LUMPUR

After my 2 days trip to Singapore, I visited Kuala Lumpur next. Many people consider Kuala Lumpur  as a boring city. I just had to see for myself if it’s true. I challenged myself to prove them wrong. Malaysia is a country most backpackers skip over or often overlooked by some travelers. But if you have more than 24 hours for your layover, here are 19 photos to inspire you to explore this city.

I had my morning swim feeling my cloud 9 moment!

PETRONAS TWIN TOWERS SCENES

Dubbed as the World’s Tallest Twin Towers. My trip wouldn’t be completed  without seeing this iconic landmark that dominates the KL skyline. A sight to behold!
So this is what it feels  like standing 1,230ft above Kuala Lumpur
