In the space of just under 24 hours it seems like we've been transported to another world.

As we left home on the first day of the new year a cold wind howled, the rain poured almost vertical and the sky was a dark slate grey colour.

At 3.30pm on the second day we were sat on a bus backing out of Kuala Lumpur International Airport bus station. Instantly we felt the warmth from the sunshine through the bus window. Instead of watching bare forlorn looking trees as we passed by, as we had done in England, rows of palm trees made a beautiful backdrop against a deep blue sky.

At last we've escaped the British winter!!

We grabbed some breakfast on a rooftop cafe before making our way on the monorail to the Petronis Towers.Unfortunately all tickets to go op to the sky bride today had been sold so we had to be content to explore the grounds around it but they were well worth a visit.

As we ate lunch later back in China Town the sun disappeared and a clap of thunder rolled across the sky, within minutes the heavens opened. We sheltered for an hour before braving it back to our hotel on a very slippery pavement but thankfully got there dry.
