I only stayed in KL for three days, I should have planned to stay longer. It's a lot like Hong Kong, only much friendlier. It's mainly Muslim, yet cosmopolitan, it has a bustling city centre, but also a great Chinatown and Little India - plus almost everyone speaks English!

I visited the KL Tower for great views of the city, and take the Sky-bridge tour at the twin Petronas Towers - the latter looks incredible lit up after dusk.

I was in KL during Ramadan and found it strangely amusing watching the locals break their fast in McDonalds...
