South Seas Adventure – Part 4

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

For those following our South Seas Adventure, we departed Bali and set sail for Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. As so many travelers from the U. S. discover when traveling to new and developing areas of the world, it often appears we are becoming a third world nation. Kuala Lumpur is one of those places. Construction is everywhere, companies from all over the world are thriving, and the people are working hard and taking pride in their cities and country.

Above are the famous Petronas Towers, the tallest twin towers in the world, and until 2004, the tallest structure in the world. My wife Trisha was very excited to be at the towers and remembered the Sean Connery movie Entrapment that was filmed there.

When we reached the observation level we took dozens of photos. In the photo below you can also see the Kuala Lumpur Tower. We also made a visit to that structure.

Below is one of the many pictures I took from the Kuala Lumpur Tower.

Inside the Petronas Towers was the most spectacular shopping mall we have ever seen. Every high-end store you can imagine is located there. We could not pass up having lunch at one of the many dozens of eateries.

We were treated quite well by the Muslim people we encountered who populate this city and the country of Malaysia, and that influence could be seen in their older government and religious structures.

Interestingly, while touring the city we noticed many parks and beautiful green spaces that were very well maintained. I hope we are able to return again sometime soon.
