Kuala Lumpur

I know I have not been able to update for a long time!!! I'm sorry my dear friends, I was in Kuala Lumpur for a week. The good thing is, will share to you where to stay, where to go, where to eat and where to shop in the cozy little city. :)

It was my husband's vacation leave again and this time, we wanted to see Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Though we had a fun holiday in Kota Kinabalu (Sabah, Malaysia) last year, we wanted to visit the capital this time.

Kuala Lumpur is not that typical hustle and bustle city, we were even surprised how a concrete jungle can be so peaceful (like on the streets, market, almost everywhere) compared to other cities in South East Asia.

Where to Stay:
Bukit Bintang Area (City Centre)

We stayed at Furama Hotel, a Four-star hotel. When we were in Pattaya, Thailand last year  we stayed at Furama. The hotel was really nice so when we found out there was a chain in KL, we directly booked it.

Furama Hotel is very close to shopping malls and restaurants since it is located in Bukit Bintang Area. This photo was taken in our room,  TIMES SQUARE SHOPPING MALL with indoor amusement park.

The very famous revolving tower or KL Tower.
