Backpacking Malaysia!

It was already 4 am when we arrived Kuala Lumpur by bus. It was a 4-hour ride from Singapore and wow, we were so tired. We all tried to sleep inside the bus but who won’t get uncomfortable? It was all our first time traveling to another country by land and we didn’t know that we have to stop by immigration (there were two stops) so we haven’t really slept much. The tiredness was replaced by laughter, though. We had a funny experience inside the immigration. I guess we were just too sleepy that we ended up doing silly things. Haha!We walked until we get to Chinatown. We went to a hostel where we made reservations too but it was too early to stay in plus they have no vacant rooms. So we walked again until we found a nice place to sleep. It was a Filipina working at the reception area! What a joy to find someone from your country in a foreign country!

Here’s us in Petaling Street. They sell lots of stuff here. We ended up buying souvenirs.

It was I think 272 steps! I never thought I could climb that but I did. My cousins and I did. My mom decided to stay. It was so hot by the way, my nose was peeling from all the sun I’m getting but I love how tan I got from all this traveling.

Here’s us taking a break before climbing all the way up. If you’re all the way there to the top, you can find a cave. Our shots were too dark to post it here but it’s quite something.

I feel like I’m in Rome with all these pigeons surrounding me! I really had fun feeding them. An American tourist gave me some. Quite nice of him.

After that, we traveled to KLCC where the Petronas Tower is. We took a rest at the front of the tower waiting for the night to come. They have fountains there so we excitedly played with it.IMG_9510bw

The breathtaking Petronas Towers! It was so magical. It’s so funny how I always see these places in photos and it’s crazy to think that I’ve actually been there! In real life!

There are many things to do here and many beautiful places to visit that I haven’t been to yet. Check out this post by The Crazy Tourist. I’ll surely do all of those when I go back. I hope soon.

Stay tuned for another adventure! 🙂

    Wow, the Petronas Towers really look spectacular, especially from the angle you took the picture! Your adventure in Malaysia seems so much fun and makes me wish I could travel that far too (I’ve never been to Asia).

    Looks like a really fun trip! It’s so great to go places that you’ve admired in pictures and to see them in real life for yourself, is quite something!

    STUNNING! I wonder how long is that statue? I can’t imagine taking all those stairs but believe me , the motivation comes from somewhere when we’re there. I really wanna go to Malaysia , lucky you.

      Maybe you will someday, who knows? That statue is sooo tall! Haha! The climb to the top was a bit challenging since monkeys are all around you but it was worth it! 😀
