I’m a bit behind in photo-sharing. Some where between Kuala Lumpur and my current location of Ninh Binh, Viet Nam, I’ve lost track of time and days and everything is going in fast-forward. It feels like so long ago since Pete and I landed in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for our quick luxury stop over. We caught an early flight to KL (don’t waste time saying Kuala Lumpur, no one does) from Singapore and got through customs.
Bucket list item for Pete: Luxury hotel in downtown KL with an infinity pool. Surprise free fruit tray delivery? We’ll take it.
Our afternoon was spent walking around KLCC Park and sweating profusely. At one point we just sat on a bench, watched kids playing in a wading pool for some time, soaked up the lovely Malaysian afternoon sun, and heard the call-to-prayer over the loud speakers for the first time.
A chill night out in KL led to an early morning planning to fit in anything else we could before our afternoon flight to Penang. We decided the Batu Caves sounded charming. Monkeys! Yes! Let’s go!
See those steps behind us? 272 of those led to the top of the cave, with a large temple inside. The ascent was steep and vicious, fearless monkeys circled around in search for food as we made the climb. This was the day I decided monkeys are disgusting, mean trash creatures.
Don’t even look at them the wrong way. They will come after you.
The view from inside was pretty awesome!
We made it back to downtown and said goodbye to our quick big city stopover. I could see myself exploring KL for longer, but I enjoyed our short stay and was most excited to get to Penang.
