In Malaysia I visited Kuala Lumpur, a cool and developed city that I enjoyed a lot. My first goal was to visit the awesome Petronas Twin Towers, one of the city's most well-known landmarks (at 452 metres in height, the towers were the tallest buildings in the world between 1998 and 2004). The view of the nicely lit towers at night is just fascinating. Get a ticket to check out the skybridge connecting the two towers and then enjoy the view of the city from the top (you need to book well in advance as the number of spots is limited).

Another fascinating spot located close to Kuala Lumpur is Batu Caves, one of the most popular Tamil shrines outside of India. This place is indeed special with the 42 metre tall golden statue of Lord Murugan, the 272 steps needed to access the main cave, beautiful shrines and decorations inside the cave, as well as a good number of mischevious monkeys all around. Batu Caves can easily be accessed by train from Kuala Lumpur. After visiting the main cave, don't miss the Art Gallery Cave located at the foot of the hill.

Other interesting sites in Kuala Lumpur that I enjoyed include the Jalan Alor night market, Merdeka Square, Central Market and Aquaria KLCC. The food in Malaysia was outstanding, just like in other countries of SE Asia (don't miss the national dish, Nasi Lemak).
