One thing that made us laugh was the moped riders had their jackets on backwards, we presume because it was too hot to wear them normally but they needed to stop the draft as they rode.

To sum up Kuala Lumpur great city, easy to get around and some good tourist sights to see. The only down side, the humidity, you break out in sweat just thinking about walking around.

Kuala Lumpur airport was very modern and Malaysian airlines one of the best we’ve travelled by. It even had a tail cam so we could watch our take off and landing.

    I always believed they wore their jackets back to front to stop their shirts getting dirty

    Oh no, the humidity was almost unbearable at times but a great place none the less.
    Glad you can still find us on the old atlas.
    Love K & K
