Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur (aka KL) is the capital and largest city of Malaysia. We landed in KL late in the night and by the time we got to the hotel in Bukit Bintang its almost morning. With just over 2 hours of sleep we head straight to the Petronas towers to visit the sky bridge. Entrance to the sky bridge is free and people start queuing up from 7am. They only allow about 1600 people to go up each day.

kiran chakravadhanula kiranc Kuala Lumpur The towers look very majestic and although its essentially the world headquarters of the Petronas corporation its a major tourist spot. Each tower is 88 floors tall and the sky bridge is on floors 41 and 42. It is as high as tourists can go.

kiran chakravadhanula kiranc Kuala Lumpur The sky bridge is supposedly not attached to the towers, but is instead designed to slide in and out of the towers to prevent it from breaking during high winds.

kiran chakravadhanula kiranc Kuala Lumpur I didn\'t bring my tripod so I get a lot of nice and blurry shots. But I dont miss the tripod, the reflections on the glass from the stores behind  are terrible. Its very difficult to get a decent shot of the KL skyline from here without all the stray light and reflections on the glass
