Two Americans in China in Malaysia!

This week we took a quick little jaunt to Kuala Lumpur. We were really only there for two days, but it was a lot of fun and we look forward to going back.

Our hotel was within walking distance to the Petronas Towers, which were the tallest buildings in the world until 2004 (they are currently the 8th tallest buildings) and were the site of the climax for one of my favorite movies, Entrapment. So we were able to get lots of pictures of the buildings. I have seen many pictures of the buildings over the years, but until I saw them in person, I didn’t realize just how beautiful they are. They have a very art deco style that draws the eyes. I couldn’t stop looking at them.

We also took the obligatory Petronas Tower Selfie, which is a lot harder to do than you would think, especially with a squirmy toddler.

Our hotel was actually a one-room apartment, and we had a fantastic view there too, but it was of the Kuala Lumpur Tower, the 7th tallest building in the world. At night, it was lit up in its own light show that our daughter loved to watch.

Of course we went up into the Petronas Towers, which was really awesome. They have two observation levels. The sky bridge, which connects the two buildings, and the 84th floor. 

It was pretty crazy being up so high, but our daughter has no fear. At least we all got to mark going up in the towers off our bucket lists. I still need to show my husband Entrapment, though.

There is a lot to do around the towers, including a small aquarium, which is one of our daughter’s favorite places to go. It was cute and a good way to kill an hour or two.

We also spent a day at Sunway Lagoon, which is a multi-zone theme park with several water zones and dry ride zones. It was pretty nice, and not crowded at all since it was a Tuesday. We got to see the Paw Patrol, which has been all the rage since this is the Year of the Dog.

And that was about it. The food was amazing, and the city was so clean and efficient. We had a great time and look forward to going back when we can spend more time outside of KL.

What about you? Have you been to Malaysia? What should we put on our Must-Do List for next time?
