Asia with a western touch
Kuala Lumpur is an Asian tiger that roars: in almost 150 years, it has grown from nothing to a modern, bustling city. Take in its high-flying triumphs from the viewing deck of one of the world's tallest buildings, then dive down to explore its more traditional culture in the back lanes of Chinatown.
coming from hytchai south of Thailand, you can easily catch a bus heading to Kuala lumpur. last bus is 18:00. ask for hytchai bus terminal.
around the bus terminal lots of hostel/guest houses, also place to eat not a problem, lots of street vender selling all type of thai food.
the journey to KL is 10 to 11 hours. as you arrive in kuala lumpur(KL) you'll need to take a bus from the int. bus terminal to downtown. easy!!
Lots of places to stay in KL from nice hotels to hostel. China town has loads of hostel with different prices they are all dorm with 6 to 8 beds! NO break fast inclusive!!
At china town lots to see and buy,there's a mage street right opposite the hostel area where you can buy anything from socks to laptops. good bargain as well!!!
eating in Kl super good, very similar to singapore you go from chinese to indian pretty much every corner and western food as well. but I rather stick to the asian food, because asians don't know how to cook western food, they can copy it, but the taste is horrible! Best place to eat is china town in the evening. where tthe locals put sell all type of malay&chinese food plius a big variety of tropical fruits, fresh juices make right at the spot.
a must is to see the kuala lumpur twin towers, but tell ya something get there ready early around 6:00 to 7:00 am so you can get a ticket! It's a nice view of the whole city!
