It's time for me (Rob) to start doing the blog as I haven't done any since South Africa.
After a 5 hour flight, and a 1 hour bus journey we arrived at the Equatorial Hotel in the centre of the city on a hot and humid evening. We went for a walk around the local area ending up near the Petronas Twin Towers before eating at TGI Fridays near the hotel (Jen wanted a change from rice or noodles).
The next day went went for a 3-4 hour walk through the shopping area of Bukit Bintang, and round to the Golden Triangle. As we neared the Maybank Museum building the sun turned to rain. As the rain got heavier we sheltered for 15 mins before giving up and continuing to walk. The rain was so heavy the roads become flooded so we returned to the hotel to dry off. The flooding soon drained away and we walked around the KLCC Park area before stopping at a bar for beer. That evening we ate at a Malaysian street bar in Bukit Bintang.
On the way back via the KL Tower again, we decided to walk the main trail through the Bukit Nanas Rain Forest. I can recommend this, some of the stairs are very steep and it's very hot work. There are a number of trails off the main path that we didn't do as we had to be at the airport at 3pm.
