After a few delays and the use of a few squat toilets (not by choice), Team Borneo made it to Kuala Lumpur!
Welcomed by 35 degrees heat in Abu Dhabi at 3am, and then a thunderstorm in Kuala Lumpur we set off in search of some well needed food!
Tuesday saw us have a well needed lie in, and then a stroll to Lake Gardens to view the beautiful orchid garden. However, the monkeys caught our eye more and we were snapping more photos of those than the orchids!! That night we headed to KLCC park and Chinatown for some late night market haggling and the infamous Petronas towers. A visit to the reggae bar afterwards made Bob Marley the coolest person ever.
The third day was a huge tour of Kuala Lumpur! From the batu caves, to Chinese temples, to war memorials, we saw it all with an amazing tour guide! Sweltering in 35 degrees heat was intense though. Tasting the 'king of the fruits' - durian - was an experience alone, and one none of us want to try again I'm sure!!! Now our journey continues on an overnight bus to Perhentian - an island of absolute paradise.
