Also visiting the Batu Caves,Petronas towers and Brickfields and staying at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel for 3 nights.

So, excited? Well,I surely am.

Part 1: Sin-kul on silkair
Part 2: petronas towers

Sit tight!

The flight was almost full though the middle seat on my row remained unoccupied.

Tight Seat Pitch. Not preferable if travelling for 2 hours or more.

Thanks for the real time TR, balajih67!

Nice shot of The Island...I often look down on it as I fly over it and try to spot familiar landmarks...

I have stayed at the Sheraton Imperial quite a few times over the years, though not recently.

Default Attractions and Sights

Continuing on,

That day evening, we visited the Petronas twin towers. A taxi ride to the place cost Rm 10. Its was exciting as this is my first time visiting the twin towers. The ticket includes a 10 minute photo stop at the skybridge(41st floor) and the observation deck at the 86th floor. No big bags, tripods are allowed. No food and drink is allowed either. One lift takes us from ground floor to 83rd floor and another one from 83rd to 86th. Below are the photos from my visit.

JUST REALISED THAT PHOTOBUCKET IS DOWN....

I WILL SOURCE FOR ALTERNATIVES AND UPDATE THE REST SOON.

THANKS
