Kuala Lumpur

We took a cab one morning to Singapore’s border train station for the 8-hour ride to Malaysia’s capital and largest city, Kuala Lumpur. Usually shortened to KL, the bustling city is growing like mad and is home to a large number of expats.

Although north of Singapore, the weather is hotter and more humid than what we experienced in the city state to the south. We’re adjusting, if slowly, but we’re happy that the city is full of so many air conditioned malls.

Our Airbnb host has also acted as our guide. He’s taken us out on several city tours and shown us a lot of places we never would’ve found on our own.

When on our own we’ve made good use of the varied public transport system (L-train, commuter rail, monorail). Here’s some of what we’ve seen around town.
