Kerrie and Emily had a great two weeks back in Kuala Lumpur catching up with friends and revisiting loved sites in Kuala Lumpur. The focus for Kerrie was largely Molly’s’ Graduation and 18th Birthday while for Emily it was a chance to reconnect with her old school friends – not that she is disconnected given her many weekends on Skype and Social Media over the past 6 months.
On their last evening in KL, good friends Kerry, Mark and Baby James came into KLCC for a wander around the KLCC Park and an early dinner. Although a large section of the park is under renovation it is still worth a wander through the tropical landscape which is right in the heart of KL and part of the overall KLCC and Twin-Towers development.
The park has a huge fountain and associated water area which weaves its way around most of the park and eventually into a children’s pool and waterfall in the middle. The fountain is famous for its light and water show at night but during the day the pool is the place to go. But warning you need a child with you to be allowed in and so luckily we had Baby James, albeit accompanied by us 6 taller children
It was funny to see another couple chased out of the water by a security guard with an over active high pitch whistle.
I found a still part of the water area and managed to get some interesting reflective shots of the Twin Towers.
A walk to the far end of the park is worth it just to get some great photos of the Twin Towers. You will often see bus loads of tourists just stopping at the far end of the park for photos alone.
When you are done and hot and bothered by the walk it is then the thing to finish off at the Traders Hotel Sky Bar. The view is fantastic. With recent developments there are now also great views from Thirty8 at the Hyatt or Marini’s at Petronas Tower 3, but the Traders Sky Bar is the original and classic bar view.
