Once in a while when you travel, you come across a sight that just defies your senses. Malaysia has done it with the lofty heights of the Twin Towers. They dominate the skyline-well that is an under-statement. At night they are towering jewels that the mind conceive as something surreal. In fact, the city comes alive with lights-take a look.

The taxis driver need to be negotiated with for a fair price. Occasionally you will find one who speaks pretty good English and is helpful and is part tour guide. A night city tour can be negotiated and the driver will take you to see some of these spectacular sights. If you are a photography buff, you might be in seventh-heaven.

This place was a complete surprise, and the trip was more like a magical mystery tour. The wise taxi driver did not let on to exactly what was coming next, instead just hinted that the sights would be something special. It was like being a kid in a photographical candy store.

Sunway Pyramid Hotel West was more than just eye-catching and it is a tough call to say whether the Twin Towers or the Hotel was the greatest show-stopper. The hotel has a 4 star rating and the rooms are modern and stylish. Located only 35 minutes from KL International Airport, you can catch a train or taxi or bus once you arrive. You can relax there and surf the worlds largest manmade beach without going anywhere-want to hear that again?

If you want to see modern shopping malls, Malaysia's best include Bukit Bintang and the Twin Towers Mall. If you want a quiet place to shop and less people, try Sunway Putra Mall. The hotel is a bright and stunning the rooms are neat and comfortable. The service with a smile with a complimentary drink exotic fruit drink upon arrival. Try the sea food restaurant immediately out the hotel door and in the first door to the mall. They serve a fresh mix of local seafood delights on a patter, it is great value and comes with a mix of condiments-coupled with the fresh fruit drinks, it will make a memorable meal.

Food and transport is very cheap by western standards, and if you love spicy food, there's plenty of it. The malls present the cleanest and most modern cuisines, but good finds can be made on smaller streets with fresh fruit and vegetables making dining experiences a fiesta for the palette.

KL Tower another stunning sight

Kuala Lumpur Tower must be the best looking communication tower you could think of and at night was adored by the trees with lights in the gardens of Bukit Nanas, which in English is Pineapple Hill. The lofty heights of the Twin Towers and Communication Tower can only be felt when they dwarf your soul and shine brilliantly against the night sky.

The Holy month of Ramadan is followed by celebrations and the decorations around Kuala Lumpur are worth seeing. The 9 month lunar calendar means that Ramamdan commences on a different month each year on Western calendars.

Air Asia and Royal Brunei Airlines are the 2 main carriers providing flights to Kuala Lumpur. There is a difference in price and basically you get what you pay for. The flight is around 8 hours, so take a book, magazine or tablet and catch up on some reading, movies or like. They are many more attractions and some will be covered soon.

What fantastic photographs and a virtual reality tour of Kuala Lumpur. My son and family arrived there yesterday as part of their son's graduation present of 13 years of public schooling (HSC in 2018). I have forwarded this information to them. They have been to Malaysia before, briefly in KL but spent a family holiday in Penang a few years ago. Singapore is where they were the first week of their two week stay this time. I look forward to seeing their panoramic images.

reasons to go to Malaysia - great food, and air-conditioned hotels to avoid the heat of the day !

I'm remembering flash hotels with flash breakfast buffet with tropical fruits and all manner of 5 star luxury treats, so yes some definite memorable pleasures there
