Malaysia (Petronas Twin Towers, KLCC Kuala Lumpur) Sept 2018 - Part 1

" My Jalan Jalan (Walkabout) weekend day trip by Rapid KL LRT train from SS15, Subang Jaya to KLCC to visit the Sky Bridge (41st floor) & Observation Deck (86th floor) of Petronas Twin Towers (completed in March 1996) KLCC, an iconic landmark of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia  on Sunday 30th Sept 2018 - another iconic experience for me after towering my way up to the top of this magnificent building in my home country ! "

Kuala Lumpur has 7 architectural landmarks you should visit. For the last 2 years, I was able to visit each of them during my spare time using public transport when not travelling overseas. The 7 architectural landmarks are:

- Petronas Twin Towers, KLCC
- KL Tower / Menara KL
- Bangunan Sultan Abdul Samad (Merdeka Square) 
- Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA)
- Lord Murugan Statute, Batu Caves
- Istana Budaya (Cultural Palace)

Happy travelling & enjoy every moment of your stay in Malaysia. Selamat Datang (Welcome) to Malaysia.
