First impressions of Kuala Lumpur and Malaysia

We flew to Kuala Lumpur – the capital of Malaysia and having already left the plane immediately became clear – this is not Thailand, it is completely different country, although they are in the same climatic zone and border together. Sometimes it becomes interesting, as the two close located countries can develop in different ways. We had a lot planned, so in this and subsequent Articles will be a lot of photos of Kuala Lumpur, as well as the answer to the question worth seeing in Kuala Lumpur.

So, what becomes noticeable first thing? Right that Muslim country. Women are wrapped from head to toe in their hijabs, although roast is unimaginable. And men are not at all Thai appearance and with dark skin color. Immediately I remembered Egypt and Turkey with their traditions. So it was hard to surprise us.

A little later, after wandering around the city, it becomes clear that in addition to Muslims, there are also enough people of other religions. And in general It does not seem that I got into a completely Muslim the country, although judging by Wikipedia, the majority is still adheres to this particular religion.

A bus from KLIA airport takes us straight to the city center. – KL Sentral. After getting out of a heavily conditioned spaces are suddenly full of heat and it seems that there is nothing to breathe altogether. And the humidity is such that you start looking around, and not in whether the pool is located. The sun blinds so that I envied the lens on which the polarizing filter was wound.

Having got used a little, the glance starts to slide on the wall the nearest building, and rises higher and higher and rests on the sky and clouds. After all, somewhere there is a mirrored roof of a skyscraper, and as its not less high neighbors. When watching be careful, you can fall on your back. I have never been to America but judging by the photos, there are the same tall buildings. Only here warmer a little, and women are a little more conservative.

We settled in a terrible hotel. Well, he probably in terms of the ratio of price and quality is normal, but for a long time it is it was difficult, which in general we did not do. Blame it on me I think there was no window. This is quite a frequent occurrence for of cheap hotels in Kuala Lumpur in Chinatown (Chinatown). Indeed, why is it necessary if you come only to please your mortal body a few hours of sleep. And everything is nothing, yes only we washed the things on the first day, and they only dried to our departure, here is such a 100% humidity.

And then there were walks around the city and happiness in the form of sidewalks. Well how nice it is to walk on the road intended only for you, not look around expecting another biker to knock you down and not tack on the road flow. If you walked in Thailand, then you are me will understand. In addition, often met squares with benches and parks, which also has.

Perdelok-skutor here, too much less. Less noise and cleaner air. And although Kuala Lumpur is a big metropolis, it seemed to us quite clean. By the way, motorcyclists drive here. inside out. Well, more precisely, the jacket is dressed backwards, and lightning back. Apparently, not so much blew (freeze they are afraid – only 35 in the shade), and so that the dirt doesn’t fly so much. AND Why do not Thais do this? The problems should be the same.

I would also like to note that in addition to the increased standard of living and technology, prices in Kula-Lumpur are also increased, compared to the same Thailand (about 2 times the difference). So we had a little roll lip and in terms of the hotel, and in terms of food.

Yes, I completely forgot about palm trees! They are here everywhere, at every turn, like we have birch. Large such, high, and with thick trunks. Bananas just do not have enough with coconuts on them. And the whole countryside palm plantation fields. They are still seen from the window of the plane – a bunch small green hedgehogs.
