Photos: Kuala Lumpur city walk

Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia was our first stop immediately after our travels in the Middle East and for me also the first time ever in South-East Asia, that’s why I was really keen to see how it looks and feels and whether it’s different from what I’d imagined.

Of course, there’s no better way to see a city than on foot (ok, perhaps a motorbike comes close but that’s not the point right now) and that’s what we did. The walk, with little elements of train riding, turned out to be really easy to do and the city itself quite busy and modern.

KL with its sky scrapers and the iconic Petronas Towers can also surprise you when you head to areas like Little India or Chinatown right next door, where the respective communities have set up base and you can literally get bollywood music and dimsums under the same roof. The refreshing harmony with which all the different cultures – Malay, Chinese, Indian mingle with each other is really something!

Here are some of the photos we took on our walk. Hope you’ll enjoy their Polaroid look!
