Kuala Lumpur Petronas Towers sunset timelapse

No we’re not back in Kuala Lumpur. Matt has found a spare 5 mins for creating time-lapsing goodness. Here’s one from the Skybar, Trader’s Hotel at sunset.

Day 99 – Tuesday 21st December – Pangkor to KL to Phuket

Another mental journey planned by us. Instead of going overland up to Krabi we decided to fly to Phuket from Kuala Lumpur. So we could get the 30-day visa instead of the 15-day visa. (For some reason there is a difference in Thailand depending on whether you enter overland or via an airport???) Our journey: 7.45am Pink minibus taxi from Telak Nipah to Pangkor Town 8.30am Ferry from Pangkor Town to Lumut...

Day 96 to 98 – Saturday 18th to Monday 20th December – Pulau Pangkor

5 hour bus journey from KL to Lumut further up the coast, caught the last ferry to Pulau Pangkor and arrived at a car park full of baby pink ford rascal minibuses. The taxi dropped us off in Telak Nipah, the most budget bit of the island and we went to our selected B&B to ask for room. Sorry full. Next one. Sorry full. Next one…and so on until we’d exhausted every guest house & hotel in Telak Nipah....

Day 95 – Friday 17th December – Kuala Lumpur

Matt got up at dawn to go find the perfect view of the Petronas towers and came back 3 hours later with his sunrise timelapse from the KLCC park and was knackered so snoozed whilst I trawled the internet for ideas on what to do for Christmas. So many places to decide on. Found cheap flights to Bali but does it make sense to go that way or should we head overland through Malaysia and up to Thailand....

Day 94 – Thursday 16th December – Melaka to Kuala Lumpur

More dim sum yum. Extra this time. Felt like pigs but the food here is lush. Sam from Jalan Jalan was brilliant in advising us to walk to the bottom of Chinatown instead of the top to catch the local bus to the bus station. I’d read that it could take an hour from the square but it took less than 10 mins from the other end. Fab. We always seem to travel with our backpacks when the sun is hottest and today was particularly muggy and humid inbetween the rain showers....

Day 92 & 93 – Tuesday 14th to Wednesday 15th December – Melaka, Malaysia

Tuesday 14th December and we have been travelling for exactly 3 months and we’re now in Malaysia. Can’t believe how fast the time is going. Took a lovely luxury bus from Singapore to Melaka. The border crossings were simple. Off the bus at one side of the bridge to exit Singapore and get our passport stamped. Then off the bus again the other side of the bridge to get our entry to Malaysia....
