Kuala Lumpur: Part 2

On our first full day in KL, what more could we do to overcome the jet lag than a spot of retail therapy?

We'd heard some good things about Bukit Bintang and so we decided to spend our day basking in some well needed air-con at Pavilion, perusing Sephora with incredible longing (from me) and walking past expensive bars with 'drink 5 pints of Guinness and get a free glass' deals with incredible longing (from Danny).








Finally braving the humidity, we went exploring the area a little more. We'd heard there was a gigantic shopping centre and it didn't take much to find it! It is ginormous!

I present, the world's biggest shopping centre*!


*bold claim made by me.  

Just look at the size of it! 


The 48 storey structure is the ninth largest building in the entire world and houses basically the biggest shopping centre ever, a cinema, offices, a hotel and a leisure centre...

...and is by far the most difficult place to leave. Danny and I spent about 3 hours here with at least 45 minutes of frantically searching for the entrance we came in through only to find blocked up walls at every turn. WHERE DID ALL THE DOORS GO?

This place is something else. It's completely overwhelming and completely mind-blowing.

There's trees, ponds, waterfalls, streets set up like you're walking through Taipei and even an Asian take on Central Park in the form of faux-grass ceilings.

Un. Real.







It would quite honestly take you about 3 days to see this entire place. 

Feeling a little overwhelmed, Danny and I climbed the escalators as far up as we could go to escape the hustle and bustle and found the most incredible views over the city. 







Here in Kuala Lumpur, old meets new, East meets West in such an incredible way. You can't tear your eyes away from the place.

And just when we thought things couldn't get any bigger or better or madder we found a theme park on the 6th floor.

 Welcome to Asia, my friends.


If you also want to marvel at the insaneness of this place, you can find Berjaya Times Square at No.1, Jalan Imbi, 55100 Kuala Lumpur. Well worth a visit for some Asian craziness!
