Back in Kuala Lumpur: Malaysia Asean East Coast Trail Day 5

Previous Post: Kuala Terengganu City Tour: Malaysia Asean East Coast Trail Day 4

I can’t believe we already spent 4 days in Malaysia particularly in the State of Terengganu. It’s amazing how fast time flies by and I didn’t even realize that we are already on our 5th day in Malaysia. As much as we want to stay, we had to leave and go back to Kuala Lumpur for the remainder of our 6 days Malaysia Asean East Coast Trail.

Upon arriving at Kuala Lumpur, we headed straight to Pavilion Kuala Lumpur in Bukit Bintang for an hour of free and easy shopping. Pavilion Kuala Lumpur is a 1.37 mil sq ft retail haven with over 500 outlets offering the finest fashion and home furnishing to entertainment and culinary delights.

My favorite section in Pavilion KL is the Tokyo Street. From its layout, restaurants and Japanese Inspired shops, Tokyo Street simply represents Japan’s dynamic culture and ambience. From Pavilion Mall, we took the foot bridge to reach KLCC for another hour of shopping and picture taking at the Petronas Tower.

Our last stop was at KL Tower for our dinner at the famous Atmosphere 360 restaurant. Before having dinner, we visited the KL Tower’s observation deck. Also known as Menara Kuala Lumpur, The KL Tower is the seventh tallest telecommunication tower in the world.
