We ♥ KL

P1050669

 

KL is an amazingly eclectic and diverse city. A big mish-mash of history, culture and people, full of higgidy-piggidy streets and back alleys with amazing architecture springing out at you from the most unexpected places.

Take for example Sri Maha Mariamman Hindu Temple which we stumbled across as we were walking down the street we were staying on. Bang in the centre of China town and down the road from many Chinese Buddhist temples. See what I mean about a mixture?

Then we found this little beaut, was quite surreal to see. A typically tudor house with cricket green (of course), in KL surrounded by palm trees, a beautiful mosque opposite it and skyscrapers all around. Mind F***!

The architecture varies greatly, one of my favourite buildings we found contrast so greatly, it again, sums up how eclectic this fabulous city is. Art Deco meet Dutch/Roman architecture…some in better conditions than others.

We couldn’t stay in China town without drinking in some Chinese tea houses. So far we have sampled the oldest tea house in KL, street tea sellers and other places a bit more fancy…
