KL: One Last Hurrah

And so we end our Borneo Adventures!

Our last day in KL is timed perfectly. Our flight is not until 10 pm, giving us the entire day to tick off some last items on the to-do list.

KL: Wings on Things

A lot of the research we did for KL was about shopping. A lot of shopping.

Don’t get me wrong – it’s great to wander around the markets and some malls, trying to nab a bargain. But when travelling with kids as a family, shopping is not usually a primary focus. For our wildlife adventures, shopping didn’t usually make it in to the top 5.

So it was quite a find when we learnt of the huge bird aviary in the city with a butterfly park nearby as well.

Welcome to KL Butterfly Park and KL Bird Park.

KL:Towers in the Sky

Despite our fantastic location for a hotel (Traders Hotel), it took us a few days before finally going to see the Petronas Towers up close. We had a big afternoon planned with CK to see Bukit Melawati, so a quick visit to the Towers seemed like a good idea. Unfortunately, the Travel Gods deemed otherwise.

KL: Deerlands and Elephants

Sometimes, travel destinations can fit nice and neat into categories. Foodies Dreams. Cultural Experiences. Art and Architecture. Nature and Wildlife.

Sometimes, when travelling with kids, it’s a good idea to seek out the categories and give them a bit of structure. Something tangible for them to associate with.

KL: Batu Caves

KL was the last leg of our Borneo Adventures. And if you think we were starting to ease off on the adventures, you would be grossly mistaken.

There is a lot to do both in and around KL. Most of it you can reach easily with public transport. Some of it you will need a driver or a bit more planning. In our case, with kids involved (and N still not liking the humidity) we opted with a driver for the “out of town” activities.

KL: From One Jungle to Another

We have developed a ‘pattern’ to our travels.

Push it hard for most of the holiday. Live it a bit rough. Sometimes this means “jungle showers”, or dingy guesthouses, or even a tiny little studio apartment – just big enough to drop off the bags because we really are too busy running to the next adventure.

But dang – we like to finish on a high note. The last chance of true holiday leisure, to leave us high on the bliss of travel.
