It was sad If I met European tourists, because they had long leave schedule. When they asked to me about my leave duration…. yes, exactly just 12 days ….. I sad…. hahaha.
But I never give up …. with my little time I will be around the world.
Back to time matter …. Every I had short transit when abroad, I often spent time to short exploration to the city that I had transit.
This article also tells how I spent 7 hours in Kuala Lumpur down town between 10:00 – 17:00
1. Batu Caves.
The journey started from 10:30 am from KL Sentral. Using the combination of KTM 1 free bus and Sentul – Batu Caves commuter train.

My trip in Batu Caves Gw was closed by lunch time at Dhivya’s Café – an Indian food stall on the front yard of Batu Caves -. I ate fried rice for 4 Ringgit.
2. Petronas Twin Tower
At 14:42 I arrived at KL Sentral, I was using the same lane and mode of transportation when I was heading for Batu Caves. From KL Sentral I moved with LRT Kelana Jaya Line for 2.4 Ringgit and finally I arrived at KLCC (Kuala Lumpur City Centre). I was out through Ampang Street KLCC Exit Gate. And finally I found Petronas Twin Tower.
The stinging heat of sun required me to took some photos of twin building when clouds were blocking the sun. When clouds have moved avoid the sun then I took shelter under the trees in front yard of twin building. Many tourists saw my oddity…. hahaha

After took some photos of Twin Tower and surrounding landmarks, I immediately moved to Pavillion in Bukit Bintang using GOKL City Bus.
3. Pavillion Bukit Bintang
Using the free GOKL bus, I had opportunity to revisited Pavillion, Bukit Bintang at 16:18. Easter theme made decorations in Pavilion courtyard was very eye-catching.

I was only 20 minutes in Pavilion and I wanted to went to Petaling Street at Pasar Seni soon.
4. Petaling Street
Going to Petaling Street, Pasar Seni, I used again GOKL free bus. On 16:53 I arrived at Pasar Seni terminal.
I just asked to local people around Pasar Seni to showed Petaling Street directions. A middle-aged nicely man pointed to me the way to got there. By walking towards Petaling Street, My eyes swept Pasar Seni situation that had changed better than 2014. In 7 minutes I reached Petaling Street.

Petaling Street didn’t crowded yet because I came there around 5 pm, traders were getting ready with their wares. I just bought keychains here.
And Petaling Street became last destination on this trip. Because I must prepare to flied to Singapore.
