We arrived 10 minutes early at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). Baggage was on the baggage reclaim after 10 minutes of waiting and the immigration line was very short so we got out of the airport quickly. Our hotel driver welcomed us and showed us the car, we used to get to out hotel. Due to some traffic jams the ride from the airport to the hotel took us arround 1 hour.
After a bit of resting in our room we started to look for our dinner in the city (arround Bukit Pentang) and included this in a short city sightseeing tour. We passed by several skyscrapers. It's a great experience to walk arround in this bustling city. On the one hand you have many things which are the same in Austria (Europe) but on the other hand you have completely different things (the people here are much more friendly than you can imagine in Europe).
While crossing arround the city, we found an Indonesian restaurant which offered quite good food for no money (2 persons incl. drinks --> EUR 10,-). After our dinner we went back to our hotel on foot.
Tomorrow we're going to go to the Batu Caves, 12 km north of the city and to the Menara KL Tower (TV tower).
