Kuala Lumpur or just kL for short is a very impressive city. I stayed at the "Paradisio Guesthouse" which where lying in the middle of the Business and entertainment district. The location is good as its right next to the "Bukit Bintang" Monorail station , a short walk to the Petronas Towers and the KLCC park and KL-Tower. There is however LOTS of people offering you a "massage" which really means a short massage and when they are finished they ask you if they should go "boom boom" , or sometimes even ask that in the beginning. There even was a massage parlor just beneath our Guesthouse (Hostel-style) and we entered through the same entrance where they sat for around 12-14hours a day offering people massages wearing full makeup and all.
The first day i arrived really early at around 4AM , left my bags at the hostel and went out exploring the KLCC.
After wandering around the KLCC and catching the sunset i went to the Petronas Towers to wait in line for the free tickets. People had warned me about this and that i would waste half a day doing it , but I decided to go afterall. When i got there aroung 7:30 (1 hour before opening) the place was packed. I entered and waited in line.... After a while I met Rawi and Pu which was also going to the F1 later that day and after seeing the morning tickets being ripped away and that we could only get tickets for the afternoon we ditched the Petronas and went to the KL-Tower instead since we then had to choose between the F1 and the Petronas.
Then I went to Sepang to view the F1-game. Met up with Ravi and Pu including their friends and saw the race from "C2 Hillstand" For 200ringit its a good price because its in a corner and we saw a lot of overtakes in our corner and even a crash.
The next day I met Gabe and Steve and we just partied for three whole days in KL while checking out Chinatown , KLCC , A mosque and the Batu Caves. All of these things are worth doing.
