Kuala Lumpur

For Malaysia we decided to do a shore excursion that took us from where we were docked in Port Klang over to Kuala Lumpur by taking a 1 1/2 hour bus ride.

The first stop was the Batu Caves. This place was beautiful, but the best part for me were the monkeys running around everywhere!  The Batu Caves consists of three main caves and a number of smaller ones.  To get to the top you walk up the 272 steps to the top cave where there is a Hindu Shrine.

They took us to visit The Royal Selangor pewter factory. To Independence Square, a square where important events are held. We went up to the observation deck of the world's fourth tallest communication tower, the KL Tower.  Lastly we got to see the magnificent Petronas Twin Towers, the tallest building in the world until 2003.

I fell in total love with this pony in front of the KL tower. 
Also in front of the KL Tower were these awesome birds.
We couldn't resist.  Ended up being a day very full of animals!
Next stop is Thailand!
