Heading back to the big bustling city couldn’t have been more different to the tranquil life that we had been living for the past few days. Our hotel rooms faced the Petronas Twin Towers perfectly giving us a perfect set up for the New Year fireworks.
The city was rammed as people started gathering in the park for prime viewing spot – though not as good as ours! I finally got the pigs in blankets I’d been craving and after a few drinks we were ready to see in the New Year.
The following day, on what turned out to be one of the busiest days of the Hindu calendar we decided to visit the Batu Caves – One of the largest Hindu temples outside of India! The traffic was horrific and it was so busy but the caves themselves were amazing.
We did a tour inside the largest cave and got to see various species who only live in the caves which is pretty special, and an added bonus that the caves were surrounded by monkeys.
With plenty of markets and monumental slices of cakes it’s been so nice to lead a life of luxury again and it’s going to be a large shock to return to bunk beds and basic living!
On our final full day we started with going up the Petronas Towers to go across the skywalk and up to the top. The building itself is pretty phenomenal and the views of the city are divine and totally worth a trip up.
The evening brought about mums first attempt at street food – I’m sure many of you will be surprised at the sight!
Later did we realise that whilst we were happily sat there we were getting eaten alive by mosquitos!
Here she is with some vegetable noodles!
Our final morning before the airport was spent shopping and lounging by the hotel pool. The past few weeks have been so amazing and it’s been hard to say bye but all good things must come to and end and on to the next adventure!
