From Holland I got catapulted into another world, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Another world in terms of climate, scenery and culture. Apart from the huge Petronas Towers there are no big sights in KL, as Kuala Lumpur is called. But it is a very interesting city to explore with a peculiar mix of high rises, shopping malls, mosques and Taoist temples. KL's inhabitants are from many different ethnic backgrounds. Malay, Chinese, Indian, Thai and Indonesian people all live together in this metropolis. We custom cleared our motorcycles at port Klang in a record time. For a change the procedure went very smooth thanks to our agent Kelvin Kang. After a couple of hours we were rolling into the city to our hotel in Petaling street, KL's China town town.
