Kuala Lumpur: From Sepang to the 33rd Floor High Sky Bar

The Sepang International Circuit gave the much needed adrenaline rush but we had some down time by the sea when we had our lunch at the Golden Palm Tree Resort at the Sepang Goldcoast. It’s a beautiful 5-star resort ran by the Swiss-Belhotel group. Its stilt-house like accommodations is eye-catching but what caught my attention was the tasteful lunch buffet they had from the Indian Tandoori to the delectable desserts. It gave enough fuel for our Go Kart Race before heading back to Kuala Lumpur.

The Petronas Twin Towers is like a familiar friend now having seen it several times. But like some people there are always new sides to discover. Like the park which I haven’t set foot before. Watching kid’s play, even parents alongside kids exercising captures a slice of life of the Malaysians.

A Walk in Merdeka Square is usually included in any Tourist itinerary since it’s an important Independence landmark for Malaysia, and being there for the nth time was okay but I think the lighting at that time was a lot ideal. Unfortunately, there were constructions being done at the beautiful Sultan Abdul Samad Building.

Hawker dinner at Jalan Alor was tasty and filling. It was also close to where we are staying at Bukit Bintang that we managed to do squeeze a time to shop. For me it was the overwhelming electronics mall shop Low Yat. I got out with a purchase in hand and a grin on my face. Our hotel Park Royal was also a walking distance from the malls. Going back, we had enough time to prepare for the cap-off activity for the whole tour.

It was pre-Halloween evening and I was amused to see three storm troopers at the lobby of Traders Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. People in costumes are always amusing to see. We were headed to the 33rd floor for the Sky Bar for a chilling session.

Sky Bar is a really cool looking bar with a pool at the centre and the lounge tables and chairs is against a stunning backdrop of Kuala Lumpur Skyline. It’s definitely one of the places to see the Petronas Towers in a different perspective. The crowd was definitely chilling. Since it’s a Halloween night, there were angels and devils grinding on the dance floor.

There were free servings of bloody fingers and eyeballs. We had a few finger foods while I had a beer and tasted some mixed drinks while the few from the group went to the dance floor for some fun. It was a great way to end our tour. It may be short but it sure was fun.
