After breakfast it was time to head to the docks for a boat back to the mainland.

Ferry to the mainland

Kuala Lumpur

Instead of flying, I booked a train to Malaysia's capital city, Kuala Lumpur, today.

Tickets were pre-booked, and from the ferry terminal on the mainland, there was a nice covered walkway directly to the train station.

This turned out to be quite helpful, as I managed to plan a travel day on what would be the only day on my entire trip where it rained all day.

The train was modern, and it was a smooth ride to Kuala Lumpur; and my hotel was within walking distance of the train station, which was very convenient.

City Centre

My hotel was located in the city center, and in the evening, I ventured out to explore the area.

Looking for dinner, I stumbled on this super cool book store in this old theatre called "REXKL."

In front of REXKL stood a silver airstream trailer with a Bao Bun shop inside.

The next day it was time to explore Kuala Lumpur properly, and you have to start with the Petronas Towers

There's some interesting architecture about, such as this submarine-inspired building.

The next day I explored a museum and some shopping malls to do some last-minute shopping, but not before delicious breakfast.

For dinner I walked the street market in front of the hotel. Not the most healty option, but definitely the most delicous.
