Malaysia Vist

Recently I visited Malaysia ( KLM) in transit VISA while going to India from Australia / Sydney. It is really a beautiful scenic place. I have seen most of the beautiful places in 18 hrs of transit. The places I saw National Museum, National Palace, Petronas Towers, National Mosque, Lake Garden,Bird Park, National Monument and PutraJaya (Administrative centre) and all these places are worth to see. I had a plan what to see in Malaysia before I go there, so it was easy for me to cover most of the places in short span (in a cab). The Cab charge was reasonable and I felt cheaper than in Australia.

We can go in shuttle bus (KL Hop - On Hop - Off )also, which takes you through all these places in a circular route. This bus is available for every half an hour. It is easy and reasonable cost to see all these places.
