In the distance we could see both the KL Tower and the Petronas Towers.
This monument was enormous, in fact, it is the world’s tallest bronze freestanding sculpture grouping. It commemorates those who died in Malaysia’s struggle for freedom. Every year on July 31st (Warrior’s Day) the Prime Minister and heads of military and police pay their respects to the fallen heroes by laying garlands at the monument.
Encircled by a pool of water fountains and water lilies, the Tugu Negara is a nice place to spend some time in tranquility. We were two of about 10 people there that day, and it felt very peaceful.
After a very long day out and about in Kuala Lumpur, we were exhausted but we were still eager to see the Petronas Towers lit up at night. We walked around the city for a couple more hours, and found some food. As usual, I wanted Starbucks, so we took in the air conditioned comfort of one of my favorite places, and we refueled. I haven’t got Justin to enjoy coffee yet… but he drinks tea now, so there’s hope 😉
We rejoined the bus route once the sun started to go down. This time we remained on the bus while it did a big loop of the city. When night fell we go off at one of the last stops: The Petronas Towers.
More to come on the Petronas Towers…
