KUALA LUMPUR CALLING!


I would love to visit Kuala Lumpur as it is a dream destination!

I first learnt about Kuala Lumpur in School! As a good Quizzer, I knew all the countries and their Capitals! (I still do!) Malaysia's Capital - Kuala Lumpur being no exception!

Later, I saw Kuala Lumpur in the Travel Shows on Television and of course in our Hindi movies. Many Hindi movies have been shot in Kuala Lumpur! 

Being an ardent Travel & Movies fan, I never miss the scenic locales in Hindi movies!

Let me test your memory/knowledge. 
Quiz Question- Name at least one Hindi movie that's shot in Kuala Lumpur.

Any Idea?

Any Clue?

Looks like you were busy staring at the Hero or Heroine to notice the city! 


Anyway, sharing trivia with you! 

Top-of-Mind Recall Answers:
Don- The Chase Begins Again
Don-2
One Two Ka Four
Rowdy Rathore

Ah! Now you remember!

In fact, in Don-2 Shah Rukh Khan is even in a Prison in Kuala Lumpur!
Once, on TV, I watched in awe, the construction of the popular ‘Megastructure’ – The Petronas Twin Towers. The challenge was building the connecting bridge between the two towers with high wind-speeds and other technical issues. Luckily, the engineering brilliance of the architects came up with smart solutions to make the construction a reality!

It is Malaysia’s most famous attraction! Needless to say I want to take many pictures of and with the Petronas Twin Towers!

Apart from the Petronas Twin Towers, some more reasons why Kuala Lumpur is my selection:

Dad’s Wish- Kuala Lumpur features on the top of my Dad’s must-visit place-list! He is very keen and we have been planning to go there! But, plans are yet to be worked out! Action time now!

Location- Kuala Lumpur is situated near India’s East where we reside!

Package-Deals & Special Offers- Affordable deals and offers are readily available to suit the interests of every traveler!

Sights & Attractions- Kuala Lumpur presents both the old & the new. There are landmarks like the King’s Palace, National Monument, National Museum, National Mosque, Sultan Abdul Samad Building etc. 

Genting Highlands- This hill resort is popular. My family and especially my kid will enjoy the rides at the Indoor and Outdoor Theme Park. I will get a feel of the Casino de Genting too!

Legoland- My kid will love a visit and so will I!

Food- Kuala Lumpur offers a large variety of dishes! I can be spoilt for choice!

Shopping- Kuala Lumpur is great for Shopping. It suits the wallets of all travelers! There are amazing ‘Sales’ and discount offers!

Kuala Lumpur’s sights, tastes and smells are tempting me with "sumptuous and delectable food, gorgeous temples, unbelievable shopping, relaxing spas and much much more."
Would so love to visit Kuala Lumpur!
