A quick return to the condo to “refresh” ourselves and our attire and we were heading back to central KL to visit the KL Tower, the 7th tallest freestanding building in the world.
The elevator to the observation deck at 421 metres ( 127 stories) takes just 54 seconds. We, however, went one floor and splurged on a window seat and fabulous buffet dinner at Atmosphere 360, the revolving restaurant. The view was spectacular and the food selection was excellent. Among the varied dishes, the most surprising was the blue rice!
After dinner Ian guided us on a lovely stroll along the new riverfront promenade and adjacent street market.
The rapid pace of development in KL has left few heritage buildings, but the few British administration buildings in the central core are lovely under the lights. The Masjid Jamek Mosque, with pink and white bands on the minarets and three domes was stunning. Also known the Friday Mosque, it was constructed 1907-09 and now sits at the reclaimed convergence of the Klang River and the Gombak River. I tried my best to capture its reflection but photos do not do it justice.
