Today went to the Templer’s Park Waterfall. A national park for recreation. Its very nice, lots of monkey’s walking around and you can go into the water. They build some sort of walls so the water will not flow away directly.
Here the collection of this nice area:
Today i went to Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur with a friend. He showed me some nice temples. There was one Chinese temple… Very old, it doesn’t look like the temples we mostly known. Was so nice he showed me this! And we had a lunch in a restaurant, most people will think: Are you gonna eat there? YES i do, and it was delicious what we ordered.
There the images in order: Chinatown market, Lunchtime, Sri Mahamariamman Temple, Grandi Temple, A shop to get spices and the wonderful Sze Yah Temple.
Here a 360° tour of the Ramayana Cave. Be patient. The file is 16Mb in size.
And today we did a Country Side Tour. Actually it was visiting Buta Cave and Royal Selangor Factory. From the last one i didn’t make images. It was so interesting what guide told me i was forgotten to make them… Finally the driver showed me a Chinese Temple. A nice one!
Some nice images in 360° of the Square in front of King’s Palace in Kuala Lumpur
Yesterday had my first tour with a personal driver. He tell me all the stories and bring me to the locations for that day. This guy is awesome! First he told me why all the girls walk like chickens. Because KFC is most favorite food in Malaysia now. And yes, when you look around lot of KFC advertising. But beside that he had also lot of interesting information of the locations. This guy works already 40 years in tourism as driver. I not gonna tell everything of the images.
- King’s Palace
- World War II Monument
- Independence Square (Merdeka Square)
- City Gallery (I LOVE KL)
- Chocolate tasting
2 x 5 Images ( -2, -1, 0, +1, +2) to create this Vectorama HDR version of the towers. Create the 2 HDR versions of he 2 images in AroraHDR and combine the 2 end results into AutoPano to stitch them together. Fine-tune the image in Lightroom.
Its funny to see lots of images on internet from the back of the Petronas Towers. A local told me that this view is actual the front of the building. Enjoy the view…
In Kuala Lumpur centre there are lots of shopping malls!! Suria KLCC, Avenue K, Pavilion KL, Starhill, Fahrenheit 88, Lot 10, Plaza Bukit Bintang, Plaza Sungei Wang and Plaza Low Yat. Last one is a computer mall.
From Suria KLCC you walk true the park and go into the Exhibition building so you will reach the SkyBridge. Or from Suria KLCC follow signs Aquaria KLCC and you will reach the finally the SkyBridge as well. This SkyBridge is a bridge you can walk all the way to Pavilion KL without busy roads to cross over. From there follow the Jalan Bukit Bintang and all the shops are on the left hand.
Here a wonderful view of the Petronas Towers at night. It had a magic feeling when you stand there and those 2 towers lighted up. I felt small, tiny, in a big world.
If you want shop until you drop… Goto Suria KLCC Shopping mall. A huge area with over 400 shops. Food, drinks, Movie Theater, Directly above KLCC Station and LRT. When you here go outside to see the Petronas Towers.
Here some nice 360° images of this insane big shopping mall:
Yesterday arrived at my hotel “Le Apple Boutique” in Kuala Lumpur. Very nice hotel! And 5 minutes walk from the “Petronas Twin Towers”, 30 seconds from “Avenue K Shopping mall”, 3 minutes from “Suria shopping mall”.
Here my room again in 360° image:
It’s a sad moment. I will leave Patong, Phuket now. Been here for 4 weeks, and within those week i had a good time. Seen lots of culture, lots of new things and most of the time see the beach and feel the sun shine on me… But the day is come that i will fly to Kuala Lumpur now, new destination with new things to explore. I’m also gonna see a friend. Chat with him already sinds juli 2014 and now finally we gonna meet.
Phuket was nice, Patong was busy, lots of tourism but after couple of days you get used to it. Tried many different Thai Food! The people are very kind and will help you where they can do. Sometimes you see tourists who don’t have any respect and thats sad. The people here try to get most out of it for a great holiday for the visitor. And when they don’t get any respect back… makes me sad.
The local people i know now, woman who makes every day a fruit shake at the beach, a guy who makes pancakes with fruit, The guys from the parasol and matt. Called them the 100b guys. A Parasol was 100Bath. Then the 2 friendly persons from the restaurantl. The helpers in FamilyMart. Also the guy from Pharmacy who take me inside at moment i got a blackout on the streets and give me the medicine so im feel great day later already! Thanks for that! Finally… the massage guys. After 4 days told them all i’m gay and goto the gay massage ar “The Royal Paradise” complex. After that they make lot of funny jokes and still scream to me “MASSAGE” with a big smile.
I will gonna miss you all, and all of you asked me if i will come back… After writing this blog i have feeling that it will happen for sure. Thailand, you people have taken my heart and give me a wonderful time
ขอบคุณ (Thanks YOU!)
I walked yesterday morning on the beach, as every morning … Always see tiny crabs running for their life into their holes in the sand. But yesterday saw a crab running to the water, and when the sand is soft he hide himself into the sand. A man walked by and stand his feet directly on the spot where this little crab was hiding himself.
The crab wont come back on surface… At that point i’m was thinking: How many little crabs are hiding for us in the sand, and will die because people walk on the sand as well. Poor little creatures, they try to survive but don’t know that will die anyway. Or they have luck and nobody will stand on the same spot so the crab can go back into the sea when its safe….

This was really a great experience! The guy who did the actual canoeing for us told me that the water around the rocks is 1 meter deep. He showed us also a place where not many people come. He called it “VIP area”. It was very nice!!! less people, lots of great images. The guy called himself “Men” or something like that. Men thank you to show is this beautiful place!
In 1974 the James Bond movie “Man with golden gun” was filmed here. Now a touristic chaos!. But when you look around and find a good spot you can make some nice images and have the feeling you’re alone there. Check for yourself:
Very nice fishing village build on stilts by Indonesian fishermen. Now a touristic attraction. It was nice to see, but not that spectacular.
A wonderful cave with a gold plated buddha is laying and monkey’s walk freely around the area!
You can see some white spots in the image, when you click on it you goto other part of cave. Or click on the red location points on the map!
