Thanks to a certain running enthusiast, I had the privilege of attending the Standard Chartered Kuala Lumpur Marathon on 21 May 2017. We had to be at the starting point by 4am for the race.
People from all walks of life, all sizes, shapes and ages were taking part in the 42km, 21km, 10km or 5km run. It was relatively well organized with many volunteers and helpers making sure that this event was a success. And indeed it was! No surprises that the top 3 male runners were from Kenya and the wining time was 02:18:42.60 set by COSMAS MATOLO MUTETI. Pretty amazing feat I must admit.
A trip in KL wouldn’t be complete without visiting the Petronas Twin Towers. So…here’s my top 3 recommendations for a bird’s eye view of the iconic building.
- Trader’s Hotel Skybar
- Helipad’s Helibar
- Any other hotels/buildings around it
Time your visit around 5.30pm to catch a beautiful sunset, enjoy a cocktail or two and stay a few hours or so to watch the musical fountain and twin towers light up.
Enjoy this short video of my KL trip 🙂
