A Trip to Downtown KL

Having lived in Malaysia for many many years it is always good to reacquaint yourself with the city of Kuala Lumpur so I took a trip by train downtown and wandered with my camera to take in some of the new views around the city centre.

First stop was the Pavilion Shopping Centre which had a number of very attractive and colourful cafes/restaurants on the ground floor. Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, or Pavilion KL, is an award winning shopping centre in the Bukit Bintang city centre of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This shopping centre has 8 shopping precincts and a row of street-front boutiques.

Walking via the pedestrian walkway between Pavilion and the KLCC Convention Centre there were some interesting views of the downtown architecture. The city centre of Kuala Lumpur now has many high rise buildings and a wide variety of interesting architectural styles. The colourful building shown in the centre of the image below is Menara Dion, a 37-storey office tower located on Jalan Sultan Ismail.

There is a long pedestrian tunnel linking the KLCC Convention Centre to Suria, KLCC and this was decorated with some lovely images which made for an interesting backdrop as I experimented capturing some silhouettes of the passing pedestrians.

Suria KLCC is a premier shopping centre that sits beneath the iconic Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur City Centre. It has 6 floors and over 300 flagship stores. In the central foyer there are always interesting displays and this one by Prada exhibited some interesting colours and lines which made for an interesting image.
