It took us a while to get off the plane, so we didn't end up catching the KL Ekspres train to KL city until 3:30 pm, arriving in KL at 4 pm. We took a quick taxi ride from the KL Sentral station to the Petronas Towers - still impressively tall even though it was my second visit - then checked with the ticket office to see if we could still go up to the sky bridge. Unfortunately the entire ticket allotment for the day had been sold out, so we couldn't go up.

We had a meal at a food court at a nearby mall, then took a taxi to the KL Tower - it's taller than the Skybridge part of the Petronas Towers anyway - and rode up to the observation deck. The view was great, with storm clouds rolling in over our heads. We looked around a while, then went back downstairs so Simon could use his free F1 Simulator ticket - apparently, the simulator was set too easy and he won.

After a long wait at the base of the tower, we shuttled to the lower entrance and taxied to Central Market. Traffic was bad, so by the time we got there, we had to find the train station to get back to KL Sentral and our return KL Ekspres trip. We had a very brief look in the markets but really didn't have time to actually see anything.

We got back on our plane a little less than 8 hours after landing and collapsed into our seats, looking very forward to being home now!
