It is mainly because, I have heard so much about this beautiful city which compels me to experience its spectacular views with my own eyes. My hard work did pay off when my father confirmed our airline and hotel reservations there. I have planned everything to make this visit quite memorable.
After leaving the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, I have visited many tourist sights in Kuala Lumpur Architectural, Cultural. The most thrilling experience was in Malaysian Grand Prix where drivers were fighting hard for their destinies. The surrounding air was filled with an immense sense of excitement with people roaring and hooting for their favorite drivers. Meanwhile.
