Our day in Port Klang (Kuala Lumpur)

Today we would be short on packing time so we decided to take a ships tour to Kuala Lumpur, which turned out to be an hour and a half plus, from the cruise terminal!

AS it turned our we had a very knowledge and experienced Christian Lady for our tour guide. A rarity in a mainly Muslim country. She gave our group great insight into the country of Malaysia.

Our first stop was at the magnificent Palace of the current King

With beautiful women and horses ….

….. and flowers

Our next stop was to a war memorial dedicated to 200,000 Australian solders who courageously fought the Japanese and their invasion of Malaysia.

Magnificent porticos ….

These brave men are remembered every year, in this beautiful setting.

Our final stop, after a short stop at the National Mosque, was to the twin towers that grace this city.

The trip back to the port seemed to take forever, and it was obvious, with all the activity there that another cruise ship had arrived while we were gone.

To paraphrase Crocodile Dundee ….. that ain’t no cruise ship, that’s a hotel!

That’s a cruise ship!!!

That’s it for now …. next report will be from “snowmageddon”!

  1. As your cruise has come to an end. I would like to thank you for the photo’s. Enjoyed viewing the part of the trip we didn’t take on this cruise. Safe travels home to two wonderful people. “Barbara & Jack” -Enjoyed meeting you two. Until the next adventure! -All the Best -Ruth & Larry

  2. I totally enjoyed your commentary, musings, and photos throughout your voyage. Thank you for taking the time to post about it all. Signed, a couch potato fan.

  3. Thank you Jack and Barbara. I’ve enjoyed your trip immensely and your flower photos. You’ll have to check out the wall of bougainvillea at City Hall here at home (when it blooms this summer). Meanwhile, dress warm.

  4. An amazing post at the end of an amazing journey, Jack! Kuala Lumpur was my “home” for a month in the late 1980s, when I was assigned there as a Special Naval Attache to coordinate Malaysian Navy and U.S. Navy operations…culminating in a 30-ship, 9,000-man two-week at-sea exercise after my incredible stay in “KL”. You sure brought back the memories!

    Wishing you and Barbara safe travels on the long journey back home….

    Warmest Regards, Shipmate!
