    I will be traveling in ASIA again soon and will have a two day stop over in Kuala Lumpur and are wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what to see. I notice there is a butterfly and bird park in the city, are they worth a visit?

    Also any good photographic shops that have good prices. I would mainly be interested in Tripods and other hardware not cameras or lenses.

    Any recommendations including places to eat will be appreciated.

    Take a day trip to Malacca to see the historical buildings and for some of the best Peranakan food around

    Robin Wong has some interesting places that he photographs in a regular basis. One of the most fascinating seems to me to be the Batu Caves which looks very photogenic. If I come into a large sum of money I would like to go and visit. Oh well we can dream. LOL

  4. The twin towers, the national mosque, the lake gardens, Chinese temples, Indian temples, old parts of town.

    Two days is probably too short to venture out to Malacca.

    Google "two days in Kuala Lumpur" for ideas.

    Whatever you end up doing, just observing the locals during the day or night going about their everyday business can be a wonderful thing. It captures the essence of the place and there's virtually no effort involved in shooting it all.

    Do not worry about eating at the street food at night, believe me it's fine.

    I have decided to go to the bird park since roaming around Borneo has not netted me any good bird photos, but I have seen many exotic birds, monkeys, elephants etc. Not being a wildlife photographer I was not up to that challenge, but a great experience.

    I must admit I saw some potentially good street shots in Sadakan but did try to take any as I am anything but discrete, but as you say just observing was great
