Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

What Lonely Planet said: Imagine a city, its skyline punctuated by minarets, Mogul domes and skyscrapers, its colourful, food-stall-lined streets shaded by a leafy canopy of banyan and rain trees.

I was there: Every now and then :)

Cameras used: Canon EOS 40D, Sony Cybershot W230, LG Nexus 5

I was fortunate enough to attend one featuring Deadmau5!

The concert coincided with my birthday!

Deadmau5 FTW

Kuala Lumpur is multi-cultural with a large population of Indians

There are several monkeys on the way up to the caves
