Approaching midnight on the eve of Merdeka, crowds start to form in KLCC park for a big fireworks display. Merdeka celebrates Malaysia’s independence from the British. This was 2007 so the next day would mark the 50 year anniversary.
We only found all this out when we arrived and realised we had to get to the airport that day! Thankfully we had a really early flight and left in a taxi about 6 in the morning, as the entire area around KLCC and the Petronas Towers got closed off just after that. Prince Andrew and Heads of State were staying in our hotel so the whole place got locked down with security, bit of a shock when we came back from dinner!
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
