Kuala Lumpur is a great city. It's all that useful I wanted to tell you about Kuala Lumpur, and now more about useless.

If you think Kuala Lumpur is an expensive city, then at least wrong in one thing – it's expensive, but not everywhere and not all.

Perhaps the most inexpensive Chinatown. I bought a wonderful shirt... 50 rubles. And this is a normal price.

The area is very interesting and original, it is a very picturesque entrance.

Now tourists in Kuala Lumpur hand over the good seats at the rate of ringgit against us dollar and Thai baht I found the following exchange, perhaps there are better, but beating near and not the nearby banks, I was convinced that to change the money necessary here. This place is right of the gate, which on the previous photo. The exchanger in the middle :


This is the everyday life of Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur

But Chinatown is not always what it may seem occasional tourist.

In the morning he was like,

Closer to the dinner like this:

Closer to the evening like this:

The last three pictures shot from the same point at different times of the day.

But there is one place close to Chinatown, where Souvenirs are even cheaper and their selection is huge. If you want to buy Souvenirs, of course. Central Market. The sellers hang signs No Cameras – as if guarding a secret government facility.

Still there can be a good civilized way to eat. The prices do not bite – to me they seemed quite a bit higher than in Thailand.

Next to the street. Pushkinskaya in Rostov or the Arbat in Moscow. Well, just a very poor version of their

If you need cheap equipment in Kuala Lumpur, it is you in Low Yat Plaza. But in fact there is not really that bad and cheap. Went traded for less iPad 22000 rubles did not work for 16 GB model. Was hoping for a great similarity with the American prices. Camera down for about the same price as in Bangkok, but given that Malaysia is no 7 cent tax. More expensive models significantly cheaper, but checked only on one model.

Rain here – it's time to try the monorail. A ticket for the monorail costs the same as subway, but had to buy a cashier, as a machine at the station is not found.

But it was the reference machine from which I found that value on the next station 1.2 ringgit (12 rubles), and on any of the following 1,6 ringgit (16), which is a strange way of pricing.

But the place – almost like in Moscow metro, unless all the civilized and there are special people that monitor the occupancy of the train. By the way, unlike metro – monorail have a driver.

And here is the information for drivers about where the tubes (inaccurate, can anyone clarify)

But it was the living machine, and like you the graveyard of cars and motorcycles!? "That's tough!" – I blurted out the words were true in the literal and figurative sense

Generally it would be necessary to say that Malaysia is like obsessed with football – before the start of South Africa world Cup and they were covered with football fever, but as the national team of Malaysia is not particularly shines on the world stage, Malaysians are paraphernalia of other teams. Every self-respecting shop has a area here:

In connection with football fever in the evening, it was decided to look at the stadium Merdeka, where disgracefully playing for the national team of Malaysia, but there was a repair, apparently in connection with the world Championship decided to patch up the arena:

Not particularly upset, not at the Nou camp did not hit.

There are several variants,but in any case the route you have to be on their own. Here in a nutshell information:
From Pattaya you need to get into Satun (city in the South of Thailand), and from there by ferry or drive to Kuala Kedah or Kuala Perlis in Malaysia already.
I would prefer the first option, Satun, as passed through twice, it was fine. To Satun from Pattaya can be reached with a stopover in Bangkok. Travel from Bangkok to the southern bus station and there change to the bus to Satun. Previously, these buses were a lot, now looked up the schedule, there are very few, maybe just schedule them there. But even then that is quite suitable, it is night, will arrive in Satun in the morning and in the afternoon we will depart on the ferry. Basically about Satun all we've got painted -
The second option is via Kuala Kedah or Kuala Perlis. If by bus, you must first get from Bangkok to hat Yai (, and from there to Kuala Kedah or Kuala Perlis as you prefer, and then onto the ferry. According to this embodiment can be on the train ride.

Honestly, difficult to answer, after all this is a very controversial status without citizenship. It can at passport control not to pay attention to it, and the place of issuance of the passport to put the visa for 90 days as a citizen of Estonia, and can not supply a visa and even do not give, because there is in fact a list of countries that require a visa and persons without citizenship there is clearly no. Try to call the Embassy in Moscow, and even better to write them a letter at least e-mail to answer on paper just in case. And if not difficult, then let me know what happened. ...
