Pavilion Mall, KL Tower
In the previous post, we were at KLCC Park and the Petronas Twin Tower. It is a 10 minutes walk from the area to Pavilion mall using the covered overhead airconditioned walkway.
The Pavilion Mall has 6 main districts each serving different needs such as dining, entertainment, home, spa&beauty etc. I was at the Centre Court which featured the below atrium.
There is a interesting watch & clock shop which sells clocks of varying designs. This particular design caught my eye and was very tempted to buy but was put off by the high price.
Other than shopping, the other reason why I'm at Pavilion is for the below dessert shop
Hui Lau Shan (Xu Liu Shan)
Hui Lau Shan is a dessert stall which originated from Hongkong specialising in desserts using fresh fruits as their main ingredients. I love their fresh mango desserts as it is refreshing and not overly sweet.

They also serve other HongKong delicacies such as curry fish balls, rice rolls and radish cakes. I ordered some to try but was not impressed.

After an hour shopping, it was time to leave for the KL Tower. Halfway through the walk, I saw the original Crowne Plaza Kuala Lumpur building being demolished. CPKL was my first of many stay in an IHG hotel. It was one of my most memorable stays and I took a photo of whatever its left for keepsake purposes.

On our way to KL Tower! We took the BTS to Bukit Nanas station and chose to walk the 15minutes stairs route to reach the "summit" where the tower is.
One Of The Many Flight Of Stairs
Halfway through the climb, we reached a resting area with a public toilet, places to seat and many houseflies.
At the end of the rest are, there lies the final flight of stairs to the KL Tower.
Finally, The KL Tower
The place was very crowded and there was no air-conditioning in the common area. We were sweating mad. Another shot of the city centre and we are ready to leave for the hotel.

We returned to the hotel & took comfort in the air-conditioning at the lounge. During the evening, I took a shot of the KL Tower from afar.
