48 hrs in Kuala Lumpur With Kids--What To Do

We’re not usually fans of big cities due to the faster pace, increased traffic and higher cost of accommodation.  On the other hand, cities can also offer interesting opportunities not readily available elsewhere.  So we consciously chose to have a 48hr stop over in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to seek out some things to do with the kids and came up with more than we actually had time for!  What did we get up to?

How We Managed To Fly With Carry On Bags Only

We’re off again on another trip to SEA, this time for 17 nights.  While we have always travelled fairly light on our past smaller trips, we still used to check 1 bag at 15kg and then carry on a day bag each plus a handbag/camera bag.  As we tend to take budget carriers, checked bags also have an extra charge.  But on our last trip that we realised that the weight of our 1 checked bag could possibly be redistributed to 2 carry on bags and that our carry on bags could be more efficiently packed.  So for this trip, we challenged ourselves to fly with carry-on baggage only!  Still, could we achieve the limit of 1 carry on each not exceeding 56cm x 36cm and at a maximum weight of 7kg, plus a handbag or laptop bag?  How did we do?
