Kuala Lumpur - Day Three - Afternoon

After our exhilarating visit to the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park, we walked through The Islamic Arts Museum,  which houses more than seven thousand artifacts, as well as an exceptional library of Islamic-art books.  While we weren’t permitted to take photographs inside, you can find out more about the collection here.  The next stop was lunch and as we drove through the city, we admired the beautiful architecture.  Our destination was the Restaurant Fresh Unique Seafood.   This fantastic place offers more than 100 varieties of live seafood imported from all around the world.  The walls are lined with dozens of aquariums where all the seafood is kept until it’s chosen for preparation.  Then it was off to the Malaysian Handicraft Development Corporation, a center for the traditional crafts of the country.  The staff here works very hard to keep tradition alive and helps tremendously with small entrepreneurial home industry around the country.  They also maintain a very high quality level.  Please enjoy these photos taken on day three in the afternoon!
