First Impressions on Kuala Lumpur

I arrived at Kuala Lumpur for ISIEA’09 yesterday. After a good night sleep (the trip from Montreal takes something like 28h, door to door) I set out to visit a bit. My first impression is that Kuala Lumpur is a safe city, filled with friendly people. I visited the Menara Kuala Lumpur and the Petronas Towers (although I will have to return as the skybridge was already sold out for today).

This is the second time I visit a country where I do not speak the language at all, but the people here know a little English and seem to be willing to help if they can. I like the people here. They’re polite, warm, and industrious.

The conference begins tomorrow. I am eager to see what’s hot on the Asian computer science scene—this is an Asia-centric conference, for a change.
