Walkway from KLCC to Pavilion; vice versa.

Previously, if one wanted to walk from KLCC to Pavilion (Bukit Bintang), one would have to run across a few roads and walk on road shoulders; not to mention weather it out with whatever the sun or rain will shine or rain at you.

Thankfully, the above is now a thing of the past with this 95% air conditioned covered walkway. 5% being open air near the Pavilion side. But it's just a short walk in this open air but still covered walkway.

Yours truly was walking from KLCC to Pavilion to meet his missus, so below are my experiences as I made my way there.

From KLCC, one would walk towards the Convention Center. And there's a signboard to point you in the right direction.
 This used to be a parking lot, but as you can see, is now a "proper" walkway as compared to walking amongst the cars many years ago. I always thought it funny why this would be the case... Thank God, that's now but a distant memory!
 Once you reach Aquaria, turn right and heads towards Jln Pinang exit. Or rather the Convention's main exit.
 And once you pop out, look towards your right. This is where the walkway starts. Officially.
 It's elevated, the whole way through with plenty of entry/exit points at various strategic parts for people to get in/out.
 See... air conditioned.
 Elevated all the way. Yeah! No more jostling or getting scared to death with crazy motorists! :)
 This is where the famous Japanese buffet started at Wisma UOA. I remember coming here long long LONG time ago. Now, you can go to 1U, Mont Kiara and even Sunway Piramid for that famous buffet.
 And after about 10mins, you are there!
 A look back from where I started...
It's open from 0600 to 2300H daily and it's covered with CCTV's and Security Guards. So that's good.

I don't know whether it's good to have the aircons running all that while... I mean, before or after certain hours, might one consider switching some of them off as there wouldn't be that much of human traffic...?

Oh... and the best part? It's FREE! Yup. FREE. You read those 4 letters right.

The End.
