This busy, modern, yet charming metropolis is somewhere every visitor to Malaysia should experience and spend at least 2 or 3 nights exploring.  Whether it’s the back street local food stalls cooking up some delicious Malay cuisine, the modern, designer shopping malls that are dotted around the city or the amazing cultural sites within or surrounding the city, there’s plenty to pack into a few days here and you’ll be so glad you did.

 

As the capital of Malaysia, you’d expect this city to be modern, business-like and efficient.  Indeed it is, but it also a city steeped in history and one that benefits from a wonderful mix of cultures from nearby Indonesia, Thailand, plus India and China beyond. 


Step away from the busy streets and high-rise buildings and you will come across side streets oozing with character, whether its old buildings housing generations of one family, small boutique shops selling locally handcrafted goods or local family-run restaurants serving delicious homemade cuisine.  Don’t be shy to venture away from the main tourist route and explore some of these back streets, whether it’s on foot, by bicycle or even by hailing a local trishaw driver and asking him to show you around.


Unlike some of the other major cities in Asia, and perhaps with the exception of the Petronas Towers, Kuala Lumpur is not necessarily blessed with iconic buildings and sights to see – it is for this reason that you need to grab yourself a good guide book and some comfy shoes and go out there and explore the city – you won’t be disappointed!

Experience Jalan Alor

 

 

Experience Jalan Alor

This unique food destination in the heart of Kuala Lumpur is a place not to be missed if sampling the local cuisine is high on your agenda. The best time to visit it is once the sun begins to set as this is when the streets will be bustling with life.  With rows and rows of hawker stalls, this is where some of the city’s best food can be found and it is popular with both tourists and locals – always a good sign! You come here for the food, not the furniture, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself eating on the side streets, sat on plastic chairs – it’s all part of the experience!

The Petronas Towers

 

The Petronas Towers

Completed in 1998, the Petronas Towers enjoyed the accolade of the World’s Tallest building for 6 years although these iconic towers do remain the world’s tallest twin towers and continue to be one of the most visited tourist attractions in Malaysia.  At the base visitors can find the exclusive shopping mall of Suria KLCC where many designer stores can be found.  Alternatively, visitors are able to access the towers and also the Sky Bridge that connects both towers, but only a few permits are issued per day, so arrive early to avoid disappointment. 


 
Shopping at the Central Market

 

Shopping at the Central Market

If shopping at designer malls and high-end boutiques is not really your thing, head to the Central Market with it’s distinctive Malaysian flavour.  Here you’ll find scores of unique stalls and shops selling all kinds of souvenirs and gifts including batik clothing, beautiful bespoke jewellery and colourful stationery. With an abundance of dining options too including the vibrant Central Market Food Court, there is plenty of opportunities to spend a few ringgits!

 
Cool off at the Sunway Lagoon Theme Park

 

 

Cool off at the Sunway Lagoon Theme Park

Something completely different and not really an experience you’d immediately think of when visiting Kuala Lumpur, but if you’re travelling with kids, or simply want to cool off after hours or even days of sightseeing, why not take a trip to the popular Sunway lagoon Theme Park. Located just 15 minutes from the city centre, this vast resort offers guests numerous fun pools and water slides, themed thrill rides and wildlife experiences.
