    Not what i expected

    Didn't like KL at all. The city is dirty and those people who live over there as well plus poorly educated. There's not lots of activities to do over there.

    Insider Tip:Don't spend more than 2 days in KL.

    Good and friendly

    We stayed there for 3 days 2 nights. The staffs are very friendly. The place is very clean and equipped with good travellers. There is a large long table for eating, using laptop, etc. It makes the whole place very homely and very cozy. My friend and I like the place very much! (: Lastly, we would like to thank the staffs who found and kept my iPod Touch for me. I left it there on my checkout day. I had a panick attack (lol) but thankfully the staffs kept it for me. Highly recommend

    KL: Stay here while you wait for a flight and do some shopping

    I was mildly impressed with KL. It's super developed and has a nice feel, with loads of greenery. Everyone whinges about how there's bugger all in terms of sight seeing, and this is totally true, but I prefer enjoying the atmosphere of a place, and KL has nice atmosphere. It's also got great shopping everywhere, is cheap, clean and really easy to get around. Def worth an overnight stopover for some last minute shopping before you head home.

    Insider Tip:Go shopping and haggle hard, but friendly.

    Truly Asia

    Malaysia surprised me. The culture, traditions, history, the city buildings, monuments, beaches etc..were truly fantastic.. But most of all the nature of the people was the one which stood out. People are just kind and helpful. You always see a smile thrown at you.

    Insider Tip:The weather surprises you too.. Carry an umbrella... Since this is a tropical region, you will be greeted by rain.

Malaysia: Itinerary

Used mainly as a stopover point for those travelling between Europe and Australasia, Kuala Lumpur has lots to offer. For those who choose to stay there longer than one night are rewarded with some of South-East Asia’s most fascinating architecture, from both the ancient world and the modern.
