Images Of Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur has all the trademarks of a South-East Asian capital. The shopping is cheap, the weather is hot, the traffic is chaotic and the food and drink is plentiful. Commonly abbreviated to KL, it is also the cultural, political and commercial centre of Malaysia. During a visit one can witness the hectic lives the locals lead in its distinctive neighbourhoods, see the buildings where the country is run, and marvel at some of the most famous skyscrapers on the planet.

    Kuala Lumpur

    This was my first stop in South East Asia so I'm not really in a position to compare it to other places yet. Getting around is very simple, especially if you use the trains spread across the city. It's also a very pedestrian friendly city. The culture is vibrant, its actually very multicultural. I would definitely recommend stopping by here if you are ever in South East Asia.

    Great location, friendly staff - would stay again!

    Overall, it was a pleasant stay. We had a hard time locating the guesthouse at first because the people we asked for directions were not familiar with the street name. Later, we learned that the people were more familiar with the former street name

    Insider Tip:great.thanks

    KL

    KL puts a lot of people off - you know, 'Oh, it's just another big Asian city'. But if you look underneath the surface layer of megamalls and mega-markets, you just might be surprised at what you find.

    Insider Tip:Eat where the locals eat. A busy hole-in-the-wall is probably less likely to give you stomach upset than a tourist trap. Second tip: There's a few free tours run by the council: one is at Independence Square, another at Kampong Bharu (Old Malay settlement) and the last at Brickfields (Little India). They are led by locals and are well-worth checking out. KB is here: http://www.visitkl.gov.my/visitklv2/index.php?r=column/cthree&id=112&place_id=975

    Pretty boring

    Despite the petrona's towers and the big square, there is very little to do in Kuala Lumpur. There are tons of shopping malls, but all of which are over-priced.

    Decent Kuala Lumpur

    Nice and decent size of city. Easy walking distance or metro can get your place A to B no problem within 5-10 minutes. Furthest distance from central of KL about an hour. Many to see, but still with some limitation compare with other culture. Heat could a problem that is constantly hot. Many shopping malls, and street vendors. Night markets and street vendors are always hustling and pressure you to buy cheap and fake items. Foods are ok, fruits are extremely distasteful, fake?

    Insider Tip:cheap taxi fee if you ask for run the "meter", expensive on the beer in the club, street is ok.
