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.

    Big, chaotic city

    Kuala Lumpur is one of the young, fast- growing cities of Southeast Asia. That means it is quite densly populated and the infrastructure is not sufficient for the masses of people. The streets are frequently jammed, especially because of all the construction sites for public transport etc. Public transport is also very confusing since there are three systems one has to transfer through all the time (monorail, metro, subway). Other than that it is a very modern and livable city, but expensive.

    Kuala Lumpawesome

    We did so many things in the short period that we were there. The trains are super convenient, and the city really isn't too large so as to not warrant a bit of walking. Old-school. In one day we accomplished; Batu caves, National Mosque, Little India, Bird Park, Islamic Art Museum, and the Petronas Towers. Also, the food~~~ YUM!

    KL, Malaysia

    4 people (3 males, 1 female). KL is very hot -- check out the shopping centers because they are air-conned. Try the light show @ around 8PM at the garden near the Petronas Towers.

    Insider Tip:Use public transportation, esp. the LRT (public rails), more than taxis -- taxis are expensive because many drivers choose not to turn on the meter and instead will haggle a price with you. Our taxi to Petronas Towers was 15 RM (so split among 4 people, it's not too bad at all) but keep in mind that the LRT over would have cost 1.60 RM each and if the man had turned on the meter it would only have been around 7 RM.

    Surprisingly really enjoyed it!

    Most people only come to KL for one or two nights - I stayed for eight and loved every day of it. I was situated in Bukit Bingtang and walked most places as there's a lot to see around. The highlight of my trip was Dining in the Dark which was an excellent experience.

    Insider Tip:Go check out Malaysia's first trampoline park called Jump Asia!
