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.

    Excellent city to visit

    One of my favourite citites. Modern, yet very cheap. Reasonably safe. Public transport is good compared to most Asian cities. Good range of activities. And if something is farther away, it can be reached by a cheap flight thanks to Air Asia!

    My KL trip

    Sightseeing-wise, nothing much besides the usual attractions like KLCC, KL tower. Batu cave. However the food choice is plenty and actually tasty. And the best thing is the shopping is cheap compared to its neighbor Singapore

    Insider Tip:- Use Uber if you are travelling in 4, much cheaper and faster than public transport. Uber can be used for airport transfer as well. - You can you 1 day trip from KL to Melaka (1.5h-2h one way). Ask anyone of the Uber driver if they are willing to drive you full day to Melaka. Price is around 350-400 RM all-in.

    Surprisingly green!

    KL is definitely the biggest city in Malaysia and apparently quite beautiful and green! We enjoyed seeing that many trees combined with the high building of banks etc. With good food, a very lively Chinatown but great diversity throughout the whole city a city worth visiting!

    Insider Tip:Found really tasty food and beautiful decoration in Chinatown at night

    One Night In KL

    I had a great one night stay in KL! Meet some very friendly locals who took from around many of the bars near the twin towers (including sky bar which was super impressive). Had a great time :)

    Insider Tip:If you aren't on a super tight budget the super fast train in to the city is a great way to quickly get into the city and avoid alot of traffic :)

    Towers, Concerts, China Toen-Little India

    Value for money is crazy here, dinner and drinks with change from £2. The petronas towers are worth a visit especially at night for some pics, also I wondered around and there are loads of area's that offer great variety China town - Little India - Malay culture - so each day can be a bit different here. We spent nearly half a day looking for a bus stop to do a day and night visit and accidentally stumbled on a large open air free concert.

    Insider Tip:So much of the public transport is free or extremely cheap, use it!! People are friendly and polite ask for directions but carry a map just in case - also HSBC is known as Hong Kong Bank, we spent half a day looking for it before we figured that out.
