Kuala Lumpur City

April 25, 2018

 

If you’re travelling to and from places in Asia or in and around Dubai it is quite likely that you might have to do a stop in Kuala Lumpur (KL). Provided you’re there for long enough to escape from the airport you’ll need to have a few things to do – of which there are plenty.

Kuala Lumpur is a really popular holiday destination as well, and it’s no surprise really – tropical climates and amazing sights make KL a real Malaysian gem.

Must see sights

Petronas Towers

These iconic towers pretty much define the skyline of KL – soaring high above the others they really are magnificent and well worth a look at. Locally they are known as the ‘twin jewels’ and they really do sparkle like jewels in the Malaysian sunshine. The 88-storey chrome and steel towers are the headquarters of Malaysia’s oil and gas company – Petronas – as well as many other corporations.

Chinatown 

This little pocket of KL is hectic, mystifying and a bargain hunters paradise – trawl through the sprawling markets to bag a few goodies and sample some of the best Chinese food you’ve ever had in your life. Traditional Chinese treatments and massage can also be found here which is fantastic if you need a bit of ‘me’ time amongst all that madness. 

Batu Caves

The Batu Caves are one of the most popular tourist attractions in Kuala Lumpur; built into a limestone hill are three amazing caves which feature various statues of icons and idols well known to KL.

Little India

Little India, Brickfields, is one of the oldest Indian settlements in the whole country. Here you will find an abundance of traditional markets and food produce to keep you entertained all day long. You can buy pretty much anything imaginable here and it’s like getting a mini world tour without having to leave KL!

Thean Hou Temple

One of the oldest temples in the whole of Southeast Asia, the Thean Hou Temple must be on your list of things to see. This temple is dedicated to the goddess of Mercy and Tian Hou – the goddess sent to protect fishermen. 

Places to eat and stay


Jln Alor

KL's biggest collection of roadside restaurants sprawls along Jln Alor, just north of Jln Bukit Bintang. From around 17:00 till late every evening, the street transforms into a continuous open-air restaurant, with hundreds of plastic tables and chairs and rival caterers shouting out to passers-by to drum up business.

Hawker stalls in Chinatown

Pick what you like here; the hawker stalls in Chinatown are vast and each offer some delight that you’ll never have seen before let alone heard of. The food is different, delicious and cheap. Just make sure you don’t fill up at the first stool because you’ll want to try a bit of everything.
