In our first time in Malaysia’s capital city, we didn’t really enjoy it because, in almost every corner, you will find buildings being constructed. We’ve been to a lot of Asian countries in the last 10 years and this was the last place I want to go to.
Last month, a friend of mine got home from visiting Malaysia and he said that the place has changed from the one that I’ve described to him. So, me and my wife got curious and have booked a flight a week later to Kuala Lumpur.
And, true indeed, the place has changed the last time I visited. Everything is well-built now and the city has become livelier than ever.
The city is known for many things. You can learn about Malaysian culture, try out their multicultural foods and you can even pay for some girl escorts as well.
In today’s article, I will go over some amazing things that you can do while you’re in Kuala Lumpur.
If you go a little bit outside of Kuala Lumpur, you will find the infamous Batu Caves. It has received many upgrades through the years and it has been livelier and more colorful ever since.
You will find many different stalls that provide tourists with souvenirs and specialty items that they can buy for their friends and family at home.
If you want to see the inside temple for yourself, then you will have to be prepared to traverse a 272-step stairs into the cave. Hey, it is good exercise!
The area of Bukit Bintang in Kuala Lumpur is known to be a haven for shoppers. The area is filled with a lot of shopping malls that you can go to.
You can check out the KL Plaza, the Starhill Gallery which offers branded items such as Prada and Gucci, Sungei Wang, Low Yat Plaza, Fahrenheit ’88, and a whole lot more.
If you go closer to the Petronas towers, you will find the infamous Suria KLCC mall which is touted to be the biggest shopping mall in Malaysia.
Also in the Bukit Bintang area, you will find the famous Jalan Alor which is the biggest street food area in Kuala Lumpur. Its night market is packed with a lot of different food stalls- each offering a different part of the world as Malaysia is filled with people from all over Asia.
The atmosphere here is phenomenal. The place is lively and it is filled with friendly people. You can even ask around what they think is the best food stall and they will point you to where you need to be (but if you’re not pressed for time, you have to try everything for yourself).
Personally, I’ve tried some handmade Ramen noodles and even though I was not in Japan, it did provide me with the taste and the feel as if I am in the said country.
The Bazaar Baru Chow Kit Market also offers delicious street foods and snacks and it is another place that I recommend you visit.
