Top Five Things to do in Kuala Lumpur
Actually we didn’t fall in love with this city. Nevertheless there are some nice things you can do and see there.
Here I made a list with the 5 top things to do in Kuala Lumpur in one or two days, enjoy!
1. Batu Caves
If you are planning a trip to Malaysias capital, I can recommend a tour to the Batu Caves. These are buddhistic temples build in high above lying caves. After climbing lots of stairs, you can also enjoy a nice view over KL. In front of it is a very huge Buddha in gold and after climbing the stairs, you’ll see many colorful and funny buddhistic figurines.
You can also book a trip inside the caves, but when we saw which kind of animals (snakes, spiders.. uuuaaagh) are living there, we decided to cancel this detailed cave inspection.
2. The Old Town
Afterwards we had a walk through the centre of Kuala Lumpur with its old colonial houses and skyscrapers. This is a very interesting mix.
The entrance for the town hall is for free and inside you can follow the history of Kuala Lumpur.
3. China Town
We had lunch and dinner in China Town. Even if it’s called China Town you can have delicious indian meals, just like we did. The fresh baken Naan bread is awesome!
China Town is not only good for asian cuisine but also for shopping. Besides thousands of design fakes you can shop the compulsive asian “Kitsch”.
4. The Petronas Towers
The Petronas Towers are kind of a symbol for KL and you have to visit them. In front of the Towers you’ll find a really good shopping mall.
5. Cocktail Time at the Skybar
In the evening you should go into the Skybar in the Traders Hotel, because from this point you have an awesome view to the famous Petronas Towers.
