- Visit the Batu Caves, a Hindu religious site
- Take in city views from the top of the Petronas Twin Towers
- Get a Doctor fish pedicure
- Tour the Royal Selangor Pewter Factory
- Please don’t feed the monkeys at the Batu caves. Not only are they obnoxious, but can also be dangerous.
- The best photo op of the Petronas towers is from the park in front of the Traders Hotel
- Stay: I highly recommend staying at Traders Hotel. 5-Star service and amenities, great location and value. Amazing sky bar and pool and views
We were only in Kuala Lumpur for 2 days, but I loved every minute. It was great to be able to meet up with a friend of mine that lives there. I knew her back when she was working in Boston for a few years. I loved that she was a local and knew all the great spots to take us, along with the famous sites. KL is both very modern and run-down. On one corner, you’ll see a tall, shiny, new skyscraper and next door you’ll find food stalls that barely have a roof. There is a mixture of people that live there. It’s hard to say that there is only one culture. There are a lot of Chinese and Indian influences.
Even though we were only there for a short time, we didn’t feel rushed and felt like we got a good overall introduction to the city. I got to try some new foods, and had new experiences like the fish spa. If I come back to Malaysia, I would definitely like to venture outside the city and see some of the villages and beaches.
