Mix of Asian in One Bowl thats how I describe Kuala Lumpur!!!
Kuala Lumpur, capital city of Malaysia is the hub of the infamous and budget airline, Air Asia. Mention any destination in South East Asia, this airline makes it for you. I lived in Kuala Lumpur sometime ago, and this city definitely has made my life changing. I met several great persons who become my family. Talking about Kuala Lumpur, I feel a bit sentimental. Anyway lets talk about traveling around Kuala Lumpur what this site meant to be.
How to get to Kuala Lumpur ?!?!
Kuala lumpur can easily be reached from its neighboring country. From Singapore, and Thailand through land, and with the ferry or flight from Indonesia and other part of the world. Its fantastic and beautiful airport, KLIA, Kuala Lumpur International Airport has connection around the globe. And Its Local Cost Terminal with Airasia can send you around South East Asia and as far as to Australia, UK and France at the moment.
What to do in Kuala Lumpur ?!?!
Three days is the best amount of time to visit Kuala Lumpur. On your 1st day, you can get up early to pick up your ticket from the Petronas tower, dont go on Monday coz its closed, n be there early as they only serve 500 visitors a day. If you are not lucky, then you are not able to go up there on the bridge that day. After a short visit, you can check the Suria KLCC shopping center then take the underground and make your way to Pasar Seni and visiting its central market. If you carry on your way, you will end up the infamous fake product market at Jalan Petaling aka China town. It is very interesting just to wonder around here. So many choices of food for your lunch, and you wont be afraid to get hungry here. In the late afternoon, you can make your way to Berjaya Time Square, Bukit Bintang area for a great bargain shopping. Best place to stay in KL, from my experience is in Bukit Bintang area, it is nice, well connected and all you need is in your vicinity. In the evening you can head to Alor street, which full of street hawker restaurant and delicious typical Malaysian chicken wings.
On your 2nd day, you can make your way to Batu cave. You can take bus from near Central market at Pasar seni. It is about 13km from Kuala Lumpur city center, easily reachable by taxi as well, in case you are traveling in group. After visiting batu cave, you can carry on your late afternoon visiting Masjid Jamek area and Little India. And having dinner at one of those Indian resto in Brick field is very nice experience. On you 3rd day, you can have a day trip to Genting highland, Sunway Lagoon, Sepang Internationa F1 area, and also Putra Jaya cyber area.
Kuala Lumpur is very rich of flavor,mixing between Chinese, Indian and Malay. That’s why I call it visiting one Asian city and you got to see three different ethnics groups there. I really like this city, not as tidy as Singapore but also not as chaotic as Jakarta.
