WHAT TO SEE IN KUALA LUMPUR


So what is there to see in Kuala Lumpur? Here are some suggestions.

PETRONAS TWIN TOWERS

Anchoring the sprawling Kuala Lumpur City Centre, are the iconic Petronas Twin Towers. Hailed as the Twin Jewels of Kuala Lumpur, a visit to KL just is not complete unless you have visited this place. The 88-storey chrome and steel towers are joined at the 41st and 42nd floors (175m above street level) by a 58m-long, double-decker Sky Bridge. You can visit this Skybridge but is always a long queue. Tickets are limited.
But never mind. Because there is a large shopping mall and plenty of eateries in the KL Suria which is the podium of the towers.

MENARA KL TOWER

This is a good place to get a grand view of the City and the distant surroundings. There is no worry of queues and you can spend as much time as you like.
Standing atop the Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve, the 421m-high KL Tower is, at present, the world's fifth tallest structure. Officially known as Menara KL, despite the Twin Towers, it remains an important architectural marker. The ideal trip is to go up at 7pm, just before sunset and stay on till after so you can see the city both in the day and in the night….weather permitting.

CHINATOWN

The colourful Chinatown is a well-known bargain hunter’s paradise that seemingly never sleeps. Deeply immersed in Oriental culture, heritage and history, it is undoubtedly one of the most popular tourist spots in Malaysia, and holds its own against its more glamorous neighbours, KLCC & Bukit Bintang. Representing Malaysia’s multihued multicultural background perfectly, you can find all sorts of stuff, from Chinese herbs to imitation goods in this area.

BATU CAVES

11 km north of KL, Batu Caves is a 400 million-year old limestone hill (with a 100-year old temple incorporated within it), best known as the focal point of the annual Hindu festival of Thaipusam in January. The celebration attracts thousands of visitors who come to see the colourful spectacle of devotees who pay homage by carrying ornately-decorated ‘kavadis’ (frameworks) combined with various metal hooks and skewers which are used to pierce the skin, cheeks and tongue. But it is worth a visit all year round.

DATARAN MERDEKA (MERDEKA SQUARE)

An historical part of the city where the earliest developments began. On the one side is the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, with its Moorish Architecture and on the other side is the Selangor Club, with its Tudor architecture. In a now demolished building annexe behind this clubhouse was where the Hash was founded.

BUKIT BINTANG

This road has some of the best upmarket Malls in the City, with all the best brands. Converted to USD, there should be some great bargains here. There are also many restaurants in the vicinity catering to various tastes.

JALAN ALOR AND CHANGKAT BINTANG

Called the cultural heart of the city’s local cuisine, Jalan Alor (located just behind Jalan Bukit Bintang), is basically a strip of hawker stalls set up on the five-foot walkway on both sides and plastic tables and chairs spilling out onto the road. The variety of food available is amazing with barbecued meats, noodles and desserts recognised as some of the best (and cheapest) in the city.
Just around the corner is Changkat Bintang with the pubs for all.
As far as food is concerned, this is everywhere and of all varieties. Just walk about and find what you like best.

CENTRAL MARKET

The focus for the city’s artistic community, Central Market is a KL cultural landmark, just a short walk away from Petaling Street. Also called Pasar Seni, it was built in 1928 and used to be a simple wet market, until the early 1980s when it was revamped into a handicrafts outlet. In similar vein to New York’s SoHo flea market – the merchandise here is cheap and comprises traditional goods such as batik, embroidery carvings, souvenirs, and sculptures.

AS IN ANY CITY AROUND THE WORLD, BEWARE OF PICKPOCKETS!!
AND ALWAYS BRING ALONG YOUR UMBRELLA!!
