Kuala Lumpur is the largest and most influential city of Malaysia. A population of Malays, Chinese, Indians, and others from around the world makes the city a melting pot of coexisting cultures that each preserves their own customs traditions and cuisines. The mixture of ancient architecture and modern skyscrapers and most importantly the mouth-watering food makes Kuala Lumpur a fantastic city to visit.
Now let’s start with these eleven things to do in Kuala Lumpur
Nothing dominates the skyline and screams Kuala Lumpur more than the monster Twin Towers. I am at the base of the Petronas Towers, these are by far the most iconic landmarks in the city. At the ground level is a big shopping center. At the 41st floor there’s a sky-bridge where you can get a great view of the city. From there there’s a beautiful park right next to the Petronas Towers that has some of the best drinking fountains I’ve ever seen in my life.
The historical district of Old Central Kuala Lumpur the area makes a great place for a walking tour despite all the modern skyscrapers in Kuala Lumpur. There’s still a historic area I’m just near the the old railroad station and I’m doing a little walk around to see some of the most historical and some of the most prized buildings in Kuala Lumpur. I’m at the entrance of Kuala Lumpur’s National Mosque Medicus Square, which is the independence monument and it’s home to a 95 meter flagpole.
Which is among the tallest in the entire world, the Menara KL tower at 421 meters in height the insanely tall communications tower touches the heavens. The sky restaurant is admire, the unbelievable panoramic view from the top on the top of the Menara KL Tower, at some absurd height up here pretty scared out of my mind to sit on this ledge.
Number four is Little India known better as Brickfields KL, it has a lot of Indian areas of town but the area of Brickfields is known as the largest Little India in Kuala lumpur. Brickfields is the home to hindu temples small food markets stores selling Sarees and other Indian clothing, more important, most of the South Indian restaurants is around here.
Petaling Street, popular with both locals and tourists in Kuala Lumpur. We are at Chinatown on Petaling Street and lots of different stalls of clothes, mostly clothes, shoes, watches, handbags, DVDs, offensive stuff like that. There are also lots of restaurants at both of this street and on the surrounding area of Chinatown as well.
Number six is the Thien Hau Chinese Temple built by the Hainanese community in KL. This Taoist temple is dedicated to the Thien Hau goddess of the heavenly mother. I am at the Thien Hau Chinese temple it was built on the side of the hill furthermore you also have a view of Kuala Lumpur. On the other side, the Central Market also known as Pasar Seni.
Pasar Seni at one point it was the original central market of the city. Today it’s a little bit touristy inside but it is a good place. If you’re looking to purchase Malaysian souvenirs it is a good place to browse around.
The KL Gardens and the KL bird park which includes the world’s largest in-flight aviary for bird lovers. It shouldn’t be missed the KL Gardens, walking around with nice scenery. The KL bird park, the KL Mouse Deer Park, the Butterfly Park and a Hibiscus Garden an Orchid Garden you name it it’s all right in this area, The KL Gardens.
Batu Caves it’s located just 13 kilometers from the center of KL. It is one of the most sacred Hindu religious sites outside of India. The 272 steps to the top is an easy climb that’s rewarded with a gorgeous cave filled with Hindu religious. At the bottom of the cave you’ll find a series of vegetarian restaurants where you can replenish your calories after the climb.
The Central Chow Kit Wet Market it’s one of the largest fresh wet markets in the city, and they have a lot of my absolute favorite ingredients. In the entire state all the fresh ingredients, you could prepare a Malay feast are available at Chow Kit. There’s also always a delicious array of fresh tropical fruit as well.
Did you really think I’d end this list of things to do in Kuala Lumpur without adding food???
As an attraction for myself, and most local Malaysians as well, it’s all about the food and when you visit Kuala Lumpur. Your mouth is going to rejoice with the diverse selection of Malay, Chinese, and Indian food available. Malaysia is one of the best countries in the world for food. Kuala Lumpur offers something tasty at every corner. From nasi lemak to Ikan Bakar, Char Kuey Tiaw to Bakuyt tea, banana leaf to tandoori chicken.
