About Kuala Lumpur

Including tips for the best time to visit Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur is a city of striking contrasts with a never-ending list of things to do, see, and taste.

Packed with impressive skyscrapers, huge malls, and bustling markets, Malaysia’s capital is both a hotspot for shopping and nightlife, as well as a fusion point of ancient cultures. Malay, Chinese, Indian, Tamil, and Thai people have lived here side by side for generations – a melting pot best reflected in the local food.

Follow your nose to Petaling Street (Chinatown) for a serving of "Chili pan mee" – a noodle stir-fry of fried onions, fresh scallions, crushed peanuts, shredded pork, and a poached egg. Then head over to Brickfields (Little India) for spicy chicken curry, dosa pancakes, and all the banana fritters you can handle. Just bring a map so you don’t get lost between these lively districts.

Kuala Lumpur isn't only all about the food. The futuristic Petronas Towers are hallmarks of the Kuala Lumpur skyline, and the Islamic Arts Museum and National Museum offer a look into the city’s rich history. You can escape the city hustle in the lush Botanical Gardens, or the Batu Caves – a series of spectacular, Hindu shrine-filled chambers set beneath a limestone hill, only 30 minutes north of the city.

Kuala Lumpur International Airport offers direct flights to Singapore and other destinations around the world.

Food was cheap and delicious and most of the restaurants are halal . The taxis( most not all😅) are not brilliant: likes to rip off people.. get GRAB. The hotels or apartments are good . Malaysia has one of the best breakfast buffet 😍. Love shopping in KL.

Excellent place to visit. People are friendly right from immigration dept to local people. Accomodation was also luxury. Will come again Had small issue with pre nooked/paid taxi driver from KLCC who did not know the place WHERE WE HAD TO GO so he roamed around and left us with luggage at a different place.. anyways minor issue

I liked the Batu caves, tiring but wasn’t bad. The taxi Drivers however I didn’t like, they were giving us overpriced fare and never would turn on the meter, i’d Recommend using grab or train in Malaysia

A great city for shopping experience i would say.

November 4, 2018

A great city for shopping experience i would say. Just more choices of things compared to Penang. As i am from Penang, the hassle,the traffic jam did not affect me that much. Had a great time at the Aquaria Klcc, IKEA Cheras was awesome!! We didnt explore the food that much as we travel with toddler.
