31 Dec 10 Things to Make Your KL Tour Memorable
Visit Petronas Towers
No travel to KL without seeing the legendary Petronas Towers would be complete. Starting at a height of 451.9 feet, these are the world’s tallest twin towers and are a sight to behold. And while the towers are stunning from the outside, it is from the towers themselves that the views of the city below make these a required addition to any KL path.
Check the City VIew from KL Tower
Make sure to visit Menara KL, also known as the KL Tower, for the best views of the city’s Petronas Towers. KL Tower is a very popular alternative if you don’t get tickets for the Petronas Towers, and it’s actually bigger than the Petronas Towers. It is the seventh tallest communications tower in the world at a height of 452 meters and the climb travels at the speed of the missile, taking just 54 seconds to reach the top. The city’s 360-degree views are truly spectacular from the observation deck at 276 m.
Climb Up to Batu Caves
The Batu Caves, devoted to the Hindu god Lord Murugan, are about 45 minutes north of Kuala Lumpur. This is one of India’s most famous Hindu shrines. And it really looks like you’re joining South India. Colorful temples in the Tamil style dominate the field at the base of the stairs to the cave and vendors are selling candles, flowers and trinkets for worshippers to deposit in the various temples.
Eat at Jalan Alor
On the street dining experience, Jalan Alor Food Street is the place to come. When you make your way from one end of the street to the other, you will have menus introduced to you every five minutes, boasting that their restaurant is the best value and the best food. And maybe they’re right! Take a gamble, go and see what you like.
VIsit the National Mosque
Located in the middle of 13 acres of gardens, the Masjid Negara, Malaysia’s National Mosque is an interesting place to visit and know more about Islam. Every Monday through Sunday every 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., non-Muslim tourists are allowed to visit the mosque. On Friday, only the two afternoon time slots are limited to the hours.
Stroll Around Petaling Street
Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur is a constantly revolving neighborhood and Petaling Street is the center of the crime. If you want to knock-off, this is where you should come. There’s nothing! Sunglasses, ties, socks, zippos, perfume, you’re going to name it; you’re going to find it here. Be willing to haggle hard and there’s no chance that you’ll win a bargain for yourself.
Shot at Bukit Bintang
Look no further than Bukit Bintang if you’re looking for trendy shopping malls, hotels, bars and cafés. The hub of KL’s entertainment scene is this famous lane. This is the city’s chic and trendy component, where the younger generation can hang out or if you are alone, you can have a KL girl escort to join you. It is also home to Ain Arabia, KL’s so-called’ Arab neighborhood,’ where restaurants serve a great selection of Arabic dishes.
Relax at KLCC Park
There is a 50-acre park around the Petronas Towers, consisting of walkways, fitness areas, a large play area for youngsters, and impressive water features. If you are waiting for your time slot to see the towers or if you want to see the towers from a different perspective, this is a perfect place to chill out.
Roam Around Little India
Little India is the spot to do it in the district of Brickfields, just south of KL Sentral Station. It is known that Kuala Lumpur is home to more than 2 million Malaysian-Indians and this is definitely mirrored in this part of the city. The culture, the cuisine, the traditions, it’s like being transported to India, and we loved it completely.
Site Seeing at Merdeka Square
Merdeka Square is a significant landmark site in Kuala Lumpur, which translates directly to Independence Square. This is where the Union Jack was lowered and the first time on August 31, 1957, the Malaysian flag was raised. The Malaysian flag is now flying proudly here at a height of 95 meters on one of the world’s highest flagpoles.
