We are back with another guide! Last year we visited Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia during our stopover from Bali to Manila. Boy, Kuala Lumpur was hot & humid. We were dripping sweat the entire day and it’s amazing how we survived it without burning like toasts. We went here for a day trip and didn’t get to shoot as much content during this time as we rushed our way through the city buzz. Here are a mini guide on the things that we did in Kuala Lumpur! x
Kuala Lumpur Train Station..
is easy to understand and takes you to most attractions in a matter of time. They have trains for ladies only and it’s clean and reliable. The traffic jam in KL is no joke and on our way from Batu Caves to a later cancelled afternoon tea we were stuck in a taxi for the longest time with the taxi metre jacking up the price. Best tip is to take public transportation even if you only have a day, you’ll get around much faster. In order to save time, on arrival at the airport we had pre-booked non-stop express train return at a bargain price on Klook.com
The Petronas Twin Tower..
is majestically beautiful and inspired by Islamic architecture. There is a gigantic mall located next to Petronas and here we escaped the humid heat and indulged in Malaysian sweets.
A Malaysian Delight. When dining as a group one of the perks is that you get to try each other dishes. We had Nasi Goreng, Satay and other Malaysian delicacies and everything was so delicious! No wonder the restaurants at Pappa Rich Sydney are always packed.
Is a sacred place for the Hinduism community. The statue is in gold and stands tall and high in front of the mountain. When walking up the stairs there will be monkeys walking around the area. We got told that historical researchers have disappeared when entering the cave so therefore the government have sealed it so no other can enter. Take the local komuter train from Kuala Lumpur station and it will take you direct to the Batu Caves entrance. The train only runs every half hour, so make sure you know this in order to save time.
Just a short walk from the train station and connected to Little India. A market selling souvenirs, fake handbags and yummy food. Here we had a pit-stop to grab Juicee made of 100% fresh fruits for a refreshing taste! What we really liked was the free wi-fi hotspot and iPhone chargers for us to use while enjoying our drinks.
Our first stop after arrival in KL was to visit the National Mosque when it was still outside prayer times. For the first time ever we got to try wearing hijabs and enter a mosque filled with peace and calm vibes. It was very hot, but a very beautiful experience.
