In the past 4 years, I’ve been to Malaysia more than 10 times already, so it is no
surprise that it is one of the best places I want to visit in the world.
Malaysia is rich in culture and history, especially when you visit its capital city of Kuala
Lumpur. There is a wide assortment of places you can go to- each offering their own
unique experience to any traveler.
If you are alone, you do not have to be as the city has some of the finest girl escorts you can find and there are certainly a lot of places that both of you can go to.
Here are some of the destinations that you need to visit when you are in Kuala Lumpur:
KLCC stands for the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre and the KLCC park is just at the
foot of the Petronas Twin Towers. This park was created to ensure that even in the
vicinity of the famous towers, that people can enjoy their time here.
One of the main attractions of the park is Lake Symphony that has light shows being
showcased every night. The show starts at 6 PM up to 11 PM on weekdays and 6 PM
until midnight on the holidays or the weekends.
Aside from the amazing light and fountain show, the park itself is really nice. There are
so many trails, benches, and shallow pools that you can enjoy with you and your family.
Also located near the KLCC is the Aquaria- considered to be the largest, most popular
oceanarium in Asia.
The area is massive at 5,600 square meters and it has a 90-meter-long underwater
tunnel that people can traverse to see some magnificent sea creatures.
Even though you cannot touch the creatures, you can take as many pictures as you’d
like since the oceanarium is made of glass.
Located on the premises of the Perdana Botanical Gardens, the KL Butterfly Park is a
zoo that is filled with a lot of different butterflies.
The entrance fee is cheap and you can enjoy a massive 1.8 acres of land- complete
with some of the most amazing butterfly species in southeast Asia.
Think of Chinatown as a place where you can buy things on the cheap. You can find
plenty of knock-off stuff here, as well as cheap hostels that provide you with ample accommodation.
Chinatown is big, but the main shopping street here is located in Jalan Petaling (or
Petaling Street). Here, you can find plenty of different stalls that offer a lot of things,
including shoes, bags, clothes, and even electronics.
This place is famous for both locals and tourists alike simply because you can brush up
your haggling skills to bring the marked-up prices of things down considerably.
This is the place where you can find most of Kuala Lumpur’s premier shopping malls.
Here, you can find the Pavilion Mall, the Low Yat Plaza, Lot 10 mall, and many others.
Also located in Bukit Bintang is the infamous Jalan Alor, which comes to life at 5 PM
every day to serve different Malaysia, Chinese, Thai, and Indian foods, as well as foods
that are influenced by Western cultures too.
Two of the main Asian influences that you can find in Malaysia are from the Chinese
and the Indians. The latter has built a huge community in Brickfields known by the locals
as “Little India”.
Here, you can find plenty of different things Indian, including textiles, merchandise, and
different foods and spices.
Sin Sze Si Ya Temple
Founded by Kapitan Yap Ah Loy, the Sin Sze Si Ya Temple is the oldest Taoist temple
in Kuala Lumpur.
This temple is quite colorful and it is built as a dedication to the deities, Si Sze Ya and
Sin Sze Ya who have helped Kapitan Yap Ah Loy during the Civil War.
If you want to visit the temple, you can find it in Chinatown.
