Malaysia: Visit to Kuala Lumpur

Hello People,

Here’s my Kuala Lumpur story.
Do you guys plan your travels in writing, well, I love doing it and that’s how I end up covering the places I would want to visit. You should do it too. Below are the places I have covered and it’s a package travel via Trip Factory. I frankly don’t want you guys to go via them coz they screwed up many things and the best way to go is to plan your own itineraries.

So here are the places I’ve covered.

Petaling street market/ Little China
Street food and street shopping, Chinatown of Kuala Lumpur. This is a place for people who are fascinated with food, especially seafood and Malaysian local cuisine. Well regarding fashion shopping, I didn’t find much of an option or rather I would say outdated collection, you can find good accessories under 100 Ringgits.

Petronas Towers
Here are the iconic twin skyscrapers of Kuala Lumpur and they are sparkling at night, it looks beautiful. I have stayed at Arenaa star hotel and Petronas towers are around 2.5 km away from our hotel, we decided to take a walk all along to have a look at the city and this skyscraper.

Petronas towers are world’s tallest ‘twin’ towers (one of the tallest towers overall) with 88 + floors and are 1,483 ft tall. The first 7 floors are all premium luxury shopping outlets and the remaining floors are the offices to the national petroleum company. There’s a sky bridge connecting two towers at 41st and 42nd floor and anyone who would like to see can actually purchase a ticket at least 24 hours in advance and give it a visit.

Batu Caves
It’s so surprising to see 400 million years old caves.
One of the pilgrimage sites for Hindus all around the world. A 140 feet tall golden painted statue of Lord Murugan, which is also the tallest statue of Lord Murugan in the world. If you are planning a visit then be ready for some workout with a climb of 272 steps, which leads to the main temple.

Genting Highlands
I dunno what to call this, but they are building a small high altitude city itself on the mountain peaks. It’s 57 km away from the city, comprising hotels, shopping malls, theme parks and casinos. The sky cable car will help you travel from one place to another, basically from one hotel to another, sounds fun right, because it’s huge. We were hopping from one food stall to another just to find right dumplings (right basically means dumpling made of chicken or prawns), which we eventually found.

You know, the most surprising part was, we went for bowling and it was only 16 Ringgits (8 per person + 8 for a pair of shoe), lower than what we pay in India for bowling.

We’ve stayed in Kuala Lumpur for 2 days, which is more than enough to explore the city. On our last day, we quickly covered few more places- National Mosque, High court, Istana Negara, the official residence of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, the monarch of Malaysia.

After which we took a flight to Langkawi and frankly I liked that a lot more than Kuala Lumpur.
Wait for my next blog post for it.

See you soon.
