Stay connected for my stories on Bangkok, Pattaya, Las Vegas and New York trip.
KL city gallery: Visit the KL city gallery to see the past, present and the future of the KL city. There is also an architectural model display of the developments going on in KL and is totally cool. There is also a café that serves yummy croissants and coffee.
Day 1: Visit the iconic Petronas towers-the tallest twin towers in the world-which was also the tallest building in the world from 1998-2004. It's an absolute architectural marvel! You can either take a ticket and go inside or sip cocktails at Marini's on 57 and enjoy the splendid view like we did. Next to Petronas, you can find Suria KLCC which is the most high-end mall of the city! Shop here or grab a bite. We had Godiva's ice cream and then had dinner at Naughty Nuri's which is walking distance from the mall.
After this we went to the PETRONAS towers and visited the Surya mall. We spent our rest of the time in the mall taking pictures, eating food and then drove back to the airport.A total of 3 stop overs in Kaula Lumpur and we covered most of the popular destinations in and around the city. If you have more than 12 hours, you can plan a whole day to visit the Genting highlands. There is an indoor and outdoor theme park on the highlands and lot of casinos. You should definitely try the cable car to reach Genting. The climate here usually is between 14 to 18 degrees.VISA:Previously, Malaysia used to issue transit visa which is not valid now. If you have to get out of the airport and visit the city, or travel from KLIA1 to KLIA2, you need a valid Malaysian visa.The VISA is valid for 12 months for multiple entries with a maximum stay of 30 days for a single visit.Transport:Once you land in the airport you can book a taxi, rent a self-drive car, take the KLIA express or the hop in-off bus.We have tried all the means of transport and felt that renting a car is affordable if you are a group of 4 or more. Otherwise, go for the other options.KLIA express connects the two airports KLIA1, KLIA2 and also covers Sentral.There are plenty of cabs available just outside the airport and give a good deal on Bargain.Food:Malaysia offers you a variety of food and if you are an Asian cuisine fan, then you must try the local food. There are in-numerous KFCs, MCDs and subways for those who do not want to take a chance.So, make the best use of your layover in Kaula Lumpur and visit the beautiful city and ENJOY!
I don’t speak Malay. I’d assumed the “sains” in “Petrosains” translated roughly as it was pronounced: sai-ince. It was even billed to me as a “science centre”. After our visit this weekend, I wonder if it’s best translated as “propaganda”.
This one's a must visit KL destination. You can see these majestic towers from most parts of the city and they would always appeal to you. Take pictures here because you might regret if you don't. Then visit the stores, the towers and in fact you can go up to the top floors after paying some amount to grab more of splendor in your eyes.
Situated in what’s called the “Kuala Lumpur City Centre” (KLCC), Petronas Twin towers feature an observation deck half way up it and the Suria KLCC mall at ground level. Suria isn’t really where you’ll find the shopping KL is known for, as it’s mostly high-end boutiques here.
The Towers look amazing!
For my one full day in KL, I decided to take in the city’s architectural sights followed by an afternoon of the #1 tourist activity here – shopping. Kuala Lumpur, also known as the “Garden City of Lights”, is the capital city of Malaysia. It’s a rapidly-evolving, modern city, with a goal of catapulting Malaysia into “fully industrialized nation” status by the year 2020. After a morning of walking around the city, through the parks and taking about 50 pictures of the Petronas Towers (they are so impressive, it’s hard to stop – though equally hard to get a good picture with all of them in it) I headed into the KLCC Shopping Center. I spent some quality time there and actually did buy a few things before catching an adventurous wave and taking the train down to Chinatown to the well-known Petaling Market. The market was loud, colorful and aromatic with smells from the many street vendors wafting through the stands. I tested my haggling skills with the street vendors and eventually bought a couple of very reasonably priced souvenirs.
