I have been to Kuala Lumpur twice. The first time I went there, I was with my entire family and it was a wonderful trip yet it lacked the real exploration of the city in terms of its night life. The second time, however, I visited with a friend and I had to skip on spending too much time at too many places because we had to get back to Singapore in less than two days. Yet, the trip was fun because it included so much, so many great places and hours of incredible fun because of which those days will always remain close to my heart. 

In Kuala Lumpur, you should't expect a lot of cleanliness and serenity. It's for those who like to party, to revel and also to experience bits and parts of the culture that a place holds. Also, when you're there, I highly recommend a visit to Genting Highlands which is more than 5000 ft above the sea level. You can board a bus from the KL station that would take you to the Genting Skyway terminal and then, no matter what, take the skyway to reach the Highlands. When I was with my family, we stayed at Genting for two nights and we loved the experience because of the chill, the freezing weather and that feeling of being somewhere far-away from everyone and everywhere. So, yes, there won't be any internet connection and your mobile phones won't work. But, hey! Why do you even want them to?

In my itinerary, I would share snippets from both my trips to KL and Genting but in any case, if you don't plan on staying in Genting, you can really cover most of KL in 2-3 days.

It is so different from all the touristy places. When you reach here, you'd literally feel like you're living in the clouds. Also, you have to take the sky way that is a cable car through which you can reach the hill resort. It's the longest and the fastest skyway in South East Asia and also one of the best in the world. Those 2.10 miles will take your breath away! Then, there are amazing malls, restaurants, an indoor theme park and also a groovy outdoor theme park with some amazing rides. However, this time when I went there, the outdoor theme park was closed because of renovation. So, I suggest you to better find out before making the bookings. At night, Genting looks like a spectacular world and it will be very cold out there. But, the atmosphere, the climate and the view is all worth it.

When you live in Kuala Lumpur, make it a point to live in this area. This is so colorful, vibrant, lively and energetic. It has many cafes, restaurants, pubs and discs throughout the lanes and the night doesn't really end here. It goes on and on. Bukit Bintang is just one amazing KL experience that you deserve to have a look at the popular culture and night-life of the city.
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.

I loved it. I loved the music, the drinks, the ambiance, the crowd and all of it because it forced me to dance and I hated to even stop. It's an amazing dance bar at the rooftop and it will trap you into its wonder with the fantastic music. They don't call KL one real party destination for no reason!

This is the real China Town of Malaysia and its great for shopping and also to savor Chinese delicacies. You must really spend a few hours at China Town to complete your KL experience.

This massive structure is also situated in the heart of the city and every-time you see it, you’d keep wondering: ‘What is in there?’ (We were in awe as well). It is a 421m tall broadcasting and telecommunications tower which is one of the highest in the world. If you get the time, you should in fact go to the revolving restaurant or its observation deck to get the best views of the city.
I’d be honest when I say that I didn’t spend enough time here. I visited this place a year back with my family. It has an enormous cave temple which has immense religious significance. It actually is a great place for those who have a fondness for caves and temples and geography and yes, little bits of history.

Thanks for the review and glad to hear you enjoyed your trip in KL. For those of you inspired to visit Kuala Lumpur sometime, I'd highly recommend a mobile app that helps travellers compare currency exchange rates on the ground and locate the best money changers around them. Given the significant exchange rate disparity in the market, the app can help you save as much as 30% of your holiday cash depending on where you're based in town. It can save you a lot of hassle running around to compare and find reasonable rates. Do check it out and welcome to Malaysia! Check out the website : www.currenseek.com
