Things To Do in Kuala Lumpur

Hello you beautiful travel fiends! How are you and where are you going? Today’s post is all about things to do in Kuala Lumpur or KL as the locals call it. I took a bunch of beautiful images but WordPress is having a hissy fit because they’re too big despite me downsizing it. I did manage to get a few upload so I hope you enjoy!

Things To Do in Kuala Lumpur

Petronas Towers

First off the bat if you’re afraid of heights then this is not for you! There are 2 of them and you go up in a lift in batches. Side note, buy your tickets beforehand or you’ll end up having to wake up at the crack of dawn to wait for the ticket office to open and hope you get the time you want! Anyways, the views from Petronas Towers and if you visit in the evening you get to enjoy a water fountain show (similar to Dubai and Vegas) outside.

Batu Caves

The caves are around 30 minutes drive from the city and pretty easy to get to. However, when we went we booked a tour which included a hotel pick up and a couple other stops. The caves are made out of rock and essential has a temple inside of it in honour of Lord Murugan, a Hindu deity. To get to the main cave you need to climb 272 colourful steps with monkeys along the way. It’s a religious site so do wear appropriate clothing and comfy sturdy shoes. Depending on how good your stamina is in 85% + humidity, it should take about 20-25 minutes to climb the stairs.

Sri Mariamman Temple

Malaysia is so diverse that you will find a Hindu temple on the edge of China Town. The Sri Mariamman Temple is the oldest Hindu temple in Kuala Lumpur. It’s free to visit but with all religious buildings be sure to have your shoulders and legs covered. Oh and you can’t wear shoes when you go in. The statues are all beautifully and ornately decorated. It’s a rainbow of colours, rich and vibrant that the statues feel almost alive.

Night Markets

There are several night markets in KL and I highly recommend that you visit at least 2! Petaling Market and Saturday Night Markets are good places to start. Try all the fresh fruit and I highly recommend getting a mango smoothie. It tastes so good you’ll go back for more. Also try all the delicious food they’re making on the spot. Basically, eat your way around the food markets. There are of course clothing, shoes and accessories that you can get for a bargain.

Of there are lots of things to do in Kular Lumpur such as going up the KL Tower, visiting a batik store to see how they make their prints or, going to a pewter factory and seeing the largest beer mug! If you’re looking for sea and sand, hop on an internal flight to Langkawi and enjoy the beautiful sunsets whilst sitting on the sand. It’s a place I would love to revisit especially the islands since there are 99 of them!
