Spread the love

Malaysia’s capital city is home to many tourist attractions that one can easily go to thanks to efficient public transportation. Unlike Ho Chi Minh or Bangkok, you can easily walk your way to the different areas of Kuala Lumpur basically because everything is in order.

The city is filled with a mixture of nature and development as you can see that Malaysia has done a pretty good job of preserving their different nature parks and gardens.

Despite the massive development in the city, you can still be one with nature in the many gardens that you can find in the metro.

Aside from that, the capital city of Malaysia is also home to some amazing street foods and one can definitely spend the night with a gorgeous girl escort. Both of you can eat some scrumptious foods and retire to your hotel after the nightlife is over.

Anyway, if you are looking for some of the top things that you can do in Kuala Lumpur, be sure to read the rest of the article to find out.


Central Market

The KL Central Market was established way back in 1888 and was actually considered a wet market by then. Today, Pasar Seni (as the locals would call it) is now home to a lot of Malaysian handicrafts which you can buy as souvenirs to your friends and family at home.

I actually love the place because there are so many things that you can buy that you can display in your home. From home décor and accessories, there is certainly something for everybody here.

Jalan Alor

I am a foodie and I definitely want to sample as many different foods as I can. Fortunately, Malaysia is home to a lot of amazing food places and the streets of Jalan Alor are certainly ones that you want to visit.

The street is a long strip that comes to life at 5 PM. From that point onward, you will find many different food stalls where you can find so many different cuisines that are inspired by neighboring Asian countries, as well as some local Malay flair as well.

There is a reason why Malaysia’s obesity rates have skyrocketed in recent years and that is because the country just has a rich food culture that everybody must partake in.

Petaling Street

Located at the heart of Chinatown, Petaling Street is where you can find a lot of knock- off goods that you can buy at dirt-cheap prices. This is also the perfect place where you can brush up your bargaining skills as well.

KL Bird Park

KL Bird Park is the world’s largest free-flight, walk-in aviary in the world. It houses more than 3000 different birds of different species and the place is divided into zones.

The place itself is really nice because it really feels that you are in the middle of a tropical rainforest. Just sit down and enjoy the birds flying just about anywhere in the park.


Aquaria KLCC

From the skies to the… Aquarium, you will find so many fishes in the Aquaria KLCC. Located just near the Petronas Twin Towers, the Aquaria KLCC is a 60,000 square feet aquarium that houses more than 5,000 different aquatic animals- ranging from corals to sharks.

Petronas Twin Towers

To top it all off, head on over to the whopping 88-story twin towers, the Petronas Towers. The structures are magnificent just by looking outside but the real magic is once you are inside since the towers can provide you with a panoramic view of the entire city.
