Best things to do in Kuala Lumpur - A whole new level of discovery!

Vibrant and exciting, Malaysia's capital city Kuala Lumpur has a whole world of wonder that welcomes each and every visitor with open arms. Here is a list of the best things to do when you're here in Kuala Lumpur.


Visit Petronas Twin Tower

Probably one of the first things that anyone visiting Kuala Lumpur for the first time would do. The Petronas Twin Tower used to be the tallest building in the world back in the year 1998, today, however, it stands as the world's tallest twin building. This gorgeous structure houses many things like a science museum, a cinema, various shops, a concert hall as well as a shopping mall. If you're travelling during the peak holiday season, make sure to get your passes quickly as only a limited number of them are issued.


KL City Gallery

For a mere sum of RM 10, you will be able to enter the KL City Gallery where you can learn all about the past, present and future of this great city. The gallery is in close proximity to the city's historical centre, and as such, you can check out other attractions like the KL Library, Independence Plaza and even the Sultan Abdul Samad building. If you're looking for a city hotel, Kuala Lumpur is home to many great options, like the Berjaya Times Square Hotel for instance.


KL Forest Eco Park

This could easily turn out to be your favourite park to hang out when you're in Kuala Lumpur. Even though it's located close to the busy streets, once you enter, it's almost as if you are transported to a deep forest. This green getaway is the perfect place to escape to if you are looking for a little break from all chaos and noise of the city's traffic.


Pasar Malam Setia Alam

An ideal place to visit if you're looking to explore the city after the sun goes down. As one of the many night markets in Kuala Lumpur, Pasar Malam Setia Alam offers a whole lot of interesting surprises. You'll come across delicious varieties of Malaysian street food and various other stalls that sell different items. This is also the longest night market in Malaysia as officially noted down in the Malaysia Book of Records.


Kampung Baru

One of the most interesting places to visit here, Kampung Baru which literally translates to 'new village', is a historical quarter that exists amidst the frenzy of the modern city. Visiting Kampung Baru will definitely give you a sense of how much the city has changed over the years. You will be able to experience a feel of rural Malaysia as you'll come across many coconut trees, banana trees as well as traditional Malay houses.



Checking out Publika will allow you to cross off many things from your list in one location. Often considered to be more of an artsy mall, the place houses many experiences. From a collection of restaurants that serve delicious dishes to artsy shops and vintage shops, you'll definitely end up spending a lot of time and money as well.
