Yes, I am in love with Kuala Lumpur!
It is so surprising because a lot of people who visited the capital of Malaysia say, that Kuala Lumpur is noisy, dirty and generally terrible. But I really like this place! Maybe that’s why that we stayed there only for 2 nights and had nice experience walking around the main attractions.
Let’s start our Malaysian trip!
How we got there?
In February 2018 we arrived to KL by Turkish Airlines from Budapest with a short stopover in Istanbul. The whole flight was really pleasant and comfortable.
From the Kuala Lumpur International Airport we took Uber to reach our hotel, cost 73 MYR.
There are a lot of luxurious and fancy hotels in KL for reasonable prices and almost all of them have a rooftop swimming pool. We chose to stay in Fraser Place for 594 MYR, 2 nights breakfast included. I was amazed by the view….
After our arrival in the hotel, we decided to walk around the neigbourhood and check what we can eat. We went to AVA Bistro and had margarita coctails 2 for 1 for 38 MYR. The beer price was around 20 – 25 MYR.
What we saw in KL?
After the breakfast we ordered Uber to Batu Caves, Selangor – the complex of temples sitauted in the caves with the large statue of the Hindu God at the entrance.
The entry was free of charge but I had to „rent” a scarf to cover my legs – 5 MYR.
While climbing 272 steps, we could enjoy feeding monkeys (I know we shouldn’t!) that can be seen everywhere in Malaysia.
When we finally reached the top, we could admire the panoramic view of the city and the inner altars.
Downstairs, we bought our first coconut in Malaysia and walked around to check other temples and local stands with flowers, souvenirs and food.
Shopping street – Petaling
When we finished exploring Batu Caves, we got the Petaling Street – Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur.
Besides a million of stands with clothes, cosmetics, bags, we could try the local street food, as well as visit the temples located nearby.
When we visited Kuala Lumpur, it was the date to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Because of that, the whole city was decorated in the lanterns and there were a lot of people visiting temples.
Before taking some pictures with the towers, we had dinner in the restaurant close to our hotel. BBQ Nights are usually full of guests and it is not surprising – they serve a very delicious food :)
Where is the best place to admire Petronas Twin Towers? Sky Bar located close to them :)
At the entrance of the bar guests are asked to buy the voucher for the drink – in that way they can avoid tourists who don’t buy anything, just go there to take pictures ;) Drinks cost around 40 – 50 MYR.
After the night full of fun in Kuala Lumpur, we had to leave the city to reach another place. At the airport we could enjoy the celebration of the Chinese New Year and the Asian food.
