2 days in Kuala Lumpur! Things to do.

Hey Guys,

To whoever reading this blog and to everyone who has been so supportive, I just wanted to pay my gratitude and say Thank You! And also, a very Happy New Year. I am sure, most of you must’ve gone somewhere to spend their new years. Either your grandparents house or to visit family or just go and discover a new place.

However, I, on the other hand, went to Kuala Lumpur with my parents, since it was my mum’s first time. This was my third trip in 6 months to Kuala Lumpur but this time was different. The reason why it was different is because my parents and I traveled by coach/bus from Singapore. It was a very different experience for me as i have never traveled from one country to another by bus. And surprisingly, my parents were supportive and up for the challenge of traveling 5/6 hours by road instead of 45 min by flight. 

So our journey starts and we reach the pick up point at Golden Mile Complex, Beach Road. We booked our seats on the website called Red Bus. But the company of our bus was Transit. The seats were very very comfortable with a thigh rest. If you are traveling from Singapore to Malaysia in a bus for the first time, you should know the following things. 

– There will be 2 stops in between for immigration. One, to exit Singapore. And one, to enter Malaysia. So, keep your passports ready.
– It might get a little crowded during this time, so be careful and be patient.
– It can get a little cold, so keep a jacket ready!!

So, we reached Malaysia and the place where we were staying was booked from Airbnb. And I must say, it was indeed very beautiful. First of all, we were staying on the 34th floor. Second of all, our building had 3 swimming pools and one was infinity pool on the 37th floor. That is really not all. The infinity pool had the view of all the skyscrapers including Petronas tower, KL tower, etc. This was the view from our room.

We really did not do much of sightseeing because we went for only 2 days but there are a few places where you could go visit where I went the last time I visited Malaysia.
1). Batu Caves.

Batu Caves is a limestone hill that has a series of caves and cave temples in Gombak, Selangor, Malaysia. The cave is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India, and is dedicated to Lord Murugan. There are temples, there is a cave where you enter for 3ringgit and they have the whole story of Ramayana in a cave. Batu Caves temple complex consists of three main caves and a few smaller ones. The biggest, referred to as Cathedral Cave or Temple Cave, has a very high ceiling and features ornate Hindu shrines. To reach it, visitors must climb a steep flight of 272 steps.






2). Petronas Tower.


The Petronas Towers, also known as the Petronas Twin Towers, are twin skyscrapers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. They were the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004 and remain the tallest twin towers in the world.






3). Petaling Street Flea Market.


For all the shopaholics out there, good news for you. There are a few night flea markets so you can shop at daytime and during the night too. I personally went only to this market because i was there for only a few days. But you get a lot of duplicate stuff over there. And if you are a bargainer and you love to bargain, this is the place to go!







4). Bukit Bintang.

Bukit Bintang is known to be as the trendiest shopping and entertainment district. From street food to 5star hotels, from bars to nightclubs. Name it and you’ll get it. This is the best place to have some fun and go clubbing, have sheesha. There is a majority of malay street food and arabic food. 






5). KL tower

The KL Tower is a 421m broadcasting tower which actually appears to be taller than the Petronas Towers, because it is built on a hill. Amidst the city of Kuala Lumpur stands the Menara Kuala Lumpur at 515m above sea level. We paid 110ringgit to visit the VIP observation deck where you can stand in a glass box which is built outside the tower. It actually enables you to see everything under you and around you. Glass bottom box. 








These are the top 5 places to visit. 

Malaysia is a highly recommended place to visit.
