Here are some of the best things to do in Kuala Lumpur:
Considered as one of the tallest structures in the metro, the Menara KL is a 421-meter tower that stands atop of the Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve.
Although this is not as visually appealing as the Petronas Twin Towers, it is actually still an important place to visit because it has a 100-meter-high viewing deck that will pretty much give you the entire, unhindered view of the city.
Although you can go to the viewing deck for free, you should arrive early on the venue if you want to secure your tickets because a lot of people would want to be in on the action.
The colorful Batu Caves is definitely one of the places that you must visit when you are in Kuala Lumpur. The caves themselves is actually part of a 400-million-year old limestone hill. Inside the hill is a 100-year old temple where the annual Hindu Festival of Thaipusam is held.
Aside from the fact that you can visit the inner temple for worship, tourists will be especially fond of the colored steppes that you can see when you arrive at the place. Be sure to get your cameras ready because it is indeed one of the places that is worthy of your social media accounts.
This is the place to be for many bargain hunters because Chinatown in Petaling Jaya has a lot of items on offer. From Chinese herbs to cheap knock-off goods, you can definitely find something that you fancy in this place.
Although the people here are generally friendly, you do want to keep an eye on your belongings because thieves are lurking in the area.
