Sightseeing in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


I recently had a trip to Kuala Lumpur. Filled with a great number of shopping centers and hotels, this capital city Malaysia is a must-visit place for food and fashion lovers.

We started our exploration of KL with a visit to the Golden Triangle. This place boasts of the city’s iconic skyscrapers known as the Petronas Twin Towers. Standing 1,483 feet tall, these towers are considered one of the world’s tallest buildings. The Golden Triangle area is also filled with high-end shopping malls and five-star hotels.

The Merdeka Square which is one of Malaysia’s famous heritage buildings is also a must-visit. This place signifies Malaysia’s independence from the Britishers in 1957 and dons the Malaysian flag on a 100 metres tall flagpole.

Do keep a day a day or two to explore the shopping centers in the city. Suria KLCC,  Bangsar Shopping Centre, Bukit Bintang, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, and Chinatown are some of the premier shopping destinations in the city. From branded clothes to electronic gadgets and  Malaysian wooden souvenirs, the stores in these shopping centers sell a wide range of items. You might be tempted to over-spend so do keep your budget in mind and shop for the things that you need the most.

If you are on a relaxed trip and have more time in hand then you can also head a little outside Kuala Lumpur to the city of city of Subang Jaya and check out Sunway Lagoon. It’s a theme park featuring several interesting rides – a great place for kids and adventure junkies.

The best thing about visiting KL is that it allows you to have an interesting international trip without spending a lot on travel. The city is filled with budget hotels and restaurants. I checked out this website called Wego India to find low-cost places of stay in KL. So, before you reach the city make sure you have finalized on a good hotel or resort for stay.
