Three of the 10 largest shopping malls in the world are located in KL, and it is an exciting city for shopping, food, Zoos, museums, architecture and everything there is to enjoy in a city.

The best things to do in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

1. The Twin Towers Of Petrona

The Petronas Towers are the most famous landmark in Kuala Lumpur and were the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004 (when they were pushed back by Taipei 101). These are still the tallest twin towers in the world.

The towers are just as impressive when illuminated at night. You can admire them from below or take the elevator to the top to enjoy the view of KL City. Anyway, good photograph abound!

If you are planning to go to the top of the towers, it is a good idea to book your tickets in advance. Sometimes there can be long queues for tickets.

2. Suria KLCC Shopping center

Suria is a chic shopping center located on the ground floor of the Petronas Towers. With more than 300 stores, it is one of the largest shopping malls In Malaysia.

Many of the shops in this mall cater to the richness crowd, but you don’t have to be rich to shop here. There is something for everyone.

3. KLCC aquariums

This is a state-of-the-art 5,500 square foot Aquarium under KLCC that opened in 2005. If you are certified in scuba diving, you can even dive with sharks here.

Aquaria has more than 250 different species and more than 5,000 terrestrial and aquatic animals from Malaysia and around the world.

4. Merdeka Square

It is a historical square with some interesting buildings related to the colonial period and the independence of Malaysia. The name means Independence Square.

As a photographer, the highlight of this place should be the XIX century Sultan Abdul Samad building with its bell tower and copper domes.

5. Thean Hou Temple

This is a Chinese temple in Kuala Lumpur with great architecture that can be visited for free.

It’s a contemporary building (1980s), but it has all the classic features that make Chinese cultural objects so cool.

We have been to Thean Hou Temple several times over the years and it is always fun to explore.

6. Bukit Bintang

Bukit is KL’s shopping and enjoyment district and is full of shopping malls, Clubs, night markets and more. There is a wide variety of Chinese, Indian and Vietnamese restaurants, as well as other dishes for almost all nationalities.

Major shopping malls include Pavilion KL, Fahrenheit 88, Starhill Gallery and Berjaya Times Square. Some of these malls each have more than 500 stores!

7. Jalan Alor

This street is part of Bukit Bintang district and is popular for a lot of street food and colorful street art. It’s a fun place to take pictures.

There are bright murals of waterfalls, jungles, animals and people, garden scenes and more. These are marked as lane 1 and lane 2 on Google Maps, but if you look around the side streets, you might find others!

8. KL tower

The KL Tower is the 7th tallest freestanding tower in the world and a great place to have a 360 degree view of Kuala Lumpur Malaysia!

You can take the elevator to the top of the building and walk through the observation deck that wraps around the tower, and there’s even a glass cube called the Sky Box where you can have your picture taken sitting on glass panels above the city.

On the ground floor of the KL Tower there are Restaurants, souvenir shops and a mini-Zoo.

9. bird park KL

This ornithological park is home to nearly 3,000 native and foreign birds of more than 200 different species.

We didn’t find this park as good as Bali Bird Park in Indonesia, but it’s still worth a visit.

They have huge walk-in aviaries where birds can fly freely in a natural environment.

10. Batu Caves

This place is only a 20-minute drive from the city and can be a refreshing change from the rooftops of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

These are large limestone hills with huge caves that can be explored by a series of rainbow stairs, and there is a 40-meter (140-foot) golden statue of a Hindu deity.

After climbing the rainbow stairs (272 in total), you can look around the caves and interact with wild monkeys.
