    Our tour guide was so informative, helpful and engaging. All staff were so lovely we had a fantastic visit. Surprising and well worth the visit to learn some history in Malaysia and the company.

    Great park for small kids with many playgrounds and water pool to splash 💦. Jogging 🏃🏻 or running on track, sitting or lying on lawns. If rain comes, hide yourself in shopping centre

    Lots to see..KLCC park the aquarium. Plan your travel wisely. We went twice to this pace in our 7 day trip.
    Be aware of the photographers st aquarium. We had a very bad experience there. They literally looted us.

    This place has been promoted as a must-visit hawker street for tourists. Unfortunately, the food sold here do not represent Malaysian food. When you come here, you’re going to see restaurants serving Thai food (which you can get in Bangkok), Chinese food (which you can get from China, Hong Kong or Taiwan), or Korean food (which you will get from, yes, South Korea). Just look at the red tanglung hanging, you’d think you’re in China right? So where can you get true, authentic Malaysian food? Go to Kampung Baru. It’s a modern-day village selling authentic Malaysian food. Find these food to try: Nasi Lemak, Rendang, Laksa, Bihun Sup, Asam Pedas, Satay with Kuah Kacang, Lontong, Mee Rebus, Mee Kari, Mee Goreng Mamak, Roti Canai, Nasi Ayam, Hainanese Chicken Rice, Char Koey Teow, Wantan Mee, Pan Mee, Nasi Kerabu, Nasi Dagang. However, if you see Nasi Geprek, Ayam Penyet, Bakso, Soto - these are all Indonesian food. Better go next door (Indonesia) and try the real ones for these. Enjoy!

    We were planning sky deck but it was sold out, it’s busy place in Lunar New Year decoration. Luxury brands, many other global brands in downtown prices, food court is not typically low price but mid and higher price. Quite full whole day with shoppers, very probably affected by shops present before Chinese New Year 🧧. For local good food, we went just for 10min away and we were happy

    Beautiful picturesque temple. The Thean Hou Temple is a six-tiered temple of the Chinese sea goddess Mazu with Guan Yin Bodhisattva and Shui Wei Sheng Niang Goddess on each side.
    You can register for light offering that lasts for a year for good luck.
    Most convenient way to get to the temple is via taxi or grab.

    I was informed by the reviews written here that the walkway lacks accurate directions and to make it more confusing it has several exit points, however much to my pleasant surprise it has got concise markings and easy to follow instructions to your destination. The travel time reduced drastically by accessing this bridge.

    Nice variety of local food with good taste. Very spicy food, nice coconut juices and thai teas. Food is prepared really quickly. Very noisy atmosphere.

    The National Mosque (Masjid Negara) is the main mosque in Kuala Lumpur. We arrived during prayer times so we couldn't get in, just walk around the gardens and see it from the outside. It's quite big and new.

    The new Panda Eyes multistore dominates the sleepier stretch of this short street where most tourists will find themselves. For classier shopping there is Pavilion at the other end and many restaurants in between. The popular outdoor food court is down a lane among the budget accomodation.

    This was one of the stops in Central Market area and the first Indian Temple visit for this trip in KL. It actually was quieter inside than I expected.

    They were very strict with ensuring no shoes were worn inside or even carried in the hands or inside a bag. A bunch of carts were in front selling various combinations of offerings for the temple.

    Once inside we walked through two floors. The first floor was very bright with colorful tiles, gold trims used throughout. On the second floor, the windows gave views of the statues mounted on the rooftop.

    We spent about 15 minutes inside.

    Every day attraction at Suria shopping mall or Petronas twin towers. Music, lights show and water 💦. Still a lot of audience every day

    As the title suggests, not a great deal has changed over the years in Chinatown. I did notice on my recent visit that there is now a roof covering much of the area. I cannot remember seeing this on my last visit. Although that was quite a few years ago.
    Probably because on The Internet I did not spot a single vendor selling D.V.Ds. However, there are still more than enough stalls selling cheap watches to please even the most fastidious visitor. There appear to be more stalls selling pirated clothing and accessories now than before, but then again it could very well be because of my not being here for a while. As before though, this place is heaving, and it is difficult to wander among some of the stalls because of so many visitors.
    One thing that has always tickled us is the chap selling roast chestnuts right in the middle of Chinatown. Roasted chestnuts are not something normally associated with a tropical country like Malaysia.

    This mall is worth a visit if you enjoy your shopping and want to explore the different malls of KL. While a bit further out from KLCC where many tourists stay, it is still easy to reach via public transport or taxi/Grab. The mall is big with a good variety of stores and decent places to eat, though not as extensive as some other malls like Pavilion. With that said, give this place a visit if you like malls.
