    Beautiful and up market. Great food court with wide selection of western and Malaysian food available. The views from the 86th floor are amazing.

    Nice park inside malls. Spacious enough for strolling and quite chill compared with the mall inside. Nice place indeed

    This is a wonderful arts museum and is really good for those who may have limited knowledge of Islamic art and culture. It's easy to spend a couple of hours here admiring the art and artefacts, and it also has a very pleasant adjoining restaurant. This should be included on any visitor's itinerary in KL.

    A very vibrant and bright attack on the senses. From the aroma of delightful Asian dishes to the not so pleasant waft of durian fruit. This place has you covered for any number of food choices. And the location is very central to the city, we stayed at the parkroyal and this was only a few minutes walk. Though cutting through some back lane ways did make the wife nervous. Stick to the main streets, well lit and plenty of security.

    Very nice short cut. We stayed at Pavilion area and we were very happy when we knew about it because it saved us a lot of time. There are somewhere where you can get off/ on it. The air-conditioning was a bless. The only thing is that it closed 10 PM because of the convention center. But over all you will enjoy walking through it.

    New experience to visit Buddhist Temple. Had a good stop at this place. Many believers, firing saint (Perfume), worship and check your luck, fortune and future. Seems marriage time, we saw 3 couples of bride and groom celebrating in there with their families.

    As Christians (non-Muslims) we enjoyed our visit to the National Mosque in KL. The prayer space is huge & the design & architecture of the building lends itself to a contemplative & peaceful space. Most people were given a gown to ensure they were dressed modestly and that women’s heads were covered. A good insight into the religious diversity of KL.

    Whatever you are looking for, you can find it here. Central Market is located in a touristic place in KL. Viral area of locals, tourists and visitors. Many shops, stalls and restaurants and cafes. Prices is not cheap.

    This was I’ve of my favourite activities in three weeks in SE Asia. The batik was fascinating and great fun but it’s the interaction with Emilia that made it so much fun. She’s hilarious, warm and welcoming. Definitely no hard sell. Her work is astonishing and available to purchase at very reasonable prices if you choose to. I contacted her via WhatsApp to arrange a time which worked out really well. I paid when I got there (she also has credit card facilities). The studio is on the ground floor of her house so you feel like you’ve almost made a friend by the time you leave.

    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.
