    Awesomely made to explain Malaysia. The detailing are so good. It's worth to visit for young kids to older people. A must visit place.

    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.

    Having never really been to a mosque before, this was a wonderful experience. We were given robes and headscarves on arrival and taken on a tour by Othman who was amazing. The standard time for the tour is about 45 mins but as we had questions and were able to see noon prayer we spent about 3 hours here. Othman was able to answer all of our questions and was really lovely. The mosque itself is beautiful and well worth a visit.

    A very nice museum (unfortunately the gallery was closed for repairs or so) but the remaining floors offered a good insight into the development of the Malaysian central bank, it’s role and responsibilities, etc. Also a good overview of the development of coins and noted throughout the last few hundred years. All in all, interesting exhibition with everything displayed in BM and English so good for tourists as well. Some nice interactive areas and activities so also younger kids would be entertained for a while. Parking is RM 5 but the museum itself is free (you need to put a deposit of RM 10 for putting any bags you have in a locker).

    We came across this little museum on the way to somewhere else and decided to pop in. It was a very interesting museum, lots of information and many exhibits well displayed. An impressive display of weaponry. Well worth a visit

    We really enjoyed the opportunity to see and learn about this relocated village headman’s residence. Surrounded by skyscrapers, this is a fascinating glimpse into the past and a calming escape. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. A wonderful experience! Highly recommended.

    We visited Lazat cooking class as a family of seven, and had a fantastic time. We started at the market to look at some of the ingredients, and then went to spend a morning cooking, delicious traditional Malaysian food. Ana,Maz Irene and the team were Knowledgeable and friendly, and our results were very tasty! Heartily recommend this as a way of getting to know more about Malaysian food and spending some fun time together!

    Fantastic experience by the dynamic Emilia and her staff , e learned and experienced the hands on art of Batik and took away our own art works .
    She teaches individual and groups and knows her practice . More than that she knows people and can inspire others to free up their creativity! Her workshops are recommended.

    Interesting place in the central market annex, 2nd floor (there is a lift). There is a 5RM entrance but the owner seems happy to waive the charge for foreigners.The artifacts are substantially from Indonesia. He seems to be a personal collector. There are few explanations and I was (possibly unjustifiably) concerned about the provenance - but the same can be said of most museums but it's well worth a visit.

    The best thing about this place is of course the view, which is breathtaking. The personnel was also very friendly and they made our stay pleasant. The food and the cocktails were OK although nothing special. All in all, the experience was worth it and we had a great time at Heli Lounge.

    It's a hidden bar when enter at first you think it's a small place but when you get inside it's really a beautiful place, great drinks and good music and the bartenders were professional

    Started our trip with a bike tour of the city with Mikes bikes and it was excellent in every way. The bikes are really good quality and the guides even better. Sally & Mie did a fantastic job and explained everything in detail on our 8-10 stops. We ended up doing 14 kilometers in just over 4 hours and it gave us a great feel for the city and local areas. The bonus was dinner included at a local restaurant as well as market stops with tastings of fresh fruit. We would recommend to anyone visiting. There were even 3 children on baby seats on some bikes. Felt safe the entire time and can’t say enough of our 2 excellent guides.

    I’ve done 4 escape rooms here and they are all very good. The puzzles are spot on - simple in its understanding but tricky in completion. The themes are good and the design/interiors are awesome. I recommend Subway Terror.

    Better than other escape rooms in KL because they don’t feel impossible or far-fetched but definitely offer a challenge.

    We recommend doing the tour "Off the Eaten Track" a hundred percent. The food spots were really local, the food absolutely amazing. If you are a bigger group you can even enjoy more food, which is great. We've been to areas where we normally wouldn't go alone and Karlson gave us so much information about the ingredients of the food, how it is prepared and the regional differences that exist. We finished the tour with a filled up tummy and a lot of extrardinary taste experiences.
