Kuala Lumpur is a place to visit especially for couples who like to spend a 2 or 3 nights stay to explore. These are my guides. Day 1:- After you arrive at the airport, take a light rail transit or KL sentral express where you can purchase the ticket at level 1 of the international arrival hall or if you can walk to the airport information counter for assistance. After arriving your destination at KL sentral, you can check in to the well known shopping mall call Mid Valley Megamall which is usually visited by locals because most of the foreigners will only visit Suria KLCC shopping mall which is selling branded and premium goods. You can spend a whole of 2-3 hours shopping here for local and international branded goods where it is separated in to 2 different block. The economy medium goods can be found at the Megamall and for premium goods than you will need to walk across the mall to the opposite block call The garden for premium good and bags. Afer that, from there you can take a KTM or train in the mall and make a interchange to Star Lrt station where you can put a stop at KLCC shopping centre or the Petronas Twin Towers to continue your shopping spree till the evening. If you are at KLCC, than you can visit the famous Sky bar at Trader Hotel, Level 33 to chill your night. Cheers. Day 2, Call for a cab or the hotel concierge to help you booked a taxi to the famous Genting Highland Resort to try your luck at the Casino and also the only Casino which is built on top of the mountain which is above 6000 feet above sea level. At this place the temperature is from 16°c-25°c so you can cool your self after the hot sunny day at the city. At this place there have amusement centre where there is a indoor theme park and out door theme park but beware most of the theme park is under major upgrading work till end of 2016. Only a hand full of rides available there now but it is still one of the place you should visit. Booked your hotel stay at this First world Hotel which is rated 3 star at Genting Highland as it is the cheapest hotel on this highland although the sixe of the room is a bit small approx 200 sf but good enough for 2-3 pax. Day 3 :- Take a taxi from the concierge and drive back to the city continue your shopping spree at Bintang Walk. It is surrounded by few shopping centre here Time Square-which are famous for youngster, Sungei wang plaza, Lot 10- food heaven at the Level lobby where the KL 10 most famous restaurant with the combination of eastern or chinese food is available here at the Food Hall. From here you can walk out from this mall approx 50 metres where there is another mall call Star Hill which are popular of its International Branded watches, and than walk across the road you will see a mall call Pavillion where the premium branded fashion and bags are available here. Than after the sun set the bars will start to rock on this bintang walk street where you can see many bars open its door. Or if you prefer to visit the Famous China Town, than you will need to take a taxi to this place call Petaling Street which is approx 15mins of driving distance with a taxi. But beware some taxi dont run with meter so make sure its a meter taxi.

Sze H's City Tips

  • Nice spa:- Ossoto Spa at Jalan dewan bahasa and pustaka located at Wisma Mirama. Its the biggest spa in Malaysia where it is divided in to 2 section for Mens and Ladies. But after the sauna and jacuzzi, both of you can meet up at the lounge area for buffet. The entrance fees from Mon-Thur (Men)RM 88 including the spa facilities and meals and (Ladies) RM 68. For massage there will be an additional chargers of RM 98 for 90mins massage. You can even stay over night at this spa as there are many tube rooms for you to sleep till tomorrow than only you check out. If you are living in the Golden Triangle area or places near Pavillion, Times Square, they will offer you a free and return pick up service to this Spa.
  • Popular late hang out place or Bars:- 1. KL zouk Club located along Jalan Ampang. A walking distance of 200 metres from Hard Rock Cafe 2. Roof top Bar at G tower also located at the junction of Jalan Ampang and Jalan Tun Razak 3. Roof top bar Luna Bar @ level 52 or 55 at Menara Ambank
  • Beware of pick pocket at Petaling Street. If you are walking on the street beside the road, please always be cautious of motor bike to avoid your bags being snatched away.
  • Most of the pubs, bistro and restaurant will add another extra 10% service charge + 6% GST on top of your bill. If you were to claim back the Good Service Tax at the airport, remember to ask for a Tax Invoice with your Full name and passport number printed on it so you can claim the tax back at the Tax return counter at the KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airport) after you check in. If you are looking for a good and economy hotel where its near to your destination than i'm sure on Trip Advisor webs will be able to help.
