Kuala Lumpur is so uniquely Malaysian. Here you will see muslims women sitting alongside hip asians in the cutest and shorts fashion of the moment. The people are so wildly different but have somehow managed to find harmony. This is reflected in the amazing and diverse food scene in Kuala Lumpur. Here you can have Michellin starred meals and some of the best street food I’ve tasted in Southeast Asia. It has incredible and in my opinion some of the best malls and shopping in Southeast Asia. It also happens to be a bustling city that has managed to return its charm and traditional Malaysian style.
Below my Top Things to do in Kuala Lumpur
Visiting Petronas Towers
One of the most famous things to do in Kuala Lumpur is visit them Petronas Towers. The Petronas Towers currently hold the record for being the tallest twin towers in the world. They blend traditional Malaysian Design with the modern. The view from the top is dizzying and stunning. You can read more about visiting Petronas Towers Here.
Dinning in the Dark
One of the most memorable experiences of my time in Kuala Lumpur was Dinning in the Dark. The concept is you go and have an orgasmic meal in utter and complete darkness. When you remove your sense of sight all other senses are heightened. The wait staff is blind so you get to experience what life is like for the seeing impaired. The menu is preset and you only find out what you have eaten at the end. Don’t worry the food is all yummy and western themed. Ashley and I had so much fun guesses what each dish was and we even got a few right.
Explore Old Town Kuala Lumpur
One of the most picturesque things to do in Kuala Lumpur is explore the old town. Your first stop should be Jamek Mosque. This is one of the oldest mosques in Malaysia. This gorgeous mosque features Moorish architectural style is location where the Klang and Gombak rivers meet. From here walk along the river to see so much history and well preserved buildings like Merdeka Square and the Kuala Lumpur City Gallery.
Kuala Lumpur has some of the best shopping in Southeast Asia. The best place to go for high end and high street is the Pavilion. Not only is this mall gorgeous it has countless floors of shopping. There food court is also epic with amazing meals. We spent a few days here shopping and eating till our wallets were empty.
