Taking a few days of holiday to Kuala Lumpur sounds terrific! Kuala Lumpur is home to numerous remarkable structures. Petronas Twin Towers, Kuala Lumpur Tower, and National Mosque of Malaysia are to name a few. The capital city also boasts the renowned Genting Highlands with its casinos and high-end shopping centers. We have a few tips to maximize your visit to Kuala Lumpur.
1.Pack Lightweight Clothings
Like any other parts in Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur is hot and humid most of the time. It is because Malaysia is situated right on the Equator lines. There might be occasional rain, but you’ll encounter more sun and humidity more than its wet counterpart. To survive the sweltering hot weather of Kuala Lumpur, pack light-weight clothes only. Summer dresses might be best to enjoy your evening out. Don’t forget to bring a jacket just in case if the weather becomes unexpectedly cold (usually in the evenings).
2.Learn the Malay Language
Learning the Malay language can get a bit intimidating. However, learning some key phrases in Malay will greatly help you in the long run. It will also improve your experience while you’re in Kuala Lumpur. Most Malaysians can speak English quite fluently though. When you’re stuck, they’ll be more than glad to switch from their mother tongue for you.
3.Take Benefit of Kuala Lumpur’s Public Transportations
To be honest Kuala Lumpur is more compact than most people think. Many of Kuala Lumpur’s main attractions are clumped together in the same area. For example, Pasar Seni is connected with numerous other traditional and food markets. However, hopping around from one area to another can gets pretty hectic. Especially when you are carrying loads of shopping goodies. In that case, you can take the LRT/Monorail public transportations to go around. If metro trains are not really your thing, you can take MyRapid buses instead.
4.Watch Your Shopping Expenses
Exploring the city around with tons of shopping bags don’t sound really fun to us. If you feel the same, it might be wise to do some planning before you go to the shopping districts. A shopping list might help you to stay focus! Especially when you’re exploring the Pavilion and gawking at its dizzying array of high-end luxury items. Kuala Lumpur’s Pasar Seni is also something else! You can find numerous impressive artworks from paintings to sculptures. You might stumble upon some antiques and ethnic knicks-knacks.
5.Indulge Yourself at The Night Markets
We do advise you to watch your spendings. But who can resist the charm of Kuala Lumpur’s night markets? Especially if you’re a foodie, it’s your best chance to indulge in some delectable (and cheap!) local delicacies. Pasar Malam Sri Petaling and Taman Connaught are two Kuala Lumpur’s most popular night markets. It’s a great place to practice your haggling skill as well.
