Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, is an interesting holiday gateway stuffed with sightseeing attractions and full of liveliness, fun and joie de vivre. There are plenty of things one can do in this lively city, but here are 7 must-do things for every first-time visitor:
Shop till you drop: Just like Thailand or Singapore, Malaysia too is known for its great markets and malls. For a shopaholic, Kuala Lumpur is a drop-dead beautiful destination. The best area for shopping is Jalan Petaling Street which often draws comparisons with Singapore’s Chinatown. One of the best things is that you can pick up any electronic or clothing at a very yummy price. But it is advisable to haggle a bit. So, don’t forget to bargain. Make your wife take the centre stage during such occasions. Wives are, by general consent, much more dominant when it comes to bargaining skills.
Filling your tummy: Once you have filled your shopping bag, you should also put something inside your tummy. The cuisines out here will spoil you with choices and their deliciousness will leave a sweet taste in your tongue. Indian and Chinese cuisines are also very popular apart from the local ones.
Explore the museums: Kuala Lumpur packages also give you a great view of the museums. Places like the National Museum and the National Art Gallery offer tourists with an eclectic range of exhibits ranging from cultural interest to historical artifacts to famous paintings & portraits.
Look down from the Petronas Towers: The Petronas twin Tower is the most popular landmark in the city and a must-visit locale. Just climb up this gigantic tower (which is one of the tallest landmarks in the world) and get goose bumps as you look down. Your Kuala Lumpur holidays won’t be complete without a trip to this corner.
Get close to our feathery friends: Kuala Lumpur tour packages also give you a personal rendezvous with the macaws, storks, Hornbills and hundreds of other birds at the famed Kuala Lumpur Bird Park. Every traveler should make sure to visit this famous bird park.
Touring the temples: The city is also home to a myriad number of sedate temples like the Sri Maha Sakthi Mohambigai Amman Temple and the Thean Hou Temple. Do take out time to pay them a visit!
Visiting the KL Tower: The KL Tower is number 5 on the list of tallest landmarks in the world. It is another impressive tower which enthralls you with its jaw-dropping view.
Apart from these, there are ample other attractions to keep you hooked and busy throughout your holiday.
