Kuala Lumpur travel tips

Whilst many of the areas and districts attract tourist attention with the generally cheap hotels in Kuala Lumpur, those with convenient access to public transport, such as Bukit Bintang, make the experience of getting around much easier. This area, as well as KLCC, Kampung Baru and KL Central, offer easy access to the KL Light Rail Transit, the KL Monorail and the Kuala Lumpur MRT SBK Line. These transportation options make it easy to get around the city from most hotels in Kuala Lumpur, as well as visiting neighboring Malaysian cities. In addition to the above-mentioned rail-based transportation option, the city operates networks of bus routes. The official fleet of buses was recently upgraded and refurbished, making the option all the more appealing. When you are in a specific area, say Chinatown, and plan to explore it, we recommend going by foot to get a feel for this vibrant Malaysian city.

Where to stay in Kuala Lumpur

For those traveling on business, you may prefer to find accommodation as close to the CBD as possible. Ayu Hotel in Chow Kit is popular with those traveling for professional purposes, thanks to its proximity to some up-and-coming business hubs in the city. The tourist on a budget may prefer the Aloft Kuala Lumpur or the Seri Pacific closer to central Kuala Lumpur.

Learn about attractions and sights in Kuala Lumpur

There is something surreal about the Petronas Towers in the KLCC district. Architectural masterpieces bring enchanting futurism to a city that fittingly serves as a local cultural melting pot. The area is easily accessed by train or bus and offers resplendent views from any vantage point. Chinatown in Jalan Petaling District is an attraction in its own right. A big grouping of market stalls selling just about anything you could imagine is brought to life by the vibrant Malaysian atmosphere. Easily accessed by train or bus, this is a must-see on your visit. The Batu Caves and Sri Subramaniam Temple located north of the city is a sight to behold and the prehistoric caves that host an old temple is a one-of-a-kind attraction.

Bukit Bintang is one of the most popular areas for bars, restaurants and the general nightlife scene. Located on the block of Changkat Bukit Bintang, you can find Havana Bar & Grill, an excellent choice for both a restaurant and nightclub experience. The food is a twist on Latin cuisine, and you can easily access restaurants in the area by bus from the Jalan Pudu bus stop, by tram from the Bukit Bintang tram stop, or by train from the Kuala Lumpur Station in the city center. Located along Jalan Mesui, Pisco Bar is a spacious two-story establishment specializing in cocktails. This bar is renowned for its great vibe and mix of locals and tourists. The city's leading jazz bar, No Black Tie, is an unpretentious live music venue with a great vibe and a sophisticated crowd and the city's well-rounded public transport systems will allow you easy access to this jazz bar by bus, train or taxi. However, traveling via taxi would be more convenient. Should you be in the mood for a late-night of festivities, Twenty One kitchen and bar has you covered. If you are after a traditional Malaysian dining experience, you need to look no further than Restoran Taman Seputeh, situated just a short bus ride into Jalan Telok Pulai. The nearest bus stop to the Malaysian restaurant is the KL1395 bus stop, along the Jalan Klang Lama expressway.

The Chinese New Year is celebrated in Chinatown in January every year. You can reach Chinatown by bus or train from the KL Central Station. While Chinatown serves as the center of the celebration, it echoes throughout the city and in nearly every district in Kuala Lumpur. If it is your first time witnessing the Malaysian celebration of the Chinese New Year, we recommend doing so in China town, where most of the entertainment takes place. Thaipusam is a very important Hindu celebration that occurs in January or February each year. This one, however, may not be for the faint of heart. The ceremony, which parades in all areas of the city to the Batu Caves, features a lot of body piercing. Batu Caves has its very own train stop which makes it convenient to get to and from the KL Central Station.
