Kuala Lumpur, the fastest growing metropolis of Southeast Asia with its economy and population, is the capital of Malaysia. Although the city on the East Malaysia Island hosts the busiest tourist population between May and July, it can be visited every season thanks to its mild climate. It is possible to travel without a visa to Kuala Lumpur, where you can travel by airline companies every day. The city that flocked to learn Malay culture has become an important stop for leisure and shopping-oriented travelers with its recent development. Petronas Twin Towers, considered as the symbol of the economic development of the country; Little India, Chinatown and Merdeka Square, where you can observe the cultures of ethnic groups in the city, stand out as places to visit. If you are a shopping enthusiast, you can go to Bukit Bintang District, you can find authentic goods in Pasar Sen. The night life of Kuala Lumpur, where you can taste many different flavors from Malay, Chinese and Indian cuisines, is happening in a variety of venues from Bukit Bintang and Bangsar breweries to night clubs where DJ performances are exhibited. To enjoy all of these beauties of Kuala Lumpur, you can stay in star-studded town centers or at low-cost facilities in areas like Chinatown. It is easy and cheap to get to the city and you can get to the place you want quickly by taking advantage of bus and rail systems.
Where to Stay in Kuala Lumpur Hotel Amenities
Golden Triangle: The region where shopping, entertainment, eating and drinking cultures and business experiences are most intense. There are dozens of large shopping malls in the region. The Petronas Twin Towers are immediately above this zone. Bukit Bintang is the most important district in the region. Many of the big shopping malls, restaurants and nightclubs are here. In other words, "where to stay in Kuala Lumpur", you need to choose "Bukit Bintang" as a region, if you are a central and active place. There are monorails and subway lines in place. So you can reach to your destination with no problem with public transportation.
Outside of Bukit Bintang, the Old City Center, known as Old Town, is mainly used for the city's main square, Merdaka Square, Sultan Abdul Samad Building and its surroundings. This is not very active in the evening hours, but you can go to Chinatown in a short walk.
Chinatown or Turkic and Chinatown is another moving point in Kuala Lumpur. It may be fun to visit here during daytime, but I think this is a question mark for accommodation.
In short, the regions in Kuala Lumpur are like this. Wherever you stay in Kuala Lumpur, your first choice is my Bukit Bintang. If you get a serious discount in a nice and luxurious hotel, be careful to be close to this area.
5 Star Hotels: If you want to stay quality and luxurious during your trip, you can take a look at these hotels: Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur, Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur, Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur, Fraser Residence Kuala Lumpur.
These hotels were booked for 80-100 euros per night when I prepared my writing.
4 Star Hotels: If you happen to be both a centrally located, quality hotel but a bit more affordable, check out Concorde Hotel Kuala Lumpur, Impiana KLCC Hotel and Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral. There were prices in the hotels between 60-90 euros per night.
3 Star Hotels: If you are on an economic trip and do not worry if the hotel is important to you, the below mentioned hotel is a 4 star hotel in Europe. You can take a look at these hotels: Le Apple Boutique Hotel @ KLCC, Hotel Transit Kuala Lumpur, Holiday Inn Express Kuala Lumpur City Center and City Comfort Hotel Bukit Bintang. As I mentioned above, I stayed in a 3 star hotel on my own trip but I was very satisfied with both the location and the quality of service.
Places to Visit in Kuala Lumpur
1. Petronas Twin Towers (Petronas Twin Towers)
At the top of our Kuala Lumpur destinations list are skyscrapers named Petronas Twin Towers, one of Malaysia's iconic structures. It was built at a height of 452 meters, costing US $ 1.6 to build and is the headquarters of Petronas Petroleum Holding. Between 1998-2004, he has hosted many buildings such as towers of the highest buildings in the world, shopping centers outside offices, natural science museum, symphony orchestra. The steel bridge between the 41st and 42nd floors of the skyscrapers is located at a height of 170m. If you want to see Kuala Lumpur from the top of one of the world's tallest buildings, you can check out the viewing terrace. Although the tower is 88 floors, the viewing terrace is located on the 86th floor at a height of 370 meters. Petronas Twin Towers can be intense, so do not take your business for granted and buy your ticket from the official website as I did. Pick up the ticket you bought by choosing the day and time and get a photocopy of your credit card, passport or passport at the time of purchase, and apply to the entry point of the cruise terrace for half an hour of your visit without waiting for the "online ticket" section. The entry to the cruise terrace is located on the lower floor of Petronas, you can follow the arrows and find them easily. During the visit you are first visiting the suspension bridge called Skybridge. After stopping here for 10 minutes, you are on your way to the top of the cruise, where you have 30 minutes. The viewing terrace is a bit small for me, as it is natural that the world's highest building, Burj Khalifa, is a bit worse than the viewing terrace. The tower is closed between Mondays and Fridays and between 09.00-21.00 it is possible to visit for 85 RM.
2. Merdeka Square (Dataran Merdeka)
Merdeka Square, designed by A.C Norman in 1884 in Tudor style, is the main square of Kuala Lumpur. During the colonial period, there are many important buildings belonging to that turn around the square where the cricket plays. Today, the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, the Royal Selangor Club, St Mary's Cathedral and Kuala Lumpur City Gallery are the most important structures in the region. In the middle of the square is a flag pole at a height of 100 m. On August 31, 1957, the "Union Jack" flag was lowered and replaced by the Malay flag, which is one of the most important events in the history of the country. The square deserves a short visit because it is both historic and the main square of the city, if not quite as remarkable and beautiful in terms of the place to visit. (Dilersen can start from here, you can easily reach here by taxi and then take a short walk to Chinatown.)
3. Batu Caves
Batu Caves or "Batu Caves" in Turkish name is a holy place of worship for Hindu, located 15 km from the city center. At a height of 43 meters, the cave where Lord Murugan's sculpture is located is also the world's largest Hindu cave temple. The Batu Caves, where you will often see photos of Kuala Lumpur's promotional images, are made up of three main sections: the Art Gallery Cave, located on the ground floor and containing the statue of many Hindu gods, the cave in the upper spot, the Dark Cave, which is accompanied by equipment and guides, and the Temple Cave section, accessed by ascending a total of 272 step stairs. Temple Cave is the most important point of Batu Caves. The little gods in the cave! etc. Meanwhile there are cave stairs and many monkeys around. It would be wise to carry food and drink in your hand because monkeys are not domestic and can occasionally disturb visitors. If you pay attention, you will not have any trouble. From the KTM Commander near the KL Sentral station, you can easily reach the Port Klang line by taxi as you can get on the train by the train.
4. Menara (KL Tower)
The Menara Tower is a communication tower with a total height of 421, which can be seen from many points of the city. Since the Menara Tower is located at an altitude of 94 meters above sea level, the landscape is much higher than the city's famous structure, Petronas, for navigational purposes. You can visit the viewing terrace and restaurant, which is located 276 meters above sea level. The normal visit fee is 52 RM (35 TL). If you've been to Petronas, I think you can escape this tower.
Kuala Lumpur is one of the most mysterious and disgusting spots on our list, "Chinatown" with Chinatown. There are a number of important places to visit in this neighborhood, a living area of the Chinese who have a significant share of the Kuala Lumpur population.
6. Central Market (Pasar Seni, Central Bazaar)
It is necessary to open a separate section for Central Market in Chinatown, namely Turkic and "Central Bazaar" because this is the most famous shopping spots in the city. The market based on 1888 dates from the 1940s. In the center of the city you can find souvenirs, clothing and handmade local goods from Malay, Chinese and Indian cultures. You can even find offices of world famous feng shui masters outside of shopping on the market. If you are planning to shop in Kuala Lumpur, you can spare some time in this market. I do not know why I did not like it very much the first day I went to the pajama, but I loved it more when I came back on the second day. So if you are considering shopping, take some time to Central Market and visit the Cinderella Cinderella. Sunday is open between 10.00-22.00.
7. Little India (Brickfields)
Kuala Lumpur also has a serious Indian population other than Malay and Chinese. The place where the Indians live their culture best is Little India, the region called "Little India". The area stretching between Jalan Travers and Jalan Tun Sambanthan streets is also called "Brickfields" or "Brick Field" because of the brick production here. To me, this is not as authentic and very beautiful as Little India in Singapore, but you can still visit the region if you want to feel yourself in India for a short while and taste Indian food. You can visit the shops here for shopping, but do not be too excited to find original products, the products sold are bad.
