Everything you need to know for a successful day in Kuala Lumpur

The Malaysian capital is a multicultural city worth visiting. I recommend starting your day early to make the most of it 😉


For a successful morning, what could be better than starting with some exercise? Let’s begin by climbing the steps of Batu Caves. Batu Caves are the largest Hindu shrine in Malaysia. It’s a gem of the country that you definitely shouldn’t miss. However, beware of the monkeys. They won’t hesitate to steal some of your belongings or food. So, stay vigilant.

I recommend heading to Batu Caves relatively early to avoid the crowds. The temple opens at 6 a.m, but if you go around 8:30 a.m, you won’t be bothered by the crowds.

Get your good shoes ready, and I’ll see you at the top!

After a good visit, let’s head to China Town. It’s a friendly neighborhood for strolling and shopping. You’ll find everything you need there, as well as a huge variety of food. So, it’s the perfect place to take a little break and taste some local specialities.

No time to waste! Not far away is the Central Market. It’s a very pleasant place for shopping and finding souvenir shops. You’ll find restaurants nearby to have lunch.


Let’s start our afternoon by heading to Eco Forest. In this park, you can enjoy the greenery of the city and have a beautiful view of the KL Tower, which rises to 421 meters. You won’t be far from the monument, so you can take the opportunity to go to the top.

After these visits, I invite you to go to the base of the Petronas Towers, the symbol of Kuala Lumpur, to admire these giants of steel. You can take the opportunity to visit their huge shopping center. You can also go to the top of the towers and have an amazing view of the city. But in my opinion, the most interesting part is the huge park behind the towers: KLCC Park. You’ll find beautiful vegetation, magnificent bodies of water… This little walk in the park offers a great view of the towers but, above all, allows you to be in contact with a small piece of nature.

After all these activities, the day will be almost over. You can find a small restaurant and wait until nightfall to see the towers light up.

Here’s the recipe for a successful day in the Malaysian capital 🙂
