One day in Kuala Lumpur - Things to do

Having decided to have a short visit in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia? Or perhaps having a lay over in Kuala Lumpur? You might want to consider of doing these things instead of staying in the airport. 

Going to KLCC #1
Coming to Malaysia without going to KLCC (Kuala Lumpur Convention Center), your journey will never be feeling complete as where it is close to the Twin Tower of Malaysia.

Visiting Batu caves #2
Batu Caves is another famous Hinduism temple that it located in Gombak street, Selangor Malaysia. From the front face, you will find a huge Buddhist statue and a very colorful stairs that connect the ground to the caves in the hill. In fact, it is a limestone hill that constructed into a Buddhist temple.

Before entering the caves, you need to climb up the stairs. Along the way up, you can find monkeys play around the stairs. The monkeys are quite entertaining. Once you reach the cave, you will feel the Indian atmosphere. Even, mostly of the visitors are Indian as its a Buddhist temple.

From KL Center, you can take a grab car as this temple is out of Go KL bus routes map. It will take you around 15-20 minutes regardless the traffic congestion.

It varies, depends on your starting point. However from KL Center, the cost will be around MYR 20.00.

Going to Pasar Seni #3
If you are looking for souvenirs on budget and other good stuffs to bring home, you can visit Pasar Seni. This market provides many kinds of souvenirs such as key chains, shirts, chocolates, and more.

How to get there?
You can simply use Go KL bus to get to Pasar Seni. It will take you around 5-7 minutes from Bukit Bintang. 

How much does it cost?
Its FREE by Go KL Bus.

Sightseeing in Dataran Merdeka and KL Gallery#4
Another best thing to do in Kuala Lumpur is visiting Merdeka square along with KL Gallery and Museum Batik. If you are coming to visit this area, you will find it interesting as the buildings have European-look architecture. This is probabily because Malaysia was colonised by England before it got its independence on 31st August 1957.

I suggest you to come here in the afternoon as the weather will be much hotter in midday. 

Walking around 5 minutes to the South, you will find the KL Gallery where you can explore cultural exhibitions, gift-making workshop even souvenirs and art for sale.

If you have more times left, you can spend it to explore more around the city using Go KL Bus. All you have to do is follwing the routes map. 

After spending our time in KLCC, Batu Caves, Pasar Seni, Dataran Merdeka. We decided to take a rest while exploring around in the city using Go KL Bus. This bus is quite convenient to use as it provides a free wifi to stay connected to the internet. 

PS : You need to be aware that sometimes the driver drives the bus so fast and step the brake so sudden. Therefore, make sure to sit properly haha.

Also, you can stop by and try roti canai. Well this food is actually not Malaysian food, its Indian haha. However, it tastes really good even better than roti canai that I have ever tasted in Makassar. This probabily because it is made by Indian haha.

How to get there?
You can find the nearest terminal of the bus from where are currently wandering. 

How much does it cost?
Its FREE by Go KL Bus.
