When you’re in Malaysia, you simply can’t miss Kuala Lumpur! Like most of Southeast Asia, Kuala Lumpur has its authentic markets, city skyline views, temples, and some iconic landmarks recognized globally. Keep a couple of days aside on your Malaysia trip to Kuala Lumpur.

I visited Kuala Lumpur as a kid and I wished I had visited more places. If you have more time to stay in Kuala Lumpur longer, there are a good number of places to check out. But for those visiting for just 2 days, here’s my itinerary to Kuala Lumpur...

Kuala Lumpur is one of those cities that are so easy to underestimate. Earlier this year, our team was able to set foot in the Malaysian capital twice. But because of time constraints, we left craving more of the city. Even after each trip, we couldn’t shake off images of unticked boxes in our heads. So when Tourism Malaysia and Cebu Pacific invited us to tour the city one more time, we didn’t hesitate to grab the chance.

As a bustling global city, KL is bursting with both traditional and modern attractions to offer to tourists. Aside from the iconic skyscrapers, the city also has a number of urban parks, vibrant street art spaces, and temples. For the shopaholics, several small markets, big malls, and outlet centers provide discounted items and the latest brands. Hungry? Many restaurants boast an international menu, while night markets are lined with stalls serving authentic Malaysian dishes. You can also use Kuala Lumpur as a base for day trips to nearby destinations such as Putrajaya and Melaka!

If you’re KL-bound soon, here are some of the best things to do and places to visit in and around Kuala Lumpur.

Melbourne – a hip, trendy, and vibrant Australian city brimming with culture. Its neighbourhoods have personalities of their own, ranging from bohemian quarters with amazing restaurants and fashion boutiques, to edgy, artsy areas that are home to more tattoo shops than a city could possibly need. It’s impossible to truly understand the cultural centre that is Melbourne without actually living there. And it’s equally as difficult to explore it as a visitor.

I’ve been to Melbourne 4 times. Each time, discover a whole new side of the incredibly complicated and fascinating city that has topped the charts of the World’s Most Liveable Cities. But despite my frequent visits, I couldn’t possibly try to share the best that this city has to offer without some local help. Luckily, a few of my friends and locals were eager to share their tips and recommendations for things to do in Melbourne.
