Kuala Lumpur is a very busy city. With its many labyrinths and shopping malls, you can easily get lost in the area. But, if you have a plan of action and you have created your own itinerary that is replete with the destinations you want to visit, then everything will be smooth-sailing.

Having said that, you must determine first what you really want to do while you’re in KL. Do you want to eat? Do you want to get a girl escort? Or do you want to visit any of the historical sites?

Whatever the case may be, having a clear agenda can really help you narrow down your options. Do you know what will narrow down your choices even further? Reading this article.

Today, I am going to talk about some must-visit places in KL that you should definitely know about.


Yes, Malaysia actually has its own version of Chinatown. Located at the famous Petaling Street, their own Chinatown is filled with vendors that sell a variety of different items.

A lot of people say that you can hone your bargaining skills here simply because you can haggle items so that vendors will sell it to you at dirt-cheap prices.

Also, the good thing about Malaysia’s Chinatown is that although it is filled with plenty of vendors; they do not harass you or give too much of a hassle, which is a nice thing for travelers like yourself.

Kuala Lumpur Stadium

Even though the country is not really known to be one of the avid fanatics of football, there is still a stadium that is dedicated to the sport. If you are a fan of soccer (or football, as it is known in many countries), then head on over to the Kuala Lumpur Stadium.

Putrajaya Lake

You will be surprised to know that the Putrajaya Lake is actually a man-made lake. This was once a focal point of the Federal Administration and it is definitely something that you want to visit when you’re in Kuala Lumpur.

The lake is known for Kayaking and for a relatively inexpensive price, you can go kayaking alone or with a group of friends. While you’re kayaking, you can marvel at what nature has to offer.

Botanical Gardens

If you want to take a break from the busy city, the Botanical Gardens can provide you with the serenity and peace of quiet that you so cravenly demand.

There is nothing much here other than the fact that you can take a leisurely stroll while looking at the rich flora in the said area.

Sri Mahamariamman Temple

The Sri Mahamariamman Temple in Chinatown is the oldest Hindu Temple in KL. You can enter the temple free of charge, though you will have to pay a small fee if you want them to store your shoes.

The temple has a pretty unique architectural style and I have to admit that I am not a fan of it. However, my friends think that this is one of the most amazing things that they’ve ever seen, so I guess it is up to you to decide.

Low Yat Plaza

If you are into gadgets and you want a place where you can buy them at great prices, then the Low Yat Plaza is the one for you. This mall is known to locals as ‘the IT mall’ and you can find many gadget brands inside.
