Your long and not-so friendly travel guide about KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA

I decided to accept the fate that I’ll make a terrible “budget traveler.” Also, that this blog weren’t be a primary source of those “traveling-here-and-there-in-a-budget” guides. On most of our travels ever since Quennie and I got married, we still miss out numerous places from the itineraries that I prepared. As for our actual expenses, they mostly inflated almost twice my estimated budget; to think that they’re mostly from the “travel guides” that I read. As a self-proclaimed miser myself and an “advocate” of cost-cutting (LOL!), it frustrates me most of the time. Same goes with myself wanting to visit as many places as possible whenever I’m in another place.

But who knows? We might be able to work these things out. It’s not that we’re not trying at all.

Anyway, my wife and I did a cross border travel to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Singapore for our honeymoon trip last year. But finding out that she’s pregnant with our first-born days before our trip, we tailored our usual itinerary to some activities not too strenuous. Then again, fast forward to many events in our lives, we ended up with the same set of round trip tickets just recently.

Compared to our 2017 trip, we we’re able to visit many places during our very recent trip in both countries that we visited. But being “laidback” and somewhat “undisciplined” as we are, we still missed out some other places that we planned to visit.




I could say that it’s a must to dedicate a day or two for exploring the essential places in the capital city. Smartphone travel apps such as Klook or KKDay offers various walking tours which takes at least half a day. Although there are lots of activities to do and places to visit around Kuala Lumpur, it was said that many of the amazing places in Malaysia were outside the capital city in which I could not testify yet.

As for my wife and I, we had 4 nights in KL last year and had 3 days during our recent trip on the same place yet still missed out some places to visit. However, I was able to compile both of our trips and was able to list down my “incomplete” suggestions to help you in planning the itinerary in visiting this city for the first time. Well, I may be able to do a complete and budget itinerary the next time I return here. But I’m already telling you that it may take a while since after this trip, I ought to do our next trips to new places for the next few years.

Hoping that this would be helpful either you’re doing a cross-border travel with other countries or focusing on other Malaysian states. 

I arranged it according to which places we visited or activities that we did first starting last year.


1. Climb the KL Towers

My wife and I were only enjoyed two major places in this particular city during our trip last year: the KL Tower and the Petronas Twin Tower.

Also known as Menara Kuala Lumpur, KL Tower joins the (not that) long list of must-visit places in Kuala Lumpur. Having a height of 335 meters to the roof and 421 meters to the tip of its antenna, it’s somehow safe for me to say that it’s the second tallest structure along Kuala Lumpur next to the Petronas Towers. But standing above the hill called Bukit Nanas (translation: Pineapple Hill), the rooftop of the tower had the highest viewpoint in the city that was at least available to the public.

There are various attractions located both the top and at the base of the tower such as two observation decks, restaurants (including the revolving restaurant at the roof deck), a mini-zoo, a forest reserve, cultural center, and much more. But being a self-proclaimed “budgetarian” as I am, what my wife and I able to do were only climb the lower observation deck and enjoy the view for MYR 52.00 (approx USD 13.00) each person.

KL Collage 1

Before leaving the KL Towers, we’re able to take a selfie with the 100+ year old Jelutong tree. Let me tell you that various measures were done by the government in order to preserve this old tree even though a tower is to be built such as shifting the position of the tower and installing piles beside the tree that acts as its retaining wall to prevent it from falling down. Well, that’s too much of discussing any geotechnical engineering terms.

My wife and I also decided to take home a personalized magnet and printed photo of us as souvenir from climbing the tower. Although honestly, I find it expensive. As far as I can remember, I got both of them at MYR 60.00 (approx USD 15.00).

2. Have a selfie with the Petronas Twin Towers (both day and night)

Being the icon of Kuala Lumpur, I can’t blame that most (although not all) tourists visiting KL had a primary purpose of having selfie with the Twin Towers. If you’ll ask me which time should people do those selfies, I would rather say “anytime.” Why not try to do both? Besides, it’s picturesque both day and night.

KL Collage 3

As for my wife and I on our 2017 trip, we walked straight to KLCC after visiting the KL Towers. Yes, it’s walkable. But not a typical humans’ type of walkable if you know what I mean. It’s approximately 2 kilometers. So can you just imagine that? I somehow feel like a horrible husband now for letting my wife walk that long during that time. But given the distance from KL Towers going to the nearest train station, it’s slightly shorter. So, doing what needs to be done. Of course, I did asked her first before us doing it.

We’re thankful that the sun is still up when we reached the towers’ glorious facade although almost going down. My wife and I were able to capture those photos, both day and night. My camera’s quality is terrible at night though.

KL Collage 5

Although its observation deck were allowed for public viewing, my wife and I decided not to climb. We decided to set aside those MYR 82.00 (approx USD 21.00) entrance fee for each person and spend it on other things. Besides, we’re already able to climb the KL Towers which viewdeck is higher. Even during our 2018 travel to the same country, we decided to ditch doing it. But who knows? We might do it the next time we go back here.

Oh and by the way, don’t be surprised if you see people lying down just to take a great shot. I also did it myself (LOL!).

Nearest train station: KLCC Station (Kelana Jaya Line)

3. Enjoy the greenery or watch the dancing fountain at KLCC Park

If there’s one place that my wife and I were able to enjoy during both our 2017 and 2018 trip to KL, it’s the KLCC Park. It’s a people’s park right outside the Twin Towers and the Suria KLCC Mall. 

KL Collage 8

Not exaggerating nor overreacting but I find going to this park a little breathe of fresh air (maybe at least for me) from the typical KL image which are mostly skyscrapers and mosques. Well, according to research, the primary purpose why the architect designed the park.

KL Collage 12

Its main features consist of a man-made lake with decorative fountain, a children’s playground, and foot paths for running or walking.

KL Collage 7

On our trip last year, my wife and I decided to kill the rest of our time sitting on the benches or the grasses around the park; watching people playing around the park and some on the water (not sure if allowed though). We waited till sundown and saw more of its fountain.

KL Collage 11

Apparently, the park’s fountains dances almost every night; almost every hour to be more precise; with each hour corresponds to different performance. Of course, we watched it, sitting somewhere near. Even took several videos. Something that my wife and I even repeated doing during our recent trip.

Nearest train station: KLCC Station (Kelana Jaya Line)

Address: Kuala Lumpur City Centre, 50088, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Open Hours: 7:00 AM to 10:00 PM (Monday – Sunday)


4. Explore Batu Caves in the suburbs

Most blogs that I read before during the time that I was planning for our itinerary in KL says that visiting Batu Caves is a must. Although I really don’t understand why since technically, it’s not in Kuala Lumpur but in the State of Selangor approximately 20 km from the former. But going on our way here, I understood that maybe its accessibility from the city included it on the list.

My wife and I were only successful in visiting a glimpse of it being “lazy pricks” as we are. Technically, we only reached the entrance and failed to go up to that 272 steps of stairway. But from that glimpse, we’re able to see how amazing our experience can be. What more if we explored it fully? Maybe we’ll be able to visit again next time.

KL Collage 4


All I can say is, if you’re interested more about visiting caves and at the same time, wanted to experience the colorful Hindu culture; then including this place in your itinerary is a must. You may dedicate a day or a half in exploring depending on your preference. But remember to be respectful to their practices. If it contradicts what you believe, at least try not to be rude by breaking their rules even on the simplest ones such as removing all footwear when entering their temples.

I already wrote our trip to Batu Caves in a separate blog post. (READ: Exploring Malaysia’s BATU CAVES: finally but not “really”).

Nearest train station: Batu Caves Station (KTM Commuter Line)

Address: Gombak, 68100 Batu Caves, Selangor, Malaysia

Open Hours: 6:00 AM to 9:00 PM (Monday – Sunday)


5. Discover history and amazing architecture

I think history could be one of the reasons why people travel; as well as architecture. I can say that the sequel of our Kuala Lumpur trip (our 2018 trip) are more on about these two things that I just said. With only the map that we got from our 2017 trip and somehow doesn’t have an idea of where to go, we’d let our foot decide on where will it take us and how many places can we able to discover.

We started right after visiting the Batu Caves, going back to KTM Sentul, riding the bus going to KL Sentral and ate our lunch there. Then, we took the train going back to where we started: the Masjid Jamek Station.


Masjid Jamek 

Located right across the train station of the same name, Masjid Jamek (AKA Jamek Mosque / Sultan Abdul Samad Jamek Mosque) was said to be one of the oldest places of worship to those who practice Islam. In fact, it served as Kuala Lumpur’s main mosque until 1965, the national mosque, or Masjid Negara, was built.


My wife and I only made it to the entrance of the mosque as we saw the “CLOSED” sign in front. I honestly wondered why since I knew that it’s not Friday nor their prayer time of the day when we arrived there. Although we saw some fellow foreign tourists still entering the building, we decided not to risk by just following their rules. We took a few photos of their facade then went out of our way already.

KL Collage 10

Oh and by the way, the best view of the Masjid Jamek can be seen on the rear part of Sultan Abdul Samad Building (by the river).


Nearest train station: Masjid Jamek Station (Kelana Jaya Line / Sri Petaling Line / Ampang Line)

Address:  Jalan Tun Perak, City Centre, 50050 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Open Hours:  08:30 AM – 12:30 PM / 02:30 PM – 04:30 PM (Closed on FRIDAYS)


Sultan Abdul Samad Building

Masjid Jamek is technically located at the junction of two rivers: Klang and Gombak River. We crossed the Gombak River through a walkway bridge. Of course, take some photos on the bridge. Then poof! Arrived at the rear part of what is said to be one of the most famous buildings in Kuala Lumpur.

KL Collage 9

Simply being called Government Offices during its early years, this Islamic-inspired piece of architecture housed several government agencies from past even until the present time. It was then named after the Selangor Sultan Abdul Samad in year 1974.


Contrary to how easy it was to look for instagrammable spots on the rear part of the building, searching on the facade frustrates me as the building is in front of a busy highway. Let’s include several tourists buses stopping in front. However, crossing the highway and setting back a little more, I was able to take a photo or two. Although I really can’t tell if it’s photobomb-free; partially, I’m proud of these photos I took.

Since entering the building never crossed my mind as we still had lots of places of visit, I honestly don’t have an idea if entering the building is allowed or how much should I pay to enter. Now give me an idea if it was.


Nearest train station: Masjid Jamek Station (Kelana Jaya Line / Sri Petaling Line / Ampang Line)

Address: Jalan Raja, Kuala Lumpur City Centre, 50050 Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


Merdeka Square

Also known as “Independence Square,” it’s a huge park square situated in front of the Sultan Abdul Samad Building. This place holds a huge significance to Malaysian history as this is where the very first time the flag of Malaysia was raised in August 31, 1957. Since then, the people celebrate their independence day each year at this very place. Well, that’s too much for history for now.


My wife and I just sat for a while on the fountain nearby then decided to go on our way. I wasn’t able to take a photo of the flagpole used during that historical day out of my frustration to take photobomb-free photos. But scanning through my archived photos, I realized that I accidentally took it from Sultan Abdul Samad Building.


Nearest train station: Masjid Jamek Station (Kelana Jaya Line / Sri Petaling Line / Ampang Line)

Address: Jalan Raja, Kuala Lumpur City Centre, 50050 Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


Kuala Lumpur City Gallery

From Merdeka Square, my wife and I walked a little further then arrived at the City Gallery. Contrary to it’s name, it’s not just a city gallery / museum as the Tourist Information Center, where people can ask queries regarding the City’s tourists spots. Also, there are cafes and souvenir shop inside. Although we failed to do it, people should go here first when visiting Kuala Lumpur.

Well, upon finding out about the MYR 10.00 (approx USD 2.52) entrance fee, we decided not to enter and just move to our next destination. But as far as I know, the museum contains exhibits that teach people of how Malaysia came to place. Also, situated here is a huge “miniature model” of the whole city of Kuala Lumpur. When I say huge, I mean it’s not just a scale model. Thus, a fascinating must-see for architecture-lovers. As for someone whose starting to love architecture (and an architect-wannabe), not entering here is a huge regret for me.

But on the brighter side, my wife and I managed to take a photo with the iconic I <3 KL structure located also here.


Nearest train station: Masjid Jamek Station (Kelana Jaya Line / Sri Petaling Line / Ampang Line)

Address: Dataran Merdeka, 27, Jalan Raja, 50050 Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Open Hours:  09:00 AM – 06:30 PM (Monday to Sunday)


National Textile Museum

Located just beside the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, the National Textile Museum showcases Malaysia’s (particularly Kuala Lumpur’s) culture and heritage when it comes to clothing and fabrics.

Again, we failed to get inside but was able to take a snapshot of a portion of its Islamic-inspired facade.

TRIVIA: The design of Masjid Jamek, Sultan Abdul Samad Building, and the National Textile Museum were spearheaded (or just contributed) by and architect named Arthur Hubback.

Other suggested places to visit:

Here are some other places that my wife and I included in our itinerary if it weren’t the time constraints that made us failed in visiting it:

  • National Monument
  • National Museum
  • National Mosque (Masjid Negara)
  • King’s Palace


6. Shop your souvenirs at KL Central Market 

I think that it’s not just photos tourists wanted to take home with them. Well, other things that remind them of visiting and experiencing this place. But the only question is “where to buy these things?”


With the map I obtained in the airport as my reference, I discovered that the Kuala Lumpur’s Central Market could be that place. I would compare this to my own country’s Divisoria, although not as crowded. It’s the same in terms of the impression that most affordable souvenirs (although obviously, not really as cheap as my country’s Divisoria) can be purchased here compared to buying at the airport or the malls.


From usual souvenirs such as figurines, magnets, key chains up to bags and clothing can be bought here.


Oh and by the way, I would suggest that you can try their instant coffee and milk tea back home. We bought single pack of both Hazelnut flavored coffee and milk tea (green pack) for MYR 15.00 (for every 3 packs) and I attest that it’s really good. Not to mention how many hours I stayed awake after drinking just one cup.

Also, I think chocolate lovers would also love to take home a jar (or two) of their famous Beryl’s Chocolate. My wife and I bought 3 jars for MYR 21.00.

Since we started travelling (together and individually), we started collecting magnets for our fridge. So of course, we bought several of them along the way. We bought all three Malaysia magnets for MYR 15.00.


Well, my wife loved shopping. But for the opposites like me, I saw a fish spa inside so it could be a nice way to relax while waiting for your shopaholic companion (haha!). I wasn’t able to try it though. Besides, I can’t imagine fishes dying because of my foot (LOL!).


There’s a foodcourt inside just in case you went hungry in the midst of shopping. For another time, we didn’t dined here.


Nearest train station: Pasar Seni Station (Kelana Jaya Line / Sungai Buloh – Kajang Line)

Address: Jalan Hang Kasturi, City Centre, 50050 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Open Hours:  10:00 AM – 09:30 PM (Monday to Sunday)



  • Kindly ask for permission first when taking photos of the store goods. Some vendors doesn’t allow taking of photos unless you buy something from them (of course… lol!)
  • My wife and I walked to Central Market through a bridgeway behind Sultan Abdul Samad Building. As usual, it’s not the typical definition of “walking distance” but indeed, possible.



7. Or the Chinatown

Several steps from outside the Central Market, we arrived at what they call the “Chinatown.” It’s also a marketplace with stores selling different goods that tourists can take home with them.


As someone who lived in a country with a place of the same name, I already expected what this “Chinatown” that we’re about to visit would look like. But I honestly wondered how did almost all of the country that I visited came up with building a certain place called “Chinatown” in them (LOL!).


My wife and I didn’t bothered buying anything here since we spent too much from the Central Market already. We literally just walked around the street then went straight to the train station already. There’s also food choices in case you get hungry while trying to buy something here.


Nearest train station: Pasar Seni Station (Kelana Jaya Line / Sungai Buloh – Kajang Line)

Address: Jalan Hang Kasturi, City Centre, 50050 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


8. Go to the Malls

Most Filipinos, like us, are “Mall Rats.” I don’t know if the rest of the Asians do. Meaning, they loved going to shopping malls well for different reasons. I’m saying it within the purest of my intention so I hope I’m not offending anyone about it. Besides, it’s not even bad in the first place.

Although I’m thinking of prioritizing going to some places other than shopping malls each time we’re going to different places especially that my current job here in the Philippines involved many of those shopping malls, we still managed to visit few malls around the city. Even repeatedly stayed on some of them and here are the list:


Suria KLCC

The very mall underneath the Twin Towers, Suria KLCC is one of the most-visited malls in the city. If tourists aren’t taking their selfies outside the towers nor watching the dancing fountain outside, they maybe strolling around the mall (and even shopping). Seeing mostly international (and expensive) brands, what my wife and I mostly did (for both trips) were just strolling around the mall (and eat). They had their food court in case you’re wondering where to eat given that restaurants were expensive too.

Aside from the shops, the mall is also home to the Petronas Art Gallery, Petrosains Discovery Centre, and Aquaria KLCC which art and science lovers of all ages would love visiting. We honestly failed visiting these but just letting you know.

Address: Kuala Lumpur City Centre, 50088, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Open Hours: 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM (Monday – Sunday)


Avenue K

For those who were searching for an alternative mall to visit, Avenue K is just across the Suria KLCC. In here, brands are much more familiar and more affordable (although not really my kind of “affordable.”) and food choices are vast. We’ll choose going to this mall over Suria KLCC (only in my opinion actually).

In fact, my wife and I we’re able to dine into a Korean restaurant inside last year while on our most recent trip, we’re able to dine in to their food court upstairs along with their food crawl on the basement area. Also, this is the place we bought her pair of shoes.

Sunway Putra

I would only be recommending this mall to those who we’re checked in nearby like Sunway Putra Hotel or for those who will be visiting the Putra World Trade Center. Albeit its building facade is colorful (which I failed to take pics of) and somehow grammable which is somehow a reason to visit. Compared to Avenue K, there are much more brands to choose from in case your shopping cravings start haunting you. Well, we honestly didn’t intend to visit this mall. My wife and I so happens to be checked in to the nearby home stay. Thus, gave us a chance to visit.


Nearest train station: PWTC Station (Ampang Line / Sri Petaling Line), Putra Station (KTM Komuter)

Address: No 100, Jalan Putra, 50350 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Open Hours: 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM (Monday – Sunday)


NU Sentral Mall at KL Central

From Batu Caves, my wife and I decided to go straight to KL Central instead of the usual return route (LRT Sentul Station). There, we’re able to discover that there’s a mall in one of Kuala Lumpur’s busiest place and largest transportation hub. I bet that this could be one of the most visited malls in the City knowing that most commuters emanates or were stopping here. Despite that, my wife and I only ate our lunch here at their food court then went on to our next destination.

Nearest train station: KL Central Station

Address: No. 201 Jalan Tun Sambanthan 50470 Kuala Lumpur

Berjaya Times Square

My wife and I happens to be checked in at a hotel in Bukit Bintang area during our 2017 trip here. Upon alighting the KL Monorail at Bukit Bintang Station on our way back to the place we’re staying, we’re able to discover the mall in Berjaya Times Square. As far as I know, we just bought something to eat then went on our way.

Aside from the mall, I discovered that it’s a high-rise tower that had condominiums and indoor amusement park. Also, some buses going to Singapore had this mall as a starting point so I listed it as one of those really interested malls to visit albeit I wasn’t really able to fully explore this.

Nearest train station: Bukit Bintang Station (KL Monorail)

Address: 1, Jalan Imbi, Imbi, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Open Hours: 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM (Monday – Sunday)


9. Travel to nearby states

There are lots of other states in Western Malaysia to explore. For those who can’t go too far from Kuala Lumpur, I would suggest exploring more of Selangor and Putrajaya. You may also go North to Penang Island or South to Johor Bahru.

It would be a great idea if I’d be able to do it. In the future I guess. But you may do it ahead of mine. I would love to hear a store of how you did it.


Some other notes:

Before I end this blog that I’ve been drafting for months now (LOL! It’s hard to balance my career in engineering and in blogging), let me give you some other notes that may help you:

  • VISA REQUIREMENTS: For Philippine Passport holders like my wife and I, we can enter Malaysia without a visa and can stay for up to 30 days as long as the purpose is only Tourism and Social Visits. It would still be best to contact their Immigration Office for details if visa is required for your passport. (Visit: Immigration Department Malaysia / Read: Visa Policy of Malaysia)
  • WHICH FOOD TO EAT?? Aside from places, there are also lots of food to try on when visiting this city. On where to try them, there are food courts, restaurants, and even the streets depending on your preference. Well, my wife and I went mostly on foodcourts since we’re still concerned about our safety and at the same time, still wanted to save some bucks for some other expenses. I was able to write a separate blog about those Malay dishes (Read: Must-try Malaysian signature dishes: KUALA LUMPUR AND BEYOND).
  • WHERE TO STAY?? Torn in choosing to stay in a local homestay or a hotel? Well, my wife and I tried both. We checked in to a hotel during our 2017 trip and booked through AirBnB during our 2018 trip. Let me enumerate them:
    • FURAMA HOTEL: A family friend whom is currently living in Singapore recommended this hotel if we preferred staying at Bukit Bintang area in KL. I also looked at the reviews done by the customers and most were satisfied by this hotel’s services. Hearing that Bukit Bintang is a shopping district of KL, as well as having no idea about the preferred area in KL to stay, I decided to book thru and availed their Deluxe Room.
      • Pros: Room and toilet is clean, huge space, had their own living room, exceptional breakfast buffet (they’re changing their menu every day), comfortable bed (clean sheets, comforter, and pillowcases), had convenience stores and restaurants nearby. Most of all, my wife is satisfied (LOL!).
      • Cons: Although the “family friend” recommended this hotel, I really can’t fully recommend it especially for people that are really particular with its accessibility to public transportation. Yes, there’s a nearby bus stop but for people who preferred taking the trains like us, it will take a 15-20 minute walk to the nearest station. Also, despite it’s on Bukit Bintang area, it’s a little far from the shopping area itself. But my wife and I still enjoyed our stay.
      • Nearest Train Station: Bukit Bintang Station (KL Monorail)
      • Address: 136, Jalan Changkat Thambi Dollah, Pudu, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
      • How to book? How much? My wife and I was able to book a room for approximately PHP 2,300.00 (MYR 175.00 or USD 44.00) per night. But the price will depend on how many days before your trip and when you’ll be taking your trip. You may check for the prices. Just search for Furama Bukit Bintang or click on this link: BOOK HERE.
      • Overall Rating: 8/10KL Collage 17
    • REGALIA RESIDENCES: My wife and I decided to book thru AirBnB during our recent trip on the same destination upon seeing a Facebook post about this place. Since I was already able to write a separate blog for it, I decided not to provide too much details here. But if you insist, look at this view from their roofdeck. (Read: REGALIA RESIDENCES and the rest of “Where to stay in KUALA LUMPUR?”)
  • GOING AROUND THE CITY: There are lots of options on how to navigate yourself around Kuala Lumpur. You may take the bus, train, or taxi. But for my wife and I, we’re recommending the easiest one which is the train. Their train system, for me, is advanced and easy-to-study. Bus routes, on the other hand, are too many so we prefer the former regardless of its proximity from our accommodation.
  • WEATHER: You may wanted to check the weather. But during our visits (February 2017 and March 2018), it didn’t rain. But mostly hot. So I don’t think there’s winter here.
  • MONEY CHANGERS: Currency in Malaysia is Ringgit (MYR or RM) which is equivalent to USD 0.25 or PHP 13.28 (as of July 4, 2018). There’s lots of places around KL to have your currency changed. But if you’re not sure if they had your currency, it’s better to have it exchanged to USD on your airport.
  • Malaysians in Kuala Lumpur had various beliefs albeit more than half practices Islam. So I would recommend that you take it into consideration when planning your OOTDs. But when my wife and I went there, I think they’re not really that conservative. But it pays to be safe eh?
