Things to do in KL, Malaysia
Hello, beautiful people ❤️
You know that I speak mainly about beauty on my blog and social media but sometimes I feel like changing the subject with posts about travelling. Today it's all about Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia.
As always I will be short and will share only the information that I think it's important and interesting. We visited Malaysia in July this year, just few weeks after Ramadan and stayed four days in Kuala Lumpur and three day in the beautiful island Langkawi. The plan was to spend half of the week doing nothing around the pool and the rest of days to get some city life and now looking back I think that it was a great idea. Actually many tourists do the same, they land in KL, stay there for a night or two and then they are off to some of the many islands. By the way if you want to learn more about Langkawi you can read my post here.
The first thing that we went to see when we landed (after we had a good nap and I bought some clothes because Emirates lost my trolley) was of course the iconic Petronas Twin Towers. The famous building was walking distance from us as we were staying just opposite the Pavilion Mall, so we actually went there couple of times. For all the selfie lovers I must inform you that taking picture with it is almost 'Missing Impossible' lol. I personally tried many different angles and places and ended up with having hundreds of pictures which I even didn't like lol Also, when we were there the weather was very cloudy and that made all of photographs very grey, luckily it couldn't hide the beauty of the city. 💜
Someone recommended us to go to The Kuala Lumpur Tower for the lovely view of the city and we decided to give it a try. As you can see from the pictures above the view is indeed absolutely breathtaking 😍 and totally worth going there. If you aren't afraid of heights you can get some amazing pictures in the glass box. Just keep in mind that the queue for it was very long and you are allow only 1 or 2 minutes there and this is definitely not enough time. I really wanted to get some nice pics there but once I stepped on the glass I was petrified, I couldn't move and I couldn't let go off the steel handle. Something else that I have to mention as well, the queue for the lifts of the tower is extremely long! I believe we waited for hours! Also the AC wasn't working properly, the staff was very rude with us and was just picking random people from the queue and letting them forward for no reason. Long story short.. upstairs was lovely but getting there was a nightmare!
Another tourist spot that we paid a visit to the same day (yep, I am wearing the same clothes lol) was Batu Caves but it wasn't our 'cup of tea' mainly because it was quite dirty there so we left right after we climbed the famous stairs and had a quick look inside the caves.
As I foodie, one thing that I really appreciated about Malaysia was the food! It was very, very fresh and tasty everywhere you go 😍 If you're not into Asian food, at least try the pastries from the second picture! There're many pastries shops on their main street and in the malls and most of them taste great! Yummyyy!
Last but not least.. Don't forget to stop for a second and have a look at the beautiful sunset of Kuala Lumpur!
