A Must to Visit

China Town

Best visited at night, Chinatown caters for shopping addicts on a budget. From souvenirs to cheap T-shirts, shoes, and delicious hawker treats, Chinatown is a force to be reckoned with.

 

Central Market

Basically being a congregation of local souvenir shops, Central Market is where you can do your shopping for your sisters, mamas and etc. Filled with traditional and local souvenirs alike, it is a place that you MUST check out. It has been opened since 1936 and also consists of the Kasturi Walk where you could pick up local cakes called Nonya Kuih and other such snacks.

 

Little India

Have your fill of Malaysian Indian Food (which is very different from India’s Indian food) and shopping for traditional Indian clothes and accessories.  From assorted sweet cakes to Banana Leaf Rice for lunch, it’s the best kind of food for vegans, vegetarian’s and even meat lovers! Look out for the elephant fountain and the drawings on the floors!

 

Batu Caves

The word “Batu” means rock. The Batu Caves is a Hindu Temple worship site and upon arrival, you will come across 272 steps which you will have to climb in order to reach the limestone cave temples. There is also 140 ft high statue of Lord Muruga which happens to be the tallest Lord Muruga statue in the world. The cave is one of the most popular Hindushrines outside India.

  

Petronas Twin Towers

The twin towers are one of the most famous towers in the world and in order to go up the towers, you would have to wake up really early in the morning to buy tickets. You will get to go up to the bridge that is in the middle and further if you like to the observation deck. There is also Aquaria (a walk through aquarium) and a shopping mall as well as the Petronas Science Center located at the base of the towers.

 

Kuala Lumpur Tower

The KL Tower was constructed before the Twin Towers and usually should be visited at 6pm as to catch the various views of the twin towers as the sun gradually sets. Ask us here at Sunshine for tickets with special prices!

 

 

Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve

Located at the base of the KL Tower, it is a forest reserve located at the heart of the city center and consists of a canopy walk (a bridge that hangs in between two trees) and a nature walk.

 

 

Jalan Alor

A street that filled with (literally!) hundreds of local hawker stalls, you’ll be spoilt for choice on what to get for dinner, supper and perhaps a late night supper. Walk a little bit more from Jalan Alor and you will hit the pubs, clubs and fancy restaurants.
