6 Best Places to Visit in Kuala Lumpur


Exploring what Kuala Lumpur has to offer cannot be done in a day simply because there are so many interesting places you can go to.

Not only that but there are also a lot of things that you can do here as well. Whether you want to party with a girl escorts or chowing down on some street eats; there is no shortage of things to do here.

So today, I am going to be sharing with you my experience of the best places that you can visit in Kuala Lumpur. Creating this list is quite hard since there are so many places that are definitely worth your time.

But for brevity, I am going to narrow the list down to 6. Anyway, let’s get on with it, shall we?

Muzium Negara

Established way back in 1898, the Muzium Negara is also known by locals as the National Museum.

This houses a lot of Malaysia’s historical artifacts and people that want to know more about the country should definitely visit this place.

One of the main attractions in the museum is the Istana Satu, which is part of the palace of the sultans of Malaysia before.

Sultan Abdul Samad Building

This particular structure was built mainly as a stronghold for the British forces but has now been repurposed as a government building.

It was constructed in 1897 and was used as a base of operations for the British government. It is now being used as the office of the Supreme Court and the High Courts of Malaysia.

But, I didn’t recommend this place solely for its historical importance. I actually advise you to go here since the architecture of the place is just a sight to behold.

National Mosque

The primary religion that is being practiced in Malaysia is Islam which is why you can find many different mosques scattered throughout the country.

Anyway, the National Mosque can be found in Kuala Lumpur and it is one of the most massive mosques in the city. It is so big, in fact, that it can house 15,000 Islam worshippers at a time.

The mosque was built way back in 1965 but has received major renovations in 1987, Even if you do not practice Islam, the place is filled with Islamic calligraphy and arts that tourists can truly marvel at.

Istana Budaya

Considered as the National Theater of Malaysia, Istana Budaya is constructed really well using a combination of marble and wood.

The local arts scene holds annual concerts, events, and other live performances in the said venue, and the occasional invite international guests as well.

Zoo Negara

The Perdana Botanical Gardens are home to the KL Bird Park and Butterfly Garden. But, if you want to see more mammals, then you should definitely go to Zoo Negara. Opened to the public in 1963, Zoo Negara allows you to glimpse some of the world’smammals, amphibians, reptiles, and so much more.

Genting Highlands

Situated 2,000 meters above sea level, the Genting Highlands has plenty to offer. From its rich rainforests to the infamous cable cars, this place is great for adrenaline junkies and for people that just want to embrace nature.
