The best sights in Kuala Lumpur

 Well hello to you my reader chums! I fell in love with Malaysia; I enjoyed the diverse vibe, the sights, the food and every experience I encountered. The capital city of Kuala Lumpur surprised me with a modern and sleek appeal, boasting a combination of sights, experiences and food markets. 

If you're new to Kuala Lumpur, here is my guide to the best sights in Malaysia's capital city.

The best sights in Kuala Lumpur

Petaling Street

For the ultimate bustling market experience, this street is for you. This is a long street packed with various market stalls, from food to souvenirs and homemade items. You can spend a while here mooching, browsing and sampling the best foods. Don't forget to haggle for any item you like.


From Petaling Street, make your way through to Chinatown and explore the wonders of the Chinese culture, including many delicious restaurants, temples and other sights to admire. One of the temples I visited was the Guan Di Temple, centred in the middle of the town.

KL Forest Eco Park

For a taste of nature in the bustling and loud city, the Eco Park is a breath of fresh air. Surrounded by trees and greenery, the park is full of canopy bridges to roam around and enjoy gorgeous views of the city as well. 

Bukit Bintang

Known as a shopping and entertainment district of the city, Buki Bintang is worth a mooch around to discover quirky shops, bold street art, malls and fashion boutiques. If you want any shopping done, this is the district for it.

Jalan Alor Night Market

Southeast Asia is famous for their electric and colourful night food market and Kuala Lumpur is no different. One of their most famous food markets is Jalan Alor Night Market, a street full of unique food stalls and drink options. Whether you're looking for a classic Malaysian dish, Thai food or some refreshing coconut ice cream, this market has it all. 

Central market

A quieter, indoor market to visit is the Central Market, which has a more modern and characteristic feel to it. This market features local businesses selling their handmade goods, souvenir shops, clothing stores and much more to browse.

Petronas Twin Towers

As the most iconic sight of Kuala Lumpur, the Twin Towers are a must-visit. Whether you go see the towers from the outside and admire them from every angle to get the dreamy photo for the gram. You can also climb up the Twin Towers and see the city turn from day to night. I loved seeing the towers at night glowing under the night sky.

For another perspective of the city from a high point, the KL Tower is a lovely opportunity to see all of Kuala Lumpur. 

Batu Caves

I have to admit this was probably one of my favourite activities I did in the city and worth the visit for something more unique and monumental. The Batu Caves are cave temples, located up gorgeous and colourful steps. The day I visited, it was an annual religious festival and an amazing thing to witness and see how many locals near and far travel to celebrate a Hindu festival.

I hope you enjoyed this post. What other sights would you have?
