Kuala Lumpur Unleashed

Are you in Kuala Lumpur and worried that you only have a day before your flight? Here is your 24-hour itinerary for an exhilarating experience in the capital city of Malaysia.

Climb the Batu Caves

If you spent the night at a luxury hotel in Kuala Lumpur, an early start would permit you to visit the Batu Caves – the heat of the afternoon sun would leave you feeling too exhausted to continue exploring the city. The caves encapsulate a stretch of rainbow-coloured stairs winding upwards to a limestone hill. If you are lucky, you might even reach the top in time to savour the brilliant view of the skyline at sunrise.

Dig into Some Malaysian Street-Food 

It would be a one-of-a-kind experience to opt for an early lunch at one of the stalls by the side of the streets. A dish that you could try is the roast chicken rice. With the fried chicken bringing about a hint of sweetness to the flavoured rice, this will serve as the most scrumptious meal that will also keep you going for the rest of the day. For dessert, you could be on the lookout for a mouth-watering fruit kebab dipped in melted sugar or some delicious kue lapis – a layered pudding with a buttery texture that melts in your mouth.

Traipse along the Bridges at the Eco Forest

Nestled away from the bustle of the city lies the Eco Forest. This green wonderland is enclosed by the shade of rustling trees and harmonious lakes. It contains a myriad of hanging bridges that create a pathway through the dense forest.

Unwind at a Bar

All that walking might make you yearn for a drink by evening. If so, the Botanist Lounge & Bar at PARKROYAL COLLECTION in Kuala Lumpur is just for you. It contains an assortment of contemporary classics in addition to cocktails and mocktails. You could even grab a bite to eat.

Shop at Petaling Street

At Petaling Street, you will find an array of stores that transition into a vibrant and brightly lit market at night. This street presents you with a wide choice of items at affordable prices ranging from souvenirs and accessories to clothes and shoes.

Dine at a luxurious restaurant

End the day in luxury, just as you started it by driving to a place like Tamarind Springs Kuala Lumpur, in the middle of a rainforest. Revel in the tranquillity of your surroundings while savouring some signature dishes.
