Kuala Lumpur is a city that I never seem to have enough time in. I’m always passing through and cramming in as much as I can in one day. For me, it’s always a case of planning my day around my meals and you can guarantee I spend a lot of time eating here.
With so many super cuisines like Indian, Chinese and Malay combining, it’s little wonder I had time to see the city in between gorging. But see the city I did and it’s a very photogenic place. Here is my one-day in photos.
If you don’t stop for street food you are officially insane. Street food is the thing I love most about South East Asia and Malaysia is no exception. The roadside steaming soups of Chinatown or the fried goodies of Little India – you couldn’t tear me away from it all.
Ok so you’ve got to fit in some sightseeing and Menara KL, the Observation Tower, provided a not too shabby view over the city. After a mild case of claustrophobia in the lift on the way up, I calmed myself down with an audio tour about KL’s skyline.
I’ll need to reserve at least a week for food exploration when I’m next in the city. With the most mouth watering variety of super delicious, cheap food on offer, I could easily spend days hunting down the foodie markets and hot spots to satisfy my Malay munchies.
Vertigo sufferers beware; a trip up the Petronas Twin Towers just has to be done. Yes my knees wobbled and yes, I had a sweaty brow but hey, it was worth it.
The towers are pretty impressive at night too. Stick around after sunset to see the towers light up and then head to a bar and toast a day well spent.
