Malaysia was one of the best trips of my life. I have been there several times and it always feels amazing to come back there. It’s lovely country. There are a lot of things to see but I chose the most interesting places for me .
The iconic twin towers are the headquarters of the Petronas oil company, the largest in Malaysia. They were the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004 and have replaced the World Trade Center as the tallest twin towers in the world.
I love coming here during the day time to view the towers, but definitely prefer it at night time! Love how the tower is lit up. There is also a music show/water light show in the park and it is just so nice and relaxing to sit and watch! There are some good view points in front of the tower and in the back of the tower, so plenty of opportunity to take good pictures!
Batu caves , one of the most well recognized tourist attractions in the country. Welcomed by the giant golden statue of Lord Murugan, a Hindu god. It’s over 200 steps to the temple at the top of the cave. There are monkeys everywhere around you!! And some of them are really aggressive! They attack people sometimes because the monkeys are used to tourists and would come right up to people looking for food.
Dinner at Jalan Alor . Forget about fancy restaurants. The most exciting food in Malaysia can be found on the streets. You won’t find fancy decor, mood lighting or crisp tablecloths. It’s purely about the food. Food cooked in a furious fashion, served on plastic plates, and eaten whilst standing, or – if you’re lucky – perched on a plastic stool that teeters precariously on the side of the road. There are a lot of interesting items on offer including frogs on sticks and deep fried chicken gizzards, on top of the famous durian fruits which apparently ‘taste like heaven, smell like hell’. Locals and tourists drinking a beer by the side of the road or sharing a bowl of chickens feet together. With lanterns on and music playing, it had a homely but hectic vibe, leading onto the nearby streets full of more traditional bars shouting about their various happy hour deals. It’s clearly the place to be to go ‘out-out’ in KL.
♥ THEAN HOU TEMPLE
A beautiful Chinese temple.
It’s the biggest temple in the city KL . There are really beautiful architecture details including dragons and phoenixes. There is a lovely wee garden with all the Chinese horoscope animal. The temple is really a quiet and a sacred place . So if you want to chill out or do some meditation come here!
♥CHIN SWEE TEMPLE
Buddhist temple . This is a large area with many things to see. There is the sitting Buddha who is very large. It has the different levels of hell are all portrayed as well. There is gorgeous view of the mountains and KL.
♥ I’m preparing more articles about food, shopping, language, F1 and other interesting stuffs about this amazing country. Stay tuned!
