Bukit Bitang, Batu Caves, Jalang petaling, menara tower...there´s some much to see in KL. If you have time, go to Melaca, it´s just 2 hours bus. If you are going for sometime in Malasya, go to Langkawi Islands!

Chinatown is cool for the night markets and getting a bite to eat. KL (Menara Tower) is a better choice than the Petronas for a good view. Downside is its 38RM entrance fee. Awesome views though! Sunway Lagoon is a good waterpark to cool off and have some fun!

Depends on what you like. We were in KL in Jan 09 and we did a lot of shopping, the malls are amazing. The best mall is 1 Utama. For things to do and see, the Petrona Towers but get there really early like 6:30 and 7am to queue for tickets b/c there are limited tickets each day. The KL Tower is worth going up if it is a clear day b/c you have graet views of the city. I would strongly suggest going to the Batu Caves and to Chinatown. The best thing about KL is the food, it is really delicious and there is so much to try so make sure you bring your appetite!

depence for what you are looking for. Touristic places are pasar sini, central market, china town with petaling street. For shopping there are so many malls like KLCC in the twin towers and mid valley those are the biggest. If you want to fin a nice place to eat, just go to one of the many mamak restarants and try nasi lemak, teh tarik, nasi kandar or one of the many rotis

For tourists, Central Market or Pasar Seni is one of the "Must Go" destination if you love art and crafts and also if you are looking for souvenir to bring home. For shopping, Suria KLCC, Mid Valley, Berjaya Times Squere (among the biggest shopping mall in the world) and Bukit Bintang also worth the visit. Looking for something natural.. uhm... Aquaria KLCC is a big aquarium with 20 aquatic exhibition facilities. To taste a bit of local, just head your journey to Petaling Street and Tunku Abdul Rahman Street. Sometimes they have Weekly Market. But be careful with foods sold there! Your stomach may not as rugged as locals!

Batu Caves The Batu Caves is located north of Kuala Lumpur city and is actually part of Selangor state. The large limestone hill is shaped like one big mound, where the middle part holds the main cavern with 272 steps leading up to its entrance. Predominantly a religious site of worship for Hindus, the main cave has a few altars and statues. Walking past them will lead you to an opening in the roof of the hill, where sunlight filters in through into the cave. Along the way up the steps, there is another cave, which is called the 'Dark Cave'. This is a cave with restricted access as it holds a diverse range of fauna, such as spiders, bats and snakes. However, there are tours available to enter and explore the 2-km Dark Cave. While exploring Batu Caves, do watch out for naughty monkeys that will brazenly nick your bags for food when you look away. National Museum The National Museum or Muzium Negara is located just outside the Kuala Lumpur Lake Gardens, and is Malaysia's main museum. The building itself is a mix of traditional Malay and modern architecture, built in 1963. Outside, a restored old railway train greets visitors along with other old transportation vehicles such as the very first Proton Saga car, bullock carts and a vintage automobile. The museum consists of two wings that house a variety of exhibits, dioramas and galleries which include historical relics and artifacts, cultural items, arts and handicrafts, flora and fauna, weapons and currencies. From time to time, there are special theme exhibitions to educate and enthrall visitors. National Library The National Library in Jalan Tun Razak is a repository for locally-written and international books of an academic nature. The library is most often used by avid readers, students and researchers as a resource centre. The library, which has several floors, divides its collection of more than 6,500 books into Malaysiana, Rare Collection, Manuscripts, Serials, General, Media Resources, United Nations and National Collections. Other facilities include a photographic studio and web browsing stations. National Art Gallery The National Art Gallery located along Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin was established in the former Majestic hotel, which itself is a historical building built in 1932. It houses a number of galleries that range from permanent exhibits to temporary ones. The permanent collection amounts to over 2,500 art pieces, featuring the work of local and international artists. From time to time, educational programmes, workshops, competitions and seminars are organised. Royal Selangor The Royal Selangor Visitor Centre is located in Setapak where visitors can see how pewter is manufactured and turned into intricate handicrafts. Established more than a century ago, Selangor Pewter is world-renowned for its beautifully-crafted pewter items that have won several international awards. At the centre, you can also glimpse how fine jewelry is made in the factory besides pewter products. National Mosque The National Mosque is located near the Kuala Lumpur Lake Gardens. Opened in 1965, the mosque is elegantly designed with contemporary interpretations of traditional Islamic art and calligraphy. Its unique feature is the umbrella-like roof which is cast in a blue hue. Visitors are required to remove their shoes as well as dress appropriately before entering. Thean Hou Temple The Thean Hou Temple is one of the oldest temples in Southeast Asia, sitting on top of a hill next to the Taman Seputeh. It is also an ornately decorated temple which has spectacular designs across its roofs, complete with murals on its walls. The temple is also popular as a wedding venue, especially for the Chinese who frequent the place in the thousands during certain festivals. Jalan Ampang Take a walk along Jalan Ampang and you'll be taking a walk back in time, all the way to the 1900-s. The old mansions belonging to the tin tycoons at the turn of the century, these old ancestral homes line the streets in their silent splendour bearing witness to the passage of time and the growth of the Malaysian nation. Just so, the architecture of the buildings from Islamic architecture to Art-Deco, reflects the diversity and harmony in differences, just as Malaysia reflects the diversity and harmony of its people. Sadly enough, some of these buildings have been demolished to make way for modern developments, while some others have been refurbished and now take on new roles; check out the Malaysian Tourist Information Complex, MATIC, at 109 Jalan Ampang (open daily: 9 a.m. - 9 p.m.) and Le Coq d'Or, which has a romantic tale behind its construction. It seems that it was built by a rejected suitor to impress the father of his lady love. Her father, a tin tycoon, had disallowed the couple to marry as the suitor was poor. So, after having made his fortune in the tin business, he built the splendid house. Le Coq d'Or is now a restaurant.
