This is going to be a short post, like my stay in Kuala Lumpur. Last summer I spent a month backpacking through Southeast Asia. Kuala Lumpur was just a stopover on the way to Vietnam. We didn’t even have 24 hours there. A short sweet stay!
We stayed in the Oasis Guest House which is in Chinatown. Chinatown is pretty cool, during the day there are markets. Let me tell you, these markets were so so good. I was actually so annoyed that this was our first stop, I didn’t want to fill up my bag so early on in the trip! They had ‘genuine fakes’ which is just like top quality fakes, handbags, shoes, sunglasses. You name it, they had it! We did pick up some sunglasses, watches and selfie sticks! There were lots of restaurants and cafes around this area too.
Our Guest house was also a walk away from the famous Petronas Twin Towers! In the evening we got a taxi over and took our selfies. There are bars and restaurants around this area too so we had dinner with a pretty cool view. The next day we strolled to the towers and saw Kuala Lumpur tower on the way! There is lots of cool street art to check out around Kuala Lumpur.
If you have an extra day you should check out the nearby Batu Caves. In the caves are Hindu temples and shrines. There is a massive gold statue of a Hindu god at the entrance to the caves. There are 272 steps to climb but once you do, you have a view of the whole city. Monkeys are known to frolic about these caves too. A must see in Kuala Lumpur.
If you are stuck for time and need to stay somewhere close to the airport, check out EV World Hotel Enstek. I stayed here on a separate stopover in Kuala Lumpur when I didn’t have the time to check out the city. It’s about 10 minutes from the airport and beside a few fast food chains for convenience.
Hope this little post can help you if you’re planning to stop in Kuala Lumpur. Have you been? Did you check out Chinatown, I’d love to know. Feel free to leave a comment and go ahead and check out other travel posts from me. Thanks for reading.
