The Amazing City with So Much on Offer.
Kuala Lumpur is one of those cities that I keep going back to because it has something exciting to offer every time.
Starting my journey from Bali I took a direct 3-hour flight with AirAsia to Kuala Lumpur and was ready to enjoy this trip the moment I landed.
Quite apart from the many well-known places of interest around and just out of KL I had decided to make the 2-hour drive to visit some of the historic landmarks in the city of Malacca. The city was listed a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008 because of its rich cultural and historic sites.
Enjoying Malacca was a comfortable one-day trip for me as this is a small city where most of the attractions here are close together. While there I visited St Paul’s Church, the old Stadhuys (Town Hall) and Christ Church all within easy reach of the Malacca River. Before leaving the city I owed myself a meal of Nyonya, this renowned local cuisine is served in many restaurants and should not be missed while in Malacca.
Back in Kuala Lumpur, I highly recommend to stay at the Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur as this is one of the best hotels in the city where it sits opposite the striking old Moorish style railway station. The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur features 300 beautifully appointed deluxe guest rooms and luxurious suites. The building was originally built in 1930s and considered as one of the great colonial landmarks in the city. Its location is known as the historical mile of Kuala Lumpur and within its vicinity, there are many major attractions including the National Museum, National Mosque, Islamic Arts Museum, Lake Gardens and Bird and Butterfly Parks.
For those planning a visit towards the end of year there is an opportunity to take advantage of the 1Malaysia Year-End Sale that will be held on 14th November 2015 to 3rd January 2016. Two of the well-known shopping centres that have drawn most of the visitors in the past are The Suria KLCC and the Pavilion. Situated at the base of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers, Suria KLCC is one of Malaysia’s premier centres offering major brands as well as more affordable merchandise. On the other hand, Pavilion is a modern shopping centre in the Bukit Bintang area with hundreds of retail shops representing some of the world’s finest brand names along with well-known local brands, entertainment and a selection of quality eateries.
