Describe the best holiday trip you made

- by stargazer, sarawak.

During the last Chinese New Year holidays, my family and I made a trip to Kuala Lumpur. A few months before we went on the trip, my parents booked the air tickets. They also booked a room at the Swiss Hotel in Kuala Lumpur.

In the morning that we were supposed to fly to the capital city, my father called a taxi to take us to the Miri International Airport. My brother and I were very excited as this was our first flight. My father told us that the flight would take about 2 hours. After checking in at the counter and boarding the aeroplane, the aeroplane started to take off. I was glad to have a window seat. My brother sat next to me. We loved looking out through the window to enjoy a bird's eye view of the panorama.

After 2 hours, it was already 12 noon and we arrived at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport. We collected our luggage in the luggage claim area and ordered a taxi again to take us to the Swiss Hotel. After unpacking our stuff at the hotel, we decided to have our lunch at a nearby restaurant. After the meal, we visited our first tourist attraction - the KLCC Aquaria. We saw various types of fish there. While my father was busy taking snapshots of the colourful and exotic sea creatures, my brother and I were busy looking at them. The oceanarium consists of different sections and there are different kinds of fishes in each section. After viewing the fishes, we went to the souvenir shop to buy some souvenirs. Then we went back to the hotel to rest.

The next day, we went to the Zoo Negara. After buying the tickets, we entered the zoo. We saw lots of animals such as the elephants, lions, tigers, Malayan tapirs and so on. We also took some photographs with the tame animals. We enjoyed watching the crocodile feeding show very much. After spending about an hour at the zoo, we felt tired. So, we went to the small canteen located at the zoo for refreshment. After that, we bought some postcards in a souvenir shop beside the canteen.

After visiting the Zoo Negara, we proceeded to our next destination - the Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park. There are more than 5000 colourful live butterflies in the park, which is also the largest butterfly garden in the world. We saw many of the attractive butterflies fluttering from flower to flower all over the place. We also had an opportunity to watch the magnificent Rajah Brooke's Birdwing, the national butterfly of Malaysia. There is a museum in the park, with a large collection of butterflies and insects from all over the world. Apart from butterfly specimens, we also saw specimens of beetles, scorpions and spiders in the museum.

On the third day, we went to the Batu Caves, which is a limestone hill with a series of caves and cave temples. The temples are sacred places for Hindus in Malaysia. A flight of 272 steps of staircase leads to the temples. My brother and I tried to walk up the whole flight of staircase but we found it too tiring. We only managed to walk halfway up. We saw quite a lot of wild monkeys on the staircase and the handrails. At noon, we decided to go to Genting Highlands. We went there by bus. The weather was very cool at the popular hill resort. The air was also very refreshing. While my parents were busy trying their luck on the casino floor, my brother and I were having a great time in the amusement park.

On the last day, we packed our luggage in the morning. Then, we checked out of the hotel. My father hired a taxi driver to take us around the city. We went on a shopping spree. We also visited a chocolate factory - Beryl's Chocolate Wonderland and bought some chocolate at a discounted price. In the evening, the taxi driver took us to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, where we caught a night flight home.

Although it was only a four-day trip, we had had an enjoyable time. I had also gained a lot of knowledge from the trip, which was an eye-opener for me. It was indeed the best holiday trip that I made.

A Trip to Langkawi

My father planned a surprise family holiday to Langkawi last January. We were so excited. We had never been there.

We had a nice smooth drive from Kuala Lumpur to Kuala Kedah before boarding the ferry to Langkawi. We checked in at our hotel. We spent the next three days driving around Langkawi, visiting the beaches and swimming in the sea.

We visited Kuah, the main town, on the fourth day. Sister liked shopping fort souvenirs at the duty-free shops. We also enjoyed visiting the many historical sited in Langkawi.

Langkawi had something for everyone. It was a perfect holiday.

A Family Trip

Last summer, I visited my native village at Kota Bharu, Kelantan which is quite a distance from the city. It is a five-hour journey by train.

My grandmother prepared delicious and mouth-watering dishes for me, and I relished every bite of the food. I spent most of the time, visiting fields with my grandfather and learning from him about crops and the seasons they are produced in.

I also played a lot with my village friends. It was routine every night to listen to a story from my grandmother and sink to sleep.

I had a wonderful time spending some priceless moments with my grandparents.

Last weekend, my family and I went for a picnic. Taman Tasik Perdana, Putrajaya was our picnic spot. It was a beautiful place for enjoying a picnic.

I went there with my parents, sister, brother, and other members of our family. We were also accompanied by some of our neighbours.

We started our journey early in the morning by car. It took one and half an hour to reach there.  It was a distance of 55.5 km from our home to our picnic spot.

We spent the time joyfully. It was an amazing place to explore. We also enjoyed the glorious sunset. Then we returned home with a very happy mind.

A Kuala Lumpur City Break with Kids

Most people spend very little time in the Malay capital, flying in and out at the start of a longer holiday in Malaysia (perhaps on the island of Langkawi , in Teman Negara National Park or in Penang ) or during a stopover to other parts of Asia or to Australia or New Zealand. Like them, we only spent a very short time in Kuala Lumpur, but what we packed into it made us keen to go back and make more of what is definitely worthy of a proper city break in its own right.

It had to start at the Petronas Twin Towers – the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004 and still the tallest twin towers anywhere. Obviously, you come here for the views, but the experience starts in the lobby, where sci-fi-like virtual holographic guides give you a brief safety proceeding. You then proceed to the 41st-storey Skybridge, where interactive terminals help you identify the city’s landmarks, before heading up to the 86th-floor observatory for even more far-reaching views over this fascinating city. Right beside the Towers is Kuala Lumpur City Centre Park – after gazing down into it, you can head there for twice-daily shows at its dancing water fountains on Lake Symphony, its large playground and its kids’ swimming pool.

‘Book a babysitter so you can make the most of KL’s great nightlife. We loved going in search of some of Kuala Lumpur’s ‘hidden bars’ – speakeasies taking their cue from the American prohibition era.’

As a sharp contract to the modern skyscrapers, we then went for a gander at British colonial-era landmarks Sultan Abdul Samad Building and Kuala Lumpur Railway Station, and afterwards browsed the city’s restored Art Deco Central Market with its stalls selling traditional Malaysian, Chinese and Indian crafts and other items. We had lunch here in the market building too, at the Precious Old China Cafe with its characterful decor of Malaysian antiques and vintage colonial furniture, serving delicious Straits Chinese cuisine (essentially, Chinese ingredients cooked with Malay herbs and spices).

Hotel Istana pool

Hotel Istana pool

In terms of family-friendly places to stay in Kuala Lumpur, we rated both the Hotel Istana and the Sama Sama Hotel KLIA (KL International Airport). The former has a fantastic city-centre location, family rooms, some with eye-boggling views of the Petronas Towers, an outdoor pool, spa and great food including copious breakfast buffets of both Western and Asian dishes. The latter is, as the name suggests, right by the airport (you can look up at the control tower from its outdoor pool). Guests here can take advantage of the hotel's fast-track airport service, including lounge access, costing around £20pp. You can also rent rooms for just a few hours – useful for those on a stopover or needing to fresh up before or after a flight before heading elsewhere in Malaysia. 

Both hotels also offer babysitting so you can make the most of KL’s great nightlife. We loved going in search of some of Kuala Lumpur’s ‘hidden bars’ – speakeasies taking their cue from the American prohibition era. The best was PS150, squirrelled away behind the facade of an old toy shop and offering the most incredible cocktails, including Rumble in the Jungle (coconut and pandan rum, tuak, Campari, tropical juices, Elemakule bitters, gula melaka and curry leaf) and Salty Nihonsan (shōchū, preserved orange peel, lime, lemonade and orange bitters). If those aren’t enough to tempt you out of your hotel room, I don’t know what is…

Top Things to Do in Kuala Lumpur with Kids

As well as the above sights, we recommend: • Heading for the Perdana Botanical Gardens, home to the National Planetarium, a deer park, a butterfly park and the world’s biggest free-flight walk-through aviary. • Venturing to KL Forest Eco Park Park, one of the oldest permanent forest reserves in Malaysia, with nature trails, a 200m-high canopy walk, a playground and even a campsite.  • Delving into Petrosains, The Discovery Centre, with its interactive exhibits, science shows, maker studios and school-holiday workshops. It’s in the vast Suria KLCC shopping mall. • Meeting the underwater creatures at Aquaria KLCC, one of the largest aquariums in Southeast Asia, with more than 150 species of marine life including tiger sharks and lethal sea snakes. • Taking a day-trip to the iconic Batu Caves with their Hindu temple and shrine. • Journeying 15 minutes out of the city to splash and ride at the Sunway Lagoon theme park.

Dear Susan,

Hope you and your family are all well. I am ecstatic to know that your are visiting Kuala Lumpur along with your family next month.

Firstly, I would tell you that Kuala Lumpur is a beautiful city for family vacation. Since i stayed there for two weeks during my vacations, i will suggest you some amazing places to visit during your stay. Make sure you visit the Petronas Tower, Menara KL Tower, Batu Cave and Sunway Lagoon Theme Park. Moreover, there are many shopping mall where you can find both local and international brands stores.

As I know you are a foodie person and you love to try different food. There a numerous food stalls available in the city. I will suggest you to try their most famous dish named as "Nasi Lemak". It was my favourite dish.

Lastly, for transportation, cab is the best option to avail in the city, bus and train services are expensive as well as you have to step out of city to get one. Other than that, do not forget to rid on "HOP ON - HOP OFF" Bus. It is a city tour bus specially for the tourist. You can explore the city bu riding on the bus.

Hope this will help you, have a great trip.

With Love, Nakita

My Kuala Lumpur Travel Diary

Home » Asia

While I’ve made three visits to both Singapore and Bangkok, I somehow hadn’t been to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia until just recently. Friends of Ben and I live there and we went for a 4-day visit. I love seeing a new city with friends that live there (Dom is English and Massy is Malay – you might remember we went to their wedding in Singapore a couple of years ago) so I can see it as a local and not as a tourist.

My Travel Diary from Kuala Lumpur (KL)

Sometimes, that means I miss the “tourist” things to do but it also means I see what it would really be like to live there. In any case, this article is more of a travel diary than my usual “guides” to places. But I will quickly lay out the top things to do in KL here so you know! We got around to some of them. At the end of the post, I’ll also share all the basics you need to know about Kuala Lumpur before you visit.

Top things to do in Kuala Lumpur

  • Check out the famous Petronas Towers (tallest twin towers in the world) and walk across the sky bridge which connects them and shop below at the KLCC mall and park.
  • Go to the top of the KL Tower (the 7th tallest in the world)
  • Visit Batu Caves
  • Visit Sri Mahamariamman Temple
  • Learn about the culture at the National Museum
  • Shop at Central Market
  • Visit the Blue Mosque (and several other beautiful mosques)
  • Wander through China Town
  • Visit the Thean Hou Temple (a stunning Buddhist temple)
  • Zoos, aquariums, eco-parks, theme parks, botanical gardens, butterfly and bird parks, and more museums

Our visit to KL

Dom and Massy live in a condo in Mont Kiara, just outside the city center near Little Korea and Solaris, where we went for some yummy Korean BBQ! We stayed with them and easily could take Grab cabs anywhere – but often didn’t have to since Dom works for Mercedes and has a company car. We were pretty spoiled getting driven around by him most of the time! You might have read as well that Uber is stopped in SE Asia and the Grab app is now the #1 app to use.

We did do many of the tourist items above but skipped just the caves, temples, and mosques. Dom and Massy are both Muslim and to go to a mosque isn’t a tourist activity for them. I have seen probably thousands of temples and didn’t feel the need to make special trips to see more – and the caves are a Hindu site (Ben and I have explored so many caves on our travels). It would be going just to “check it off the list” which I’m not interested in doing.

Travel Diary from Kuala Lumpur

The best view of the Petronas Towers is probably from the KLCC park below during the day. At night, you can go to Marini’s on 57 and see them literally right behind your table while you have drinks. They aren’t lit up all night and turn off at I think midnight.

Travel Diary from Kuala Lumpur

If you drive to KL Tower , keep in mind there is hardly any parking! It’s better to take a taxi and get dropped off. You can pay 50 Ringgit to go to the observation deck, which is not quite at the top. We paid 100 Ringgit (around $25) for sky level observation (as high as you can go – and where you see those infamous glass boxes that go out over the city). Sadly, it was raining, so we could only go to the observation deck. They did end up giving us our money back for the sky level since it was closed when we tried to go up.

Travel Diary from Kuala Lumpur

We spent some time in China Town and I’ll admit, we bought fake Ray-Bans lol. Ben has lost 3 real pairs, so it was about time he got a fake pair. We also got some to give to our security guards at our complex in Goa. There are about $5 and are actually polarized. They have fake Nikes, luxury bags, jerseys, watches, you name it. Some look really real while others are obviously fake. I almost bought a Puma fanny pack but then snapped out of the daze because WTF was I even thinking?

Travel Diary from Kuala Lumpur

From China Town, you can walk on to Central Market . You can eat street food along the way like cold stone ice cream, fresh coconuts, and meat on a stick.

Go-karting in Kuala Lumpur at Sepang

The BEST thing we did in Kuala Lumpur was go-karting. Ben and I try to go-kart everywhere we travel and had actually even go-karted in Malaysia before, in Langkawi . We went to the famous Sepang track to go-kart next to the F1 track. These cars hit 100 km/hour (62 mph) on the straight-aways and it’s a 1 km track. It was exhilarating! On the first straight away, going that fast, I actually yelled like I was on a rollercoaster. Dom races motorcycles and even he said it’s the fastest go-karting he’s ever done.

Travel Diary from Kuala Lumpur

Beyond that, in Goa, we drive slow on curving village roads so whenever Ben and I are on a highway in another country going fast we are like “wow we are flying” when in reality it’s not fast. When I go back to the USA, and my dad is going 70mph on the highway, I feel like it’s way faster than I’ve ever been which my speeding tickets would beg to argue with. So, being on a go-kart going 62 mph was seriously fun. If you go to KL, you have to do this! It’s near the airport, not the city center. It was expensive – and you HAVE to do the series 3.

Travel Diary from Kuala Lumpur

Food & Shopping in KL

We went to the city center for the tourist things and went to some different neighborhoods there like Bangsar, a kind of affluent neighborhood that many expats live in. While in Bangsar, we had the yummiest breakfast at Antipodean which is Dom’s favorite place for an English fry-up. In this area, you’ll also find shops like Lulu Lemon and various restaurants like Panchos (Mexican), Mikey’s NYC pizza, and tapas bars.

Travel Diary from Kuala Lumpur

Dom and Massy had come to Goa over Christmas and were not impressed by our “best steak in Goa” places. So, they took us for their “best steak in KL” places. THESE were some seriously good steaks. We had dinner one night at Pampas in an area called Old Malaya. Another night we had steak at The Whiskey Bar and Steakhouse. The steak and ribs were really good. Prices in KL are a little all over the place. For example, if you eat really local it’s super cheap (backpacker budget style). If you go to a nice sit-down steak place it’s more like $100 for two people to eat and drink booze. But you could spend even more if you went to a Michelin place or at a roof-top bar. It’s by far cheaper than Singapore, though!

Travel Diary from Kuala Lumpur

The road that The Whiskey Bar is on is called Changkat Bukit Bintang. It’s a busy road similar (but not as wild as) Khao San Road. For nightlife, it seems like KL is a mix between Singapore (sometimes classy) and Thailand (sometimes a little trashy). There are seedy areas where you might not want to go out alone or might see some hookers – but it’s not like Bangkok with sex shows and all of that. It seems like a very chill nightlife vibe and this road is a good place to start out. Many hostels are near here and a lot of backpackers stay around here so you’re bound to meet other travelers and locals and expats, too.

Travel Diary from Kuala Lumpur

We did do a little bit of shopping. There is one mall called the Berjaya Times Square which has a theme park inside – we avoided this one. We did go to the Pavilion mall which is quite fancy, but only so we could go to the food court. We had some really nice Teppenyaki and then because I’m me, I got an Auntie Anne’s pretzel with cheese… twice.

Travel Diary from Kuala Lumpur

We also popped into the mall at the Petronas Towers to grab what Dom and Massy swear is the best Korean chicken wings ever made. It’s a chain fast food restaurant called 4 Fingers and once we started eating, we stopped talking, because they were so damn good. Please get these! They have them in Singapore, too. If you want more street food options, you’ll also want to hit up Alor Street which is known for great food (but used to be the red-light district).

Travel Diary from Kuala Lumpur

Near our friend’s place is the area called Little Korea and we went for the famous Korean BBQ where you cook it all on the little hot plate in front of you. So tasty!

Travel Diary from Kuala Lumpur

We also checked out a little tiny electronics shop, which I don’t have the details for (but message me if you want them), to buy a Chinese knock-off of a GoPro. Dom showed us his when they came to visit and my old GoPro 3 is so outdated. I don’t have the budget now to spend $500 on a new one, so this one for $130 that looks the same and comes with everything and has the same specs, I was down for. It’s called the [easyazon_link identifier=”B07527NP46″ locale=”US” tag=”Hipinhee-20″]SJ Cam[/easyazon_link] and it’s quite popular in Asia. I’ll hopefully be making more videos now!

Rafting in KL

If you drive just an hour and some away from the city, you are in the lush jungle. Dom booked us an epic whitewater rafting trip that he had done before. The night before the trip, I got food poisoning which I haven’t had in at least 4 years (and forgot how terrible it is!). I swear it was not the 4 whiskeys I had the night before – definitely food poisoning lol! At first, I thought it was just the booze, but then things got crazy and I was sure it was not the booze – seriously! Someone believe me, haha.

Travel Diary from Kuala Lumpur

They all went and I was so jealous. Ben called me from the trip and I cried because I had been looking forward to it so much. But, these things happen. The photos look stunning. Ben said it was the best thing he’s done in ages, so I think you should definitely check it out. You can check out some tours here .

Basics to know before visiting KL

Arriving in KL: The airport is about 45 minutes or more from the city center (also called KLCC). You can take a metro or a taxi. A Grab cab will only cost you around $10-15. We flew Malaysia Airlines, which I have flown before twice. They offered us only filtered cups of very warm water and when I asked for a sealed cup of water (those little ones with the aluminum lid you peel back) they said, “okay you can have one but now you cannot have one with your meal” . Umm, okay cheap-asses! Here’s a TIME article about why you shouldn’t drink tap water on planes (even the filtered “drinking” water).

Getting around: They have public transport: Monorail, MRT, and LRT. You can also use oBike to rent bicycles around town and drop them off wherever you are done. To get around, use  Grab App . Uber is no longer in SE Asia. Grab is much cheaper and more reliable than using a taxi. Taxis will sometimes rip you off and take you longer routes. From KLCC, you can walk most places.

How long to stay: You can easily see the tourist things in a weekend but if you want to get into the KL vibe, try to stay at least 5 days.

You can visit the tourism office for more information on local tours and to get maps of the city: Kuala Lumpur City Gallery,   27 Jalan Raja, Dataran Merdeka, KL, +60 3-2698 3333

Leaving KL: Make sure know you know which airport you leave from, as there are two.
