5 Awesome Things to do in Kuala Lumpur
When visiting Kuala Lumpur, you will find many fun things to explore. From visiting the KL Twin Towers, KL City Gallery, Perdana Botanical Gardens to KL Butterfly Park. If you would like to see as much as possible, we suggest you get KL Pass. KL Pass is the ultimate pass to the city of Kuala Lumpur and all of its attractions. But that’s not all you can experience in the city of Kuala Lumpur. Below you will find 5 Awesome Things to do in Kuala Lumpur that are slightly off the beaten track.
#1 Join KL Famous Food Tour and Wander Through Food Markets
Kuala Lumpur is famous for its delicious food and the easiest way to discover the authentic cuisine is to join a Food Tour. Have you heard of nasi lemak? Are you interested in different cuisines that are a part of KL? Would you like to try out the fantastic local eateries? Then joining a food tour is the best option. You will not only eat your way through KL, but you will also learn about the food culture, find out where locals eat, what kind of food do they cook for holidays and much much more.
While we were in KL we went on a Food Tour with the company called Food Tour Malaysia and spend a lovely afternoon exploring the food markets around KL.
#2 Jump on Sightseeing Bus and Explore the City
If this is your first time in KL, we suggest you book your ticket with Sightseeing Bus. It is the easiest way to see the city for the first time and you will get a perspective of where certain places and attractions are. So, our suggestion is to get yourself a KL Pass, where you will get the Hop-on Hop-off Bus tickets included in the price. You can explore the city and visit multiple attractions for one fixed price.

#3 Visit the MUD Musical and Discover the History of KL
Discover the history of Kuala Lumpur through the great story line of a lovely musical called MUD. If you enjoy musicals and are looking for a pleasant evening in KL, then book yourself tickets to this playful show. MUD is a lovely musical performance with a great presentation of the cities early days till now. You will enjoy a lot of singing, dancing, fantastic costumes and great scenery. And at the end of the show, you will also be more knowledgeable about the history of this interesting city.
#4 Sip a Cocktail and Enjoy the View from KL Sky Bars
Definitely, a must do while you are in KL is to visit at least one of many sky bars. KL is famous for its sky bars with incredible views of the city and of course the Petronas Twin Towers. We visited the three most popular sky bars while we were there. The sophisticated Marini’s on 57, the casual Sky Bar at Trader’s Hotel and the most interesting of all the Heli Lounge Bar, set up on a fully operational helipad. Each of them is an experience of its own, so why not try all of them 🙂

#5 Plan a Trip to the Batu Caves Outside of the City
When you are in KL, then try to put into your itinerary a trip to the Batu Caves just a few minutes out of the city. It is an interesting sight to see. We went on a guided tour with Asian Trails and had a lovely day full of interesting information.
