Get more things to do in Kuala Lumpur, and travel tips:
I'm Mark Wiens and thank you very much for watching this video about a few of the top things to do in Kuala Lumpur, a city that just happens to be one of my favorite cities to visit in Southeast Asia. It's the largest and probably the most important and influential city in Malaysia and truly has some amazing sites to offer. Along with modern skyrise towers like the Petronas Towers, there are still lots of traditional historic buildings as well. The awesome mixture of cultures, the mix of traditional and modern, and very importantly, the outstanding cuisine is what makes Kuala Lumpur such a great city to explore!
1. On this list of top things to do in Kuala Lumpur I first stop by the most famous landmark of the the city: the Petronas Towers. These twin giant sky scrapers are huge, and they literally reach towards the heavens and touch the clouds. On the bottom of the Petronas Towers is a pretty fancy shopping mall while the tops of the towers are filled with offices. On the 41st and 42nd floor, there is a sky bridge which connects the two towers together and which is open for visitors. Years ago, it used to be free entrance but unfortunately now they have started to charge a rather steep 80 Malaysian Ringgits per person.
2. After the visiting the Petronas towers, number two on the list is the historical district of old Kuala Lumpur. Visiting and walking around the area is one of the top things to do in Kuala Lumpur and you shouldn't miss the opportunity. From Merdeka Square to the old railroad station, you'll see some amazing architecture and buildings. Another must visit is the National Mosque, which is known as Masjid Negara. With a capacity of 15,000, this is the central and most visited mosque in the city.
3. The Menara KL Tower, along with the Petronas Towers, is one of the dominating features of Kuala Lumpur's skyline. At 421 meters in height, it's one of the world's tallest communications towers. I was lucky enough to be invited to the annual BASE jumping event which was held at the KL Tower so I had a pass to go to the top for the incredible view and to see the event ( The KL Tower also offer look out viewpoints and a number of restaurants where you can dine with an incredible view.
4. Number 4 is Little India which is better known as Brickfields. Kuala Lumpur is home to many Indian's many from the south of the country. Brickfields is a popular place to browse, shop for all sorts of Indian products and most importantly to eat at some seriously delicious Indian restaurants. If you're looking for good Indian food in Kuala Lumpur, check out this restaurant:
5. Chinatown, located on Petaling Street, is one of the biggest Kuala Lumpur attractions. It's mostly known for it street shopping and restaurants. You can find all sorts of fake brand names and nearly everything imaginable.
6. Thean Hou Temple is one of the most impressive Daoist temples in Kuala Lumpur. It's free to visit and offers insights into the Hainanese community in the city and there are also great views of the city.
7. Central Market, is a top tourist shopping attraction in Kuala Lumpur. Though many of the products are rather touristy, there are some good things waiting to be found.
8. Within central Kuala Lumpur are the KL Lake Gardens and Bird Park. It makes a great tropical escape to the bustling city life.
9. The Batu Caves, located just outside the central part of the city is one of the best things to do in Kuala Lumpur. The caves and shrines are one of the most sacred Hindu sites outside of India.
10. Chow Kit Market is the central fresh wet market in the city. Everyday thousands of shoppers get their Malaysian food ingredients at this interesting market.
11. Malaysian food is the ultimate attraction to visiting Kuala Lumpur. With a great mixture of local Malay, Chinese, and Indian, there's no shortage of incredible dining that will leave you satisfied and hungry for more! For myself, eating is one of the best things to do in Kuala Lumpur!
Hope you enjoyed this list and hope you have a wonderful visit!

Batu Caves is one of the major tourist attractions in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Everyday approximately 3000-5000 people visit Batu Caves which is a limestone hills with a series of caves and cave temples. These limestone hills are said to be 400 million years old and some of the cave entrances were used as shelter by the indigenous Temuan people (a tribe of Orang Asli).
Three ‘must see’ in Batu Caves are:
1. The world’s tallest Lord Muruga statue, which is 42.7 m high
2. The massive Cathedral Cave (The Temple Cave) which has ceiling over 300 feet high
3. The Dark Cave which has dramatic cave formations, hundreds of species and is the longest cave in Batu Caves
There are a couple of other smaller temples and a cave villa in the area you can visit. Recently rock climbing has become another reason for adventure lovers to visit batu caves.

Today we take you on a tour to Batu Caves, which is 10 km away from KL Sentral. You can easily reach here, while we took a Cab that cost us 20 MYR that translates to Rs 400. You can also reach through the local metro and the buses.
This is dedicated to Lord Murugan & the temple is made of limestone which is said to be around 400 millions years old. The main attraction here is the 140 feet statue which looks beautiful and tall and is visible from a far distance.
Once you reach, there is no tickets and you can directly start entering the cave by claiming the colourful 272 steps that are little tiring but once you see the energy around you easily climb these. Also you are accompanied by hundreds of monkeys that come close to pick up some snacks if you are carrying but its not suggested to feed them.
Once you reach the cave you will find three temples along with a refreshments shop in case you missing bringing water and are also tired climbing the stairs. It took us just 12 minutes to reach the top and then we could enter the temples. The caves have an amazing height with dark interiors and water dripping at a few places.
Overall its a silent space and you can spend a hour or two while having fun with the monkeys. Its a recommend place to visit if you are planning to visit Kuala Lumpur.
Batu Caves One of Malaysia's Top Tourist Attractions
Dark Cave is one of the main caves at Batu Caves hill, located 15km away from the Kuala Lumpur city centre. You come there directly by train (cheap / easy / fast) and very impressive - more information about this trip I report on my blog - (with many photos)
