My experience at Traders Hotel by Shangrila in Kuala Lumpur

Looking for one of the best places to stay in Kuala Lumpur? Look no further. Traders Hotel is a great choice for its great features and an ideal location next to KLCC Park and Petronas Tower. Traders hotel is ranked as one of the best hotels in the KLCC area. 

I had stayed at Trader's Hotel a couple of times in the last 3 years. The place is in high demand and the best way to get the most competitive rates is to book in advance

The hotel is ideal if you want to stay close to the centre of the city and want to enjoy shopping and dining out without the hassle of driving into different parts of the city. If booked in advance you can get a double room for around $US130  for a double room including breakfast, which is quite a deal.

Skybar is one of the most popular hangouts commanding great views of KLCC Park and Petronas Twin Tours. Shaped around the rooftop pool, enjoy the ambient atmosphere of Middle-Eastern and modern decor. Light food is also served on the weekends. The crowd is trendy and hype and Skybar is a great place to meet like-minded travellers and visitors to the city. 

At night time you can sit right next to the windows overlooking KL central park and enjoy the night views and live music at the pool. Skybar is a must-visit even if you are not staying at Traders.

I have been exploring South-East Asia for over twenty years and have visited some of the best destinations in the region. Through my blog, I want to share some interesting travel tips, my experience of driving across Asian destinations and some of the best places to explore in this region. I have undertaken hundreds of road trips, across Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia. Most of the information in this blog comes through my own road trips and adventures in the exotic locations I have visited. 

I have, in the past followed in Anthony Bourdain's footsteps and visited most of the restaurants his team explored in their shows. Join in on my adventures and follow my trails on Instagram & Facebook Page.
