Walking across the Bridge you can see the historical Abdul Samad Building which is opposite to Merdeka Square and City Library. Merdeka square hosts the highest flagpole in the world bearing the flag of Malaysia. Sultan Abdul Samad building provides a backdrop to many historical events in the country and currently holds the offices of the ministry of information.
Walking further on I went to Petaling Street to see explore some shopping and street food. Petaling offers a similar experience to Bukit Bintang offering a great bargain, affordable hotels and hustle and bustle all through the night. The place is quite attractive if you are travelling on budgets and want to enjoy budget food and great shopping bargains. You can find a wide range of imitation brands of shoes, watches, bags etc. Don't forget to try the salted roasted duck which is a speciality in this area. This dish is sold on hawker stalls.
Other Kuala Lumpur attractions include Batu Caves located on the outskirts of the city. If you like joyrides or casinos, Genting is fun-packed holiday destination popular with Malaysians. A 4km long chairlift takes your from bus stand to Awana resorts where buses can take you to different resorts in the highlands. On a clear day, you can have a birds-eye view of Kuala Lumpur city from top floors of First World Hotel, which claim to have more than 4000 rooms.
