  • Places to visit in Kuala Lumpur - Part 2

    In this part, I am exploring places located at the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur. KL has a great public transport comprising buses, trains, light rail and taxis. Public transport is very cheap as compared to catching taxis. However, my experience is that renting a car and driving in Kuala Lumpur is the most convenient way to explore more and save time, as public transport can be crowded and time-consuming. 

    Some of the interesting places like Batu Caves, Genting Highlands and Tropicale Colmar are located at less than 1-hour driving distance from Kuala Lumpur. This makes these locations a great destination for a day trip. Genting Highlands can get very crowded over the weekends and public holidays. Surprisingly the hotel rates drop by more than 70% in mid-week at First World Hotel. Check Rates online. Also, if you are driving you will find a lot of lesser traffic on the roads. I have tried to compile a comprehensive list of the best things to do in Kuala Lumpur as well as the best attractions for kids and families in KL.
