    Bukit Bintang is the heart of tourist activities in Kuala Lumpur. The famous food street Jalan Alor is located in Bukit Bintang and is a must-visit location for food lovers. The food stalls and restaurants stay open until the early hours of the morning. Changkat is the heart of the nightlife with a number of sports bars and clubs.

  • Places to visit in Kuala Lumpur - Part 2

    In this part, I am exploring places located at the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur. Kuala Lumpur city has great public transport comprising buses, trains, light rail and taxis. Public transport (light rails network) 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 in the day time. 

    Some of the interesting places like Batu Caves, Genting Highlands and Tropicale Colmar are located at less than 1.5-hours driving distance from Kuala Lumpur. This makes these locations a great destination for a day trip from Kuala Lumpur City. Genting Highlands attracts large crowds over the weekends and public holidays and is a must-visit destination for the entire family. 

    If you are planning a trip to Genting Highlands, book your accommodation and activities in advance to obtain over 40% discounts. Walk-in rates are normally very high. I normally book through HotelsCombined network. I suggest a 14-day advance purchase where you can get added benefits like free parking, breakfast or pay on arrival options etc. Compare Cheapest Rates for Genting Highlands Hotels online .
