Batu Caves

These impressive limestone caves are also used for Hindu festivals and pilgrimages.

Reviewed By Mpumemath - Durban, South Africa

Beautiful beautiful place. Prices are extremely reasonable, the Stuart friendly, the walk up the stairs was epic and I encourage anyone looking for fun and a little workout simultaneously! It’s beautiful, monkeys running around (don’t take bananas up unless you like monkeys). Stunning view and absolutely worth it! The final touch is the vendors when you come down that have fresh coconut! Loved it!

Petronas Twin Towers

No trip to KL would be complete without a visit to the world's tallest twin towers. The skyscrapers are utterly stunning, particularly when illuminated at night. The Twin Towers Visit Operations is open Tuesday through Sunday and tickets are released at 8:30 a.m. on a first-come, first-served basis. To avoid disappointment, you can purchase your ticket in advance via online ticketing or at the Ticketing Counter, Concourse Level.

I am local in Kuala Lumpur. Recently decided to take my two young grandnephews to visit the iconic KLCC twin towers. We took the Skybridge tour.
Ticket counter opens at 0830. When I arrived at 0800 there was a short queue ahead.
The tour was handled by staff who are friendly and caring. I suggest the tour be a little more informative, like telling us something about the architecture, the construction experience and where we are looking at in the Kuala Lumpur skyline.
Once inside and on top, you feel the grandeur of this building.

Firstly the guides here are outstanding. This is the highlight of the Batu Caves visit. While not as spectacular as many cave tours, it is interesting and the guides really know their stuff. Its an easy train ride from the city and the monkey's are very cute.

KLCC Park

Reviewed By Vernon S - Melbourne, Australia

If you love the shade from the heat this is the place for you.Beautiful trees and walkways good for a stroll.There are many cafes and restaurants, if you desire to have breakfast lunch or dinner, I recommend having dinner as it's when the night colour of KL can be enjoyed while you have dinner.

FRIM -Forest Research Institute of Malaysia

Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife on the nature trails. Then enjoy a bird's-eye-view of the trees by crossing the Canopy Walkway. This unique conservation facility is located 20 kilometers from Kuala Lumpur.

Reviewed By SanHec - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Great place to have a morning walk or cycling with children.
Admission fee for both car and per person, no expensive. The fee is to fund the forest and maintaining.
One can drive all the way in to a parking area near the waterfall and food stalls area. Or, the healthy will prefer to walk slowly in passing the fish pond and green tall tress.
Picnic near waterfall in encouraging as this area come with gazebos and washroom facilities. Do remind picnic goer to throw the rubbish in the respective area.
Advance arrangement for forest ranger will be very helpful if you have many children around, the ranger is very informative. It can be a fun field education trip.
Note: very sad to know that the canopy walk is no longer open.

Majlis Perbandaran Selayang Stadium

Reviewed By Shane-Greazely - Hong Kong

I'm always eager to get of the tourist map whenever possible. We thought it would be fun to check out the local sports scene and saw that football ('soccer') is the real only spectator sports. Unfortunately, we were in KL from Monday to Thursday and all the top 2 division games were on Fridays or Saturdays. After some research, I found the 3rd tier league,

Cave Villa

Reviewed By BSManiam

The parrots phototaking station at Cave Villa is a MUST skip station/shop.
The photographer takes the photos very quickly and he does not let you choose the best photos that you want. Instead the photographer himself selects the best photos for you and prints all these photos in 8R size at a cost of RM60 per photo and hard sells them to you.
They claim don't have 4R size. All the selections and printings are done so quickly that they do not give you the opportunity to decide.
The photographer printed 5 photos (without obtaining my consent) and tried to hard sell them for RM250.
A very unethical way to do business. A MUST miss station/shop.
There is another shop at Templers Waterfall Park which offers similar services to take photos with parrots. Here the photographer takes photos till you are satisfied and let's you choose the best to be printed in 4R size at only RM20. They also place the photos on a beautiful photo holder. If you want to take photos with parrots, consider going to the shop at Templers Waterfall Park (the shop is located next to the food store)

Royal Selangor Visitor Centre

Royal Selangor Visitor Centre is the go-to place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to experience pewter, both as a beautiful piece to be admired and as a craft. Wander through intriguing museum exhibits and witness real-time pewter crafting and end your tour with hands-on pewtersmithing workshops.

On our private tour, we enjoyed seeing and hearing about the history and family stories of this unique company. Each of the areas contained very interesting and unique sights and information. It was part of a day tour, well worth the short time to stop and enjoy.

Spent 2-3hours here is a best choice I had made today. Gained knowledge here and have a relaxing day. RM5 per entry and the food price here is totally reasonable compared with other places. Free WiFi and 5-10 min distance from Botanical Garden.Dear Viki S, Thank you for your review. I hope to see you here again very soon. Our upcoming Exhibitions on Merdeka will open at the end of August.
