As a bona fide denizen of Kuala lumpur I thought that it is high time to start a blog that highlights all the fabulous bits of Kuala Lumpur from a personal and candid point of view.
Whether you are a tourist, or born and bred in KL, I hope that you will find something fab in this website to take away on every visit. Do drop me a message anytime if you have any questions or if you would like me to check out any new hotspots in the city (I would be happy to do the legwork for you).

Kuala Lumpur has often been said to be the best place to get a good, authentic sampling of asian culture. The population of Malaysia consists of three major races (Malay, Chinese and Indian) and this is apparent in the capital’s food, architecture and culture. Kuala Lumpur is an extremely easy city to travel around where almost everybody in the city has a basic understanding of the English language.
Did you know that budget airline and promo flight tickets could sometimes cost less than bus and train tickets? Did you know that many full serviced airlines often offer promo fares that cost less than half of their usual price? Due to the highly competitive nature of air travel, many airlines, be it budget airlines of 5 star airlines, offer unbelievable promo fares that are just too good to give it a miss.
When they were completed in 1996, the KLCC Twin Towers were the tallest buildings in the world. Today, they remain to be the tallest twin towers in the world and one of the most visited sites in Kuala Lumpur. Accolades aside, the towers are just beautiful to look at and is high on the list of must-dos for many tourists.
Picking the right time to visit a beach paradise could mean the difference between basking in the sun for the entire trip or spending the entire vacation surfing the internet in your hotel room. Many of the major beach destinations in Asia experience monsoon rains and gloomy weather during several months of the year. If you are planning a seaside holiday trip anytime soon, it pays to do a little research before you buy your flight tickets.
By Air Thanks to the variety of budget airlines that serves this route, taking a flight has become the best way to travel between these two cities. There are three major budget airlines serving this route, namely Air Asia, Tiger Airways and Jetstar. There are also lots of other full service airlines that serve this route.
Taxi Just like with most airports around the world, taking the taxi is the fastest, yet most expensive way to get to the city. A one-way trip would set you back around RM120 or so, depending on the exact location that you are going to. When you arrive, you will find several counters selling taxi coupons at the arrival hall.
Considering that you could probably spend more than 12 hours a day in your hotel, it makes sense to invest a little time before you depart, to make sure that you choose the right one for the trip. Regardless of your budget, a little research goes a long way when selecting your hotel. Here are some quick tips to choosing your right one.
A couple of years back, scientists have declared Raja Ampat as the number one, most biodiverse marine ecosystem on the planet. That’s right, you heard right. This area contains the most species of corals, fishes and other marine life compared to any other place on earth.
Yes, it might be one of the more expensive tourist attractions in Singapore, but really, it is hard not to have fun at Universal Studios. Regardless of your age and preferences, Universal Studios is a great place to spend a relaxing afternoon with your friends or loved ones. I would recommend spending an entire day here if possible and go for all the rides!
Zoos are always on my list of must-go places whenever I visit someplace new. The Singapore Zoo is one of the best in the region and is definitely worth for anyone who would like to take some time off from the bustling city. Some videos taken at the zoo during our visit:
The Singapore Flyer is definitely something that you would want to add into your itinerary if you are into gorgeous views. Here are some photos of it during our visit.
In recent years, the prices of hotels in Singapore have spiked sharply due to sudden influx of tourists, making them comparable to those in western Europe. During my last stay there, we stayed at the Porcelain Hotel in Chinatown. It cost around SGD130 per night and overall, we had a pleasant stay there.
