There’s no other city quite like Kuala Lumpur. 

It’s the main gateway to Malaysia and home to a plethora of attractions ranging from culture, heritage, places of interest, shopping, entertainment, nature, adventure, luxury travel, sports, business, events, medical, wellness, and education. 

The city has something for everyone and will have your clients constantly wanting more.

But, in typical tourist form, your clients may not have all the time you would like to explore this incredible destination. 

So we’re here to give you a quick guide on exploring Kuala Lumpur in 48-72 hours.

The iconic spots

What makes this city so incredible is the endless array of iconic destinations for your clients to explore.

To start with we have the KL Tower. This 421-metre tall landmark is one of the world’s tallest towers and is a sight not to be missed.

The incredible tower is surrounded by the Bukit Nenas Tropical Rainforest Reserve, a rainforest, that even maintains its own mini eco-system, situated right in the heart of the city making it the only one of its kind in the world. Alongside this incredible reserve is KL Tower’s Aquarium and a Mini Zoo for everyone of all ages to take in the beauty of Malaysia’s wildlife.

A travellers visit to this enormous tower would not be complete without visiting the Skybox and Observation Deck for a magnificent view of the city.

And if witnessing this stunning view with an incredible meal and a glass of wine is what your client is after then the Revolving Restaurant at KL Tower is perfect for them.

If you’re client wants a nature-filled getaway then the illuminating scenes of the KL Bird Park and KL Butterfly Garden will have you enthralled for hours.

The KL Bird Park is the tallest walk-in free-flight aviary in the world and is home to over 200 species of birds. With more than 3000 birds, made up of mainly Asian species, everyone can relish in delight at the surreal array of colourful winged wonders.

 

If the bird park isn’t enough, the butterfly park will be the place where your clients can find butterflies in all manner of size and colours as they fly around freely on the covered grounds. There is also a gallery that features all kinds of Malaysian bugs and insects, from centipedes to spiders.

For the shoppers in the group, Bukit Bintang Street is a must-go. The area has long been Kuala Lumpur’s most prominent retail belt that is home to many landmark shopping centres, al-fresco cafés, swanky bars, night markets, as well as hawker-type eateries.

And for those looking to explore the whole city then the KL Hop on Hop Off tour lets travellers experience the city with a panoramic view.

Enjoy the hi-rise building, view historical landmarks and the beautiful green scenery that is unique to Kuala Lumpur during a hassle-free recreational tour.

A day trip away

While the city hosts a rich array of tourist possibilities, there are countless spots nearby Kuala Lumpur that are perfect for a day trip.

First, there is Batu Caves, a stunning location with Hindu shrines and Swamis to explore inside and outside, with the monumental gold statue of Lord Murgan overlooking the vast city of Kuala Lumpur. 

From here, you can take up the mantle and walk up a flight of 272 rainbow coloured stairs towards the limestone Temple Cave. 

A touch west of KL is Kuala Selangor, or Sky Mirror, a small coastal town that’s home to the largest firefly colony in the world.

Tell your clients to get a relaxing boat tour up the Selangor river at night to wonder at the fireflies and hear from the guide about the local area.

If your clients are left unsatisfied by the fireflies (which is unimaginable to us) then Kuala Selangor is home to the Melawti Bird Sanctuary, where birds and monkeys line the trees for some animal watching.

Finally, if you’re feeling lucky, head out to Genting Highlands where Malaysia’s only casino resort is. 

If the Casino isn’t your clients’ vibe, check out the indoor/outdoor theme park with roller coasters, a skydiving simulator, and much more to get your blood pumping.

And of course, take a ride on the cable car for gorgeous views of the Malaysian rainforest below.

The borders are finally open now and there is no better time or place for your clients to experience the Malaysian extraordinaire of Kuala Lumpur.
