Everyone knows that the Bukit Bintang district in Kuala Lumpur is the place to party. But what do you do when you’re tired of the clubbing? Are there things to do then? Let’s find out.
The Central Market
The Central Market is one of the more popular tourist places in Kuala Lumpur. It’s a perfect depiction of the various races and ethnicities that make up the heritage of Malaysia. There’s a wonderful flea market atmosphere and prices are cheap. It is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m and is one of the most famous tourist places in Kuala Lampur.
Sri Maamariamman Temple
Kuala Lumpur’s main Hindu temple was built in 1873. The gopuram tower is 75ft tall and adorned with 228 Hindu idols. The temple’s elaborate festival which occurs in January or February annually is a sight to behold.
Chan See Shu Yuen Temple
Built between the years of 1897 and 1906, the elaborate vestiges and terracotta friezes of this temple which is the oldest surviving Buddhist temple in Malaysia should be explored in daylight.
Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve
One of the oldest permanent forest reserves with well-maintained nature trails for a few minutes of nature while in the heart of the city. It is over 100 years old.
Known as the “cultural heart of local cuisine,” Jalan Alor is a night street food market which is about a 15-minute walk from Dorsett Kuala Lumpur. It is a place you can enjoy with all your senses, sitting on the plastic chairs on the walk, watching as the vendors grill chicken and beef skewers, barbecue, make noodles and dessert.
An iconic Malaysian landmark, it sits atop Bukit Nanas forest reserve which is also home to a revolving restaurant and a viewing deck at 276 metres for gorgeous scenes of Kuala Lumpur.
