Kuala Lumpur

Being in a foreign country for the first time can be both challenging and exciting. The planning, the budgeting, the itinerary—everything needs preparation. But the excitement of doing new things for the first time is something to look forward to. Here are some suggestions for the fun activities you can do during your stay in the beautiful city of Kuala Lumpur. Roam around the city on-board the Hop-on Hop-off bus Read more

The Observation Deck at the 86/F of Petronas Twin Towers

When in Kuala Lumpur, seeing Petronas Twin Towers should be on every traveler’s list. Scaling the world’s highest twin towers is optional, but is highly recommended. I intentionally scheduled my visit few minutes before sunset—a time when the sun starts to disappear from the horizon and a moment when the tinge of the welkin alters. I expected for a radiant, vivid, and vibrant skyline. Yes, I already imagined that the Read more

Melaka River at dusk

My sweats were dripping fast. My shirt turned darker with the pretty obvious wet discoloration. Though it was late in the afternoon, the tropical heat radiated as if it was high noon. And so, I took a break from my stroll. It was almost two hours since I started exploring by foot though. I found this dessert bar along the riverbank just across Christ Church.

It was my first time in Kuala Lumpur. I arrived via a bus from Singapore. The only information I had was I am alighting at Puduraya. I had pre-booked my accommodation at Agoda and I used that as assurance that I’ll have a good place to stay. The problem, however, was getting to the hotel from Puduraya.

On-board the Hop-on Hop-off bus

Getting on a bus that would bring you to all of the popular destinations in Kuala Lumpur using a single ticket is a genius idea. Aside from the comfort of getting a public transport, no tourist would get lost. The Kuala Lumpur Hop-on Hop-off bus will get you to your desired destination within the city boundaries. Hop-off to explore—and when done—wait for another bus to hop-on. With the 30-45 minutes bus Read more

A view of downtown Kuala Lumpur from KL Tower observation deck

I couldn’t beat my acrophobia if I won’t challenge it. Though slight, it is still bothersome to some situations. When in Kuala Lumpur, I decided to take on the challenge. After recovering from minor leg twitches, I immediately obtained the discounted Menara KL (Kuala Lumpur Tower) observation deck voucher ticket from the hop-on hop-off bus. That wasn’t part of the plan, though I had in mind to clobber the highest reachable height Read more

Petronas Twin Towers

I travel on shoestring budget, so I grab every saving options to keep my expenses at minimum. Hence, when I travel, I looked for options online for me to buy my attraction passes at a discount. When I traveled to Hong Kong years ago, I bought my attraction passes online weeks prior. I got them at huge discounts. On the top of my list in my Kuala Lumpur visit is Read more
