I did leave you with a post last month on what to do in Langkawi, this post is the next and the last in the series. If you have 2 day in Kuala Lumpur and were wondering what to do in just 2 days, well don’t worry we have it sorted for you. During my recent visit to Malaysia, I only had 2 days to look around the city, I wish I had more ‘coz there was so much on my list I couldn’t check off. But then I’m glad I had at least 2 days at hand.
Arrival at the Kuala Lumpur from Langkawi and we headed straight to our hotel, we were booked at the Le Apple KLCC hotel, Jalan Ampang Road and I’m so happy we picked that one. It was just about a few meters away from the Petronas towers and the Suria KLCC Shopping Centre. Although we spent more time shopping at the one just opposite to our hotel, which was the MRT stop for KLCC. Anyway we just checked into our hotel to freshen up quickly and then stepped out to go explore the neighborhood.
Day 1 was all about KLCC and everything around it, the Petronas towers, the Aquaria KLCC and the Suria shopping mall too. We explored the Petronas towers, the sky view at night is much better than the day, so visit the top most accessible floor at the Petronas late evening. While the Aquaria KLCC was quite interesting, with a lot of aquatic beings. The next stop was the KLCC park that was filled with greenery, with a sight that was luscious enough to soothe our eyes.
Day 2: We took the MRT to Bukit Bintang, to take a look at the local market, along with the intention to savour the local cuisine as well. The street is filled with shopping avenues and you’d be wondering which one to visit, take your pick as each of it will surely add a different experience to your travel. We also planned on visiting the Petaling Street the China town of KL, known for it’s counterfeit market (didn’t shop anything there though). At night we explored the food street in and around KLCC, there are quite a few and you would be shocked by the cuisines you’d get to taste. Islamic Arts Museum is a lovely place to explore the art history. A visit to Berjaya Times Square in the evening is a sight to see, if you visit early in the day you’d perhaps be interested in visiting their amusement park.
If you do have an extra day then do visit the Batu Caves and the Genting Highlands ‘coz I have heard some great reviews and sad that we didn’t have time for it.
We are all set for the Night, My retro Look !! #LoveKL #LoveMalaysia #VacayMode #ootdshare #streetstyle #fashiongram #Styleapastiche #indianfashionblogger #Indianblogger #instafashion #instalike #instalove #instadaily #howtowear #SS16 #instamood #IndianFashionista

Tips for first timers in Kuala Lumpur:
- Getting around in Kuala Lumpur is easy, just board the MRT and you are good to go.
- Do not talk to the cab drivers, they are unabashedly and unapologetic-ally rude (I don’t know why). Should you need a cab then ask your hotel to arrange for it, or just book an Uber.
- Shop at the Bukit Bintang, if you are on a budget.
- Do not shop for fakes, instead shop for high street Malaysian Brands
- Stay at hotels with a sky view, that is why we picked the Le Apple KLCC
- Do not wear Gold or precious jewellery while at the local market
