Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur Guide (B): First Time in Kuala Lumpur: What to Do & Where to Eat

I thought it’s about time I wrote a post like this, now that I’ve been in Kuala Lumpur for almost a year (on and off).

Over these months, I’ve had some friends visit, which requires me to brainstorm a list of things to do/eat for them. And some people who happen to find my blog also ask for suggestions. I’m by nooooo means an local expert, but so I don’t have to repeat myself over and over, I figured I’d put it all in one post!

For this guide, I’m only focusing on the city center, because I’m guessing this is where most visitors will stay. And most people only pass through KL for a few days, so I’m sure this is way more than enough options to fill your time! I may write something later on other areas outside of the city center.

A bit about my KL experience: I first came as a tourist, and long story short, it resulted in me meeting a local guy, which resulted in me living in KL for most of the year (while that relationship is over now, I stayed). I spent about 2 months living in the city center in Bukit Bintang, and then moved out to live in one of the suburbs. These suggestions are based on what’s popular to do as a tourist and things I learned from locals. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
