Malaysia’s Thriving Multicultural Capital: Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia’s Thriving Multicultural Capital: Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (B)

After a week surrounded by Langkawi’s pristine wildlife and beautiful beaches, why not come back to civilization?

I have to admit Kuala Lumpur never inspired me. I thought it was only another metropolis, trying to win the title of South East Asia’s best city to visit. I was wrong. Again! It is a vibrant, fun and clean city!

We arrived in Kuala Lumpur early afternoon, and we almost didn’t leave the DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur, because our suite was soooo comfortable, and the view from the 34th floor, at the Executive Lounge, was so astonishing, we didn’t feel the need to explore the city right away! By the way, this is one of the most exquisite hotel we have ever been. We never stay in top-end hotels, and try to avoid the dirty cheap ones too. But at the DoubleTree KL, we had the best of both worlds: the rooms are amazing, and staying there don’t break the bank.

Another thing I really enjoyed at DoubleTree KL is its Tiny Trees initiative. When you are a parent, you want to have a comfortable and safe stay. Tiny Trees make sure you will have both. They offer so many useful things our little ones might need: pacifiers, bottles, a chair potty, bibs, baby walker, and much more. Seriously, I’ve been around the world, and I have never seen anything like it. The only problem is, more hotels should offer the same. It’s outrageous how hotels are the first to make us pay for our kids’ hotel stay, but offer only a bed in return. We all know it takes much more than that with a young child. And who wants to carry with them on a trip a baby walker? Not me! To learn more about our stay at the DoubleTree KL, read A Well Renowned Family Retreat: DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur. ......
