Tour to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


Malaysia: Truly Asia

Year of Festivals & Endless Celebrations 



PETRONAS TWIN TOWER

This was my first time to travel out of the country. And the first country that I ever visited was Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia 3 years ago *2015.

Finally, I was able to write this content after 3 years, Thanks to Apple Support, I able to retrieve all the pictures on my previous iCloud account.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Me at the KLIA Arrival




Before heading out to the United Arab Emirates, I decided to have a tour first in Kuala Lumpur for 3 days and 2 nights. 

Travel Time


The travel time from Iloilo City, Philippines via Manila to Kuala Lumpur takes 6 hours and 55 mins.
Malaysia is a Southeast Asian country occupying parts of the Malay peninsula and the island of Borneo.





I booked the trip alone without any accompaniment and so when I arrived at the KLIA Arrival, a representative is waiting outside holding a signage with my name on it.

Hotel Accommodation


The hotel is rated 2.5 by Trip Advisor. The hotel is so simple, no fancy things. If you don't expect anything but for sleeping only, this the Hotel that I can recommend. The hotel is near to the shopping complex and the place was quite also near the city center. Bed and breakfast are also available.

Day 01


Since It's my Day 1. I decided to take some rest a bit and went to the City Center to check some food to eat.
It's 12:35 AM,  no shops were open and I am in a hurry and starving, so I decided to buy some cup noodles in a 24/7 convenience store. Went back to the hotel and took rest.


Day 02


Bed and Breakfast


Breakfast Timings was 8: AM. I was alone in the morning and none other guests were available at that time. Omelet egg, coffee, bread, and beans.

I waited for half an hour for the driver to pick me up.

This was A half day SIC City Tour.
The trip was a journey through the central city to view the Moorish Architecture.

First Stop :


Istana Negara: King's Palace

ISTANA NEGARA


The King's Palace is so beautiful. We are on the main gate. And outside the gate were guards stand still which is similar to the British Guards. It was the residence of the King, way back in 2011.
Were allowed to take a photo of them. I had even one.



Pictures below:












Second Stop:


National Museum


Much of the National Museum’s original collection of artworks was razed during a World War II bombing. Its impressive collection starts with ritual weddings, the way how Malaysian lives before (fishing, weaving and more).

There's a life-size traditional house as well. I am not sure what is the name of that traditional house, however, the house was fully decorated with gold and silver ornaments. And it comes with very intricate detail. There are also traditional musical instruments in the museum.

Here are the pictures that I took within the vicinity of the Museum:






























Third Stop:


National Monument






The National Monument was built in dedication to Malaysia's Soldier who died during the emergency struggle for freedom, principally against the Japanese occupation during World War II and the Malayan Emergency, which lasted from 1948 until 1960.

A spacious massive land with a perfect landscape will welcome you. The spot is overlooking the City Center. If you want to unwind and spend some time with your Family or have some short walk. This is the best place to unwind.

Some pictures below:













Fourth Stop:


Old Kuala Lumpur Railway Station





After Petronas Twin Tower the famous landmark of Kuala Lumpur. Next to it is the Old Kuala Lumpur Railway Station. It's the unique Anglo-Asian architecture in the region.

Had some pictures below:






Fifth Stop:


Malaysia Batik



Malaysia Batik is a textile art in Malaysia.
Batik is a technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to the whole cloth.

It is the national identity of Malaysia, there National Costume and its part of their cultural heritage.

Interesting pictures below:

















Sixth Stop:


The Chocolate Kingdom



If you are a chocolate lover, this would be your chocolate heaven.
We stop over to Beryl's Chocolate Kingdom to sample some local chocolates.
Wide selection of chocolates to choose from dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate.

An interesting exhibition and if you have kids, surely they will love this place.
Note: I was not able to take more pictures as my phone's battery was about to die. My spare battery was left on the bus. :(


Here are some of the pictures:












Seventh and Last Stop :


Petronas Twin towers



The Twin Tower is named after Petroliam Nasional Company, as the company owns the towers, and the Tower One is fully occupied by the company as its headquarters.  The Tower Two, however, was leased by some of the giant companies, to name a few were Microsoft and IBM.

Unfortunately, the spot we took a picture was too far from our location, and the weather condition was foggy. It's just outside of the chocolate kingdom.  Good thing, I was able to take a few snaps before as the service van was able to pass by near the Tower before the tour began.

Here's some of the picture below:









After the tour, I transferred back to the hotel and at leisure.
So I still have the time to discover and roam around the City Center.

At Leisure:


Berjaya Times Square




One of the largest shopping mall in the region. It has a large food court, amusement area and has an indoor roller coaster. You can ask for a bargain from selected shops which is comparable in the market outside the mall.

Branded boutiques are available as well such as Burberry and Giordano to name a few.

Here are some pictures below:
















Day 03:

Breakfast and Free day


I still have a few more hours for my check out and I got the chance to roam again in the City.
Bought some souvenirs and returned back to the hotel.

Some pictures around the city center:

























Check out at 12:00 PM and transported to the Airport.


So far, that's my 3 days stay in Malaysia.  I think 3 days is not enough to visit all the places and there are still more beautiful spots to visit.
