Kuala Lumpur Holidays & Hotels

Hotels in Kuala Lumpur

Whether you’re a backpacker on a tight budget, or a couple splashing out on the holiday of a lifetime, Kuala Lumpur has accommodation that will please all. It’s got a number of upmarket chain hotels, many of which offer sought-after access to an outdoor swimming pool or spa. In addition, they also have relatively cheap budget hotel rooms and simple backpacker hostels.

While popular as a layover destination, Kuala Lumpur is a city that has heaps to offer below its cosmopolitan surface. Malaysia’s capital city has a climate that remains warm all year round, rarely dropping below the 20°Cs. No matter what time of year you fly into Kuala Lumpur, you’ll be sure to have the perfect weather to explore more of this incredible city.

Where to stay

KLCC

Slap bang in the middle of all the action, Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) is the place to be if you only have a few days to play with. On your doorstep will be everything from the Petronas Twin Towers to the Aquarium, ensuring you can whisk through all the key sites in just a matter of days. KLCC is also home to a chic selection of evening entertainment options, including upmarket restaurants, bars and live music venues.

Bukit Bintang

Just a short walk away from the city centre is Bukit Bintang, a trendy neighbourhood of Kuala Lumpur that’s popular with people who like their nightlife vibrant. A stay here guarantees you’ll be close to all the shopping centres, nightclubs and entertainment opportunities, while you’ll also have easy access to the rest of the city via the monorail. Accommodation options range from budget backpacker hostels to stylish upmarket hotels.

Petaling Jaya

For those who want to immerse themselves in Malaysian culture should consider staying in the nearby city of Petaling Jaya. It’s only around 20 minutes from Kuala Lumpur on the train, but it’s a great area for families owing to its array of child-friendly resorts, many with indoor or outdoor pools. Petaling Jaya is also rich in entertainment, with plenty of shopping, dining and nightlife opportunities available, including Sunway Lagoon amusement park and the Chocolate Museum.

What to see

Sightseeing in Kuala Lumpur encompasses so much more than the iconic 88-storey Petronas Twin Towers - although it’s a great place to start. Those with a head for heights can take a trip up to the skybridge for views all across the city. For even more sky-high views, visit nearby Menara Kuala Lumpur. Elsewhere, the Sri Mahamariamman Temple is the oldest Hindu temple in Kuala Lumpur. It’s worth heading along for a glimpse of its ornate and colourful exterior. Kuala Lumpur also has many sights for the whole family to enjoy during their holiday, including its Bird Park, aquarium and Perdana Botanical Gardens.

Outside of the city centre, there’s a lot of history and culture to get to grips with - as well as some once-in-a-lifetime views. Batu Caves are a popular sight on Instagram thanks to its multicoloured staircase, but it’s also the site of a series of cave temples. It’s also worth taking the time to visit the Forestry Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM) where the man-made forests offer the perfect spot for hiking and picnicking.

Nightlife

There’s always something going on after dark in Kuala Lumpur, whether it’s a night market or nightclub. For a low-key, casual cheap evening with the locals, give the traditional coffee shops a visit. Dotted around the city, these are the best place to get people-watching with a cup of coffee in one hand and a plate of noodles in the other. If it’s vibrant nightlife you want, head to the city’s Golden Triangle, bordered by the three streets of Jalan Imbi, Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Raja Chulan. Around this area you’ll find bars, restaurants and clubs, while karaoke spots can be found in the Chinatown neighbourhood.

What to eat

With such an exotic dining scene, it can be hard to know which foods to focus on especially when majority of the street food are very cheap. However, there are undoubtedly several meals you must try before your holiday ends. Nasi Lemak consists of coconut rice, fried anchovies and a spicy shrimp paste, and is considered Malaysia’s national dish. Char Kuey Teow is another local favourite, made up of stir-fried flat rice noodles with eggs, prawns and cockles. To round up your meal, tuck into some Kuih lapis, a steamed nine-layer cake made using tapioca flour, coconut milk and coarse sugar.

Shopping

Kuala Lumpur is a holiday shopper’s paradise, offering multiple shopping opportunities day and night. Petaling Street’s night market is beloved by locals and holidaymakers alike. Based in Chinatown, the market is regularly deemed a bargain hunter’s paradise, offering the chance to pick up some food, clothing and accessories at rock-bottom prices.

On the other end of the scale, there’s Jalan Bukit Bintang, a street that’s home to a variety of fashion boutiques and high-quality shopping centres. If you want to pick up a selection of authentic souvenirs and gifts for loved ones back home, Central Market Kuala Lumpur is a must. It’s also got an on-site food court so that you can fuel up mid-shop.

KL is a great city

KL is a nice city. It has a good selection of hotels to chose from. It is usually used as a base to travel further. I would recommend a few days to stop to spend at the city and would highly recommend staying at the traders hotel near klcc.
