For tourists visit 2 days, you can walk from Chinatown to Bukit Bintang to KLCC in one day. The next day, walk to KL tower, lake garden, merdeka square, Chow Kit and Little India. If you have 3 days or more, some of my tips and links probably helps. Below are important links to city centres full of worldwide tourists all come with photos and tips. Besides, I also include many links for tourists to see some unseen outer Kuala Lumpur. Map is here. For tourists looking for nightlife can try my Telawi of Bangsar page. For shoppers, I have a quite up-to-date shopping list for you and for renewing passport, visa and others please try Worldwide Embassies in Kuala Lumpur and Visa Requirements (Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Malaysia). Online temperature of KL and weather conditions, bus ticket low cost air tickets and many more infos
Small towns nearby
Tourists who want to visit nearby towns by bus (usually 3-5 hours, get your bus ticket at bus stations, cost less than RM30 per trip), you can try Seremban, Bentong, Raub, Temerloh, Tapah, Teluk Intan, Kuala Selangor, Banting, etc. All places listed here have 1-5 star hotels (usually cost RM40-100) and restaurants (always a KFC, if you must, RM9 per dinner plate), I have been there many times, recently, to spend my weekends, relax, sleep, eat, photos, etc.
The British Industrial Revolution needed tin for making high technology products, they came here to search for materials. They import workers from the old Qing Empire to excavate tin. Peoples of Qing (China) came here to earn money to send back home. Some tin miners began to settle down and later became known as the Lumpurians. Kuala Lumpur meaning muddy estuary, the location excavate tin was at the river cross around year 1857. Why the British chosen Qing Empire, why not Africans, Burmese or Siamese? This is interesting, go home to think, or you visit here to find out.
“ The term Industrial Revolution originally referred to the developments that transformed Great Britain, between 1750 and 1830, from a largely rural population making a living almost entirely from agriculture to a town-centered society engaged increasingly in factory manufacture. “ read more here

Outer Kuala Lumpur
Outer Kuala Lumpur is not suitable for luxurious sightseeing. Roads especially are convoluted as most are one-way while some are as narrow as our staircase. Some villages have dogs chasing intruders and some have questionably eyes staring at outsiders. Visiting outer Kuala Lumpur is all about visiting villages where you are actually snapping photos at villagers. Private transportation is needed to explore outer Kuala Lumpur. Walking is not recommended, bicycles are welcome but be careful as most roads did not provide bicycle lane, motorcycle is so far the best. You probably need to rent a car or a motorcycle to be able to explore most of these unseen areas.

What we do here is meeting, not normal meeting but VT Meeting. This activity is for all www.virtualtourist.com members to meet each others at anywhere they want. This photo is my first ever VT meeting with Paul Guantanamera. He hails from St.Paul of US. Few days before Paul came, he sent an email to me and I meet him up at his hotel in Chinatown. I drove him around as two VTers on a 150cc bike went exploring several locations of the city, also he visited my house. What a website.
Few months later I have another second VT Meeting in Bukit Bintang's Starbucks Coffee with o00o; jenniferchin; dragontml and cat_y88. We don't need any rules or regulations in the meeting, that's why we joined this worldwide travel website. So don't wait, come join us.
