"A Big Surprise" Kuala Lumpur by backpackerbaby

Kuala Lumpur Travel Guide: 6,285 reviews and 14,644 photos

I longed to visit Malaysia. Two years before, I got a chance to stop-over in KL during a flight transit. Owing to the hot weather, owing to being alone, owing to lack of planning, I didn't make good use of that chance. It's really a regrettable mistake. I should have visited this lovely place earlier.

This time, as a part of our great Easter vacation, we spent totally 3 nights in KL: 2 nights before heading to Langkawi and 1 more night after relaxing on Langkawi before heading back to Singapore. Every moment was unforgettable.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Friendly people, great food, served by Air Asia!
  • In a nutshell:out of expectation!
