Kuala Lumpur

We have been to Kuala Lumpur quite a few times now and like it more each time we visit.

Shopping in Kuala Lumpur is fantastic, my favorite place would have to be Pavilion and Suria shopping centres.

Some of the prices we have paid for various items are DVDs 6 RM, computer games and software 5 RM per disc. Men’s Nike Dri Cool tops (from sports store) 70 RM each, copy diesel and billabong t shirts 15 RM each, 12 inch rice paper and wood lamps 50 RM, these come flat packed, with a globe and the plug fits in Australian power points.

We went to a couple of Indian Restaurants and on average paid 85 RM for 2 entrees, 2 main courses, 2 tiger beers and 2 Lassi drinks.

We also did a half day countryside tour booked through the hotel for 55 RM each.

We went to Batu Caves, pretty spectacular, extremely hot climbing a few hundred stairs but were well worth it at the top. Watch the monkeys there though, we saw quite a few distressed tourists who had their bags of souvenirs etc stolen by the monkeys.

I have a great photo of a monkey holding her baby on my photo site, it’s pretty spooky. The Royal Selangor museum, we really enjoyed this and the shop has beautiful things to buy if you like pewter.

Only part of the tour we weren’t that fussed on was the silk factory tour which was really just a whiz past how things are made etc, then get into the shop and be followed everywhere by someone trying to sell you a scarf or sarong worth hundreds of dollars ha-ha. But overall the tour was worth doing if you don’t have much time in KL.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Friendly people, easy to get around, lots to see and do, great shopping.

    I too had my credit card skimmed although it didnt leave my sight and only used it at duty free shop in Langkawi and hotel on checkout. 3 months later bank contacted me to say my card was being used in another country.
