Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: Truly Asia - Part 2

Here's the second half of my Malaysia travel escapade. They surely have numerous tourist destinations around the city of Kuala Lumpur and a day, I guess, wouldn't be enough to visit them.


Malaysia's China Town

A popular place for tourists to shop souvenirs at a very low price is the KL Central Market and China Town. A lot of people flock the place every day at any time so be sure to prepare yourself walking through the crowded streets. Be cautious as well of your personal belongings while walking through the china town area.

Have some Malaysian Currency with you, the Malaysian Ringgit MYR, so it will be easier and more convenient to deal with the store owners and haggle more discounts.

Another popular and stunning place around KL is the Kuala Lumpur High Court. It's located in front of Dataran Mardeka flag where one of the largest flagpole in Malaysia is located. The KL High Court separates itself from the usual Malaysia scene because of it's unique building facade.

TRAVEL TIP: Malaysia is a Muslim-dominated country and religion for them plays an important role in their daily lives. There are a lot of temples around the city where people gather to worship. Be aware of the things to follow when visiting a Mosque in Malaysia. Anyhow, they do provide especially to women some proper clothes to cover the body from head to toe, something like a robe I think, when entering their mosques.

I stayed at Hotel Royal during my overnight stay in KL. The hotel is conveniently located around the area of Bukit Bintang and adjacent to Jalan Walter Grenier Street. Along Bukit Bintang area, there are a lot of shopping centers, malls, and coffee shops nearby. One of my Malaysian friend also told me that there are a lot night bars along the area so if you wanna chill out, try walking down the roads of Bintang.

TRAVEL TIP: You may freely visit some online hotel booking sites for Hotel Royal for the up-to-date room rates and accommodation. I suggest you to visit www.agoda.com or www.hotels.com for cheaper online rates.

It's my first-time visiting Malaysia and I learned a lot about their culture even just for a short time. Oh well, hope to have more opportunities to visit the country again and perhaps, visit more places such as Kota Kinabalu (KK), Langkawi, or Melaka. :)
