Itinerary help! 31 Dec - 4 Jan (3 nights)


It will be my 2nd time to KL, will be staying in Bukit Bintang area.

I am familar with the shopping centres, however want help with other sights to see.

Any suggestions on itinerary what to do, for this short trip to KL..?

Are taxi drivers cheaper than doing tours?

Also, where is the best place to be for NYE 2010, we arrive in the morning?? Night club suggestions?

Have you looked at the top questions about Kuala Lumpur, especially . .

 FAQ KL Popular sights

 FAQ KL Sights Monorail / LRT

Lots of information about the sights.

You don't need to hire a taxi driver, but you would for the out of town sights. Most of the in town sights are easy to do using public transport and walking.

Really up to you to figure out what you want to see, as my idea of a great 5 days might be your idea of hell!

KLCC park / Petronas Towers is THE place to be on NYE rather than any club.

For your first night in KL, just be on the street in Bukit Bintang for the count down and enjoy the fireworks.

Just be careful with your belongings when you are on the street that night, lots of people around and pick pockets would be looking out for easy target.

Leave your passport in the hotel, carry a copy of it with you (just in case), some cash and perhaps your mobile phone and camera.

We are heading over in December for our first visit and also asked for help but got told to look at the FAQ - I have copied a link for you for the most helpful post in that section:


I also love this web site for ideas:


Have a great NY, we leave just before NY to go to Krabi but I am sure that KL will be awesome!
