Oh dear, there is so much to do and so many hotels!

The best help we can offer really is to suggest you research, yes doing it yourself! Surprising I know. But not that radical really, and may actually answer many of your basic questions and you can then figure out a plan.

[please forgive my cut and paste] What we normally suggest as the best thing is to read the FAQs about Kuala Lumpur [ on the right of the Kuala Lumpur forum page --->>>>. Everyone forgets or misses the Top or Frequently Asked Questions/FAQs [especially if using smart phone / tablets / tablets], which are packed with lots of really great information about lots of really useful information!! If you are accessing TA via the smart phone / tablet app’ you won’t see the FAQs in the normal app view on your phone, so suggest that you view the app it as full site mode / desk top view; or just use a laptop or pc to enjoy the information that has been collected. The Top Questions / FAQs ] but FAQ KL Popular Sights and perhaps FAQ KL Day Trips / FAQ Elephant Sanctuary / FAQ Fire flies are worth reading.

Also look at the green banner at the top of this page and check out the ‘Travel Guide’ [in the MORE tab] and ‘Things To Do’ tab [ tripadvisor.co.uk/Attractions-g298570-Activi… ] which list lots of pointers of what to see and where to go as well as other information like restaurants, and Hotels tripadvisor.co.uk/Tourism-g298569-Wilayah_Pe… .

Where is stay is personal too, dependant on your budget and requirements . . Best area to stay is Bukit Bintang, lots of hotels in that area, again look at the Hotels tab [ tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotels-g293951-Malaysia-Ho… plus http://www.hotelscombined.com/ is a good comparison site. ]

What to see and do is very much a personal choice, but as a very simple guide the most popular sights for a 2-4 day stay are normally:

Petronas Towers - tours http://www.petronastwintowers.com.my/ or look at them from KLCC park where you can also watch the Lake Symphony’s dancing fountains which ‘perform’ daily from 12noon to 2pm, and then again from 6pm to 11pm, or 10am to midnight at the weekend; or head up to the Traders hotel for the view or a drink and snack (need to book in the evening) shangri-la.com/en/… and the bar / restaurants at Marinis 57 http://www.marinis57.com/bar.php There is also Suria KLCC mall under the towers, and AvenueK an upmarket mall just over the road.

A short walk along Jalan Ampang (or from KLCC to Dang Wangi station) is KL Menara [Tower] – views from observation deck http://menarakl.com.my/index.cfm, as well some of KL original rain forest and a few other tourist things, or afternoon tea / dinner buffet http://www.kltower.com.my/index.cfm?sc=dining or http://www.atmosphere360.com.my/

Bukit Bintang is a 15min walk using the covered a/c walk way from Suria KLCC / KL Convention Centre directly to beside the Pavilion Mall or 20 min walk from the base of KL Menara, or a 5min ride on the monorail from , there are Bukit Nanas. There are around 10malls in and around Bukit Bintang including Pavilion, Sungei Wang, Fahrenheit 88, Lot 10, Imbi Plaza, Times Square [includes a theme park] Starhill Gallery and so much other shopping and eating with Jalan Alor / Changkat Bukit Bintang just around the corner [evening eating street no to be missed, bars and entertainment],

from where you can always walk or monorail to . .

Chinatown / Petaling Street Market [shopping, sights, food, walking tours and the ever popular night market], from there you can walk to Central Market [which sells many popular tourist trinkets and some good food] and is a short walking distance to Merdaka Square [historical sights].

Then walk on to Little India [sights and some shopping]

Batu Caves is just out of town and on the public transport routing. The easiest way to get to Batu Caves is probably a taxi at around 50-100myr each way depending on the type of taxi you get, but you can get there by monorail and then train. Batu Caves station on the Sentul / Klang KTM line, will probably take 2-3x in time but will be a fraction of the cost. If you find nearest station to your starting point, then find Batu Caves ktmkomuter.com.my/station_maps/routemap/kl-t… http://klcityguide.my/kuala-lumpur-train-map/ http://www.myrapid.com.my/ http://www.ktmkomuter.com.my/index.php

Perdana Botanical Garden / Tun Abdul Razak Heritage Park / Lake Gardens [not far from KL Sentral station] http://www.klbotanicalgarden.gov.my/index.php - Bird park [don’t expect anything like the one in Singapore] / Butterfly Park / Orchid Garden / National Mosque / Islamic Art Museum / Carcosa Seri Negara for Afternoon Tea; Segway http://segkl.com/ are all easy to get to and just a taxi from KL Sentral Station

Royal Selangor Pewter Visitor Centre is a 20mins taxi ride out of town or Putra line to Wangsa Maju station, http://visitorcentre.royalselangor.com/vc/. Craft Complex, Jalan Conlay is not far from Bukit Bintang, and Jadi Batik Gallery is near the Craft Complex http://malaysiancraft.com/index.cfm or http://mybatik.org.my/ If you fancy something else then there is the Forest Reserve Institute of Malaysia (FRIM) http://www.frim.gov.my/?page_id=543, a very interesting food tour http://www.foodtourmalaysia.com/, Lazat Cookery course http://www.malaysia-klcookingclass.com/ or http://www.simplyenak.com/, see some local country side with http://openskyunlimited.com/v1.0/ or maybe the Elephant Sanctuary, Fireflies at Selangor, day trip to Malacca to see the heritage buildings [see FAQs -->> ], or the Chocolate factory or Sunway Lagoon theme park,

Malaysia Tourism Centre (MaTiC) http://www.matic.gov.my/ is between the Petronas Towers and the KL Menara {Tower} on Jalan Ampang, useful stop for information, food, coffee, ATM, tours etc. It is also on the Hop on Hop off bus route http://www.myhoponhopoff.com/ and the base of Saloma Cultural Theatre Restaurant http://www.saloma.com.my/ http://visit-to-kl.com/

http://mappery.com/Kuala-Lumpur-Tourist-Map a half decent map is a must when planning, tourism.gov.my/en/…E-Brochures has some great leaflets with maps, especially the one called Kuala Lumpur Malaysia's Dazzling Capital City …tourism.gov.my/images/Maps%20of%20Malaysia/…


The monorail and train is a really easy and cheap way to get about and many stops are near the popular sights or connections to the trains or buses http://klcityguide.my/kuala-lumpur-train-map/ ktmkomuter.com.my/station_maps/routemap/kl-t… http://klcityguide.my/kuala-lumpur-train-map/ http://www.myrapid.com.my/ http://www.ktmkomuter.com.my/index.php

There is a ‘free’ bus doing the sights http://www.gokl.com.my/getting_around and malaysiafreebies.com/go-kl-city-bus-free-tra… is a useful link, plus they do have a facebook if you search GO KL (Kuala Lumpur City Bus)

There is also a hop on hop off tourist bus that covers most of the sights, you pay for a 24 hour or 48 hour pass http://www.myhoponhopoff.com/

virtualtourist.com/travel/Asia/Malaysia/Wila… …malaysia-asia.my/2011/09/12-free-things-to-… and tripadvisor.co.uk/Travel_Guide-g298570-Kuala… are also worth having a read of.

Great info from TM. Plenty for you to read and start your research with.

As we arent Travel agents and are only volunteers we dont set up intineraries.

Research come up with a basic plan and we can help you fine tune this.

Hotels Ive stayed at and enjoyed are Park Royal, Novotel and Swiss Garden Residences.

Batu caves is good. Free admission for main cave. Some smaller caves which charge too much. Take the train. Port Klang Line. Costs 1 or 2 ringit one way and is fast. Modern and aircon. Short walk from station. Have done the bus and this is better. Public transit in Kuala Lumpur is cheap and efficient. Gokl is free. I don't recommend taking taxis long distance due to big price difference. City is easy to walk.

Putrajaya is a good day trip. Train goes there. Take public bus from station to get to main tourist area and government buildings. Do research online or go to tourist office in Kuala Lumpur to find where to get off the bus and see maps.

There's another nice place to go. From KL to Bukit Tinggi is about 45 minutes.

there's a theme attraction called Colmar Tropicale - a replica building like the one in france.

Colmar Tropicale Berjaya Hills.

If you like taking photo with nice bulding - this is the best to go :)
