Are you currently feeling the quarantine blues? You would love to travel and take a break but there are so many ‘what-ifs’ weighing you down? Well, worry not as we have the answer for you!
Fully utilise your weekend by minimising on travel time and maximising the fun-factor with all these great activities (and foods) that can be done in and around Kuala Lumpur. There is so much to do in KL and you don’t have to travel very far from one spot to another to experience everything the city has to offer. Let’s go!
Start off your Cuti-Cuti Kuala Lumpur trip with a hearty and comforting plate of Nasi Lemak from the 70-year old family-run Nasi Lemak joint, Nasi Lemak Tanglin. The aromatic nasi lemak with their famous to-die-for sweet and spicy sambal have been raved by the locals over the years as the best in KL and trust us when we say that they are ABSOLUTELY right! We bet you are smacking your lips just reading about this!
Take your nasi lemak experience to another level by adding in Sambal Sotong and crispy Ayam Goreng.
If you’re visiting inbound, purchase the KLIA Ekspres + GoCar Package to settle your Return airport transfer and also your transport to Tanglin. Pick your GoCar when you arrive at KL Sentral and it’s just 6 minutes away via Jalan Damansara.
Next stop on the list – Pasar Chow Kit. This is not your ordinary pasar, okay. Pasar Chow Kit is a truly Malaysian landmark. You can find different things while you are there from wet goods, fruits and even some local snacks. What makes this place special is the community feel and the old school design of the market structure that is reminiscent of the good ole days!
If you found yourself craving for lemang outside of Raya time, chup! We have Lemang Daun Lerek. You can get your lemang craving fixed anytime of the year here. You get to choose your lemang based on the size and to top it off, they even have a plethora of rendang and side dishes to up the ante on your lemang feast. YUMMY!
You can get here by purchasing the airport transfer with the KLIA Ekspres + GoCar Package. Lemang Daun Lerek is only 22 minutes away from KL Sentral if you use Jalan Gombak/Route 68.
Next up on your Cuti-cuti Kuala Lumpur list should be Batu Caves. Batu Caves is famous for its colourful 272 flight of stairs. It is worth it climbing up the stairs as you get to see the whole compound of the temple from the top. Why not challenge your travel buddy and see who reaches the peak first? Best way to burn all the food you’ve munched on along the way and after this ‘workout’ you can continue food hunting! Yay!
Take our train from the airport to KL Sentral. From here, you can travel to Batu Caves by using KTM.
Up next – Thean Hou Temple which is also known as Temple of the Goddess of Heaven. First opened in 1989, the temple is set on top of a hill which offers you a great panoramic view of the city. The contemporary architectural style and traditional designs are definitely instagram-worthy!
Take the KLIA Ekspres to KL Sentral. Thean Hou Temple is just a short GoCar ride away from KL Sentral!
Then, there is our city’s pride – Dataran Merdeka. It is one of the most important landmarks in the history of Malaysia. This is a great place for you to fully immerse yourself in Malaysia’s history and feel proud of where we have become today.
Get to Dataran Merdeka by using your KL TravelPass and take the LRT from KL Sentral to Masjid Jamek. Then it’s only a 6 minutes walk to Dataran Merdeka!
