The Best Sightseeing Spots in Kuala Lumpur

  • The Petronas Twin Towers

Ask your friendly local host to bring you to this iconic landmark that merits a visit and photo opportunity for any first-time visitor. This amazing Kuala Lumpur sightseeing experience not only includes the sleek structure standing at 88 storeys high and joined by a sky bridge, but at the foot of the towers is the Suria KLCC Shopping Mall, which hosts an array of international brands, galleries, restaurants, a concert hall, and one massive Aquarium.

  • Menara KL Tower

This tower is an important architectural marker and boasts spectacular views of the city despite being outshone by the Petronas Twin Towers. And unlike the twin towers, the top of Menara KL is actually accessible to the public. Containing a revolving restaurant and an interior observation deck at 276m, the tower provides an unforgettable Kuala Lumpur sightseeing experience.

  • Chinatown like a local

This might not be the usual sightseeing spot in Kuala Lumpur, but it’s definitely something you have to enjoy. Your private guide will accompany you throughout the journey and immerse you deeply in the oriental culture, heritage and history of the Chinese community in Malaysia. You can find all sorts of things in the area, from Chinese herbs to imitation goods, Chinatown is a bargain hunter’s paradise that seems to never sleep. Your host will also help you bargain the best prices for anything you want to buy around there. Don’t forget to add it on your list of things to do in Kuala Lumpur.

Red Light District Tour with a Local

Willem was very knowledgeable. The tour through the red light district was full of history and interesting locations that we would have never found on our own.

Prado Museum Private Tour with Ticket Included!

Nuestra visita al Prado fue fantástica. Marieta nos contó de forma muy amena las obras más importantes de Velázquez, Goya y el Bosco. Aprendimos muchas cosas de estos pintores y de la época histórica en la que se hayaban inmersos. Gracias a Marieta volveríamos otra vez a repetir esta actividad, sin dudarlo.

Amsterdam Must-Do Family Tour

Louke was great. She kept the kids interested with a challenge throughout the walk and gave us tips for an awesome lunch and things to do in our short stay. She was energetic and interesting.

  • Batu Caves differently

Accompany your host to the Batu Caves temple complex to enjoy the sight of one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India. Dedicated to Lord Murugan, it is the focal point of Hindu festival of Thaipusam in Malaysia. Come during late January to witness the amazing festival which attracts thousands of devotees and an unforgettable unique procession ceremony. Sightseeing the temple complex is still enjoyable any other time of the year, and you'll have the option of climbing it's 272 steps. Your host will make sure you have a truly unique experience by sharing stories with you and great insights on the place, many of which are never told to usual tourists.

  • Sultan Abdul Samad Building

One's quest of sightseeing in Kuala Lumpur will never be complete without this most historical significant building in the city. Set nearby Merdeka Square, the building currently houses the offices of the Ministry of Information, Communications and Culture. The century old building bared witness to Malaysia's moment of independence and to this day is frequently used as the backdrop for Malaysia’s annual Independence Day parades. Your local guide will be more than happy to share with you the story of Malaysia's struggle for independence.
