  • Visit the Loch Ness monster of Malaysia

  • Fly above water like a superhero

Now who says you can’t fly above water like a superhero? Flyboard Malaysia is the only purveyor of this fun and extreme sport operating at Marina Putrajaya, located in the federal administrative capital Putrajaya. Ask your local guide to tell you more about this. It’s all within driving distance.
With nozzles attached to your feet, Flyboard Malaysia says within 20 minutes you will be able to maneuver the personal watercraft – yep, that’s what it’s called. Your local guide will be able to set you up with a few sessions and help you get the best prices for this unique experience.

  • Tour KL in a chopper

Grandmother's Kitchen Secrets

It was a completely different cooking class to any other we have done in Asia. So tailor made and personal. We were able to make two different styles of curries and felt we have left with a lot of knowledge. Fantastic host, extremely friendly and welcoming. Thank you for a lovely afternoon. Leah 😁

The Amazing 7 Wonders of KL Tour

Mohd is very friendly, fun and easy to get along with. He definitely knows a lot about the city and is excellent in keeping his guest amused. Although his tour is well thought and planned but he is absolutely flexible and willing to customise it based on your preferencs.
Cannot recommend him enough!

  • Join an “open house”

An open house, or rumah terbuka in Malay, is a Malaysian concept where during festivities houses are open to families and friends and strangers to partake of meals and celebrations. Your local guide will be able to coordinate this for you. Here’s a pro tip: ask your local guide to also set you up with a local costume that matches the festivity.
What if you are visiting Kuala Lumpur on a regular day? Well, your local guide will be able to coordinate such an event with a Malaysian family. This is the best way to get to know the country and its culture.

  • Jungle trekking tree to tree

Malaysia is home to some of the world’s oldest forests. Getting to know its unique flora and fauna is must and you don’t have to go far to do this. Ask your local guide about Skytrex Adventures. It’s a tree-to-tree trek high up above the ground.
There are a few ways you can move around – glide, dangle, swing, or ‘fly’ – and these courses are offered to enthusiasts of any skill level. All you need is plenty of gusto and not be afraid of heights. It’s an unusual thing to do in Kuala Lumpur but it’s safe and supervised and hands down the best way to get to know the country’s green lung. Just remember to stay hydrated – Malaysia is humid after all.

  • Eat unique local food

Malaysia is a food haven. You’ll find all types of delicacies everywhere, from the street to the shopping mall. As it is a melting pot of cultures, various cuisine are on offer. But it also home to some unique and exotic ingredients.
Your local guide will show you what these are and will bring you around for a food tour of sorts. Some dishes or ingredients may not appeal to your taste buds, some would even turn you off by their pungent aromas, but they are must-tries. Some recommendations are sup torpedo or bull’s penis soup, the durian and stinky tofu. Yep, one of the unusual things to do in Kuala Lumpur and you don’t need to travel far to get these.
