Once you visit Kuala Lumpur, you will fall in love with the capital city of Malaysia. This city has a lot to offer to the world. Taking a cab is the preferred way to travel around the city because of cheap taxi rates. However, if you hate traffic, then Malaysia’s city train is recommended.
The best place to start exploring Kuala Lumpur is to get to the top of the Petronas Tower early in the morning. Buy your ticket the day before you go because they only sell limited number of tickets per day. If you didn’t catch the elevator up to the top of the tower, visit the lovely ambiance of Kuala Lumpur’s Lake Garden. If you are a big fan of Lego, head early to Johor Bahru, which is a four hour drive from KL to see Legoland.
