Customer Reviews

A Lai Po Heen customer says this:

“Great to be back at The Mandarin. Consistently one of the best Chinese restaurants on the planet.

I’ve been visiting for many years but January was the first time my wife had experienced it. Great to watch the chef’s in full making their creations with multiple woks in action. Menu is excellent and all dishes are top drawer. Black cod is superb but the cubed beef tenderloin is melt in the mouth. I have it every time.

The service is superb, staff are welcoming and interested, and on this occasion a big thanks to Kai Chic Chan for making it a truly memorable evening.

It’s not very expensive at all by UK standards and wine list is excellent. I’d recommend it for lunch or dinner without question. Location of the hotel is ideal so one can follow dinner with some excellent bars nearby. The menu is extensive so well worth checking out beforehand via the Mandarin website.”

And another one says this:

“We love the food here. We were served by KC and Clayton. They were very friendly. You must try the Peking Duck. It’s a-two-course meal. You can choose how the duck is done for the second course. Either chopped, or with egg noodles, or fried with rice.”

10 Best Chinese Restaurants in Kuala Lumpur


Chinese restaurants in Kuala Lumpur can be found just about everywhere, from five-star hotels and resorts, to unassuming streets and residential neighbourhoods. The unique appeal of Chinese food is that there are countless way of preparing a staple ingredient such as rice and noodles. For example, a serving of egg noodles can be served in a simple broth (pork noodle soup), stir-fried in soy sauce and prawns (char kuey teow), or drizzled in dark soya sauce and topped barbecued pork and dumplings (wanton mee).

Traditional Chinese food is mild in taste, but in Malaysia, flavours tend to be robust and spicy due to the heavy influence of Indian and Malay cooking techniques. Malaysia is also a predominantly Muslim nation, so there are restaurants that serve pork-free alternatives using chicken, beef, fish and venison. From decades-old hawker stalls and atmospheric kopitiams to award-winning restaurants and halal-friendly cafes, read on for our list of the most popular places in KL for Chinese food.

Yut Kee Restaurant

Jalan Dang Wangi

Yut Kee Restaurant started out along Jalan Dang Wangi in 1928, but after over 80 years in its original location, it sought a new home along Jalan Kamunting in 2014.

The western and Chinese food served is a fantastic as ever – expect to encounter a menu of RM5.50++ char siew (barbecued pork) fried rice, roti bakar and pork buns (RM7.50++). A must try here is its Hainanese pork and chicken chops (RM10++) which comes with brown sauce boiled with carrot, peas and corn, as well as a side serving of potato wedges.

If you look around the other tables you will most probably spot a bucket on most tables; they are known for their Bucket Chicken which is essentially steamed village chicken with premium soy sauce, sesame oil and Chinese herbs that enhance the flavours of the chicken.

6. Lala Chong – Kayu Ara

With a name like that, it is no surprise what they are famous for. Of course it is lala and their siong tong lala (Clams in superior broth) is truly well done. The clams are plump and juicy and the broth is to-die-for. Besides the lala, you should also try out their superior tofu soup which is a play on sharksfin soup but is instead filled with diced seafood and tofu. This dish is shark AND tummy friendly.

Seafood is definitely the strongpoint of this restaurant so don’t miss out on their butter crabs which has this luscious sauce which you will mop up with their crispy on the outside but soft on the inside mantau. This place used to be in Subang but despite the shift in venue, it has not loss the hordes of customers that flock to this place which is a sure sign of good food.

8. De Hunan – Kuchai Lama and Puchong

 

Source 

Now for something different this Chinese New Year, how about trying out some Hunan Food. Hunan is a province in China that is known for their spicy style of cooking, but don’t mistake it with the Szechuan style, which is usually oilier and peppercorn-heavy. Hunan food is dryer and heavier with a combination of fresh and dry chili that still packs a punch. The spiciness definitely starts from the get go as their choices of mini cold starters are a spicy introduction to what has to come.

Source

Source

Their Steam Fish with Spicy Sauce is highly recommended. You can opt for the whole fish (head and body) or fish slices. Both are good because the fish is always fresh and tender. Another must try is their stir fried cabbage with fried pork belly and chili. This vegetable dish is so sinfully good but it is not a healthy dish as you would expect of a vegetable dish. They serve really good pork, lamb and even frog leg dishes. I definitely recommended this place if you’re looking for something different.

Other dishes worth mentioning is their salted egg yolk crispy fish skin,crispy shredded duck, braised salted fish pork belly claypot and their string beans fried with olive leaves.

Overseas is a chain restaurant having outlets all over Klang Valley however their most popular outlet is definitely the one in Imbi. The food there seems to be better than the rest. Famously known for their Barbeque Pork which has just the right ratio of lean meat to fat. The caramelization on the outside of the pork is just sheer bliss as it melts in your mouth. It is often sold out very early in the evening so please pre-order the barbeque pork.

Another dish often ordered during CNY is their Lap Mei Fan (waxed meat claypot rice) which comes with a generous selection of various cuts of waxed meat to be mixed in with the rice laced with a black sauce concoction. Don’t miss their extraordinary classic food that includes a few reinventions.

Chinatown Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia is the true embodiment of Asia, with its extraordinary cultural and multinational diversity. Here, like a multi-colored mosaic, the ancient civilizations of Asia are mixed – Chinese, Indian and Malay. Local aborigines Ibans of Sarawak and Sabah and Kadazandusuns also contribute to this variety of colors.
In Kuala Lumpur, representatives of the main peoples inhabiting the country live in the national regions: Chinatown – Chinatown, Malay village – Kampong Baru and Little India – Brickfields.Let’s get to know each of them better.

Jalan Petaling Street is a shopping arcade where you can not only buy manufactured goods, but also taste Chinese cuisine. Many restaurants are open until the morning, unlike other areas of Kuala Lumpur. It is also one of the few places in town that sells roasted chestnuts, which one of the site’s authors adores.

The street at the beginning and at the end has arches at the entrance, made in the Chinese style. Since 2003, it has been covered with an awning, which allows you to walk here even in the rain. Several Chinese temples can be found in the side streets. Nearby is the Indian temple Sri Mahamariamman.

Hotels in Chinatown are perhaps the cheapest in Kuala Lumpur. Here you can find a place in a hostel for 15 ringgit ($ 5) or a private room for 25 ringgit. But be prepared for the fact that the noise under the windows will interfere with you day and night.And this area cannot be called clean.

Generally worth a visit in Kuala Lumpur

Why is Kuala Lumpur so attractive for tourists? There are many interesting places in the city of Kuala Lumpur that are worth visiting: these are Batu Caves, Central Park, Petronas Towers, Oceanarium, Botanical Garden and much, much more.

Unfortunately, there may not be enough time for everything. Therefore, it is very important to properly allocate time and build a route, depending on your wishes.

What you can do in one day

In one day we were able to visit the Oceanarium, walk through the Central Park and appreciate the scale of the Petronas Towers.It is advisable to visit the city center not only during the day, but also in the evening. In the evening, a completely different picture will unfold before you. The towers, and all high-rise buildings, are illuminated with bright colors, so the center of Kuala Lumpur at this time looks just magical! There is a musical fountain on the territory of Central Park, which attracts many visitors at nightfall. Those who want to appreciate this spectacle sit on benches or right on the steps leading from the fountain to the shopping center. Music, mesmerizing colored iridescent streams of water against the backdrop of high-rise buildings painted with backlighting is amazing and unforgettable! We were lucky to see all this also against the backdrop of an impending thunderstorm with flashes of lightning!

In search of oriental flavor

One of the attractions of Kuala Lumpur is Chinatown, or as it is also called Chinatown.We decided to definitely visit it to appreciate all the delights of the oriental flavor. Chinatown is located on Petaling strit in the heart of the city next to the Pudu sentral bus station, where buses from the airport arrive. Therefore, we chose a hotel in the area.

Hotel and surroundings

Ancasa Express @ Pudu by Ancasa Hotels & Resorts is located directly above the Pudu sentral bus station. We arrived late in the evening and thought that we would not have to look for a hotel at night in an unfamiliar city.It turned out that the buses did not arrive at the bus station, but dropped off passengers at a public transport stop about five hundred meters away. It turned out that the bus station itself practically does not function and it will not be possible to leave for other regions of Malaysia. On the way back, we also got to the airport by bus. It should be borne in mind that during rush hours in Kuala Lumpur there are often traffic jams. Therefore, if you need to go to the airport, then you need to leave in advance. We had to wait for the bus, which was stuck in a traffic jam somewhere, for about an hour and a half, although the departure schedule is every 30 minutes.

When booking the hotel requested a room on the upper floors overlooking the Menara Tower. The Menara Tower is also one of the landmarks of the city of Kuala Lumpur. It was the tallest building in the city for a long time (until the Petronas Towers were built). In the evening, it is beautifully illuminated, so the view from the window of our room (we lived on the eleventh floor) was excellent!

It rained heavily at night. So it was pretty stuffy in the morning, but it couldn’t stop us on our way to Chinatown.We walked 500-600 meters to Petaling strit and examined the surroundings. I was struck by the number of vehicles, especially motorcycles and scooters, because of which the streets are quite noisy. Overhead there is a line of the surface metro, along which trains rush at a height of ten meters. Many buildings in Kuala Lumpur, due to frequent rains and high humidity, are covered with gray stains.

Where is Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur and how to get there

Chinatown on the map of Kuala Lumpur

The easiest way to get to Chinatown is by subway LRT (pink line Kelana Jaya) to Pasar Seni station, or by Grab-taxi – choose the destination Central Market or Petaling street.If you are going to start your walk from the Central Market, then go left from the metro, past the TravelLodge hotel. After that, you will see the blue market building across the road, and on the right – the interlacing of the tubular arches of the Kasturi Walk gallery.

Council We Drove-We Know.
Pasar Seni Metro Station can also be reached from Pavilion Shopping Center by the free GoKL bus (purple line).

You can get to Chinatown directly from the KLIA airport – take the bus next to the Pudu Sentral Bus Terminal.

Central Market – Indoor Central Market in Chinatown

In Chinatown, there is not only a Chinese street market, but also an indoor shopping center called Central Market. If you walk down the street, look for a blue building. In this photo, the Central Market is located on the left:

Brickfields – Little India

The next ethnic quarter of Kuala Lumpur – one of the most colorful, picturesque and chaotic – is Brickfields or Little India.
It will not be difficult to get here, in Brickfield there is the KL Central station, where express trains come from the airport and connect all metro and suburban train lines.
The history of the emergence of the Indian quarter in the Malaysian capital is unusual, it was founded by Yap Kuan Seng, a Chinese by nationality. At the end of the 19th century, an enterprising captain realized that Kuala Lumpur, under construction, would need a huge amount of building materials – bricks, and built a brick factory next to a clay quarry.In honor of this plant, the area was named Brickfields (brick – brick, brick; fields – English fields). British colonialists mining tin in Malaysia in 1886 began to build a railway linking the port of Kelang with Kuala Lumpur. The railway depot was located in Brickfields, and now the railway depot is today’s KL Central station. To work on the construction and maintenance of the railway, the British invited Indians, not only engineers, mechanics, but also workers. Housing for them was built right next door, some of these houses have survived on Rosario Street.

After the proclamation of the independence of Malaysia, the Indians, who lived here for more than one generation, received citizenship and remained to live in Brickfields, creating from it Little India.
Little India is practically near the center of old Kuala Lumpur , all the main attractions are very close: Independence Square, English Club, British Administration Building.
Getting to Brickfields, it is as if you are transported to India – the inhabitants of the area in national clothes, Indian music playing from restaurants and houses, movie posters with Bollywood stars, the intoxicating aroma of oils, sticks and spices, Hindu symbols in the design.Everything from putu stickers and bracelets to saris are available at the market and in shops. The number of national dress ateliers and beauty salons, where you can paint the body with henna, is striking. There are many massage parlors on Jalan Tebing Street, where members of the Kuala Lumpur Association of the Blind work. The special technique and flair of the blind masseurs contribute to amazing results in the treatment. The cost of a massage session varies from 30 to 50 ringgit.

Only in Brickfields you can taste real rice on a banana leaf, in modest restaurants with a small advertising sign.A banana leaf serves as a plate, white rice is placed on it, curry is poured over it, and meat with vegetables. Don’t forget to enjoy some extraordinary Indian desserts, be sure to try the curry roti canai and the famous masala tea.

More than any other neighborhood in the capital, this bustling, vibrant college and school district has heroes to be remembered and proud of.
The richest man in Malaysia and one of the three richest people in Southeast Asia, Ananda Krishnan, was born and raised in Brickfields.The construction of the Petronas Twin Towers, a symbol of Malaysia, was his idea. And, who became the first Asian banker during colonization, the founder of the “Oriental Bank” Bastianpilla Paul Nicholas is also a native of Little India.

Local residents call their area the Divine Land – “Divine Land”, this is due to the huge number of religious sites of various denominations peacefully existing in the neighborhood. Temples, pagodas, churches – the variety of architectural styles and religions is striking.Here is the Catholic Chinese Church of the Holy Rosary, the Lutheran Evangelical Church, the Maha Vihara Buddhist temple, the Sri Lankan or Ceylon temple of Sri Kandaswami, many Hindu temples, and the only Orthodox church in the country. The church belongs to the Syrian Copts, the services are conducted in two languages, Malay and English, by Indian priests, and once a month comes from Singapore, a Greek Orthodox priest, an Englishman by nationality.
An incredible Brickfields experience can be gained by visiting the city in October during the Deepavali (Diwali) Indian Light Festival – Indian New Year.

Petaling Street – the famous Chinese market in Kuala Lumpur

The famous shopping street Petaling street is the main tourist artery of Chinatown. It is here that counterfeit watches, bags and other “branded” things are sold. This is essentially a crazy Chinese street market that opens in the late afternoon.So you need to come here after lunch, when numerous merchants begin to display their “treasures”.

Entrance to the famous Petaling Street in Chinatown

Kampong Bahru – Malay village in the center of the capital

And finally, Kampong Baru in the center of the capital of Malaysia, a few minutes from the Petronas Towers. See the life of the indigenous people, enjoy the silence and special charm of the Malay village, taste national cuisine.
Translated from Malay, Kampong Baru is a new village.The land on which it is located is considered the most expensive in the city, real estate companies in Kuala Lumpur have offered fabulous money, but local elders refuse all tempting offers. The cost of the site is about $ 1.4 billion. The settlement was founded in 1880, and today it unites 7 villages on an area of ​​100 hectares. At the beginning of the 20th century, the British colonialists, in order to preserve the Malay rustic style in the city, a special settlement.

According to the first census in 1928, Kampong Bahru had 544 houses and 2,600 residents.
For a century, the mixing of urban and rural cultures practically did not occur, wooden houses on stilts, coconut palms, jasmine and banana trees growing between them, but all roads are asphalted. This is not a tourist attraction, but a typical residential Malay area.
In the center there is a street with restaurants that attract most of the tourists here. In the morning, visitors will be offered a traditional Malay breakfast – nasi lemak, and at lunchtime and in the evening I recommend trying nasi padang – a rice dish and many additives to it, Rojak – a sweet fruit and vegetable salad, Campur nasi (literally “mixed rice”), Rendang beef , Sambal, Murtabak with meat.And also Mee Bandung Muar – a mixture of dried shrimp, dried chili, sweet potatoes, tofu, beef and other ingredients, or Mee Rebus – like a yellow noodle soup served with a very varied beef and sweet potato gravy, and it’s a sweet dish compared to a spicy one. Mi Bandung. Drinks include Sirap Bandung (pink syrup with condensed milk) and watermelon juice.

On Saturday evening from 6 pm to Sunday morning in the Malay village – the night market – Pasar Malam, where you can buy a variety of national souvenirs, clothing, fabrics, jewelry, products and dishes of Malay cuisine.
During Ramadan at Kampong Baru is the largest Ramadan bazaar in the metropolis. The most convenient way to get to the Malay Village is from the Kampung Baru LRT metro station or from the Medan Tuanku monorail station.

Extraordinary and multinational Malaysia awaits you!

Chan She Shu Yuen Temple Museum

Temple of Association Chan She Shu Yuen

This is one of the largest and oldest surviving Buddhist temples in Malaysia.Inside the main temple are columns with scenes of golden warriors fighting lions, dragons, and other mythical creatures. Since the architecture of the temple is extremely rare outside of China in such a well-preserved state, the Malaysian government has declared the building a protected monument of national importance.

Interestingly, this is not just a Buddhist temple, but a kind of club, an association of clans from South China – for people with the same surname, in this case “Chan” and includes “Tang” and “Chen”, whose names are written using the same and the same Chinese characters.This makes it a very large clan! The association helped new immigrants settle, find work and settle in Malaysia.

Chan She Shu Yuen Temple is not very popular with tourists, so sometimes you can wander here all alone. Nice place. Located here. The entrance is free.

Small Guan Yin Temple

Guan Yin Temple is at the end of Chinatown

A small and cozy Guan Yin temple is located on the outskirts of Chinatown, on a hill next to the Maharajalela monorail station, here.People come here to see the three golden Chinese Buddhist statues inside and listen to beautiful prayers (from 12-30 to 13-45). When planning a route through Chinatown, you can put this place at the very end of the walk.

Chinatown is a great place to stay cheap in Kuala Lumpur

If your budget does not allow you to stay in one of the hotels overlooking the Petronas Towers, then the cheapest accommodation can be found around Petaling Street. There are very low prices for hotels and many hostels. It is easy to find a hostel for 10-15 euros, but comfort in such a hostel will not be enough.It is better to add a little and still choose a more comfortable hotel. From decent and inexpensive I can recommend the hotel with the fashionable name “The 5 Elements Hotel Chinatown”.

Hotel “5th Element” in Chinatown Kuala Lumpur

Nice rooms, friendly staff, the hotel has a good location – close to the entire Chinatown, as well as within walking distance of Pudu Sentral bus station and Pasar Seni metro station. Of the minuses: in the evening it is noisy around the hotel.

But what I liked the most is the stylish Mingle @ Chinatown Hostel – a very atmospheric place – cheap but quite comfortable for solo travelers.However, there are double rooms with their own bathroom. Therefore, it is no worse than a hotel, and the price is less than 10 euros per person!

At Mingle Hostel @Chinatown

There is a great rooftop bar. At the reception, staff can call a Grab taxi (the cheapest in town).

Chinatown, right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, is an area that never sleeps and looks much more colorful and noisy than its modern and overly glamorous neighbors – KLCC and Bukit Bintang. Originally from Petaling Street, Chinatown, also known as ‘Chi Chong Kai’ (Starch Factory Street), has its historical roots in a tapioca flour company.Deeply entrenched in Eastern culture, heritage and history, Chinatown is undoubtedly one of the most popular tourist destinations in Malaysia.

Chinatown is also a paradise for famous sale patrons, and the point where you can find all kinds of goods, from Chinese medicinal herbs to artful imitations. At night, the main stage of Petaling Street turns into a lively and vibrant evening (night) market, filled with hundreds of booths offering all kinds of goods on the cheap, and the most pleasant moment is that you can decently bargain here, buying a good thing for a pittance, because local trade is a kind of special way of life.

What to see in Kuala Lumpur: top attractions

Brilliant Kuala Lumpur is like a hundred cities in one.This is a high-tech metropolis with magnificent high-rises and driverless trains – and a tropical paradise with exotic fruits and gardens of whimsical butterflies. “India” with colorful temples and grandiose caves of Batu – and “China” with red lanterns and aromatic soups. An oriental fairy tale with bizarre ornaments – and a European idyll of a French village. We tell you what to see and try in Kuala Lumpur to see all the facets of the capital of Malaysia.

Take a picture of Petronas

88-storey Petronas Twin Towers for Kuala Lumpur – like the creation of the Eiffel for Paris: the center of attraction for tourists and the permanent symbol of the city.The impressive buildings make it easy to spend an entire day: take a classic selfie between two towers, buy craft paper postcards and delicious ice cream at Suria KLCC shopping mall inside Petronas, check out Gallery Petronas and don’t miss the Petrosains science center, where you can run tornadoes and visit in zero gravity.

A spectacular view of Kuala Lumpur opens up from the bridge between the Petronas Towers and from their upper floors. You can buy tickets for the excursion at the ticket office on the spot, but it is safer to do it in advance on the website: there are always a lot of people who want to take a photo from the height of Petronas.

A walk in the park will help you to put your impressions in your head. Around the towers is a spacious KLCC: during the day, children frolic in the mini-pool, adults relax in the shade overlooking the towers, and in the evening everyone admires the fountain show and elegant lighting.

When is the best time to go to Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur is located close to the equator and the weather in the city is typical of the tropics all year round.The Malaysian capital is hot and humid, with a rainy season in March and April.

The best time to visit Kuala Lumpur is from May to July and from December to February when the humidity is slightly lower than usual.

Admire the city from the TV Tower

The best view of the famous Petronas and the whole of Kuala Lumpur opens from the Menara TV Tower (KL Tower). The minimum program here is to climb to the closed observation deck, but the most spectacular panoramas are visible from the open Sky Deck.How to take a photo of Kuala Lumpur from a height of a hundred floors, go to tickle your nerves in a panoramic cube with a transparent Sky Box floor: the whole world will literally be at your feet!

If your knees are already giving way from beauty and adrenaline, take a cocktail in the panoramic Atmosphere 360 ​​restaurant or arrange zootherapy in the small petting zoo KL Tower Mini Zoo. As you are ready for new adventures, walk the suspension bridges of the KL Forest Ecopark and experience life from a new angle in the Upside Down House.

Tickle your nerves: the scariest lookouts, bridges and trails in the world

A nice discount and skip-the-line access to the attractions of Kuala Lumpur are provided by the Klook service. For example, you can save a couple of dollars on every ticket to the Menara view.

Ride the train without a driver

In Kuala Lumpur, the future has already arrived. If you are not convinced by the skyscrapers, go down the metro: trains run here on schedule and without drivers.Get into the first carriage and take a seat by the windshield. Most of the time the train travels on the ground, and this is a great opportunity to see the city and take unusual photos from the position of the train driver.

The most unusual and beautiful metro in the world

Live in Condo

Stylish apartments, rooftop infinity pool, gym and skyscraper views from the bedroom window – this is not a millionaire’s penthouse, but a typical condo, the most common type of housing in Kuala Lumpur.

Depending on the level of the complex, the condominium may have a roof garden, cafe, coworking space, laundry and library. But even a minimal set in the form of an apartment with a kitchen, fitness equipment and a swimming pool sounds great. Renting an apartment in a condo costs about the same as a hotel and automatically gives you access to all the benefits of the complex. A great way to live like a local and take some trendy poolside Instagram photos!

Tip: Most of the condos are located in the dormitory areas of Kuala Lumpur.If you are only in the city for a couple of days and do not want to waste time on the subway, look for a hotel in Chinatown: there are many cozy hotels and cool cafes and most attractions are within walking distance.

Where to Live in Bangkok to Save

Travel to China and India

Malaysia – a spicy stew of cultures and languages: in the local nasi lemak generously spices India and adds a fragrant broth China.The eclecticism of the country was absorbed by the Thean Hou temple with features of Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhism. If you’re lucky, watch a Chinese wedding: ceremonies are often held in the temple.

It is easy to travel to another country without air tickets and registration in Chinatown: on Petaling Street (Jalan Petaling) market life is raging, traditional paper lanterns are reddening and street food is briskly trading.

A completely different atmosphere in the Chinese temple Chin Swee on Genting Highlands: a grand pagoda, Buddha statues, cave tunnels and mountain panoramas are an hour and a half drive from Kuala Lumpur.

Sri Mahamariamman can be seen from afar: the oldest Hindu temple in Kuala Lumpur is replete with multi-colored figures of deities and beckons with aromas of incense. To delve into the atmosphere of an oriental fairy tale, a walk through the Little India area, where ringing bracelets and flowers for offerings are sold at every corner, and mantras sound from the shops and smells of fresh masala dosa cakes.

Go Shopping

In Kuala Lumpur, you can find everything: from a top iPhone to pants with elephants.Experienced shopaholics arrive here with an empty suitcase and go to the Bukit Bintang area, where the city’s best malls have gathered. There are many shops in the “Golden Triangle” area near the Jalan P. Ramlee bar street.

For crazy Asian shopping, head to the old Central Market, where you can spend hours choosing souvenirs and looking at curiosities. Accept that you won’t be able to “run in for a minute”: here you went for a couple of souvenirs, but an hour later you are still admiring the paintings of local masters, singing along to street musicians, asking the price of spices and, at the same time, that delicious soup in a Chinese cafe.

Find antiquity among the skyscrapers

On the spacious Independence Square (Merdeka), it is hard to believe that you are in a noisy bustling Asia. Take a selfie with local Big Ben crowning the palace of Sultan Abdul Samad, look at outfits from different parts of the country at the Textile Museum and don’t miss the free KL City Gallery with a fascinating insight into the city’s past and creative photo corners. An entire room is occupied by a grandiose model of the entire metropolis, over which a laser show is turned on every 10-15 minutes.

There is a souvenir shop and a cafe with delicate durian cakes in the gallery, and in the lobby at the information desk, we advise you to inquire about interesting places in Kuala Lumpur and sign up for a free walking tour of the city.

To delve into the history of Malaysia and learn how puppets are made for traditional shadow theater, visit the National Museum. And to touch the royal luxury, take a look at the museum at the royal palace of Istana Negara: they are not allowed inside, but no one will interfere with admiring the building from afar and taking pictures with the sentries.

Kuala Lumpur Railway Station is not inferior to the splendor of the palace. Admire the fabulous building from the outside, or look inside to view the collection of the small museum and buy a ticket to the Batu Caves.

A portal in time opens in the Kampung Baru area. Although land in the very center of Kuala Lumpur costs fabulous money, the residents of the “new village” decided that they value more cozy mansions and the atmosphere of the traditional Malay way of life.Now tourists and gourmets come to admire the island of ethnicity with colorful houses among the sea of ​​high-rise buildings: whole food tours are driving around the area!

If you only have a day to explore the city, the most convenient way to cover all the interesting is the Hop On Hop Off bus. You can buy a ticket for a day or 2 days and get on and off the bus at any stop as many times as you like. The bus has an audio guide in Russian, and discounted tickets are often available on Klook.

Try all the cuisines of the world

Malaysia is an ebullient cauldron of culinary traditions.Great burgers or Florentin eggs for breakfast are easy to find here, but if you want authentic food, head to Jalan Alor, where street food carts are crowded, or to Hutong Food Court at Lot 10 Mall.

Choose aromatic Chinese soup, soft Indian tortillas or nasi kandar : rice with a choice of toppings, from meat and seafood to vegetable curries.

A separate entertainment in Malaysia is to taste the “king of fruits” durian.Here they simply adore this legendary smelly fruit, prepare desserts from it and eat it fresh in special cafes with a dozen varieties. It is best to get acquainted with durian there: an unpleasant smell appears from the contact of the pulp with air, so the fruit should be eaten cut right in front of you. Just in case, the cafe will give you gloves and napkins and help you choose the ripe fruit.

Which Malaysian dishes are suitable for vegetarians and vegans

Meet sharks and rays

In Kuala Lumpur, you can not only hover in the clouds at the observation decks of sky bars, but also go down under the water.At the Aquaria KLCC, you will walk through an underwater tunnel with turtles and rays. You can even swim with the shark or visit the fish in a transparent cage. And if it’s too extreme, watch the feeding of sharks and piranhas from a safe distance and admire the tiny transparent fish through glass – you will get no less impressions!

Also cool oceanarium and other activities in Dubai

Climb the rainbow staircase to the caves

The atmosphere near the caves of Batu takes you to India: women sell bright fabrics, and nimble monkeys strive to steal shiny glasses or sweets.272 multi-colored steps lead up to the grandiose Temple Cave, where among the stalactites and stalagmites, Hindus burn candles and lay offerings to the gods.

In the Ramayana cave, the history of the struggle between Rama and Ravana is presented in sculptures and paints, it is interesting to look at the statues and drawings in the Museum and Artistic caves. It is especially interesting in the Batu caves in winter, during the colorful Hindu festival of Taipusam, when hundreds of pilgrims flock here.

If nature and thrills beckon you more than temples, there are many climbing routes around the Batu Caves.

The most interesting festivals and holidays around the world

Visit the Gardens of Eden

In the business center of Kuala Lumpur, one cannot help wondering why this city is one of the greenest megacities in Asia. Everything falls into place in the botanical garden.

In the world’s largest Bird Park, parrots and hornbills circle freely right above your head, in the tropical Butterfly Garden you will walk in a whirlwind of beautiful insects of all colors of the rainbow, and in the Orchid Park you will admire a collection of plants from different parts of the world – and all this in 15 minutes walk from avenues and skyscrapers!

If there is only time and energy for one place, choose the Bird Park: it is easy to spend the whole day here watching the feeding of nimble lorises and proud eagles and admiring the flamingos.

Find yourself in an oriental fairy tale

Even if you are far from the history of religions, it will be a shame to miss the Museum of Islamic Art in Kuala Lumpur. Firstly, it is beautiful: ancient Chinese jugs with intricate painting and rare copies of the Koran, ancient manuscripts and magnificent jewelry, festive dresses of oriental beauties and weapons with handles in the form of lion heads … Even if you do not read all the tablets, you can admire the exhibits for hours.An entire room in the museum is occupied by models of the world’s most impressive mosques, and there is also a fabric that covered the entrance to the Kaaba.

You can refresh your strength in between studying a dozen expositions in the museum restaurant: order Arabic coffee with baklava or refresh yourself with a glass of cold hibiscus, which is included in the museum ticket price.

It is interesting to continue immersion in oriental aesthetics in the National Mosque of Masjid Negara. Here Islamic traditions appear in a different light: in comparison with medieval mosques, this one looks airy and modern, match the metropolis of Kuala Lumpur.For contrast, check out Masjid Jama, one of the oldest mosques in the city with an unusual Moorish-style façade and picturesque garden.

See How Tough Tin Soldiers Are Made

The Royal Selangor factory has been producing cool tin products for the second hundred years. From glasses and dishes to Christmas tree decorations in the shape of Darth Vader, everything is equally graceful and durable.

If you come to the factory, you can make and take home a beautiful plate or decor item yourself.But at Royal Selangor it is interesting and simple to look at all stages of the production of tableware and jewelry on a free tour and admire candlesticks, trays and wine glasses in the company store.

Free shuttles are taken from some hotels to the factory. Even if your hotel is not on the list, you can get there on your own or write to Royal Selangor with a request to arrange a transfer.

Where to go from Kuala Lumpur for one day

It’s easy to spend a week in Kuala Lumpur and find new things to do every day.But if time permits, it is worth getting out of the metropolis to find yourself in a deserted city, a French village or on a magical lake.

Putrajaya: Desert City

Few people know, but technically the capital of Malaysia is not Kuala Lumpur at all, but Putrajaya: the administrative center 20 km from KL, where the government sits. During the day, everyone is busy in their offices, so there is not a soul on the streets: enjoy the silence in the park, admire the magnificent pink Putra Mosque and take a boat ride on the lake.

Best to come on weekdays: Locals love to come to Putrajaya on weekends, and the city is getting a lot more crowded.

You can go to Putrajaya one day from Kuala Lumpur, but it is more convenient to combine the visit with the road to the airport. If you are taking a taxi, ask the driver to drive you around Putrajaya before heading to the airport.

Genting Highlands: Chinese Temple and Amusement Park

On Genting Hill, an hour and a half drive from Kuala Lumpur, there is a luxury resort with beautiful hotels, shopping centers, attractions and casinos.

But the most interesting thing is not even at the top of the hill, but on the way to it. There are amazing views from the cable car cabin, and if you get off at the intermediate station, take a walk at the cave Chinese temple, take a picture of a colorful pagoda and admire the scenery in the company of the Buddha.

Colmar Tropicale village: a corner of Europe

The village with the appetizing name of Colmar Tropicale is a copy of the French village of the same name, a corner of Europe in the middle of Asia.Cozy half-timbered houses with turrets, tiled roofs, horse rides and Mediterranean restaurants – you’ve never seen a Malaysia like this!

There is also a “Japanese village” nearby – this is for you to satisfy your craving for exotic in one weekend.

Selangor River: Magic Fireflies

Just an hour’s drive from the skyscrapers of Kuala Lumpur, magic is happening. Fireflies have chosen the Selangor River, and in such numbers that in the evenings all the coastal bushes begin to glow like garlands on a Christmas tree!

You can get to Selangor by taxi or by your own transport, but if you are planning a romantic evening, take a look at the tours: in addition to sailing on a boat to the fireflies, they include an excursion to the old fort of Altingsburg and a dinner with seafood.

Chef of a Malay cuisine restaurant – that everything in life should be tried

In the midst of the high tourist season in Southeast Asia, we spoke with the chef of Rebung Restaurant in Kuala Lumpur about what to try in Malaysia.

Malaysia is not the most popular destination among our tourists. Pushed away from the main tourist routes towards Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam, Malaysia stands to the side, modestly gleaming from the windows of the famous double skyscraper in Kuala Lumpur. Meanwhile, on the street stalls of the capital and other cities, spicy chicken and beef kebabs, fried noodles, spicy soups with noodles and coconut milk languish. Peanut sauce promises to turn your mind about peanuts (if you are not allergic, of course), chicken and beef slices are drowned in thick curry sauce along with potatoes, and if there is room for dessert, roti pancakes are waiting for you or, if you dare to try, some bubur jagong – corn in sweet coconut milk.

Malaysia is the place to eat, it is a melting pot of the culinary traditions of Thailand, China and India. We talked about this with the chef of the Rebung restaurant Ismail Ahmad, who came to Moscow specifically to tell and show what they eat in Malaysia.

Ismail Ahmad, Chef of Rebung Restaurant

from personal archive

– What must a traveler in Malaysia have to try?

– Malaysia is a multicultural, multinational country, we have representatives of different races.Therefore, it all depends on the cuisine of which country is closest to you. For example, fried egg noodles with beef or chicken – a dish of Indian Muslims, roti pancakes are also of Indian origin, satay – kebabs – of Indonesian origin (although many believe that they are Thai), lor bak – pork stewed in a broth with five Chinese spices – you can try in Chinese areas.

Much has come to Malaysian cuisine from other regions: noodles and soy sauce from China, spices from India, ginger and lemongrass from Thailand.But we don’t use fish sauce! This is Thai food!

– Do you have a favorite dish of the local cuisine?

– Laksa, a fish noodle soup with coconut milk and spices, is considered by many to be the best Malay dish. But my favorite is nasi lemak, the most popular with the locals.

It is usually eaten for breakfast: it is rice cooked with coconut milk and pandan leaves, to it – a little fish in sauce, a little chili paste, hot vegetable oil, a cucumber, a boiled egg.

This is a must-eat if you want to taste authentic Malay food. I also love kulhi – these are all kinds of sweets that are eaten throughout the day, around the clock, some places in Malaysia are open 24 hours. And of course, a festive dish – beef rendan, pieces of meat in a very thick spicy sauce.

– What is the difference in Malaysia between street food and restaurant food?

– In the price and conditions in which it is served. Most restaurant meals can be bought at street stalls.It is completely safe. There are quite strict requirements for street food from the government: it must be sold in certain places, clean, specially equipped, and convenient. So in a restaurant and on the street, the dishes are the same – only in establishments they are more expensive.

– Is it possible to cook Malay cuisine in Russia? Local produce.

– I think so. You have flour, eggs, potatoes, rice, vegetables … True, you have a lot of canned, pickled vegetables, but we have everything fresh.

– Are there any special spices?

– We mainly have Indian spices – coriander, anise, cumin. There is lemongrass – in Russia, you can probably buy it in stores selling Asian products.

– Are there any Malay food that the West cannot eat?

– Funny question. Not anymore. Young people travel a lot around the world, so it is not a problem for young people to try new dishes.

– Not everyone loves Durian.

– My Swiss friend loves durians.

– Me too, but still most of them hate its smell.

– It’s all about how you present people with this or that product, how you persuade them to try it. This is not poison, this is food! In Europe, there are also foods that smell unpleasant, such as cheeses.

– Is there food in Russia that you don’t like? A herring, for example?

– I love herring. I love caviar.Especially with pancakes. In Malaysia, there is generally black caviar – this is a sign of belonging to high society. During our internship at Hilton International in the late 1970s, we made canapes with black caviar. True, I am a cook – I must try everything in life.

When I started my studies, I cooked dishes of European, mainly French, cuisine. And only ten years after graduation he returned to the traditional cuisine of his country.

– Are there restaurants with Michelin stars in your country?

– Not yet: Malay restaurants are not chasing stars.Personally, I don’t want to become a Michelin chef. This is too much stress.

A really good restaurant and a good chef don’t need Michelin stars: they are already known.

Chefs like me don’t go to gourmet restaurants on holidays. The promoted fusion restaurants are too focused on commercial success. We love local family restaurants.

– Are there any restrictions in Malaysian cuisine?

– Yes, of course. Most Malaysians are Muslims and of course they adhere to the halal rules.But in general, the set of products from which we prepare is determined by the region in which we live. The ethnic composition of the community is unimportant: Chinese, Indians, Malays from the same area cook from the same products, except that the Chinese eat pork, unlike everyone else, and people from India avoid beef. Well, in addition, we have restaurants of European cuisine – Italian, French … Oh, but there is no Russian, it seems!

– I don’t think a Russian restaurant would be popular in Malaysia: the food is too unusual.

– No, why, we are very open. I am sure that there would be people who would be interested in Russian cuisine, who would like to try.

– Is there anything left in Malaysian cuisine from the days when the archipelago was a British colony?

– Yes, crumbly buttery biscuits. Only we cook it in our own way: inside it has a pineapple jam filling.

– What is the easiest Malaysian dish to cook at home?

– Probably fried noodles with vegetables.It’s very easy!

Put garlic in oil, fry quickly, when you smell aroma, send tofu and tomatoes to the pan.

Add salt and sugar to taste, stir everything again, throw soy sprouts into the noodles and turn off after a minute.

What to see in Kuala Lumpur?

Kuala Lumpur City is one of the main transfer points on the way to many islands in Asia. Someone has only a couple of hours for this city, other travelers decide to devote a few days to the capital of Malaysia. We will tell you how to spend time in the most modern Malaysian city and what sights of Kuala Lumpur you should definitely see in the first place.

Kuala Lumpur Skyscrapers

All roads in Kuala Lumpur lead to the Twin Towers – Petronas.These are two skyscrapers over 450 meters high, which are connected by a bridge. The Petronas Towers are visible from almost every area of ​​the city, so you cannot get around them.

You can go up to the 88th floor, where the observation deck is located, but you should take care of tickets in advance to avoid long queues. But it’s better to admire the towers next to them. You can also look inside the towers where the huge Suria KLCC shopping center is located. Here you can buy souvenirs, clothes, shoes and jewelry, and most importantly, to cool off after the Malaysian heat.In addition to shops, there are art galleries, offices and restaurants inside.

Kuala Lumpur Central Park. Posted by @prosto_tonia

Exit the towers and head to the city’s main park, KL Central Park. It is located right next to the towers and is surrounded on all sides by modern skyscrapers. It may feel like you are in New York’s Central Park. This is a picturesque park with well-groomed alleys and a huge fountain-pool in the center. Children love it very much, as they are allowed to run and splash in it.

In the evening, be sure to visit this park for the fountain show. Here they turn on colorful illumination and play popular music. The show is free.

We also recommend walking to another high-rise building in Kuala Lumpur – Menara TV Tower. She, like the Petronas Towers, is visible from everywhere. You can also climb to the TV tower and even have a dinner at the very top. It offers one of the best views of the Petronas Towers.

After visiting the skyscrapers of Kuala Lumpur, head to the main tourist streets of the city – Bukit Bintang and Jalan Alor.They are full of authentic shops and street food stalls.

Historic City

After exploring the modern skyscrapers, it’s time to get to know the other side of Kuala Lumpur and feel the atmosphere of the eastern city.

Go to the main square of the city – Merdeka Square. This is an important location in the history of the city, since it was here in 1957 that the independence of the Malaysians from Britain was proclaimed.Take a panoramic photo of all nearby attractions, and then take a selfie in front of the famous red lettering “I LOVE KL”.

Near the square you will see the oldest mosque in the city – Jamek. The construction of Kuala Lumpur began with it, and now the mosque looks especially unusual in contrast to the city’s skyscrapers. The entrance to the mosque is free, and at the entrance you will be given special women’s and men’s suits.

Merdeka Square and a view of the palace of Sultan Abdul-Samad. Posted by: @ghaliaghazel

Another main attraction near the square is the building of the palace of Sultan Abdul-Samad.Marvel at the unique Moorish architecture of the palace and find the clock tower. Unfortunately, you cannot enter the palace itself – the Supreme and High Courts of Malaysia are located there.

After exploring the historic sites of Merdeka Square, head to Chinatown. It is one of the largest Chinatowns in the world outside of China and a popular attraction in Kuala Lumpur. Here you can see authentic Chinese temples, as well as stroll along the many shops along Petaling street and Jalan Petaling.Shop for local souvenirs or sample traditional Chinese delicacies.

Natural attractions

Ascent to the Batu caves. Posted by @ ale4kafly

Malaysia is a country with unique nature and vegetation, and this has not bypassed its capital. Take a walk through the picturesque Taman Tasik Perdana Park, which contains several interesting attractions – Bird and Butterfly Parks, as well as Orchid and Hibiscus Gardens. And if you want to relax and unwind, sit on the green lawn in the shade of the exotic jungle and have a picnic.

Another important attraction of Kuala Lumpur is located slightly outside the city – 13 kilometers from it. These are the famous temples in the Batu caves.
