Zalina Abdul Aziz, Writer and Representative for Royal Selangor Golf Club, gave us some suggestion about what to visit in Kuala Lumpur:

“Kuala Lumpur is a great city to stay in or to visit – and its people among the friendliest.

Savor the little quirks of the city – crafts and artists at Karyaneka or the Central Market, the hidden rambling bungalow which houses Alliance Francaise on Lorong Gurney. At the very modern KL Twin Towers, the Aquaria KLCC, Galeri Petronas and the PetroSains Discovery Centre are a great treat for families. Apart from the National Museum, visit the Islamic Arts Museum, Istana Budaya and the National Arts Gallery. Modern skyscrapers juxtaposed with old architecture like the Moorish inspired KTM railway station dot the KL skyline. Walk into any corner kopitiam for a real Malaysian barista treat. You must taste the coconut drink, durian and mangosteen.

The LRT, Hop-On Hop-Off buses and the monorail offer a convenient way to get around. A hidden jewel nestled practically at the footsteps of the world’s tallest twin towers is the Royal Selangor Golf Club – the Home of Malaysian Golf, established in 1893, a sprawling 36 hole walking course. You never run out of places to visit in Kuala Lumpur. One day, or a thousand, in KL will reward you with a lifetime of memories”.
