Kuala Lumpur 吉隆坡

Short getaway trip to Kuala Lumpur, the city of Malaysia which I took only an hour flight from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur.

I boarded the Airasia flight which brought me to LCCT, followed by taking a bus to KL Sentral.
Some options to travel to KL Sentral:
  • Skybus (RM9 per person)
  • Aerobus (RM8 per person) - chose this option because it’s the cheapest.
  • Transport to KLIA (RM12.50), then take KLIA Express to KL Sentral (RM35) – a bit time consuming travelling to KLIA.
I strongly recommend Hilton Hotel because of its location! Look out for the direction to the hotel.

Hilton Hotel is located right behind KL Sentral which is a transport hub that consists of:
  • KTM Intercity
  • KTM Komuter – To travel to Batu Caves Station
  • Kelana Jaya Line (KJL) - To travel to KLCC & Pasar Seni Station
  • Ampang Line
  • KLIA Ekspres - For easy/fast travel to KL International Airport
  • KLIA Transit – For travelling to KL International Airport
  • KL Monorail - Monorail is located outside of KL Sentral (10 mins walk) / To travel to Bukit Bintang, Times Square for shopping

Shopping & Food
Petaling Street (Morning) – Travel by KJL from KL Sentral to Pasar Seni Station (5 mins walk) / RM1 per person

Before you reach Petaling Street, there’s this Guan Di Temple on the right side of the junction. Worshippers may make your prayers at the temple. Click here for more info on Guan Di.
 As you walk further down the street, some stalls are already opened (as early as 7am).

  • You may buy some “kuehs” and light snacks from the elder lady. The yellow / pink buns are meant for praying (Huat Kueh in the Bao = Bao Huat).
  • Another stall sells dried food like brown/white coconut & ginger, and rice dumplings too.
  • Further down, there are 2 stalls selling porridge and I chose the one on the left, simply because their steamed chicken is tasty!

Nearby, this stall sells buns and some light snacks. You could buy some snacks for tea break. 

How to go to my favourite stall for Hakka Noodles?
  • Walk inwards for about 2 minutes from the stall as shown above (the direction the man is walking to).
  • The stall is located on the left side.
  • Order the “Hakka noodles”!
Along the street, there’s this stall that sells Bee Hoon, Chee Chong Fun, Yam Kueh, etc.

And as you walk back towards the Station, along the street, you will notice this elder lady selling Ma Chi. She had been selling the Ma Chi for quite sometime. And definitely must buy the Ma Chi! Recommend to eat on the spot, not suitable to keep for long.

Flavours that she’s selling – Ribena, Mango, Lychee, Black Sesame & Pandan
Petaling Street (Night) – Travel by KJL from KL Sentral to Pasar Seni Station (5 mins walk) / RM1 per person

Hong Kee Claypot - Located at the end of the street. The claypot chicken rice is definitely good and filling. You can order grill fish to go along with.

Note: They separated the tables; if you order from the fruit drink stall, you may sit at the left side tables, otherwise you have to sit on the right side tables.

KLCC - Travel by KJL from KL Sentral to KLCC Station (RM1+ per person)
KLCC shopping mall is somewhat similar to those in Singapore. But you must definitely not miss this shop’s desserts! Must try the Sesame Snow Ice!

Batu Caves - Travel by KTM Komuter to Batu Caves Station (RM1 per person)
A place not to be missed!

Bring about RM200 should be more than enough for 3D2N trip.
