There are a lot of things that you can do in Kuala Lumpur and some of them would require you to pay a lot of money. Whether you are getting girl escorts, buying expensive clothing at the Pavilion, or just visiting and dining in one of the premier hotels in the city, you can expect that you will get broke within a couple of days.
However, there are also things that you can do that are either inexpensive or you can do them absolutely free of charge.
Today, I am going to be talking about some fun things that you can do in Kuala Lumpur that doesn’t break the bank.
Visit the Petronas Art Gallery
If you are in Kuala Lumpur Convention Center, you can head on over to the mall and visit the Petronas Art Gallery from there.
It houses many art pieces from prominent Malaysian artists. You can find plenty of designs and art that has several different themes, including the depiction of Malaysian independence from the colonizers, the way of life in Malaysia, among many other themes.
Take a Picnic at the Park
KLCC Park is definitely one of the main tourist attractions in the city. In fact, when you go at the top of the Petronas Towers and you look down below, the park is the first thing that meets the eye.
That is because KLCC Park is a massive 50-acre land where you can find plenty of things to do. You can enjoy having a picnic with your family and friends under the shady trees, you can have your children swim in the pools for free, and when you can come at night, you can experience the magical dancing fountains in the area as well.
Jungle-Trekking at the KL Forest Eco Park
The KL Forest Eco Park is one of the only rainforest reserves that is protected from urban development. That being said, its newest attraction is its 200m canopy walk where you can traverse the bridges so that you can enjoy what the eco park has to offer.
The good thing is that admission is free but you’d want to go during the weekdays since this place is going to be crowded on Saturdays and Sundays.
Do Some Window Shopping in One of KL’s Prime Malls
The Pavilion Mall in Kuala Lumpur is one of the premier shopping spots in the city. You can find more than 550 retail outlets inside the premises, as well as restaurants that will surely keep you fed for prolonged periods of time.
You can do some window shopping to find the things that you like and you can just go back at a later time if you have the money to buy them.
Explore Petaling Street
During the day, you can find many different stores and stalls that sell you many Malaysian handicrafts and products. At night, it transforms into a bustling city street where you can find many hawker stalls that sell amazing foods from different cultures.
Visit the National Monument
Designed by an Austrian Sculptor back in 1966, the National Monument was built in commemoration to the fallen soldiers who have fought valiantly to gain the country’s independence.
