Arguably the best place to enjoy live performance in the city center. Located in Bukit Bintang and within the Changkat nightlife scene, their repertoires are mostly jazzy but on some night music of other genres are performed too.

To enjoy breathtaking view of the city, this tour is my personal preference and is better than the KL Tower one. It include a walk along the skybridge, and you also get to go to the top of one of the towers. This tour is usually SOLD-OUT a few days in advance so be sure to buy your ticket earlier. Many web platforms are offering the tickets for this tour however I recommend you to buy via the official site at: https://www.petronastwintowers.com.my/en/tickets

The world's largest free-flight walk-in aviary and arguably the best one too. Located within the Botanical Gardens where the National Mosque and the Islamic Arts Museum are located. With over 3000 bird species roaming freely, this park is a must if you're visiting with kids or simply if you just love to enjoy nature and animals. Do not miss the bird shows if you are visiting!

An oceanarium located in the Twin Towers. Personally, I think this one is better than the Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo however the S.E.A. Aquarium in Singapore offers better experience than this. But if you love marine life, why not visit them all anyway? If you are visiting by Grab, make sure to key-in KL Convention Center-Main Entrance as your drop-off location as Aquaria is just underneath the entrance. If you walking from the Twin Towers or the Suria KLCC shopping mall, avoid the underground tunnel and go out to walk along the park to the KL Convention Center instead. Not only you avoid the stuffy crowd but you also get to enjoy a beautiful stroll along the KLCC Park, should the weather is kind to you, that is ;-)

A food truck park just in front of the Twin Towers. It is within walking distance and located next to the Corus Hotel. To check on what truck is available on your day of visit, and what menu each truck will be serving you can download KAPITA app on your phone to access all the information. There are 2 other TAPAK locations but located slightly in the outskirts.

My personal favorite for a late-night shawarma in the city. They have a few locations within Bukit Bintang area and some open until the early mornings. The regular-size Chicken Shawarma is at RM6 (in perspective, USD1.40) Make sure to ask for cheese just for another RM2.

One of the more famous 'mamak' restaurants in the city. Especially busy during breakfast time on weekdays with the office crowd. Roti Canai (local name for Paratha) and Teh Tarik (local milk tea) is a must-try. I must warned you, drinks in this country are usually prepared with generous amount of sugar or sweet condensed milk, so always ask for 'less sweet' or as the local say it 'kurang manis' if you want.

There are a few cafes in CHINATOWN, however this one is my personal favorite. Be adventurous and try any of the food on the menu. Interesting selections of coffees and beers are available as well. Best place to sit is outside at the bar table facing the street to enjoy the view, should the weather is kind.

Best place to go for coffee & wine. Their food menu is worth a try too. Numerous locations within the city however this one is the most accessible to tourist as it is in Bukit Bintang. This brand is from Indonesia and they source their coffee beans directly from the farmers in their country.

The place to go for artisanal souvenirs. Even mentioned in New York Times and Monocle magazine. The location is slightly out of the city center, best to go via Grab.

Nightlife
A small bar located slightly hidden in the CHINATOWN area. The Attic Bar in Chinatown is a terrific discovery, not only because it is hard to find but also because it is one of the only bars in the area to marry a substantial menu of delicious food with inventive cocktails. Extra special is the opportunity to enjoy the refreshments from a view-filled twilight on the terrace until late into the evening. Reasons to visit The Attic Bar: Authentic pork-free Italian food presented by DOP Concept in tandem with speciality cocktails. The Negronis, the pesto and the tiramisu were particularly good. Go at sunset to catch great views of the city at twilight and watch the sun drop behind the roofscape of Chinatown.
