How to Spend 3 Days in Kuala Lumpur

How to Spend 3 Days in Kuala Lumpur

With three days in Kuala Lumpur, you can do more than just discover the city—you can also experience the attractions that make Malaysia so special: rainforest, elephant sanctuaries, colonial cities, and cruises through the mangroves with fireflies. You won’t be able to do it all but, as you can see below, you will be spoiled for choice.

 

Day 1: Essential Kuala Lumpur

There’s no better way to get a handle on a new city, particularly one as geographically confusing as Kuala Lumpur, than with a guided city tour. Spend the morning hitting the signature sights within the city limits, from colonial-era architecture such as Masjid Jamek and the King’s Palace to contemporary structures like the Petronas Twin Towers and the KL Tower. In the afternoon, head out to KL’s top attraction, the Hindu Batu Caves temple complex—and watch out for cheeky monkeys. As night falls, join a food tour to discover the city’s rich, multicultural cuisine and explore vibrant areas such as Little India and Chinatown. Finish by soaking up the views from a sky-high observation deck, perhaps in the Petronas Twin Towers.

Day 2: Orchids, Birds, and Fireflies

Kuala Lumpur’s green spaces aren’t immediately obvious at first blush, but they’re most definitely there. Get to know Malaysia’s rich plant and animal life in the Perdana Botanical Garden (Lake Gardens). The Lake Gardens aren’t home to just a world-class selection of orchids, but also to the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park and the Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park; some tours give you access to all three as well as transportation. After a leisurely lunch, head out to Kuala Selangor, best known for the fireflies that glitter among its mangroves. Enjoy a mangrove cruise, a seafood feast, and exploring the old military fort and royal cemetery that give the town its sense of history.

 

Day 3: More Malaysia

While you can’t see all of peninsular Malaysia from Kuala Lumpur, you can still use your last day in town to see more of the countryside. That could mean a trip to an elephant sanctuary, such as the conservation center at Kuala Gandah: tours often include a stop at an indigenous settlement and a visit to a deer park. It could mean soaking up the history in Melaka (Malacca), a historic trading settlement that’s on the UNESCO World Heritage list for its glorious colonial architecture, or immersing in modern architecture in Malaysia’s seat of government, Putrajaya. Or it could mean taking the opportunity to discover some of the pristine rainforest that still persists only an hour or two from the city itself. Whatever you choose, wrap up the night with a memorable meal, be that a banquet with tribal dancers, a buffet in a revolving restaurant, or fine fusion fare in a skyscraper.
