Kuala Lumpur Is Not Just Bukit Bintang And KLCC


Yes Kuala Lumpur is more than that. I am sure many of us will agree that when we think of going to Kuala Lumpur,  the most talked about stories is of Bukit Bintang and KLCC. The most published picture in modern Kuala Lumpur is also, I think, of Petronas Twin Tower.  On one aspect, both places do represent Kuala Lumpur but  to know Kuala Lumpur is to see other areas too.

Bukit Bintang
No doubt Bukit Bintang has become the most attractive place to visit in Kuala Lumpur. It is a concentration of shopping complexes, entertainment and food and is lively 24/7. There are shopping complexes such as  Pavillion KL, KL Plaza, Lot 10 and the Siamese twins of BB Plaza and Sungai Wang Plaza. Bukit Bintang too has the Berjaya Time Square with shopping lots, the attraction of Cosmo's World Indoor Theme Park and hotel to add up to shoppers looking for choice.

If one savour local food, do not forget Jalan Alor where the whole street is dedicated to hawker stalls serving Chinese, Indian, Thai, Malay and fusion foods. Middle East Tourist can get a taste of home food from restaurants serving them along Jalan Bukit Bintang opposite Lot 0.


One building that never missed the lips of IT and computer savvy people is Low Yatt Plaza. It has turn out to be the largest one stop computer shopping venue after taking over from Imbi Plaza. Go HERE for a 3D location map for Bukit Bintang.

This is the section made up of Jalan Mesjid India or Little India, Dataran Merdeka, Central Market, Petaling Street, Railway Station and Brickfields. Within this places there are heritage buildings, colonial buildings and cultures. In fact to learn about the history Kuala Lumpur is to visit these places. Look for reference HERE and HERE.
