I woke up with a heavy heart because it is our last day in Singapore but knowing that we will leave for Malaysia made me beam. Here is our one-day DIY itinerary in Malaysia.
There are many convenient ways to reach Malaysia from Singapore but I and Criz opted to take a bus which was fairly easy. Read Singapore-Kuala Lumpur DIY tour for my summarized rundown of our trip which includes breezing through the immigration procedures.
The first thing we did when we got off the bus was to eat at one of the restaurants at the Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Then we headed to the China Town, which reminded me of our very own Divisoria, to buy their local pasalubongs. Just like in Divisoria, the stuff in there are a lot cheaper compared to when buying it from malls and you can still haggle over the price. You can also choose from their various stalls.
We were so excited when it was time for us to head to Batu Caves in Selangor. But, unfortunately, it was raining hard that time so we were not able to enter the place immediately. We went there by riding a bus from Kuala Lumpur City, and we went back to the city via the same mode of transportation.
There’s no entrance fee when going into the Batu Caves.
We run our asses off to the place and let ourselves soaked to the bone just to see the gods 🙂
After taking all the pictures we could, we immediately headed to Kuala Lumpur to see another gem, the Petronas Twin Towers.
We were kind of lost when we reached the city so we asked locals who we met along the way. They gave us directions to the Twin Towers and they warned us to take care of our belongings. And I thought, “Oooh, okay?”
It was still raining that night so we were not able to do so much strolling aside from admiring the Petronas Twin Towers and the dancing fountains at the KLCC Park. (Sad, I know! 🙁 )
Since we had no place to stay until the schedule of our departure, we spent the rest of our time at the Suria KLCC Mall. We took the bus (Airport coach) from KL Sentral to get into the Airport.
While it is true that Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is pretty much like Manila, I would also say that it is often underrated maybe because it is usually compared to other ASEAN countries. We were there for just one day but it was not really enough to explore this beautiful place. But if I could single out one memorable time only, it would be seeing the Petronas Twin Towers, which is one of the finest modern architectural pieces in the world.
I hope you can get a thing or two from this one-day DIY Itinerary in Malaysia. 🙂
