Malaysia Travel Wish List

I was so pleased that you enjoyed my last travel guide about The Caribbean as I had so much fun researching the different islands, best places to stay and what to see and do. I’m more than prepared for this paradise! In a bid to drum up more wanderlust I’m continuing my "Travel Wish List" series today with a Malaysia itinerary!

With Hong Kong as my headquarters, Southeast Asia is truly within arm’s reach, and I’m itching to travel around Singapore, Vietnam, Philippines and Malaysia. Though not being in want for a particular reason, my cousin tying the knot in Malaysia Summer 2018 puts this trip well and truly on the table, a stamp of guarantee if you’d like, so if there are any must see/do/eat places other than those below, please feel free to drop me a comment. I'd be grateful for your recommendations! 

At a glance, the capital Kuala Lumpur, appeals to the city girl in me without having to compromise cultural or historic landmarks and destinations. My cousin recently travelled to KL with raving reviews, particularly of the food, and if there’s anything that rules my heart it’s bomb eats! |


Two locations in particular pique my interest when it comes to finding accommodation:

Bukit Bintang - well regarded as Kuala Lumpur’s shopping and entertainment district, a close parallel to non-stop, sleepless Hong Kong. I’m sure I’d feel right at home with a plethora of shopping malls at my doorstep!

KLCC - at the very heart of KL, KLCC is home of some of the most upscale hotels in the city and ideal for phenomenal views of PETRONAS Twin Towers, it also makes for the perfect HQ for the luxury brand shopper in us!


Ascend the Petronas Twin Towers – at 452 metres tall you’re bound to get stunning panoramic views of the city from the observatory deck. I figure if I’m not able to climb the towers for a cityscape, a photo of the towers themselves would prove a lovely memento of KL. 

Explore the Batu Caves – an iconic and hugely popular tourist destination just outside of Kuala Lumpur identified by the large statue of the Hindu God marking the entrance. The Batu Caves features a limestone hill with a series of caves featuring temples and Hindu shrines.

Check out Central Market – conveniently located at the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Central Market is a centre for Malaysian culture, arts and crafts. Perfect for picking up a few souvenirs, don’t forget to stop by the Central Market Outdoor Stage  to experience the beauty of Malaysia's unique culture. |


Street foodJalan Alor boasts a unique collection of restaurants/street food on a road open till late, and is a must eat for all foodies looking for the most authentic Malaysian cuisine. Your stomach and wallet will thank you for it. 

Fine dining – there’s nothing like dining with a view. Having wined and dined at Heron Tower in London and Azure 45 in Tokyo, I know that I love taking my gastronomic experiences to new heights! Marini’s on 57 does exactly that on the 57th floor of Petronas tower 3, who wouldn’t want cocktails and delicious Italian cuisine whilst gazing out at Kuala Lumpur City.
CafĂ© – Swing by Dotty’s for Instagram worthy doughnuts, coffee and cake! This came with my cousin’s stamp of approval so it’s a must eat!  Scrolling through their Instagram certainly gives me pangs of hunger...
Now all that's left for us to do is book our flights! Being in such close proximity means our flight time from Hong Kong to KL should only take around 4 hours. I've been checking Air Asia's Promotions for the best deals and cheapest flights to the city! 

Let me know what places are on your travel wish list below!
