2. Batu Caves
One of the top tourist locations in Kuala Lumpur, Batu Caves is located only 13km from downtown. It is not merely because of the convenient access to the caves that makes it popular, it is about what you find here.

The Batu Caves tour package with Merryworld Holidays even brings you through the nearby Pewter Factory and Museum, which contains some amazing artifacts and a chance to make your own pewter bowl.
3. Dataran Merdeka and Sultan Abdul Samad Building
This is a part of the Kuala Lumpur Culture Tour - and for very good reason! Dataran Merdeka in Malaysian literally means"Independence Square" thus symbolizing a testament to the strength of the nation.
Throughout the vicinity are multiple buildings of interest, both cultural and historical, such as the Royal Selangor Club Complex, the City Gallery, and St. Mary's Anglican Church.
Be sure to take pictures of the 95-meter tall flagpole. It's the longest in the world.
The Sultan Abdul Samad Building is currently home to the Ministry of Information, Communication and Culture.
Though it looks like a palace of some sort, this building has housed government officials, federal courts, and the like throughout history.
4. Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary
Elephants are beautiful, incredible creatures; and no place lets them shine like the Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary, or National Elephant Conservation Center, which is dedicated to protecting wild elephants.
This is done by rescuing endangered wild elephants, relocating them to the compound, and then finding protected lands to re-release them into their natural habitat.
What makes this sanctuary special is that the elephants are actually happy during their stay.
While you enjoying a tour through the sanctuary, you will be invited to learn how cool elephants really are with interactive performances, videos, and an enclosure where you can give adorable baby elephants peanuts.
5. Genting Highlands
Also known as Resorts World Genting, this hilltop resort is nestled within the Titiwangsa Mountains between Pahang and Selangor, Malaysia.
While you can access this place by car, you can also ride South East Asia's fastest gondola, the Genting Skyway, to the top!
Either way, accessing Genting Highlands is very simple and convenient, making a must-stop location during your travels.
Everything about Genting Highlands is mind blowing and no doubt one of the best places to visit in Malaysia.
There are indoor and outdoor theme parks for the thrill seekers, the Chin Swee Caves Temple for history buffs, the acclaimed Casino de Genting for the gamblers, three clubs (including Be a Star Karaoke) for partiers, and a five hotels to choose from - each with their own unique and brilliant facades - for those who simply want to sit back and relax.
Golfers will love the Awana Golf and Country Resort that is a par-71 course with 18 holes. Concerts and other performance venues also happen regularly.
6. Kuala Lumpur National Museum
When traveling throughout Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, you are certainly going to have questions about the location and want to learn about the city's history.
During your tour of Kuala Lumpur - one of the best being the City Tour package from Merry World Holidays - you can see pieces of history such as the National Monument, ASEAN Garden, and King's Palace before heading to the National Museum.
The National Museum, or Muzium Negara in Malay, is situated near the Perdana Lake Gardens and depicts the beauty of Minangkabau architecture.
Within the structure is a rich collection of Malaysian heritage, ranging from four galleries of ethnology and natural history, traditional weaponry, instruments, artwork, and preserved flora and fauna.
There are both permanent and special exhibitions to experience.
While at the museum, be sure to check out the original sized Terengganu timber palace called Istana Satu. You will want to see the keliriengs, or burial poles, and hear about the purpose behind them.
7. Kuala Lumpur Chinatown Street and Central Market
No trip to Kuala Lumpur is complete without a journey through the illuminated evening hours.
Though the city is bustling throughout the daytime, KL truly comes alive at night. Naturally, you are going to want to see the glow of the cityscape, like the KLCC Twin Towers.
But at the epicenter of these highlights are two shopping points that offer a combination of cultural experiences, bargain prices, and beautiful sights.
Chinatown is based on Petaling Street, and it is immersed in Chinese heritage. If you are looking for decently priced goods, like Chinese herbs, clothing, food, or souvenirs, Chinatown has so much in store for you.
Plus, at light, the street is lit up in a festival of colors. There are other temples such as:
- Sir Mahamariamman Temple
- Kuan Yin Temple
- Chan See Shu Yuen Temple
- Sin Sze Si Ya Temple to visit.
No place is better for perusing though than the 120 year old Central Market, the artistic headquarters of KL and classified Heritage Site. If you stop by the Batik Emporium, you may even find an impromptu art or dance performance!
See it all with a Night Tour.
8. Kuala Selangor Fireflies Park
Though technically not a"park" as some may think, Selangor is home to a famous firefly colony.
At night, the fireflies emerge from their hiding places to dance along the riverbank and around the Berembang trees. The reflection of these twinkling lights on the water is mesmerizing.
Should you find yourself seeking out the fireflies, it is recommended to make the most of your time by utilizing a tour package.
This includes a cruise down the river in special noiseless boats, so you can get an immersive experience with the fireflies and enjoy the fresh night air.
Nearby, you will find a great assortment of restaurants with tasty offerings, like fresh seafood.
In 2008, this city became a globally recognized UNESCO World Heritage Site, because Malacca is that great.
The blend of culture here is, frankly, perfect. European and South East Asian elements come together in such a way that is great fun.
Travel along Jonker Street to feast on Malacca-based snacks, visit the Porta de Santiago for the Dataran Pahlawan Mega Mall or go early in the morning to visit the Dutch tombstones; check out the Baba Nyonya Heritage Museum or the Malacca Cultural Museum; and if you are here on a Sunday, be sure to visit the antique flea market along Jalan Hang Jekir.
Some of the most famous attractions, however, are the multiple places of worship.
There are churches, mosques and temples scattered throughout Malacca, making for a wonderful cultural scavenger hunt if you have the time.
10. Putrajaya and Cyberjaya
These two locations are sister cities. Putrajaya is the "Intelligent Garden City" while Cyberjaya is a center of Information Technology and Science.
Putrajaya has several attractions within the Core District, some of which even have dress codes to abide by.
The pink Putra Mosque is one of the main sites, so be sure to bring a camera! Afterwards, peruse the beautiful gardens around this new capital to see famous landmarks and gorgeous landscaping.
In Cyberjaya, there is the 400 acre Cyberjaya Lake Gardens that is worth visiting for the views of the city on the horizon or the IOI City Mall, one of the biggest shopping spots in the Klang Valley.
