Kuala Lumpur itinerary for 1 day — Destination 1: Thean Hou Temple
This is one of the most famous Chinese temples in Malaysia with a large number of tourists visiting every day. Here, you can freely admire the unique architecture, take many so deep photos, see the traditional Chinese-style wedding or looking the view of Kuala Lumpur capital from the 4th floor.
To get to the Thean Hou Temple in the most economical way, you can take the train to Bangsar station, from this station, take a Grab bike or car to go straight to Thean Hou Temple, but if you like to explore, let’s walk a little bit. Open the Google map, if you pass an old Indian building, don’t think you are lost because you are on the right track. But the way to Thean Hou Temple is quite steep, steeper than the slope of Dalat, Vietnam, so we advise you to still getting by car to keep your strength, because you have still a long day ahead.

One day in Kuala Lumpur — Destination 3: Petaling Street in Chinatown
Traveling to Kula Lumpur without visit Chinatown is a big mistake. There are thousands of delicious foods in Chinatown, for efficient heat-relieving, Living Nomads suggests a drink called Longan (like the tea of the arhat fruit but the taste is very freshly sweet). Some of the highlights foods you must try at here are Spicy Pan Mee, Wonton Noodle, Hokkien Mee … If you like cafe and brunch, you can go to Merchant’s Lane Cafe (Address: 150, Jalan Petaling, City Centre, 50000 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia / Hours: 11:30AM–9:30PM. Wednesday: Closed / Phone: +60 3-2022 1736).
Another special thing is that in Petaling Street there are all kinds of goods that can be bought as gifts, many fake counterfeits of famous brands. Choose a gift or a signature tea or coffee to bring back as a gift for your family and friends is a good idea. And remember to pocket some Malaysian sentences for bargaining because shopping in places where prices are not listed is easily overcharge price.
