I had an absolutely lovely time checking out Malaysia’s capital city over 2 weeks. If you’re wandering what to do exactly, here are the coolest things to do in Kuala Lumpur.
So on my very first trip to Malaysia, I decided I would stay mainly in Kuala Lumpur. Everyone I know or blogs I’ve read have only really visited for a few days at the most, and I wanted to give myself time to get really comfortable with the city. So I stayed two weeks!

I’ve included everything I did, but at the bottom, I also included many things I didn’t have a chance to do in case you want to prioritize them on your visit!
