Touristy things to do ?? …


1. GoKL Bus 

What better way to spend time with your loved one than chilling in an airconditioned bus as you pass through KL’s concrete jungle…

We LOVE the idea of this date plan! Plus it’s really convenient and accessible for you to reach most if not all of KL’s popular landmarks. The best part? You won’t need to spend a dime on bus fares with GoKL busses. Just make sure you don’t travel during office rush hours!

There’s around 11 different bus routes for you to choose from but we suggest the Purple Line as it takes you along Bukit Bintang area.

2. REXKL, Petaling Street

This spot is frequented by all the cool urbanites in the city. REXKL used to be a theater in the past but the old building has since been revived and done-up as a cultural and lifestyle hub for hipsters alike.

The hub has a variety of seating areas, such as bar stools, outdoor benches, and dining tables, to accommodate visitors. So there’s plenty of seats for you to lounge about after you explore Petaling Street!

7. Hike at Taman Tugu

Located just beside Perdana Botanical Garden is Taman Tugu, home to trees that are over 100 years old!

Though KL is famed for its sparkling towers and bustling malls, nature treasures may be found snuggled in the city’s core. This 66-acre park is located on property that was once reserved for a theme park and was preserved together with the secondary forest that it contains. There are various hiking trails to explore and enjoy the scenery…

Taman Tugu contains relatively short and easy pathways that allow anyone to participate in this pastime. Our special favourite about this park are the various swings you can find dotted along the trails.

Ask your boyfriend to push you on the swing lah!
