    It’s one of the go too sights for KL and viewed from the outside it’s impressive at day but especially at night by the nearby light show. The actual tour and sky bridge are very much hit and miss dependent on weather. Gift shop and photo gifts are expensive but do have good variety. Luggage store for buggy was very handy as they’re not allowed up. Would’ve liked more time to read the history of the building. Online booking didn’t work for me straightaway but is the best option to avoid queues. Go at least once while you’re in KL but the best views are probably outside looking at the towers.

    It was a drizzling, so didn't get to stand at the skydeck. Personally it quite waste of time to just be at the observation deck as I'm not interested to visit skydeck.

    A beautifully decorated temple located on the hill. Thean Hou is among very few temples/pagodas in KL open late. The sunset over Thean Hou is impressive. We were on a slightly windy late afternoon with spectacular sunset. Afterward, all the lanterns were lit up. Stunning!!!

    The Central Market is an eclectic mix of souvenirs, art everywhere you look and Batik all housed in a beautiful old building full of character.

    Unfortunately due to covid there are a lot of empty shop fronts, however I am positive when international tourists return this place will bounce back to it's former glory.

    Definitely worth a look when in KL!

    Beautiful scenery at night .... nothing special just the water fountain up and down with beautiful lights. I couldn’t hear any music because it’s so noisy.

    Very useful linkway bridge to connect from Pavillon Mall to KLCC. Feel pretty safe to walk in the daytime. Avoid all the traffic jam too.

    We went to visit the Mosque and we had a beautiful experience. Women have to wear a cover up they lend you. We had a guide explain to us and we understood a lot about the religion. It was large and beautiful

    Although we couldn't enter the building, this complex of 19th century British colonial structures is a great spot to visit both day and night - and preferably both. We walked by randomly during the day and took some pictures. However, we returned at night when there were loads of food trucks. It was so much fun to sit with the locals and enjoy inexpensive food in a very local environments. The backdrop of such an amazing structure added to the beauty of the experience!

    Good to buy cheap products. But many products are from India and Bangladesh. Check the tag before you buy. Bargain a lot upto 50%. Those who want Chinese food can have here.

    Overall good experience. However the management should place more signs for direction to the exhibition. Currently they emphasise too much on operation of the cafe.

    Well maintained Hindu temple didn't go inside but it is quite small. Good photography spot as the street isn't that busy.

    The most beautiful mosque in KL, I recommend everyone to visit it. There's also a lot of monkeys running around in the afternoon on the right side of the main gate.

    A lot smaller than expected, not much to do and surprisingly we didn't see that many restaurants...We visited late afternoon so possibly more happening in the evening? We walked around a bit; along by the coloured archways and up the street to the busy junction to see the Torana Gate. Recommend walking past to take a few photos at least. Located at a busy junction, there is also a large elephant monument/fountain at same junction.

    We visited during the day as we planned to visit some of the local temples. We had read that Sri Kandaswamy Temple is very similar to the one we visited in Chinatown but even larger. However we were very disappointed that this was closed and covered up on arrival. We also walked a long way out of the area to see Buddhist Maha Vihara but there was not a lot to see here and would not recommend. Both are to be reviewed separately.

    Little India was rather a let down for us. There wasn't much to see or do, nor did we find many restaurants. We did have a good meal at Chat Masala, which was sooooo cheap! (reviewed separately) So if ever in KL again we would return to visit Sri Kandaswamy Temple and have another meal. It is a distance from the city centre, over 20 minutes drive, but a Grab was only 16MYR back to our hotel (£3).
