For two full days in Kuala Lumpur, you can have time to see almost all the most popular attractions, the description of which is found in guidebooks. Moreover, you can see everything slowly, using only public transport and on foot to move. You will have to use a taxi only if you are very tired, or just want comfort. Taxis in Kuala Lumpur are inexpensive, the main thing is to use only cars that work on a meter, and not at a fixed price (see for more information about Kuala Lumpur taxis and how to use them).
So, here is our version of the route, how you can spend two days in the capital of Malaysia:
Walking distance (20 minutes) or take a taxi to Independence Square (Merdeka Square). See the fountains there, the buildings around, you can visit the KL Gallery and take a picture with the letters "I Love KL", go to the Textile Museum.
Then go on foot to Jamek Mosque (Masjid Jamek), but on the way stop for lunch at one of the establishments along Jalan Parlimen street, there is also a small Burger King. Tourists can get to the mosque only from 14: 30 to 16: 30.
After visiting the mosque, take the Metro (Masjid Jamek station nearby) or taxi to KLCC station to view and take photos in daylight against the Petronas Towers, and stroll through KLCC park behind them. Or you can take another option – take a taxi or walk to Menara TV Tower, and climb to its observation deck. If you want to go up to the Petronas observation deck instead of Menara, keep in mind that you need to buy tickets in advance via the Internet, at least the day before.
After seeing the towers or Menara, it would be dusk. Take the subway, taxi, or free bus Go KL to Chinatown, where at nightfall on Petaling Street begins a brisk trade in everything you can. You can buy gifts and souvenirs here, and then have dinner in one of the street food courts.
If you still have the strength and time, you can walk or take a taxi again to Independence Square Merdeka Square, and take a walk there. In the evening it is very beautifully illuminated.
Early in the morning, get to the nearest KTM Komuter commuter train station, and go to Batu Caves. It would take half a day to get there, inspect them, and then come back.
From Batu Caves, take the commuter train to KL Sentral station. There you can eat in one of the cafes.
Take the free Go KL Red Line bus two stops to National Museum. There you can see everything in one hour.
After the museum, walk or again take the free Go KL Red Line bus one stop to National Mosque. Tourists are allowed to enter it from Monday to Saturday in 09:00 - 12:00, 15:00 - 16:00 and 17: 30-18: 30.
After visiting the mosque, walk or take a taxi to Chinatown again, but continue through it to Central Market. So you can buy interesting souvenirs or handicrafts, and just the market is a historical place.
And you can finish the evening again near the Petronas Towers. You will have to get to them by taxi, or walk 10 minutes to Masjid Jamek metro station. The view of the illuminated Petronas and the Menard TV tower is magnificent, but that's not all. Pass through the Suria KLCC Mall between the towers and you will come to the Artificial Lake Symphony Lake, where in the evening at 20:00, 21:00 and 22:00 There is a color music Fountain Show. After that, you can walk around the Suria shopping center, and have dinner there in a food court, cafe or restaurant.
