One day for any city is very small, especially for the capital. Therefore, if you want to see as much as possible, and get maximum impressions, stock up. Moving on this day will be most comfortable and convenient by taxi, but in fact it is not always faster, and sometimes some places can be reached faster on foot or by Metro, while the car will be in traffic jams. Therefore, if you study Kuala Lumpur transport system and how to use it, you can do without a taxi.
So, what and how to see in Kuala Lumpur in 1 day:
Start the route in the picturesque area Chinatown. It will be especially good if you stay in a hotel somewhere in this area (see in which area of Kuala Lumpur is better to stay). Walk around the area and visit Sri Mariamman and Sze Ya Temple.
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 walk to Masjid Jamek. On the way, you can 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 the mosque, take the Metro (Masjid Jamek station is nearby) or take a taxi, and reach KLCC station to see Petronas Towers and take a photo against their background, walk 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 Go KL bus to Chinatown, where a brisk trade in everything you can begins at nightfall on Petaling Street. 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 back to Independence Square, and take a walk there. In the evening it is very beautifully illuminated, you will get excellent evening photos.
