My Lazy Sunday in Kuala Lumpur

Taqtik International Manager, Paula Vernon regularly travels to Asia to meet with medical facilitators, hoteliers and surgeons. Her recent trip took her and Taqtik Client Manager Nikki Carlson to Malaysia, and she shares with us their experience in popular medical tourism destination Kuala Lumpur.
The Pavilion Shopping Center

Well I decided that my last Sunday here in KL I would share some of my favorite places with you.  Let’s start from a Saturday night with a walk over to the Food Court on the lower level at Pavilion Shopping Centre…. they were getting ready for Christmas….and this was only on one level!!! The food court on the lower level is absolutely filled with so many choices of different foods- Indian, Chinese, Penang Street Food, Teppanyaki, Malay, Japanese and so much more.  We decided on a yummy Japanese Restaurant, which is one of our favorites, so we ate sushi, tempura prawns and vegetables- delicious.

The Petronas Towers
Took a walk to the famous Identical  Petronas Towers for the night view – and a selfie.  The Petronas Towers, also known as the Petronas Twin Towers, are twin skyscrapers. According to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat’s official definition and ranking, they were the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004.
Bukit Bintang
We woke on Sunday to this stunning view of the city from our apartment in the heart of Bukit Bintang, where you have the opportunity to shop at places like: Pavilion-Malaysia’s premier shopping experience,  Lot 10,-which has an amazing food court on the lower level and Berjaya Times Square– which has Hotels and a Theme Park with a roller coaster!! Now for a great bargain my personal favourite is Sungei Wang Plaza. On the third floor there is an amazing Vietnamese café with an amazing Vietnamese crispy pancake. Also, on the main entry floor there are many optometry shops where you can have your eyes tested, frames and lens for 50 MYR which is approximately $18 (AUD).
Chef Low Dinner on Sunday night…. Chef Low at Bangsar.  The food is delicious and popular with locals and tourists alike.  The food I love to eat here is the steamed brown rice, silken homemade tofu and the sticky sweet Mongolian style spareribs
Petaling Street Markets
A great way to finish Sunday is a trip to the famous Petaling Street Markets – aka Chinatown Markets.  Here you will find all kinds of things and it doesn’t come alive until the evening.  These are famous markets that tourists have been flocking to for many years.  The thrill is in the haggling over the price of what you are wanting to pay!

A little bit more info… if you are a current holder of a UK, USA, Canadian Australian or New Zealand you do not need a visa to travel to Malaysia.  The local currency is Malaysian Ringgit and the weather is always warm/hot.   Malaysia….. truly Asia.  I love coming to visit!
