Wilayah Persekutuan Off The Beaten Path

  • Batu Caves

    Kuala Lumpur Off The Beaten Path

    This is an active religious site. At the entrance to the stairs leading to the cave opening, is the huge statue dedicated to Lord Murugan, a Hindu diety popular with Tamil Hindis. He is prayed to especially during Thaipusam, a Hindu festival celebrated at the Batu Caves, mostly by the Tamil. Besides the various festivals, several caves and shrines...

    Bukit (hill) Tabur (sprinkle) (or Bukit Taboh(fistfight), to some people) offers a chance for any climbers to see KL view. In fact, it is an ideal spot to enjoy fireworks play during new year or national day.(Apart from another mountain ; Gunung Bunga Buah, near Genting) It is an easy climb considering a six-year old kid could manage the route....

  • Genting Highlands

    Kuala Lumpur Off The Beaten Path

    A day trip 2 hrs east to Genting Highlands is one of the popular things to do in KL. We promised to take our young son Jesse to the massive Theme Park that we had heard so much about. On the way up the mountain we stopped at Chin Swee Temple and enjoyed the lovely ornate Chinese architecture and awesome views over the valley. This was the...

  • Sunway Lagoon

    Kuala Lumpur Off The Beaten Path

    we took a taxi from Ampang Park to Sunway, cost R30. Loved the waterpark, not busy, and lovely to cool off. Bought tickets online as works out cheaper that way. HOWEVER..once in you cannot get out and re=enter. We wanted to go to the mall for lunch as the options in the park were somewhat tired, however we were told we could NOT return to the...

    Kuala Lumpur Off The Beaten Path

    Patting Zoo is quite a common feature in many countries but most people in Malaysia haven't heard of one operating in Malaysia. Yes, there is one near Kuala Ganda. In fact, on a road that branches off from the approach to Kuala Ganda. It is on the road to Rengit where the Wildlife Department has its training institute. This place is name the...

  • Railway Stations

    Kuala Lumpur Off The Beaten Path

    This is the locotion for the finale of the film Entrapment (1999, starring Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta Jones). In the film, the station was refered to as Pudu Station but actually it was shooted here - Pudu Station is close to the city and not as big as this station. It was rumoured that the name had to be changed in the film since the actor...

    The National History Museum or Muzium Sejarah Nasional is the second national museum in Malaysia after Muzium Negara. It is located opposite Dataran Merdeka in Kuala Lumpur.

  • St. John's Cathedral

    Kuala Lumpur Off The Beaten Path

    Everytime I set foot for the first time in a certain place, I always find time to at least visit a church where I can say my thanksgiving prayer – for the blessing to travel and the safety of my journey. Like this church I found in Bukit Nanas, I was surprised to see a lot of my fellow countrymen when came here on a Sunday morning.

  • Merdeka Square

    Kuala Lumpur Off The Beaten Path

    National Day. I returned from Penang and 11:30pm just in time to see the crowds getting ready for the midnight fireworks near the Merderka Square. The lights and the mix of people near the Square & Sultan building were something else.

  • Chinatown

    Kuala Lumpur Off The Beaten Path

    This fresh market is located on Jalan Hang Lekir next to Hotel Malaya. The entrance is in between two florists. The best thing about this wet market is that you can find some local food in the hawker stalls inside. The best food to try here include: ice kacang, cendol, yong tau foo, curry noodle, chee cheong fun (Kampar style), etc. Just make sure...

    Putrajaya is where all the new federal administrative capital buildings are. The buildings are innovative designed and in harmony with the surrounding. Putra Mosque and Putra Square, The Prime Minister Office and residence, Palace of Justice, Dept of Civil Aviation buildings are all very magnificant. We even went to the entrance of the palace...

  • Ampang Temple

    Kuala Lumpur Off The Beaten Path

    At the Ampang old town centre has one eminent old Chinese-Buddhism temple which has these hanging joss-sticks in spiral shapes. I found it very attractive as photogenic subject especially to portray this less attention-getting town of Ampang. Ampang old town is not only about temple but many other things worth attention too. It has a LRT station,...

  • Reflexology

    Kuala Lumpur Off The Beaten Path

    Around Bukit Bintang there are lots of reflexology and massage places. I have read a bit about reflexology but up until now I have been disappointed with my experiences with it, which just amounted to a bit of foot rubbing. Finally though, in KL, I found a lady that really knows her stuff. I don't know a lot about it but the basis of reflexology...

    Oh Boy! You know when you watch F1 on TV; maybe sometimes you lower the volume? Well raise the volume at most then imagine the sound 70 times worse... Now maybe you can get the grip out of it ;o) It is actually a great feeling when the cars are racing by you, you will hear their engines all the time but when they pass you everything vibrates and...
