Southeast Asia always come to mind when people want to travel and Malaysia is one of the top destinations people usually visit.

Hufftington Post published an article of two digital nomads who went on a journey in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Being a wanderlust that they are, living like a tourist is not an option. So, they made a list of cool places to do in KL based from their experience: "How to live like a local."

Coffee shops

If you're a digital nomad or remote worker, a stable wifi connection is a must and a good cup of coffee wouldn't hurt either. Hipster cafes are everywhere nowadays and KL isn't left behind in this bandwagon. The pair suggested a few cafes namely, Feeka for baristas with photographic memory, and Lepaq Lepaq for a cotton candy coffee sweetener.


Flocking with locals, KLCC Park is located at the base of Petronas Towers where you can bring some snacks and drinks while getting chill.

Authentic Malaysian Dining

When in Malaysia, you should eat Malaysian food. Lot10Hutong is found beneath the Malaysian capital crawling with endless Malaysian comfort food.

Two Blocks Off the Strip

Bukit Bintang is a total tourist trap! So, the pair wants people to walk just two blocks away from the strip, in any direction that's field with authentic local restaurants and bars.


Capping the night off or the night is still young? Don't worry, Kuala Lumpur is filled with bars and clubs that comes to life at night. If you want to party all-night, better try Zouk which comes with a complimentary drink. For a chill night-out, you can try a rooftop Mojito bar named Negaba KL.

However, there's nothing wrong with checking out and doing 'touristy' things at all. So, here's a list from Huffington Post for a usual travel-must while in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

  1. Petronas Towers
  2. Batu Caves
  3. KL Tower
  4. Petaling Street Market
  5. Sunway Lagoon
  6. Aquaria KLCC
  7. Bukit Bintang
  8. Islamic Arts Museum
  9. Kuala Lumpur Bird Park
  10. National Mosque of Malaysia
