This post was due at least 2 weeks ago. I had a couple of work colleagues who had planned to visit Kuala Lumpur on their way back from New Zealand to London. As I haven’t actually lived properly in KL, I’ve decided to ask Nadwah, a friend who knew KL very well. I was well amazed with the email she sent me detailing out places that might be of interest to the first time visitor to Kuala Lumpur and Malaysia generally.
Since her itinerary was very comprehensive, I’ve decided to cut and paste the whole email into this post. I’ve also translated some of the Malay language which was written in the email here. The whole idea is to enable the first time visitor to get a good grasp of how life is in Malaysia generally. There is a mix of architecture, culture and a bit of nature thrown in the 4 day itinerary.
Dinner at Kampung Baru. The last time I was there, I’ve dined at a fantastic Thai restaurant called Sukhumvit.
How are ya? Anyway, below are some of my suggestions for you.

3. Dinner at Ampang Lookout Point. Seriously, the food is very average but the view is to die for! You need to arrive probably around 6:30pm to catch the sunset view + to beat the crowd as well.

3. Dinner at Aroma Ikan Bakar Jeram, it has a sea view http://www.facebook.com/pages/Aroma-Ikan-Bakar-Pantai-Jeram-Kuala-Selangor/196658987045182 Great place because you can choose what you wanna eat and it’s fresh!
