    I’ve come close to visiting but have never made it and like many tourists, may not have visited the outskirts. I love night markets and those views are spectacular. Is there a time of the year that’s best for visiting?

      Thank you, Marcia and I’m glad you enjoyed this post and it inspired you to visit Kuala Lumpur. The best time of the year to visit is between May and July or between December and February

    I just thought KL is another South-East Asian city to visit with scyscrapers and huge buildings everywhere that doesn’t interest me much. I didn’t know it has so many things to offer, especially the waterfall, the traditional houses, the tribal village, and more. I would love to experience these and now, I guess I would increase the number of days of stay in KL in my Malaysia itinerary.

      Indeed it does, Shreya. It’s one of the most vibrant cities in Southeast Asia 🙂 I’m sure you’ll love your time in KL

    These are indeed some unique experiences, which I could never relate to Kuala Lampur. Specially the fishing village or the view from Bukit Tabur Hill and even the freely boat ride. Have been to Kuala Lampur plenty of times on a layover, but never explored the place. Looks like finally the time ha come to tick it off y list.

    What a fun trip this would be! I love how you include some really different and unique ideas of things to see and not just big tourist attractions. This is my kind of trip.

    Your post took me on a very nice tour to Kuala Lumpur. I’ve never been to Malaysia, so for me, every part of it is “lesser known.” Good to know that you can go on a jungle trek only 25 km away from Kuala Lumpur.

    Wow! Thanks for this post Daniel. I’m considering a trip to Malaysia and Singapore later in year or early next year and it would be awesome to check out these hidden gems.
    Bukit Tabur Hill, Forest Research Institute and Pulau Carey would be my top priorities in this list. I haven’t heard of these places earlier.

    This post is perfect for me because I’ve been to Kuala Lampur once and done all the typical touristy things to do. So I now need to know about the off beat stuff, and I absolutely love the idea of visiting a scenic fishing village! Also, tribal village sounds like a great place to explore and a firefly boat tour is right up my alley, I took once in the Philippines and absolutely loved it.

      I’m glad you liked it, Medha. I’m sure you’ll have a great time trying out some of the things on the list. The firefly boat was a mesmerizing experience.

    I’ve been to KL only a couple of times, and of course I’ve never visited, or heard about these places. I would like to visit some of the places, like the Moroccan Pavilion , Bukit Tabur Hills, and the Forest Research Institute next time I get a chance to visit KL. Thank you for bringing the hidden gem of KL to the surface.

    You convinced me to visit Kuala Selangor with the firefly boat ride. It sounds absolutely magical! And the Forest Research Institute looks and sounds so perfect for getting back in touch with nature.

    Thank you for sharing all these Kuala Lumpur secret attractions. You’ve got me with the waterfalls at Pisang River! So happy that it’s just 25km away from KL

    Hey Dan! I am a Malaysian and this is by far the most satisfying list I’ve read about Kuala Lumpur (KL, to locals) for a long time as you took time to explore all these nook-and-crannies in and around the city. I am hoping more needs to be done to improve accessibility and affordability to places like Sekinchan, Kuala Selangor and Carey Island because these places are absolute gems.

    I totally agree. Kuala Lumpur indeed has a lot of hidden gems. We were there last week and we had a great time. We totally enjoyed the firefly boat ride. It was a unique experience. Too bad we were not able to visit the Coliseum.
