Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia is definitely the main hub for numerous flights out of Europe and U.S. to SE Asia. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that so many people go to it for business and functions including weddings/holidays. Even one of my friends fell in love with the country and selected Kuala Lumpur as the place for her wedding ceremony to consequently, fly over to Thailand for their honeymoon getaway.
You can always find an accommodation style and interior design that will perfectly suit your tastes. But the main issue here, if you’re thinking about a quality hotel in Kuala Lumpur, the location should be taken into consideration as well.
Malaysia’s most popular city, Kuala Lumpur, is a must if you are flying to Southeast Asia. It might be well-known for its food, or multicultural diversity but it is usually a tricky place to get around. This is because of the horrible traffic, usually occurring around peak time. Hence, finding just the right place to lodge is significant whatever your reason could be; business related, leisure time or even a special celebration like a wedding ceremony or honeymoon.
Travelling around Kuala Lumpur, can be particularly different from other main South East Asian cities, for example, Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh where any brave tourist can get on the back on a scooter and zoom through the heavy traffic. The most common rides are public transports and taxis. Should you be trying to get back to your hotel in KL at rush hour in a car, you might be in for an endless wait.
When booking a hotel, you might be quite possibly looking more around the city centre regions of KLCC and Bukit Bintang. This would give you a better access to more food variety, shopping options, activities and better entertainment. My suggestion would be to look more in the central location which greatly lessen travel time and, at the same time, you should ensure that you are in a quality hotel! My favourite place to stay is in or near Jalan Ampang which provides you accessibility to malls such as KLCC and Pavilion.
If you like shopping then you will most definitely love Kuala Lumpur. The best part is that Malaysia is packed with malls so go to this list of top 10 malls you should drop by, all within 10 minutes of the city centre. Inclusive of everything, you will have you need for a fun packed day of shopping: http://www.kuala-lumpur.ws/klshopping/top-10-shopping.html.
Kuala Lumpur might be lively, vibrant city, however, nature is not scarce. Nestled close to the city centre, KL Bird Park or the FRIM nature Reserve and many others deserves a visit especially if its nature you are looking for.
Malaysia can be quite affordable for many, particularly so, when compared to the Europe or the U.S. The only downside that you may encounter is the high prices of alcohol. If you the reason you are flying over is not solely for tourism but more along the lines of event planning. Then you are thinking of the right place! Venues for banquet hall, wedding receptions and even wedding planning services are easily accessible and, that too, at a very low cost.
