7 Hidden Gems in Kuala Lumpur to be Discover!

12:30:00 PM

When comes to talk about the attractions in Kuala Lumpur, I couldn't believe myself for only knowing KL Tower and KLCC. Shame to admit that, a person living in Kuala Lumpur for more than 5 years now, and all I can explain to peoples are my travel experiences abroad but nothing about Kuala Lumpur!

Well, its never to late to explore a city especially when I'm living in it :) A big thanks to Tourism Malaysia for bringing such a good project namely 'About KL', I had so much fun understanding more about KL!

Things to know about Kuala Lumpur and the 7 hidden gems that I found in Kuala Lumpur for the first time ever, which I think that, we, as a Malaysian, should really pay a visit!

1) Coliseum Cafe

95 years of Good Old Taste, established in 1921, Coliseum Cafe & Grill is one of the oldest in the country and is a walk down memory lane in KL in the early 1920's. It's one of the best examples of the city's colonial heritage.

The old furniture and decorative memorabilia creates a wonderful nostalgia feeling, and are preserved from when it was first opened in the 1920s when at that time, the Coliseum was the finest cafe & grill room in Malaysia.

It's like a step back in time - dark wood saloon doors take you into the bar; delightfully worn tiled floors and antique furniture characterize this atmospheric restaurant and bar, which is undoubtedly a KL institution.

Located in the iconic Panggung Bandaraya building, built at the turn of the twentieth century, was one of the first few structures constructed to mark the new city of Kuala Lumpur. Hence it is fitting that the tale of Kuala Lumpur be staged at this heritage site.

A vibrant cultural musical of the history of Kuala Lumpur. Enjoy and experience the theatrical magic, a breathtaking sensory feast, and deep in the heart of it : a Malaysian story with a strong emotional connection to the people of yesterday, today and tomorrow.

If it wasn't for this show, I wouldn't have know about how Kuala Lumpur survived through The Great Fire and The Great Flood back in 1881, and transforming into the metropolis it is today!

5) KL Tower Mini Zoo

Honest speaking, I am not a zoo person because I think that every zoo has the same animal and gives me same experience, not until I'd visited KL Tower Mini Zoo, I changed my mind and perception about zoo :)
