Kuala Lumpur | Malaysia Vol.1

As an Malaysian that live in the city of Kuala Lumpur , Have you Really pay a visit on the heritage site like Tourist do ?

Me or most of the people from the city always visit others country UNESCO Site , Heritage area , Food hunting and Shopping but Didn't explore our own city where we live . In Kuala Lumpur , There was no UNESCO Site to visit but have Heritage area , great Malaysia cuisine foods and Huge shopping mall around . Malaysian afraid of hot weather and will get frustrated when comes to sweating but not all , just part of them . On the hot sunny day of the afternoon in the city , everyone will be walking around at any shopping mall nearby . Since i'm staying in Kuala Lumpur for so long , I decide to create a full day Itinerary on Kuala Lumpur One day trip Exploring with a gang of friend by using only public transportation . Early Sunday in the Morning before the sunrise , we started our Journey from Lembah Subang LRT Station direct to Pasar Seni LRT Station . Most of the public transport here are using Touch 'n' Go card or Cash , It was a convenience pay System card . Mostly Using by locals or foreigners in the city .

It consists of RM10 deposit value and RM10 usage amount . The cards may be reloaded at any store that stat the Touch 'n Go logo . Touch 'n Go card is not only for toll fare but also parking services, public transport, theme park and cashless payment at retail outlets .
