One of them is Petronas Twin Towers, formerly the world’s tallest building. Also known as PJ, Petaling Jaya is a satellite city of Kuala Lumpur. It is located in the southwest of the city.

    Where to Stay in Malaysia

    Whether you’re looking for luxurious or mid-range hotels in Kuala Lumpur, colonial properties, no-frills hostels for backpackers, high-end resorts in Langkawi, family-run hotels, or a simple homestay in one of its villages, Malaysia has a lot to offer.

    Booking in advance, especially during the holidays or when there’s a festival, is a must in order to ensure you’ll have an accommodation. Not only is availability tight during these periods, but rates also rise so you have to factor that in your budget.

    While nightlife in Malaysia is more subdued than other destinations in Southeast Asia like Thailand, there are still many options for night entertainment. The heart of the action is located at Kuala Lumpur.

    Some sky/rooftop bars and lounges provide a perfect setting where you can enjoy a quiet nightcap. There are also clubs featuring international and local DJs if you’re up for a pumping party scene. You can also check out their fancy speakeasy bars or the colourful markets like Petaling Street that also comes alive at night.


    Malaysia Travel Tips

  • To avoid taxi scams, it is suggested that you hire a taxi by phone or at taxi stand at hotel lobby and shopping centres.

  • Taste local cuisine varying from Chinese to Malay delicacies on Alor Street in Kuala Lumpur.

    Very BAD hotel and service! Check in took 2 hours! So sloww. Room is very old and small, like a dorm room and so noisy. People talking until 4 am in the morning. Not recommended unless you want cheap and won't spend much time in the room.

    We came in heavy rain. To bad the lobby doesn't have any patio cover to prevent the rain. Our bags was wet. Maybe reconsider to add it. We stay during weekend. To bad during sleep time between 1am-3am, there were lot of noice from the street (people shouting, big exhaust sount from sports car).

    Berjaya Penang Hotel
    Late checked in around 11 pm and stay in the room at 12th floor. Everything just fine except for air conditioning which is not functioning well. A bit hot in the room. Since I checked in late and I was so tired so decided not to change the room.
