📌If KL tower top view - 60RM, if you looking for glass room (sky box), the ticket price will be 99RM.

Malaysia Tour Plan✈️

Day 1: Airport, Hotel & Twin Tower

Take sim card from airport and book airport taxi / grab / private tour taxi (in advance) to reach hotel (If you are booking a taxi before your arrival, you can go to hotel via Putrajaya with a photo stop). Once you reach hotel, keep the luggage in their safe room, refresh and then can have a city tour. City tour is something which gonna take you a 3-4hours tour through the KL City. Once finish, come back to hotel for check-in as Malaysia standard check-in time is 2 PM (Genting & some hotels 3PM). After you check-in, dress up and go for the awesome twin tower visit (day & night view), KLCC park and also water fountain with music and light show. Once you finish, come back to hotel.

Below is the video for your visual experience of twin tower.

Day 2: Batu Caves, Genting Highlands & KL Tower

You need to take grab again to go to KL Sentral in order to catch KTM train to Batu caves or else book grab to batu caves directly. It's 35mnts train journey through village area. The train is superb too. You can spend around 2-3hrs in batu caves and then come back to KL Sentral via KTM train. Then catch a bus to Genting Highlands at 20MYR. Its an awesome place with cable car experience and 17 degree climate with park (Both indoor and outdoor park - check my detail blog & vlog). If you wish to spend time in park, you need to spend your entire day in Genting highlands. I suggest you to spend time until evening to feel the chillness and also for awesome pics. 😀 Good to spend 3-4hrs minimum and if you visiting Chinese temple in between another 2hrs. (To reach Chinese temple need to take 9 escalators in between cable car, if taxi means you can go directly). Once you come back from Genting, we can visit KL Tower. It will be awesome to see KL city from top of KL tower. You can go by taxi or online taxi (grab). If you are tired, you can choose 3rd day morning to go for shopping in these areas.

(Some people use to hire one car to cover all these in one day. It's up to you)

Day 3 - Thean Hou Temple You must leave room early morning itself to get the refreshing feel of Thean hou temple and to have beautiful pictures as well. Spend 1-2hrs and then can move to nearby central market, China town for shopping of local items.

Now it's time for us to pack up things to travel back to airport to finish off the awesome tripping with lots of memories.
