Every time we go to a new place, city or country, we will separately write down our bucket list for that place and put it all together. Not only does it get us excited for our trip, it really helps us to plan and organize where to stay, and when we should go where. Even if you’re not much of a planner when you travel, try getting a rough bucket list down and you’ll see immediately how it helps to plan out your trip.
Though we are Malaysians ourselves, we realized that there were a number of experiences and places we haven’t been to! So we decided to do a Bucket List (and be sure to tick them off) even for our own city.
As always, our list is a dynamic list so we’ll be crossing things off we go. And anything in yellow-gold is linked to a blog we wrote about the place, so click through to get the details!
Feel free to use this as your Kuala Lumpur Bucket List template as well; on your blog, social media, Pinterest, whatever! We would just ask for the credit mention and a tag/shout.
And if you’re planning your first trip to Kuala Lumpur or Malaysia, check our Kuala Lumpur Travel Guide curated for first-time visitors to the city and Malaysia. As Malaysians ourselves, our Kuala Lumpur Travel Guide for First-Timers covers all the need-to-knows and cultural nuances so you’re fully prepared to travel through this beautiful country.
