Merdeka Square is the historical landmark in Kuala Lumpur. It's great place to have a walk and take photos. Around this field are the most interesting buildings.
Merdeka Square itself isn’t that interesting, it’s mainly a large patch of grass with a fountain and one of the world’s largest flagpoles, but the surrounding streets have a lot of older, historical buildings, including the Sultan Abdul Samad Building.
Within a few short blocks you’ll encounter a variety of architectural styles that make this area worth wandering around.

One of the best ways to experience local culture is by visiting a market. This is actually easier said than done in KL as they night market is constantly moving. In order to create a high demand, the market has a rotating schedule of where it will be held and when.
Batu Caves Sri Subramaniam Temple, Kuala Lumpur 68100, Malaysia
Batu Caves is a limestone hill comprising three major caves and a number of smaller ones. The cave is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India.
There were a lot of tourists at Batu Caves but not too many on the 272 stairs that led up to the temple. The steps aren't very wide and the incline is slightly steep so if you have bigger feet it might be harder to keep your balance.
We took the train to KL Sentral station then switched to the KTM Komuter line towards Batu Caves (RM 2). The journey took about 40 minutes and the train was empty, new, and nicely air conditioned.
We made it to the top in about 20 minutes with a detour in the middle to see the wild monkeys at the entrance of a cave on the left. You won't miss the cave because during the hot walk up there will be a sudden drop in temperature emitted from the dark cave.

This building was once an actual wet market and is now a designated as a Malaysian Heritage Site.
Inside you’ll find lots of unique shops and stalls selling souvenirs, art, and local products, but they’re all of a much higher quality than what’s found at Petaling. You can still try haggling here, although you probably won’t get prices down by much.
