Customer Travel Tip: Sunway Lagoon on tuesdays! On some tuesdays its only 50 RM instead of 120. All the standard touristy stuff is great too, but don't do them between 1-3, because it's way too hot.

Liked: My family lives there. The shopping is great and I absolutely love the Sunway Lagoon swimming pool.

Disliked: Traffic jams. Taxi's are cheaper than the monorail, but you're bound to get stuck in traffic near Bukit Bintang.

Customer Travel Tip: Always keep a third eye open when going by foot, because of the traffic. Also, keep in mind that no matter what you do, you will sweat all the time because of the humidity. So, dress smart.

Liked: KL is a really unique place for europeans and it has much to offer - a hustle-n-bustle asian city, skyscrapers, markets, nightlife, food, and a great green area aso.

Disliked: The traffic and getting around the city by foot. Also, the motorcyclists on the pavements were quite annoying. KL is definitely not for relaxing.
