The iconic Petronas Towers was on the list of our photo bucket list. Woke up after the sun rose up, a little late actually for a traveler who has a long list of places to stop by. Together with my family, we walked from our hotel, Pacific Regency Hotel Suites, to the bus stop where we could hop on and hop off to sight see around the city of Kuala Lumpur.
No line, no stress, no hassle by the bus stop. We managed to goof around with no one around watching us, or talking behind our back. Haha!
Will take you to a short trip around Kuala Lumpur through this photo dump post. I hope you don’t mind.
In about 15 minutes, KL Hop-on Hop-off
bus arrived. I asked mom where we were supposed to go. She answered me with a clueless face and an adventurous smile. Looked like we were on a spontaneous road trip in Kuala Lumpur
! Besides, the Hop-on Hop-off bus is the best way to keep up with our random and spontaneous city trip. Tourists who purchase a Hop-on Hop-off ticket are allowed to hop-on and hop-off as many times as they can at the various tour stops during the validity of the ticket. In our case, we purchased the 24-hour ticket
for each of us. The city tour bus runs from 9:00am until 8:00pm. We started at noon, which means our tickets were still good to go until the next day.
KL Hop-on Hop-off bus
is designed for tourists with an agenda to explore the wide city of Kuala Lumpur. The destination? All up to the tourist. The bus circles around and stops at 22 destinations. Our tourist friendly bus includes maps and sightseeing tours.
What makes it more tourist-friendly, a pre-recorded commentary in nine (9) languages (Bahasa Malaysia, English, Mandarin, Hindi, Arabic, Japanese, French, Spain and Tamil) and available by using headsets in the bus. “The guided tour is designed for tourists to experience the places of attractions and activities that authentically represent the stories and people of the past and present. The tour will also highlight the old and modern part of Kuala Lumpur that makes the city unique and vibrant.” (KL Hop-on Hop Off Website)
We stayed on the second floor, better view to take shots from the bus.
In the Philippines, we call it island hopping. In Malaysia, I call it mosque hopping!
The bus gave us time to go down and explore each stop. But if we want to spend more time in a certain stop, we could let our original bus leave and wait for the next Hop-on Hop-off bus, with intervals of 30 minutes.
Two-storey bus, what we need in Metro Manila
to accommodate more passengers one bus at a time.
Istana Budaya, Malaysia’s main venue for various kinds of theatre. Seems to me like Sydney Opera House where big concerts are held. May it be local or international, Istana Budaya is the home of musical and theatrical performances.
From the 22 designated stops, we chose to spend more time at the Petronas Towers
. Other than a fun photo shoot by the towers, the city malls surround the towers. What else to do but to stroll around and do what ladies love doing, shopping and eating!
