Locations for photography lovers in Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur is one of the major cities in visited in the South East Asian region. It is a colourful city, full of culture.

There are many photo opportunities to avail of when visiting. So grab your camera and have a look of some great locations I found in the city, I found to photograph.

The Petronas twin towers

Possibly the most iconic landmark in Kuala Lumpur. The twin towers stand proudly as part of the cityscape. In fact, if you search Kuala Lumpur online, these towers will come top of the image search results. The towers are visable from many places in the city. We stayed in an apartment further out of the city, and the above photo was our view from the balcony.

Getting up close to the towers will also give you a great perspective.

Make sure you stick around until the evening (around 7pm) where the fountains outside come alive with colour.

KL Tower

The KL tower is the slightly shorter sister of the twin towers, standing 30m below them, but still a prominent feature of the city skyline.

The KL tower too can be pictured from many locations in the city, and you can even visit the top ‘sky deck’ for a view over the city.

The Batu Caves

The Batu Caves are located north of the city, and from KL Sentral station it will take approx. 30 minutes on a train. On the day we visited however it took over 1.5 hours due to works on the line, so it may be easier to use a grab car.

The Batu caves are accessed via 272 steep steps. As I write this, they have now been painted bright multi-colours.

There are a number of unique hindu features to capture once at the caves. Make sure you watch out for the cheeky monkeys, and dress appropriately (girls: cover your shoulders, and no shorts).

The KL Central Market

The KL Central Market is one of the oldest markets in Kuala Lumpur, and is full of a number of stalls with antiques, collectables and souvenirs.

It is a great location for photographs, with the nearby fruit market. Here you will find a number of exotic fruits incuding the smelly durian and mangosteen.

Cultural buildings
The Sultan Abdul Samad Building, Kuala Lumpur

There are a number of museums and temples and unique cultural buildings in the city, which make for great pictures.

This was my third visit to the city, and I loved reminising about past trips, as well as capturing new memories with my husband.
