Travel Guide to Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur and Terengganu)

Travel Guide to Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur and Terengganu)

In this travel video travel guide to Malaysia, I travel to Malaysia’s capital city, Kuala Lumpur, and to Terangganu, the country’s second-largest city.

I start off my trip by exploring Kenyir Lake, located just west of Terangganu, which is actually the largest man-made lake in Southeast Asia (it’s the size of Singapore). I head to the far end of the lake by speedboat to go trekking into the hilly jungle where I come across a school of hungry fish waiting for eager tourists like myself to provide them with a cheap snack. I then head back on the lake to explore the many islands that call this lake home.

Next, I head back onto the water — this time onto the ocean — to do a little squid jigging as part of the first annual Terengganu International Squid Jigging Fest. Squid jigging, for those of you that don’t know, is the act of fishing for squid by hand with a line and hook, something I have questionable skill doing.

Back onto dry land, I explore the market in Terangganu, one of the best places to find fresh seafood in the entire country, and try some of the region’s favorite desserts and iced coffee.

For the second half of the video, I head east to the capital city of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, where I — what else? — find some street food in the famous Chow Kit neighborhood, followed by a little more food in Kampung Baru, a sleeping Malay enclave flanked by the city’s downtown tower.

I then take the monorail (!) to explore the Petronas Towers and the KL Tower, two of the city’s most famous landmarks, followed by dinner in Jalan Alor, the city’s famed outdoor street food district.

Finally, it’s time for a little rest and relaxation back on the west coast of Malaysia at the island of Redang, one of the country’s most beautiful tropical islands, where I get to experience what beach life is like in Malaysia.

Great video highlighting the beauty of our country, plus it'd make a good guide for travellers too! Don't mind me adding my two cents worth but there's an app that can help you make the most of your travel cash when exchanging currency in KL. You probably don't realise that exchanging your currency with the correct money changers could save you a lot of hard earned travel money – up to 30% in fact! Check out CurrenSeek to compare on the ground rates and find the best money changers around you: [link to website/download app?] I think it's a travel must-have that can make a lot of a difference to your travel budget and save you the hassle of running around comparing and looking for reasonable rates.

Amirul Asyraf says:

I recommend you to go to Penang in the northern part of Malaysia, and try their nasi kandar and asam laksa while you're there. Also try and visit Melaka. Also good food and a lot of historical buildings. Anyway, good video dude and welcome to Malaysia. Owh and new york city is in my bucket list. Can't wait to go there someday.
