We've been lucky enough to travel through Kuala Lumpur several times with our kids and it is one of my favourite Asian cities. Kuala Lumpur is a destination of its own or a great stopover point if you want to head on the other parts of Malaysia such as Penang, Langkawi or Borneo. With a lively China town full of great shopping plus temples, mosques, a skytower, fantastic restaurants, lovely people and a range of day tours to islands and countryside its easy to understand why we love it.

We took the kids up the Petrona's Twin Towers these twin towers in Kuala Lumpur have a walkway between them where you can view the city. These stunning towers shine above the KL cityscape and really are spectacular particularly at night. Right out the front are pools and fountains set in a city garden that people are welcome to play in and relax.

We also spent an afternoon at Berjaya Times Square Theme Park Malaysia's biggest indoor theme park on the 5th  to 8th floor of Berjaya Times Square. The kids will love the roller coaster and if you are a bit of a shopper you'll find one of everything your heart desires in this shopping centre.

A trip to Buta Caves is a must to see these natural wonders there is a massive gold statue at the entrance which is quite amazing. But watch out for the monkeys they can get a little agressive if you have food even in your bags etc.

We drove a couple hours out of Kuala Lumpur to a place where the locals relocate and care for elephants. These elephants are ones that have wandered into villages and are trampling local farms. We got to spend an hour or more swimming in a jungle stream with two baby elephants. It was just our family; me, my husband and our kids. It was a truly amazing experience. The elephants were so playful filling there trunks with water and spraying us or wrapping their trunks around our arms and pulling us in.

There are also an array of markets both food and produce to explore and the colonial district offers plenty of interesting buildings and sights. The food in Kuala Lumpur is beautiful, a mix of Malay, Thai and Indian and its not expensive and you can buy from markets, street vendors or fine dine if you prefer.

There are also plenty of accommodation options for families, talk to your BYOkids travel consulant now 1300 296 543 and we can arrange your Malaysian family holiday.
