Dan and I honeymooned on the Malaysian island of Langkawi. While Langkawi is beautiful, and we stayed in the most amazing overwater bungalow, the food scene on Langkawi definitely left something to be desired, especially compared to Kuala Lumpur (where we LOVED the food).
Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia located a 5 hour drive north of Singapore, has a population comprised of several cultures – all with amazing food – including Indians, Chinese, and Malays. As a result of the varied population, the food in Kuala Lumpur is excellent and, for whatever reason, much of it is casual and really cheap, making for a great vacation destination in my opinion. Before visiting Kuala Lumpur on our honeymoon, we booked a food tour with TK from Withlocals and it was one of our favorite food tours on the trip (we took 3…).
Dan & I visited the touristy Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia earlier this year on our honeymoon. The Batu Caves were pretty cool and definitely worth a visit for passing through Kuala Lumpur. While the caves were quite interesting and certainly worth a visit, I had trouble finding details about visiting online, so here you go – my thoughts on visiting the Batu Caves. Happy traveling!
Dan and I spent a quick 48 hours in Kuala Lumpur on our honeymoon earlier this year. It was our first trip to Kuala Lumpur and we both LOVED the city! It was easy enough to navigate, it had a distinct culture to experience, and it was relatively inexpensive!
Pahn Thai is a Thai restaurant on the premises of the Berjaya Langkawi and while its part of a private resort, Pahn-Thai is one of Langkawi Island’s most popular restaurants! Some may think its weird that a Thai restaurant is one of a Malaysian island’s most famous restaurants, but that’s totally normal because Langkawi is located just off the Malaysia/Thailand border. As such, even if you do not visit Pahn Thai, you try to have Thai food in Langkawi!
