This is similar to the one I suggested in the thread Kuala Lumpur.

  • Batu Caves - a must see
  • Chinatown
  • Petronas Towers - the night view is a must! go during the day too, if you have the time. pass to the skybridge is free, go there early (8am) to get the passes as it's limited - first-come first-served. bridge is closed on Mondays.
  • KL Tower (malay: Menara KL)
  • KL Bird Park (largest covered birdpark in the world - recommended)
  • Bukit Bintang area (a shopping haven - 7 shopping complexes in a radius of 300m!)

To be honest, with one day you would have enough,
I did Chinatown and Petronas Towers (the Towers are amazing)
But my fav was the Bukit Bintang area, about 7 huge shopping centers all within the same area. I guess, your girlfriend would enjoy the shops more than youI couldnĀ“t get out of the shops

The things Hien suggested are very good and like was said do not miss seeing Batu Caves. If it means missing other stuff out, still see Batu Caves, but be sure not to bring a plastic bag with food in it unless you want a monkey to run up and steal it out of your hand. That happened to someone when I was there and they had a banana in the bag! Quite funny seeing it happen.

You can also try 1/2 day trip to Kuala Selangor to see fireflies. Trip costs around 195 ringgit. Trip start at 3:30 p.m. and you will be back at your hotel till 11 p.m.

Try Putrajaya city. You can go for great day cruise and get some great views of the structures over at the administrative centre. Place to visit include the Putrajaya Mosque, Taman Warisan Pertanian (you can get to taste the varieties of tropical fruits), the Perdana Putra Bridge near the Ministry of Finance, Taman Putra Perdana at Shangri-La Putrajaya (for a view of the admin city from top of the hill), the Wetlands, to have some bird watching) as well as the Prime Minister's Office building. Within the KL city, Chinatown is good for some budget shopping and chinese food, KLCC for the twin tower view, KL Tower, Merdeka Square to view the Sultan Abdul Samad Building and the Bird Park. Bukit Bintang with numerous shopping malls and eateries as well as budget stay at the adjacent Tengkat Tong Shin or Alor Street. You may also want to check out the chinese Thien Hou Temple within the city vicinity. Kuala Selangor is also recommended for the one of its kind "fireflies" but its rather far from KL city. You can engaged Reliance tour agency for a day trip there. I recommend you spend a day for the KL city tour and the second day to either Kuala Selangor or Putrajaya. Enjoy your trip.

How far is Batu Caves from KL? How do we get to Batu Caves from KL Sentral?

cuddleme, Batu Caves can be easily reached by bus N11 from Bangkok Bank (near Masjid Jamek, not so far from KL Central). As far, as I remember, it will take about 30 minutes and costs 2 ringgits.
