You can use HostelWorld to find cheap accomodation near center and China town. Kuala Lumpur is a great city to walk, it's clean and the big park is a nice place to go running. You can also visit the bird and butterfly park. Enjoy this great city!

Rotch you are a new poster here. You might want to take a little look around the website you are actually using and see that this site too has an accommodation booker equally good as Hostelworld. The small commissions this site makes from people booking through here helps to run the forum you are using.

This is a bit of a stretch if you're on a budget, but staying around KLCC is really awesome. You're literally in the heart of the city, walking distance to all the major landmarks/attractions of KL's city centre. If you're into shopping (I personally am), you have to go visit Suria KLCC mall, Pavilion mall, Bukit Bintang etc. I was at Fraser Place Kuala Lumpur, a service apartment last month, the rates were okay and the malls are all a 10-15 minute walk away.

Thanks for the advice Jasmin01, It's good to understand a bit about the city of KL and the surrounding areas. To Travelwander. I will certainly take heed of your recommendations for places to shop! I do like to pick up a few bits and bobs to take back home, so I will have a look at those malls. I've also heard that Sungei Wang & Lot 10 are good places to visit, as they don't have too much branded items.

I did manage to find a few places in which to lodge in KL. I've booked 3 places in different areas, so that I could soak up as much of the city as possible. So KL Sentral fro the first few days, then close to Maluri, then finally bukit bintang.

Thanks for your kinda advice!

You booked a place close to Maluri? Hmm... not sure if that's a good location for a visitor to stay. Where exactly is that place?

Hi Hien, I know that it is rather far away from the centre, but I wanted to mix things up a bit. I'm only there for 3 days any way.

In your opinion, why wouldn't it be a good place for a traveller to stay?

It's quite close to the station, so in essence it makes getting around easy, plus the place had great reviews from many travellers.

Like you mentioned, it's a bit far away from the central. Plus the rail line is not exactly the one which visitors to the city would get on mostly because many attractions (and the Central Station) are on the other lines. But then, all it takes is a change to those lines.

I just read your post again and realised that you'd be staying in two other places in the centre. So I guess a bit of mix could be nice if that's what you want. One thing to remember though: the train lines closes at about 23:30, last bus at about 23:00, and there is no night bus service like London. So better get back by 23:00 or prepare to pay a lot more for a taxi. :)
