Interesting Blogs about Kuala Lumpur

If you are ever looking to get the inside scoop on a city, it is best to ask in-the-know locals, but if you are not keen on talking with them face-to-face (or afraid that the language barrier might hamper you), blogs are a good alternative. Posting up great stories on fantastic city sights both old and new, these passionate people are travellers too, which means they have the ultimate skinny for you on what exactly to explore and experience.

We have listed out some of our favourite bloggers who are dedicated to listing out Kuala Lumpur’s most excellent highlights – from new restaurant openings to great hotel reviews they give you their unadulterated take on things. P.S. if you are blogger we would love to hear from you too, so drop us a line and we’ll consider you for our listings.
