kuala lumpur family vacation

Our family trip to Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru was taken place in 2014, but I want to re-write it, at least, it can be a reference for people who might need it.

The trip to visit this one culture country took place from January 22-25, 2014. I called it one culture country because between Indonesia and Malaysia had the same culture, namely Melayu/ Malaya and many descendants from Indonesia who resided in Malaysia, and even said that there was a government control in Malaysia.
Here’s our itinerary while in Malaysia.

Day # 1 KLCC (Petrosains & Aquaria)

We depart from Jakarta by Air Asia with a promo price of IDR 100,000 / USD 7 per seat, very cheap. There is not much difference between Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur, as the State Capital City. The Malaysian Government Center itself located in Putra Jaya.

In Kuala Lumpur we stayed 2 nights at V’la Garden Hotel, No. 170 Jalan Pudu Kuala Lumpur Malaysia 55100, the current rate of IDR 776,000 / USD 54 for 2 nights.

1. Petrosains KLCC – Educational tours for children

Like the information listed on Petrosains official website, for admission tickets are:

Adult (13 – 60 years) RM 28.00

Child (3 – 12 years) RM 16.50

For Non-MyKad holder.

Petrosains is similar to the Pusat Peragaan IPTEK Taman Mini Indonesia Indah Jakarta. It contains informative and educational games for children. I think its more complete here than in Taman Mini Indonesia Indah.

2. Aquaria KLCC

At Aquaria KLCC there are 283 species on display. But it’s not so impressive, Indonesia also has a similar place called SEA WORLD located in Ancol, North Jakarta. But never mind, we still can take a few photos here.

Hola senora…

3. Central Market

Central Market is located at Jalan Hang Kasturi, City Center, 50050 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Central Market was built in 1888 and initially served as a wet market. Since then the place is considered a Historic Building.

Many tourists visit the Central Market to shop for various Malaysian handicrafts, arts, kebaya, songket, and souvenirs. We visited Central Market in the afternoon and just bought it by and tasted snacks there

My itinerary in Johor Bahru will be written into a separate post.
