We decided to go in the late afternoon, wasn’t very hot, not many people so waiting time wasn’t more than 5 min.
Bought the ticket including 3D gallery. Had a very good time. Enjoyed the views.

Petronas Twin Towers

No trip to KL would be complete without a visit to the world's tallest twin towers. The skyscrapers are utterly stunning, particularly when illuminated at night. The Twin Towers Visit Operations is open Tuesday through Sunday and tickets are released at 8:30 a.m. on a first-come, first-served basis. To avoid disappointment, you can purchase your ticket in advance via online ticketing or at the Ticketing Counter, Concourse Level.

I am local in Kuala Lumpur. Recently decided to take my two young grandnephews to visit the iconic KLCC twin towers. We took the Skybridge tour.
Ticket counter opens at 0830. When I arrived at 0800 there was a short queue ahead.
The tour was handled by staff who are friendly and caring. I suggest the tour be a little more informative, like telling us something about the architecture, the construction experience and where we are looking at in the Kuala Lumpur skyline.
Once inside and on top, you feel the grandeur of this building.

Batu Caves

These impressive limestone caves are also used for Hindu festivals and pilgrimages.

Reviewed By Mpumemath - Durban, South Africa

Beautiful beautiful place. Prices are extremely reasonable, the Stuart friendly, the walk up the stairs was epic and I encourage anyone looking for fun and a little workout simultaneously! It’s beautiful, monkeys running around (don’t take bananas up unless you like monkeys). Stunning view and absolutely worth it! The final touch is the vendors when you come down that have fresh coconut! Loved it!

Sipadan National Park

Reviewed By James H - Noosa Heads

I know the boat is not the best but if you want to dive Sipadan every day as opposed to the very average Mabul it's your only choice.
Boat aside the service on the Celebes is fantastic. The diving is efficient and the food very good. A nice bunch of guys on the boat and Tony the dive master was perfect. On top of that the boat is very spacious (there were only six of us though)
As for the diving. It is of the highest order and as good as any place in the world.
Absolutely recommend but don't stay on Mabul. Imagine coming this distance and only diving this amazing place for one day.
When you dive every day you maximise your chances to see the highlights and even though we dived the same spots a few times each time was different. And you get to dive Turtle Cavern (awsome!)

Ipoh World at Han Chin Pet Soo

Ipoh World (IpohWorld) is an education-based, not-for-profit organisation established in 2004 to promote awareness and appreciation of Perak, the Silver State of Malaysia and its unique, diverse and rich heritage, with particular focus on Ipoh and the Kinta Valley. In 2006 we ran our first public exhibition "The Story of Ipoh: From Feet to Flight", in cooperation with Darul Ridzuan Museum. Since then, supported by sponsorship, we have run several more Exhibitions while continuing to seek further financial support for a permanent, lively and interesting heritage gallery for Ipoh, thus enhancing both education and tourism. This current project, our first permanent, museum quality exhibition is our first step to fulfilling this objective. Advance booking is recommended as space in the building is limited. You may book via our website by clicking on Exhibitions or by the QR Code on our brochure. It is quick and easy and you receive a booking confirmation by return.

Booked via website 30 minutes before stated tour time, got immediate confirmation via email. It was a very informative tour on the history of Hakka tin miners, why and how they came to Malaysia (it was because of their background & experience in mining in China), their life and history. Well worth the visit!

Turtle Sanctuary Beach

Reviewed By OS_HK1 - Hong Kong, China

Traveled in July with my family of 5. We were there to experience the Perhentian's world renowned diving and weren't disappointed. Some really great things to see but the best underwater scenery (IMO) was left to the snorkel excursion where we were taken to some popular sites. The coral at these sites was some of the best I have ever seen - probably because it was beyond the reach of most snorkellers depth but still very clearly seen from the surface.
The rooms at the resort are comfortable and functional and the cabins/rooms are pretty much right next to the beach (or within a few strides). The resort runs an independent turtle conservation program due to the amount of turtles that lay eggs on the beach. Although they have to return the large propertion of eggs to the Govt they are allowed to keep a small amount for incubating and eventual release back into the sea. It's a well run operation and appears to feature on some UK-based adventure programs as an option for teenagers/school kids to experience. This is great for the kids and raising awareness but beware that it means you may have to share the resort with a large group of school kids who are - in the main - well-behaved if a little excitable :-)

The beach is lovely. Fine white sand with great snorkelling right there with some local friendly black tip reef sharks, plus a floating pontoon a couple of hundred metres out that is great fun to swim to.
In all an enjoyable time and a pleasant stay.

Mulu Caves

Reviewed By Franc C - Portumna, Ireland

The trails and the wildlife spotting opportunities in Mulu are pretty good, but it's the caves you really come here for!
I couldn't recommend the advanced adventure caving tours here highly enough, but you won't be allowed to do them unless you have booked in advance and have some previous adventure caving experience... or are willing to do one of the parks intermediate adventure caving tours such as Racer or Stonehorse Cave on your first days at the park so the guide can assess your ability or lack thereof. Some visitors will not have the agility and fitness level required to participate in an advanced caving tour.
My favourite tour was the advanced Clearwater Connection tour. This 5km underground tour will take approximately 5-6hrs and involves tight squeeze's, traversing ledges and drops through two connecting caves (the stunning Cave of the Winds and the awesome Clearwater Cave). For the final 1.5km you can choose to either walk alongside the underground Clearwater river or allow yourself to be carried downstream by the flow of its shallow waters.
The Garden of Eden tour would be my second favourite. It's a full day 5-6hour 12km trek. It's a stunning walk and you get to see more of Deer Cave than you would on the standard show walk as you go all the way through the cave, wading through chest deep water at one point (see photo). The tour is vulnerable to cancellation by the guides in wet weather because of this river crossing. At the end of the tour you visit Lang cave, which is nice but underwhelming by the cave standards in Borneo. Then you have the choice to hang around for the bat exodus or head back to the park headquarters.
Tip: bring a spare torch, not just for the caves but also for the Night trail loop. As this is one of the shorter trails in the park you don’t need a guide to hike it. I seen more wildlife on this loop after dark than on any of the other trails in the park.

Deer Cave

Reviewed By Muhammad Robbi R

One of the biggest cave in the world, formerly the 1st biggest cave till they discovered a new one recently in 2014?. This is home to hundreds of thousands of bats and full of biodiversity such as spiders, crickets, snakes. Smells like bat-poop so be advised that coming out of the cave will definitely stain you with the smell. You can view the garden of eden at the end of the cave. Stay by outside by 5pm to view the Bat exodus, they travel in soundwaves!

Pinang Peranakan Mansion

Reviewed By Cheryl K - Regina, Canada

Upon the recommendation of the hotel we headed to the Pinang Peranakan Mansion - The Green Mansion which was very interesting.
It depicts the typical home of a rich Baba-Nyonya. The museum houses thousands of Peranakan artifacts which have been meticulously cared for over the years.
Our tour was very interesting and they did an excellent job on explaining the heritage of the Peranakan people. I would highly recommend it.
