Half of the top deck of the bus is open-air, allowing you to enjoy the night lights and scenery in KL with the wind blowing in your hair. Be careful though – it might rain, so carry an umbrella or a raincoat! But there are other areas of the bus that’s covered, so run inside when you start feeling a trickling on your skin.

After the tour is over, it’s time to go back to your beautiful hotel room to relax and refresh.


Day 2

8am: Dip in the pool

You paid for your room, might as well make the most of it. Have a swim in the pool to start your day! Of course, this is an optional step – if you want to laze around in the room, also can.

10am: Breakfast/brunch

Brunch is the best time of the day! Whether you’re full from the hotel breakfast buffet or you just woke up, there’s always room for coffee.

You don’t have to go far for great coffee and ambience – Lot 10 houses a hidden cafe on its rooftop, perfect for breakfast. Plus, finding the cafe is a mini adventure in itself!



Or, if you’re thinking of checking out a bit later, then let’s segue into the next part…


11am: Pasar Seni (Central Market) cafe-hopping

If you’re not so much of a morning person and you start your day late, then it’s time to check out of your hotel and start your exploration!

Besides Bukit Bintang, Pasar Seni is a heaven for cafe lovers. Pasar Seni is littered with charming cafes and street art. Just a day around Pasar Seni and you can now start calling yourself a cafe connoisseur!


Kaffe 16

An expansion of Beryl’s, Kaffe 16 is only a stone’s throw away from the Pasar Seni MRT exit. High industrial-like ceilings, giant doors and windows allow for a lot of natural light, giving you a perfect opportunity to take shots of your coffee.
