Hi

I would agree with everything Awang says! That's pretty much what we did and had a great time. Cultural village show is also good, night markets are great, atmospheric and a great place to eat.

KK really is a great City, we stayed at the Meridien right on the waterfront in the middle of KK. Although it isn't a budget option it is cheaper that some of the resort type hotels and we loved being in the centre of everything!

Enjoy!

Lady, we share the same fav hotel, I have stayed in Meridien for 90% of my time in KK. I spent something like 2 - 3 weeks per year in KK for the last 7 years.

I just recall that some of the Seafood Restos have live cultural dance for its guests. Port View Resto almost directly opposite of Meridien have it every evening at 6am.

The night market is located close to Kampung Api. You need to bargain for best price.

Hi DaveLee354,

Have just checked their website. RM160 is for (Non Rafter).. Means you are not going to do Water Rafting?

Cheerz!
