Kuala Lumpur

Are you coming to the capital of Malaysia? Done your research elsewhere, but still do not know where to go to find the best places to take good pictures? Well check out these next few places recommended by local photographers from Kuala Lumpur.


Petronas Twin Towers

At a height of 451.9 metres, Petronas Twin Towers is Kuala Lumpur’s crown jewel. Consisting of eighty-eight-storeys, it is the tallest twin tower in the world. The mid-level skybridge which links the two towers, is also the world’s highest 2-storey bridge. But the best pictures you can arguably take is at the bottom of the building. Make your way to the KLCC Park nearby, and you can take a picture postcard worthy image with the Twin Towers as a backdrop.




Petaling Street

A well-known shopping district, Petaling Street was once known to be the centre for the production of tapioca flour in the past. Here, you can spot lanterns hanging across shopping streets and hawkers selling their wares, especially at night. Locals come here primarily for bargain shopping and good Chinese food, but it also serves as a great place to do an unforgettable photoshoot.



Putra Mosque

Also known as The Pink Mosque because of its pink dome, it is the second oldest mosque in Malaysia and is said to be constructed with rose-tinted granite. The mosque is modeled after Persian Islamic architecture with elements derived from other Muslim cultures. The basement wall of the mosque also resembles that of the King Hassan Mosque in Casablanca, Morocco. Though not necessarily a tourist destination, you can drop by to take pictures in it. But be sure to dress appropriately and obey to the customs and rules of the mosque, as it is also being used as a place of worship. Definitely worth the trip here.


KL Forest Eco Park

The KL Forest Eco Park is one of the oldest permanent forest reserves in Malaysia, and is the only remaining stretch of tropical jungle within the city limits of Kuala Lumpur. Not necessarily the most accessible destination via public transport, it is still a magical place to escape the hustle and bustle of KL. With the KL Tower in the backdrop and a 200 metres canopy walk, it is a fantastic place to do a photoshoot especially if you have a drone camera.




Thean Hou Temple

The Thean Hou Temple is one of the largest Chinese temple in South East Asia and was built by the Hainanese to dedicate to Tian Hou, a goddess said to protect fishermen. The main temple hall is decorated with dragon-inspired columns and pagoda rooftops and the temple’s design combines elements from Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism. A must visit for any traveller visiting Kuala Lumpur, this unique architecture will definitely add variation to your picture collection.
