Kuala Lumpur itinerary

Jump to last reply

I will be flying into Kuala Lumpur on November 2nd. I'm trying to plan how long to stay before flying back out. My tentative itinerary is the following:
November 2: Fly in (afternoon), Petronas Twin Tower (mostly wanting to see the building, not too concerned about going up), Jalan Alor at night for the night market.
November 3: KL Bird Park (also near the Butterfly Park, which I could visit if it's worth the trip), Central Market (mostly interested in looking around and not buying many things), and Chinatown evening/night to look around and see the night market
November 4: Aquaria KLCC and Little India (very interested in the Little India Night market on Saturday)
November 5: Day trip from Kuala Lumpur. I heard about waterfalls that sound interesting, or an elephant park, or Melaka (spelling?). I don't know which I prefer...
November 6: Batu Caves. I don't want to visit during the weekend, because many sites say it is very crowded then.
November 7: fly out
My questions are the following: is this itinerary too much? Should I extend my trip? What day trip would you recommend for November 5? How much should I plan on budgeting for the trip, excluding flights and accommodation? Also, if I wanted to see the Sultan Abdul Samad Building (I heard it looks best in the evening), which day should I try to go? Are there any recommendations for my trip, such as adding or subtracting some items from the list or advice about transportation?
About me: I like nature and history and culture, so I love seeing places with lots of culture. I'm not big on buying things, but I love window shopping (but not really posh places). I am in my early twenties (female), and will be traveling alone. I've lived in Korea and visited Japan and Taiwan, but this will be my first solo trip. I like night markets, but my family is also worried about my safety being alone in a foreign country, especially at night.
Thanks for the help!!
