In Kuala Lumpur for four days in Sep-2014. Any suggestions as to what to do or what to see?

I tend to base any stop in KL around food...

-Brickfields/Little India for Tamil delights

-Bangsar/Kampung Baru for Malay treats

-Chow Kit & Pudu markets for fresh fruits

For something offbeat, a visit to the new administrative centre of Putra Jaya can be quite surreal. It's like a space-age ghost town. I once stayed in a hotel of several hundered rooms, and was the only guest. Their top suite was only fitted with a retractable hose shower-head in the bathtub. From this to the wacky, oversized monuments, everything seems not quite right (or finished). Entertaining for some!

Spot on all around, Putra Jaya is a really cool place to see, as well as all the food reccomendations.

I would reccomend having breakfast at the Grand Hyatt one morning, great views of the twin towers and one of my favourite buffet breakfasts in south east asia.

Putrajaya is interesting in a different way, mainly the false starts and dashed dreams of the nineties, but KL's much more fun if you can get someone to take you around places like Petaling Jaya and Klang. Of course, you'll need a car or you'll either spend a lifetime waiting for public transport or a fortune on taxis.

The inner areas are interesting too, with Brickfields, Bukit Bintang and Chow Kit offering nice places to explore.

KL Tower and Petronas tower are good.  Selangor factory for silverware.  Plenty of malls for shopping.

Malls are good. I recommend Suria KLCC and the Bukit Bintang group, but if you're willing to head west, The Curve (Damansara Mutiara) and One Utama (Bandar Utama) are good too.

If you have friends/family/contacts in KL, it gets much more interesting.

Batu Caves is another good option to visit.

Traders Hotel Rooftop bar. If you'r a guest you can snag a day bed and lounge all day, but can get access otherwise for a drink at night - be prepared for amazing views over petronas towers.
