This short walking tour in Putrajaya is not really the kind of tour you’d like to join. I did it without a tour guide nor a map on hand. I did it because I like walking and I want to see what’s beyond the Putra Masjid, a landmark you shouldn’t
Going inside the Pink Mosque in Putrajaya is one experience you’ll never forget too soon. It’s incredibly stunning in there! Yep!

Sri Mahamariamman is the oldest temple in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia). The temple’s inception can be traced back to 1873, but it underwent a major re-construction in 1968. One of the most visible changes is the Raja Gopuram tower at the entrance. As soon as I saw the tower, I knew
Inside the Islamic Arts Museum in Kuala Lumpur, you will find comprehensive collections from the Islamic world. It is filled with anything you want to know and related to the Islamic religion, its history, doctrine, and arts. I really think that every visitor in the city should visit this gem

The Expressionz Hotel Kuala Lumpur has a Sky Pool With amazing views of Kuala Lumpur. It’s not even that far to the center of KL but twenty-eight minutes walk. The selling point of this hotel is, I think, the infinity pool that graced the Instagram pages of influencers and wannabes.
Masjid Jamek Mosque is a wonderful refuge from the topsy-turvy streets of Kuala Lumpur. The traffic outside this Islamic place of worship can be unbearable, but once you’re inside, the chaos seems so far away. Friday Mosque, as the locals call it, is right in the heart of the city.
The Petronas Towers are identical towers that are synonymous to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. They’re the most iconic skyscrapers and architectural wonders in the city’s skyline. No visit in KL without a glimpse of these silver-colored twins. The first time I saw them eons ago, I thought they resemble a
