1. Slip and slide on more than 90 water rides at SUNWAY LAGOON theme park
Throw your hands in the air like you just don’t care! There’s no better place to do just that than at Sunway Lagoon theme park. Pack up the family and enjoy an entire day of water rides, complete with a Scream Park for the brave at heart and a Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon world for the younger bunch. We can’t name all the attractions, but 90 water rides should keep everyone entertained for an entire day!

2. Sample Malaysian street food at JALAN ALOR
Talk to anyone who’s ever been to Malaysia, and they’ll tell you that Malaysian cuisine is a melting pot of flavors to savor. Parade your taste buds down Jalan Alor to get a feel for KL’s most notorious comfort foods. When you’ve become an expert, we recommend a get-together at Manja Old Malaya, 6, Lorong Raja Chulan, where you can experience home-cooked favorites fused with a touch of class. Devour local river lobster for your main course, and for dessert, opt for a slice of cheesecake with kaya (coconut) jam!
