Food Scene
It's a nice hipster looking cafe located in the city center. Is it quite spacious with 2 floors both with indoors and outdoors. Love the huge glass windows on the top floor, which makes the space much more spacious that it is. Great for taking pictures. Drinks and cakes are quite alright, and affordable price. It would be a nice cafe to chill if you are in the city centre. They open till 11pm, compared to a lot of cafes in kl they only till 9pm or so. One thing about here is it could be quite noisy, as it's always packed, not really a place to read or do your work on a weekend. Other than that, it's a great place to hang out with friends and families!

Drinks & Nightlife
A great spot to sit and sip sundowners with a large selection of local and imported beers, wine and cocktails in a great atmosphere and location with a good selection of background video tunes. Cuban cafe theme decor with inside outside seating and also upstairs area for getting away from the crowd a little to watch the busy street action. After drinks there is a wide selection of good food in a menu that includes starters, steaks and burgers from the grill, fish and salads to name only a few. Highly recommended eating, drinking and lingering.

Parks & Nature
Highly recommended for nature and animal lovers! It is the largest bird aviary in Asia. You need to spend 2-3 hours here. There are birds of every kind in this park, such as ostriches, Hornbills, sparrows, parrots, eagles, etc. I love to see peacocks spreading their feathers. At 12:30pm, there is a bird’s show. It can feel a bit hot the closer it gets to noon so I suggest an early arrival. Should be easy to navigate with stroller or wheel chair but be prepared to push uphill in some areas. The birds seem well kept and fed. In addition, Butterfly Park is next to this park and also Orchid Garden.

Arts & Culture
It is just a 5mins walking distance from the “Pasar Seni Train Station”. It was built in year 1888. Inside the market, there are many small shops and stalls, most of them are selling handmade Malaysian hand crafted jewellery, souvenirs, goods, and clothes. It is air-conditioned too. There is two floors, but the upper floor is food court and some stalls. Outside and adjacent to Central Market are also some shops and stalls selling foods, drinks, and local groceries. Recommended to buy traditional Malay sweet coconut snacks from stall named Putu Bambu Tradisi. Most of the traditional, cultural items you can find here. It is truly malaysia!
