Kuala Lumpur Free Bus Guide (Purple Line guide)

Kuala Lumpur Free Bus Guide (Purple Line guide)

Fellow backpackers of the world, while we are pinching our pockets to make our adventure last longer the word FREE tends to get our attention. Yup you heard it. The city of Kuala Lumpur has free buses where you can get around the city for the cheap. Want to go see the twin towers? Free. Want to eat some street food in Jalan Alor?  Free. I will be launching this series of the KL Free bus guide for you guys to get going and see the city and other hidden gems. This post will feature food, attractions and some history about Kuala Lumpur itself. This post is similar to the monorail guide which I have posted earlier. I am sure that you enjoy the insightful tips and tricks provided by the series but this is my final post for the series. I hope you enjoy this last article of the series.

Chinatown is where the coveted night market resides and is filled with quirky sights, beautiful temples and great choices of food. On this stop, take some time to wander around the streets and discover hidden bars. Chinatown is most lively at night and this is when the market transforms to its full capacity. People will start to open their stalls in time for the night crowd. You can experience a wide variety of street foods and local specialties. One suggestion to try is the Claypot Chicken Rice which opens at night.

Menara Olympia

The Telekom Muzium is dedicated to showcase the development of how we Malaysians communicate over the years. The structure of this building is an eye catcher of the old style Greek columns and the modernized interior. This museum is not for everyone but it can be for the curious. This place is a short walk away from the Olympia Building.
Opening Hours are from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Closed on public holidays.
RM5 for Adult Mykad holders and RM10 for international visitors.


At this stop, you can make your way to the foot of the KL tower. The less popular architectural child aside from the famous twins, this is the 7th tallest communications tower in the world. The KL tower offers a great place to take in the skyline of Kuala Lumpur as well a great date/dinner place with a revolving restaurant, aquariums, glass box observation decks, and a new upside down house it would sure to keep you there for a couple of hours of fun. If you dont have a strict budget, this is where I would recommend to get great pictures and a total panoramic experience of the Kuala Lumpur skyline.

Wisma Bausted

On the outside, this place is between two boring office buildings. Opposite the Bausted building, there is a hidden treat waiting behind its corner. Dont let the appearance of the Lim Foo Yong building fool you. Inside lies one of the best bars in Kuala Lumpur. Suzie Wong is a famed cocktail bar which embraces the essence of old Kowloon china with a twist of cabaret sexiness. This bar is home to award winning cocktails and great live shows. This bar has been the hiding spot for after work drinkers, pre-club drinkers and people who generally love great atmosphere

Wisma Cosway

Wisma Cosway stop is not only a great interchange stop for the KL go color buses but it is also a gateway to Suria KLCC. As many tourists who come to Kuala Lumpur for a glimpse of the twin towers, many do not know that it has an array of high brand shops, an amazing aquarium, an art gallery as well as a science center beneath these gorgeous Malaysian Twins. Suria KLCC is a on stop shopping and convention center which houses many international exhibitions as well as couture brands. Aside from that, it has a metro line beneath the mall and it is a true hub on Kuala Lumpur. Though there are many ways to get to Suria KLCC, this is one of the quickest ways by KL go bus.To get to Suria KLCC, you would need to head straight up the covered pedestrian bridge and there are well guided signs to show you your way to the Twin Towers. Once there, you can cut through the “central park of Kuala Lumpur” from the convention center and the Twin Towers will be right above your sight.
