Kuala Lumpur: Cycling Activity Holiday
Easier to negotiate than Bangkok, less cosmopolitan than Singapore and more eclectic than Hanoi
Kuala Lumpur is neither ideal nor safe for a cycling holiday due to the heavy flow of traffic in the city. However, visitors to Kuala Lumpur can hire a bike and enjoy a lovely ride in Kuala Lumpur’s two main lake gardens, Taman Tasik Perdana and Taman Tasik Titiwngsa. The tracks in these two parks run through woodlands and around the lake and make for easy cycling.
Adventure seekers can have a mountain biking holiday in Kuala Lumpur (without the mountains) in nature reserves around the fringe of the city. One of the best places for mountain biking in Kuala Lumpur is around the reservoirs behind Batu Caves. The terrain at the reservoirs varies from well used single track to steep rocky slopes.
