Get your steps in with a hike at Templer Park (above, a 25-minute taxi ride from Capri by Fraser, Bukit Bintang). One of the most beautiful rainforest reserves around KL, it’s home to several multi-tiered waterfalls and jungle streams, as well as varied wildlife including the blue-winged leafbird and the Malaysian crested lizard. After your morning workout, reward yourself with a long, leisurely brunch at South Indian restaurant Raju’s Banana Leaf (a 30-minute taxi ride from the park). Be sure to order the tenggiri, deep-fried Spanish mackerel.
Stave off the afternoon drowsiness at the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia, a 12-minute taxi ride from the restaurant. Featuring five gilded domes, this stunning piece of architecture houses over 7,000 Islamic artefacts spread across 12 permanent galleries. If you have time to spare, do also check out the National Mosque of Malaysia across the road from the gallery.
For dinner, take a 20-minute taxi ride to Damansara Uptown for a plate of Village Park’s famous nasi lemak – rice steamed in coconut milk and served alongside spicy sambal and deep-fried chicken. It’s lauded by many as the best nasi lemak in the entire state of Selangor.
