Running at KLCC Park next to Petronas Twin Tower and KLCC Suria Shopping Centre


Inspirational Quote: "Today I will love myself enough to exercise"
Whenever I have visiting friends or colleagues from overseas, I would bring them to visit Petronas Twin Towers, KLCC Suria shopping centre and KLCC Park. These are iconic landmarks of Malaysia and I don't want travellers and visitors to Malaysia to miss it! :)

Running at KLCC Park

A very nice place to run especially in the early mornings with less people!
Many tourists and travellers staying in KL vicinity area love to jog and run at KLCC Park as well. Who says we can't combine exercise into our travel, especially after all the delicious local food? haha! 😃

It's also a very popular jogging, running and exercise venue for many Kuala Lumpur folks and those working in KLCC Park vicinity, be it in the mornings before work or after work, or during weekends. Few running groups love to hold their weekend running there.

I run there several times. During my last run there, I managed to snap some photos of KLCC Park for sharing here. It was a misty, drizzling morning so the photos might not be so clear. But I hope you still have envision how beautiful KLCC park is! 🙏
