‘Voices of Zafigo’ is where we ask women who are living in a city, what their tips and advice would be for women travelling to the city for work or for leisure, especially for the first time, that could help make their travels to the city better, safer, more interesting and more enjoyable.

If you’re keen on sharing your own tips on a city you live in for fellow female travellers, write in to us at [email protected].


 
What’s your name and your current profession?
Hi, I’m Jancy Lee. I’m currently working for a HR consulting company.
Tell us a bit about yourself:
I’m from Perak. I have been living in Kuala Lumpur for about 3 years. Prior to that, I was living in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah for about 3 years as well. I very much enjoy food hunting, travel and activities that involve people interactions such as event organising and community development initiatives. I love to keep myself busy and am a firm believer of the quote ‘You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough’.

What are your tips and advice for female travellers to Kuala Lumpur, to help make their stay, either for work or for leisure, safer, easier, better and more enjoyable? Anything about the city that may be different and unique that one should be aware/careful of?
It would be safer to take taxis from the hotel you’re staying at or book one via apps such as MyTeksi, which allows you to share your location and taxi details with others when you are travelling from one place to another.
Malaysia is a place rich with cultural diversity. This is a city where you’ll be spoilt with food choices, from the famous nasi lemak to banana leaf rice to Chinese dim sum. Read up a few popular local blogs for tips and suggestions on where to go and what to try such as HungryGoWhere and EatDrinkKL.
It is also important to dress appropriately, don’t opt for revealing clothing when you are attending/ working with government/ Islamic institutions.
What are your recommended top three (or more) must-try experiences for a female traveller in Kuala Lumpur?
Head over to KLCC, Pavilion or Starhill Gallery to shop your favourite luxury brands.
Book a getaway stay at one of the Sekeping Retreats for a unique retreat experience in the city.
Try fine dining in KL with close friends or loved ones. A few known restaurants in the heart of Kuala Lumpur include Marini’s on 57, Nobu KLCC, and Fuego Troika.
