Celebrated annually on 19th August, World Photography Day gathers many photography enthusiasts. In light of this, Zenyum has listed hidden gems around KL for you to spice up your Instagram profile.
Here’s another reason to Smile More by celebrating World Photography Day with your friends or family!
What is World Photography Day?
We are familiar with snapping pictures of the scenery, food, friends, and family to update our social media. We thank the invention of the camera and succeeding advancements in technology making it possible to do so. Today, almost all of us carry a smartphone and it probably even has more than one camera lens!
Capturing the interest of many around the globe from wildlife photography enthusiasts, photojournalists, fashion photographers, and even amateur photographers – World Photography Day has now become World Photography Week (19th Aug – 26th Aug)!
Without further ado, let’s jump right into our top 3 picks for the most Instagrammable places around Kuala Lumpur:
1. Batu Caves
The beauty of mother nature never disappoints – Batu Caves is the perfect place to explore if you’re looking to add some nature to your feed. The Batu Caves are a series of limestone caves and is home to a 42-meter-tall Hindu Shrine, one of the largest in the world outside of India. What we love most about the location are its iconic colouful temple complex and steps that sure make for a beautiful picture.
Besides having majestic sites and places of worship, don’t be surprised if you are greeted by cheeky monkeys!
Where: Batu Caves, Gombak, 68100 Batu Caves, Selangor, Malaysia
2. Astaka Morocco
The Moroccon Pavillion also known as the Astaka Morocco amongst locals allows you to step into another country without leaving Malaysia. The buildings are adorned with intricate carvings and tiles that signify the ties between Morocco and Malaysia – it calls out to photography enthusiasts and those interested in architectural or cultural designs.
If you are just looking for a short getaway and need a new Insta backdrop, Astaka Morocco will definitely give you multiple landscapes to choose from as no two rooms are the same.
