After a long day visiting the vibrant city of Kuala Lumpur, we stopped for a bite at a Starbucks outside the Petronas Towers to rest our feet and to hop on the Wi-Fi.  Since we didn’t have our Garmin loaded with caches for KL at the time, we instead used our Geocaching Smartphone App to see what’s around us.  tThere happened to be a highly favored Geocache nearby that appeared to be on the other side of a park.  We didn’t know that there was a park nearby so we took off to explore the park as well to see if we could find our Malaysia geocache.

The sun was starting to go down and the heat is escaping the city, so it’s a perfect night to walk through a park and we decided to go explore!  This family friendly park is in the middle of the huge metropolis and walking through the park makes us feel like locals.  We wonder what it would be like to live in KL and be able to experience this park on a daily basis.  This is one of our favorite parts about traveling.

Using the GPS, we wander through the park and see that we are getting closer, closer, and closer to the location of the Geocache.  We wonder how this Geocache would be hidden in such a public park, so we figure that it must be hidden in a clever place.  As we get within 100 feet of the cache, we notice a tree.  This tree stood out from the norm because of it’s unique shape and the way the trunk opened up in the middle.  By this time it turned dark on us, so we had to breakout the headlamps.

We try to act as inconspicuous as possible as we examine the tree, because there are locals out for evening walks.  Then we stumble across the Geocache inside the opening of the tree trunk.  Upon opening the cache, we found a geocoin trackable from South Africa.  Pretty cool.  Once we signed and replaced the log, we turned behind us and caught this view of the tower.

So geocaching took us to a park that we had no idea was there; led us to some swings which we enjoyed, led us to a pretty awesome stroll around a park, which lead us to one of the best views in KL.  You never know where Geocaching will take you.  To read more about the some of the great things to do in Kuala Lumpur, check out our story “18 Hours in Kuala Lumpur!”

  1. Very cool…only just started to look at Geocaching. Was doing a little research on it for my blog and am intrigued. I am all over the geocache while traveling. Have to give this a try.

    1. Awesome – thanks for the comment! Yeah, we really like to go geocaching – especially while we are traveling. It can take you to some really cool places that you didn’t know about, and sometimes give you a cool story or piece of history. We really love seeing and learning about new places. Will definitely check out your blog too!

      Happy Travels!

  2. Hi there, my hubby has always wanted to try this and figured it may be quite fun to do on the weekend of his birthday (shhhh, it’s a surprise) How do I go about signing up for this and planning it as we live in Malaysia. Not anywhere near KL, but I’m keen to go whenever, look forward to hearing more! thanks
