The trend nowadays is veering towards the perfect aesthetic. It makes sense, the popularity of mobile apps like Instagram and Snapchat has invited photographers, both amateur and professional, to take pictures in very creative ways and angles. If you browse through any of the photos, you will see your usual tourist backdrop on cruise ship holidays or breath-taking views captured with a unique twist, one that we have never seen before.
But it is not just about the tourist destinations or other memorable moments. The apps available today have become a haven for Kuala Lumpur food photographers as well. This is one of the reasons why hole-in-the-wall cafes and restaurants have become so popular (other than their delicious food, of course). So at the risk of being called “hipsters”, foodists are on the lookout for a unique aesthetic dining experience. But they can look no further than Kuala Lumpur, a place teeming with vibrant colour, exciting destinations, and the best cafes and restaurants perfect for Instagram and all.
