Visit Kuala Lumpur

Indian, British, Malaysian and Chinese influences combine to create the melange of cultures that is Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s vibrant capital. A flourishing, affluent city, KL’s skyscraper skyline is peppered with minarets, shrines and green spaces. Spend at least a day or two here, admire the views from the 86th floor of the Petronas Towers and follow the forest trails in Bukit Nanas, a jungle reserve right in the heart of the city.

Lively captial city

Affectionately known as KL, Malaysia’s capital city is a fabulous introduction to the country, and displays an eclectic mix of traditional and modern architecture. You can’t fail to spot the twin Petronas Towers looming dramatically over the city, and ascending them is a great way to get your bearings. Down on street level, a mass of shophouses, markets, shopping malls and boutiques come together to make KL one of Asia’s shopping hotspots, and among it all you’ll find world-class restaurants, peaceful gardens, and patches of pristine rainforest.
