Probably the most well-known city of Malaysia, the sprawling city of Kuala Lumpur is the largest metropolis and an international melting pot of cultures. KL boasts some of the most impressive 5 star hotels in Asia, great shopping spots from street markets to huge malls, religious temples, colonial landmarks and great entertainment districts. Throw in nearby natural splendours too and there's little wonder why Kuala Lumpur is among Asia's most visited cities.
TOP KL ATTRACTIONS
Batu Cavesis one of the most interesting sights in KL. The Hindu shrine set in the natural caves that take 272 steps to reach, is not only stunning to the eye but of great spiritual significance. It is the site of the intense Thaipusam festival every year. But it is beautiful any day of the year -- bring your camera to catch the light streaming into the cave in the most serenely dramatic fashion. Batu Cave sits over 40metres high behind the imposing golden statue of Lord Murugan. It's a must-visit in KL for all visitors and tourists, although equally loved by monkeys who are amazingly skilled at picking your pockets.
Petaling Streetis the hot spot for cheap shopping and lots of delicious Malaysian hawker food. This is virtually KL's Chinatown and the hustle and bustle takes you back to the old days. Have some chee cheong fun, buy some designer knock-offs, eat some roasted nuts. Other attractions near Petaling Street include Jamek Mosque and Sri Mahamariamman Temple.
There's no getting around the Petronas Twin Towers when talking about KL. But it does not stand alone in architectural splendour. Architecture in KL is simply breathtaking, with a host of colonial buildings that hint at the history's past mixed in with such landmarks as the Old Kuala Lumpur Railway Station, more skyscrapers in the city centre shooting above the traditional Malay buildings and Chinese shophouses. They're not just there to look at. Step inside for lots of shopping, entertainment like an indoor theme park, great food and some viewing decks for panoramic views over the city.
MORE THINGS TO DO IN KUALA LUMPUR
Museums line the streets of downtown KL. Even though there are dozens to choose from, two of the top museums in KL are the National Museum and the Islamic Arts Museum. The National Museum boasts plenty of exhibits that highlight the historical richness of Malaysia, including its vast, pre-colonial heritage. The National Art Gallery is also worth checking out for contemporary art collections.
Nightlife in Kuala Lumpuris among the liveliest in the country. This is the city to party. To experience nightlife in KL, the Golden Triangle boasts the largest cluster of clubs and pubs in the capital city, especially around Jalan P. Ramlee and Ampang Road.
From the cheap to the best of luxury goods, shopping is one of the top things to do in KL. There are more than 60 major shopping malls in the city, including some renowned names like the modern Berjaya Times Square, Pavilion and Suria KLCC mall, which are located within the Golden Triangle.
WHERE TO STAY IN KUALA LUMPUR
For budget hotels in KL, Chinatown is a good option that is still very accessible and easy to get around. If you want to be more central, stay around Bukit Bintang, KLCC or in the Golden Triangle. It's also a good place to stay if you plan to party in KL's nightclubs, so your ride home after the party is a short one. If you're planning a family trip to Genting, stay at Resorts World Genting for a night or two.
