10 Reasons To Go To Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur, capital of Malaysia, whose cultural diversity and fusion of traditional and modern make this city a must-see.
Petronas Twin Towers
From this landmark of the Malaysian capital you can admire a breathtaking view of Kuala Lumpur or enjoy shopping Asian-style in the city’s best mall.
Visitors will have a colorful experience walking around the world´s largest free-flight bird park. More than 3,000 species of local and foreign birds, among them Hornbill, Hawk, Eagle, Vulture and Peacock, all live together here. Its a natural melody for children and adults.
This colonial building is located on the Kasturi Walk at Pasar Seni. Here, you can find high-quality handicrafts, batik prints, wood carvings, souvenirs, accessories and a food court, as well as art and performances.
272 steps lead you down to this site, which is sacred to Malaysia’s Hindus. Take a breath and admire the amazing natural landscape, and see the golden statues, but don’t play with the monkeys because they can be aggressive.
This green oasis in the skyscraper jungle of Kuala Lumpur is the city´s most popular park. Be careful not to get lost while enjoying the amazing Orchard Garden, Malaysian National Monument and Butterfly Garden.
Menara Kl Tower
Big sister of the Twin Towers, this is the fourth tallest communication tower of the world, and a great place for a bird’s-eye view of the city.
Islamic Arts Museum
This research center for Islamic Studies offers a collection representative of the Islamic world with emphasis on Asia. Among other things you can find here textiles, jewelry and calligraphy-inscribed pottery. After you see the collection of miniatures from the most famous mosques in the world, you’ll want to visit all of them.
Have a rest at the end of the day and enjoy the tropical weather and Asian food in the open air restaurants here. From seafood to other Asian specialties, it’s the best place to grab Malay food.
This is one of my favourite places in Kuala Lumpur. Not for its big bargains but for the Chinese atmosphere that keeps you going. It’s so easy to lose track of time in its shops selling incense, gems and traditional medicines, or in its famous Chinese eateries.
Masjid Negara represents all 13 states of Malaysia and the five pillars of Islam. Its incredibly modern architecture and soaring minaret are great additions to the city’s skyline.
