Introducing Kuala Lumpur


Kuala Lumpur manages to strike the perfect balance between Far Eastern mysticism and vibrant modernity. It's home to what was once the tallest building in the world, Petronas Towers, which is the perfect place to start your exploration of the city. In 1957, the British flag was lowered and the Malay flag raised in Merdeka Square, which you can explore along with the Malayan Railway Administration Building. Be sure to explore the markets of the city, where you'll find locally produced goods and electronics - just be sure you haggle for the best price. Then take a trip to Menara KL Museum and head up to the top floor for some breathtaking views of the city. You'll also be able to try some of the best food Malaysian cuisine has to offer in the tower's revolving restaurant.

Kuala Lumpur is known for:


Wellness Entertainment and Shopping Nature and Wildlife Seaside
