- Kuala Lumpur is the capital city of Malaysia, boasting gleaming skyscrapers, colonial architecture, charming locals, and a myriad of natural attractions.
Divided into numerous districts, its main hub is called the Golden Triangle which comprises Bukit Bintang, KLCC and Chinatown.
KL is widely recognized for numerous landmarks, including Petronas Twin Towers (the world’s tallest twin skyscrapers), Petaling Street flea market,
and Batu Caves, which is over 400 million years old. With frequent sales events throughout the year, expansive shopping malls like Pavilion KL
and Suria KLCC are also among the biggest tourist attractions in the city, hosting a wide range of upmarket labels from all over the world.
- Kuala Lumpur Most Popular Attractions
- Batu Caves, one of Kuala Lumpur’s most frequented tourist attractions, is a limestone hill comprising three major caves and a number of smaller ones.
Located approximately 11 kilometres to the north of Kuala Lumpur, this 100-year-old temple features idols and statues erected inside the main caves and around it.
Incorporated with interior limestone formations said to be around 400 million years old, the temple is considered an important religious landmark by Hindus.
Cathedral Cave – the largest and most popular cavern in Batu Caves – houses several Hindu shrines beneath its 100-metre-high arched ceiling.
At the foot of Batu Hill are two other cave temples – the Art Gallery Cave and Museum Cave – which houses numerous Hindu statues and paintings.
- A Menara KL Tower tour offers the best view of Kuala Lumpur City and beyong, albeit at a vertigo-inducing height. You will also get to enjoy a buffet meal
at Atmosphere 360°, a slow-revolving restaurant with starry fibre-optic ceiling lights, live music and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the city centre.
Standout dishes here include stir-fried chili crab and venison fillet, assorted dim sum, and a selection of cocktails.
- Escape from bustling Kuala Lumpur and discover Genting Highlands, Malaysia's only casino resort and theme park set 2,000 metres above sea level.
Your journey starts with a beautiful scenic hour-long drive along the verdant mountains and tranquil countryside, followed with a ride on the world’s
fastest mono cable car to reach the top of the hill.
- Soaring to a height of 451.9 metres, the 88-storey twin structure is Kuala Lumpur's crown jewel. Majestic by day and dazzling at night,
the PETRONAS Twin Towers is inspired by Tun Mahathir Mohamad's vision for Malaysia to be a global player. Together with master architect Cesar Pelli,
the international icon powerfully captures the nation's ambitions and aspirations.
As an internationally recognised landmark, the PETRONAS Twin Towers symbolise the courage, ingenuity, initiative, and determination, energy, confidence,
optimism, advancement and zest of a nation.
- 5. Kuala Selangor Firefly Boat
- Most visitors to Kuala Selangor come to watch the synchronized flashing of thousands of fireflies, which glow spectacularly in the evenings along
the banks of Selangor River. The best way to enjoy this spectacle of nature is by traveling along the river in a traditional sampan boat or an electrically
powered fiberglass boat, to help reduce air, water and noise pollution and protect the fireflies’ natural habitat.

swimming in scenic fresh water lake, paddle boating, snorkeling from soft sandy beach, lounging and sunbathing, or just relaxing and enjoying the stunning
