Kuala Lumpur Holidays Overview


Kuala Lumpur, popularly referred to as KL, is the capital and the largest city of Malaysia and one is also known to be of the most developed and cosmopolitan cities of Southeast Asia. The city has transformed itself from an old world Chinese tin mining village to a modern day bustling metropolis. It is also known to be a melting pot of various cultures and is home to some of the cheapest shopping and luxury hotels in the world. With breathtaking natural wonders steps away and excellent sights to see within the city, Kuala Lumpur has a lot to offer for all sorts of tourists.

Kuala Lumpur might be typically Asian in its sights and sounds, but there is nothing Asian about its gleaming skyscrapers and glitzy malls. In fact, the city is a beautiful blend that allows hawker filled streets and individuals selling counterfeit DVDs to coexist with cloud hugging skyscrapers, WiFi enabled coffee shops and expansive shopping malls. The pulsating nightlife and world class cuisines might be the highlights of any trip to the city, but the man-made attractions and natural sceneries also offer ideal settings for a perfect day tour.

Whether you prefer to explore the commercial sights and casinos of the Genting Highlands or prefer to check out the scenic beauty that Sunway has to offer, no trip of Kuala Lumpur can ever be complete without visiting either one of these two theme parks. Both are known to be the very best in their own right and offer travellers with an entirely unique experience.

Some of the most famous sights in and around the city include the world famous Petronas Twin Towers, that were once known to be the tallest towers in the world, the Sultan Abdul Samad building that is known for its 131 foot clock tower, the rugged limestone Batu Caves, the beautiful Jamek Mosque, the Old Railway Station, the magical fireflies of Kuala Selangor, The KL Bird Park that is famous as the largest walk in aviary in the world and the breathtaking Lake Gardens.

Kuala Lumpur holidays - Top Places To Go

 
1. Merdeka Square

What is it? The 328ft (100m) flagpole rising from Merdeka Square is the tallest in the world, and marks the place where Malaysia achieved independence in 1957. The city's colonial past is still very much alive in the architecture of the surrounding buildings and the field still hosts the occasional cricket matches. The Tudor-style Royal Selangor Club rests on one corner of the square, looking onto a large video screen displaying religious messages and advertisements. The Club served as a social centre for Kuala Lumpur's British residents; its doors are now open to anyone who can afford the membership fees. In keeping with die-hard customs women are still not allowed entry to the bar, except by invitation. Hours of Operation: Phone:

 

 

2. Chinatown

What is it? The crowded and colourful Chinatown area is a jumble of shops, food, smells and people. The central section of Jalan Petaling is closed at night to traffic and the street is transformed into an exciting, brightly lit experience. Vendors spread their wares onto the pavement and one can stroll along endlessly taking it all in. Merchandise ranges from jewellery to toys and t-shirts and bargaining for the best prices is accepted practice and part of the fun. Hours of Operation: Phone:

 

 

3. Petronas Towers
City centre. Ticket Booth: Tower 2, Concourse Level
What is it? The Petronas Towers are designed to impress and encapsulate Malaysia's emergence as South East Asia's commercial and cultural centre. Celebrated as the tallest towers in the world until the recent completion of Taipei 101 in Taiwan, the buildings stand at a height of 1,483ft (452m) and are joined by a skybridge extending 192ft (58m) across. Traditional geometric principles of Islamic architecture have been followed using modern technology, with an inspiring result.

Hours of Operation: The Skybridge is open to the public Tuesday to Sunday 8.30am to 5pm Phone:(0)3 2331 1769 (Skybridge)
