Kuala Lumpur - Capital Of Malaysia

The local translation of Kuala Lumpur is 'muddy estuary' which doesn't do the city the justice it deserves.

The area is the fastest growing metropolitan region in the country, in terms of population and economy,

The soaring sky scrapers of the metropolis is also a source of fantastic shopping, amazing food and very inexpensive luxury hotels.

A visit to the Petronas Twin Towers is a must and shopaholics will have a dream here with the plentiful street markets. The city is also starting to open up to familiy-centric tourism with its host of new theme parks.

The blend of old and new worlds, interspersed with the diverse influences of Malay, Chinese and Indian cultural lifestyles, makes for a fascinating exploration of the city's streets.

Top 5 things to do in Kuala Lumpur

Petrona Twin Towers

The Petronas Towers are the world's tallest twin buildings at 452m high.

Towering over the city, these towers have become a landmark for Kuala Lumpur and Malaysia.

Tower one is fully occupied by the Petronas company, hence the building's name with the second tower being rented out as general office space.

The two towers are connected, 170m up, by the fully enclosed Skybridge walkway. The walkway is not attached to the main structure, but is instead designed to slide in and out of the towers to prevent it from breaking during high winds.

The vantage from the Skybridge is phenomenal and on a clear day you can see the whole city and beyond around you.

There is one free tour every day, however, tickets are usually sold out by 08:30am.

Merdeka Square

Merdeka Square ("Independence Square") is directly in front of the Ministry of Information Sultan Abdul Samad Building and is the site where the Union Flag was lowered and the Malayan flag hoisted for the first time at midnight on August 31, 1957.

The square celebrates the occasion with the the annual Merdeka Parade (National Day Parade).

Surrounding the square are many buildings of historical interest including the Royal Selangor Club Complex which is situated on one side of the square, the National History Museum and the Memorial Library, a building dating back to 1909.

Chinatown

If you are looking for a good bustling traditional market to buy and haggle over items, head off to Petaling Street, the centre of Kuala Lumpur's Chinatown district.

Infamously known for selling pirated clothes and accessories along with bootleg DVDs and CDs, there is a good mix of trade going on in the area including dozens of restaurants and food stalls.

There are plenty of buildings and monuments in and around Chinatown including the Sin Sze Si Ya Temple, said to be the oldest Taoist temple in Kuala Lumpur.

Guided walks around the area are plentiful should you wish additional information about the area and if you are on a tight schedule and just want to take in the 'important' sights.

City Centre Park

The KLCC Park was designed to provide a green area for the Petronas Twin Towers and the surrounding area.

It was designed to showcase a heritage of tropical greenery by integrating man's creation with nature. The park itself contrasts as a calm environment in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city.

The park features many combinations of man-made design such as cements, water features and also natural features such as trees, shrubs, stones and wood with a man made lake in the middle of the park.

Suria City Centre

The Suria City Centre is Malaysia's premiere shopping centre located at the base of the Petronas Twin Towers.

Opened in 1988 and spanning over 6 floors, the Suria is absolutely huge with the majority of the shops catering for the high-end luxury and fashion industries.
