Once a sleepy tin-mining village, Kuala Lumpur has steadily grown into a bustling cosmopolitan metropolis bursting with great shopping and even better food. A city obsessed with both eating as well as sharing food, the thousands of laid back kopitiams, mamak stalls and roadside sellers are testament to Kuala Lumpur's social eating culture. The city's proximity to more popular destinations like Langkawi, Singapore and Borneo make the city a great stopping point for travellers looking to explore other Southeast Asian countries along the way.

The defining landmark of the city, the Petronas Twin Towers offer spectacular views of the cityscape. Whiz up 86 floors to the observation deck, or walk across the glass skybridge that connects the two emblematic buildings. Head to Petaling Street, the city's informal Chinatown for an opportunity to bargain hunt among the rows and rows of colourful stores. To get a true taste of the food that makes Kuala Lumpur famous, make sure to check out Jalan Alor to try egg wan tan noodles tossed in dark soy sauce, or head to an open air mamak to enjoy a delicious snack of roti canai. After dinner, head to Asian Heritage Row behind Sheraton Imperial to get your choice of any number of super hip nightclubs and bars.

Highlights and Icons

Travellers to Kuala Lumpur generally stay within the Golden Triangle. This area has the largest concentration of shopping centres, hotels and tourist hotspots including the emblematic Twin Towers. Bintang Walk is home to a large number of quaint restaurants and nightspots. Other suburbs including Brickfields with its delicious banana leaf restaurants and bangle shops, can be easily be accessed by monorail. Further up north, the limestone hills of Batu Caves with its giant gold statue of Lord Muruga, and the National Zoo provide great opportunities for a day trip out of the city.
