Things to do
The Petronas Towers are perhaps Kuala Lumpur’s most impressive attraction, boasting 88 floors in each tower, anchored by a complex containing a shopping mall, theatre and aquarium. Walk across the sky bridge connecting the towers for some of the best views of the city below.
If you’re looking for a break from the heat, head out into the countryside for a tour of the iconic Batu Caves. This impressive limestone outcropping beholds spectacular views in a pristine setting and the ornate Hindu shrines within the interior. This cave is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside of India.
For some relaxation and entertainment after a long day of sightseeing, head to the Golden Triangle for a choice of chic nightclubs, trendy bars or upscale restaurants. Stop by Marini’s on 57, the highest rooftop joint in the city, enjoy the fervent dance scene at Zouk or head out to the bustling Beach Club.
Kuala Lumpur is a hungry traveller's dream destination, so it’s no surprise that a food tour is one of the best ways to experience the city. Hire a guide for a fulfilling walk-through Kuala Lumpur’s food courts, such as Food Republic or KLCC Signatures.
If you can deal with the heat, getting around on foot is a good way to explore the city. Renting a car is also an option, but be prepared for heavy traffic at times. The KLIA Express runs regular routes to and from Kuala Lumpur International Airport. The quickest way to explore the city, from your Kuala Lumpur hotel, is by using the modern trains, monorails and Light Rail Transport.
