Booming and burgeoning, Kuala Lumpar is a considerable sight to behold in the form of a towering cityscape, sprawling neighbourhoods, assorted cultural collage, and a rich dining, shopping and nightlife scene.
While the city has much to offer, given the other more desirable locations in Malaysia in which to spend your time, KL (as the locals affectionately call it) is more of a necessary entry or exit point.
Nonetheless we can organise the best and most convenient hotels, fine dining experiences and privately guided tours led by our expert guides so as to make the most of your time in KL, according to you.
What to do
- Zoom up to the skybridge that unites the twin Petronas towers in a mere 41 seconds for a terrific viewing platform.
When to go
All year round is fine with December to March being the better months.
Kuala Lumpur is a city of contrasts: the space-age feel of the iconic Petronas Towers and the glossy shopping malls and luxury hotels which surround them are a stone’s throw from faded colonial style buildings and ancient temples. The highlight of my time here was my visit to the remarkable Batu Caves on the outskirts of the city – one of the country’s most sacred Hindu shrines, super colourful and a hive of activity, busy with local and visiting worshippers.
