Touring Around Kuala Lumpur – The Capital of Malaysia

Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia and is the country’s cultural and economic center, which has evolved into an iconic tourism hot spot as well. Most visitors arrive in KL from KLIA airport, but the low cost carrier terminal – LCCT – is also a popular entry point for those flying with AirAsia, Firefly, Jet Star or Tiger Air. For quick transits, there are plenty of hotels near LCCT and KLIA, though staying in a hotel in the Kuala Lumpur city center is a far better option for travellers staying a couple of days.

Kuala Lumpur is a much modernized city with a network of efficient public transport including trains and light rails, buses and easily accessible taxis. The biggest attraction of the town is definitely Petronas Twin Tower and KL Tower. They are both among the tallest building in Malaysia with their distinctive and iconic designs, reach floors of 88. The connecting bridges between Twin Towers provide unobstructed view of the city. KL tower also has an observatory platform to ensure a 360 degree view of the city, especially true at night.

Shopping is the common and popular activity in KL, most true for local shoppers. It is branded as the “Golden Triangle” for the enormous amount of building and crowd, visually forming a Triangle with dazzling golden lights from bird eyes view.

Another place to enjoy local street culture would be the Chinatown, also known as “Petaling Street”. The street packs with local delicacies, snacks and goodies only available in Malaysia. Chinatown provides an opportunity for tourist to dig into Chinese culture and indulge within the elegance of the culture. Chinatown is just opposite Puduraya Bus Terminal, easily accessible within walking distance.
