Attractions in Kuala Lumpur
Towering over Kuala Lumpur are the Petronas Towers; the 88-story glass, stainless-steel and concrete wonder. Home of Petronas Malaysia’s oil and gas company and the Dewan Filharmonik concert hall, the towers' lifeline is The Skybridge often used in movie scenes.
Another impressive structure is KL Menara, the telecommunication tower spiral with an onion-shaped crown. Participate in the yearly race to the top or enjoy dinner with a view at the revolving restaurant.
Open since 1888, this market is housed in an impressive Art Deco structure where unique multi-ethnic items such as batik fabrics, carvings, traditional sculptures, clothing, and souvenirs are sold.
Located on Masjid India Street near Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman, you’ll find many Indian retail outlets selling your favorite Indian foods, spices, flowers, and of course anything Bollywood.
Colorfully decorated, the place for bargain hunting is Petaling Street in Chinatown. The non-stop area is where haggling for the best price on that “must-have” item is encouraged.
Sri Maha Sakthi Mohambigai Amman Temple
The 100-year-old place of worship is guarded by two massive statues known as bhootangals. Located in the center of the hectic city, many find solace near the Bodhi tree and statue of a meditating Buddha.
Just outside the city, you’ll find this temple and shrine with a massive Hindu God sculpture at the entrance. The three main caves are full of Hindi sculptures and monkeys too so visitors beware. A 272-step climb to the top rewards you with fantastic skyline views.
Kuala Lumpur Bird Park
One of the largest parks in the world at 20 hectares, this lush green tropical forest is home to over 60 species of birds in a free-flight walk-in aviary. A perfect stop for first dates or trips with the family.
