Top 5 Reasons to Visit Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Written by: Jay Ho
1. Petronas Twin Towers
Completed in 1998, the magnificent Petronas Twin Towers soar 452m (1,483ft) into the sky. They remained the tallest buildings in the world until 2004 and the completion of the Taipei 101 Tower. A spectacular view of the city can be had from the skybridge halfway up.
2. Lake Gardens
A sanctuary from the city, the 227-acre (92-hectare) Lake Gardens (Taman Tasik Perdana) include deer, bird and butterfly parks. Visit the beautiful orchid garden amid lakes, lawns and undulating hills.
3. Genting Highlands
The Genting Highlands are hugely popular with city-dwellers; at some 2,000m (6,500ft) above sea level, they offer relief from the constant heat and humidity of the lowlands, and are easily accessible. A family-oriented theme park and Malaysia’s only casino are further draws.
Easily reached from Kuala Lumpur, Melaka was once the centre of a mighty trading empire in the days of the spice trade with Europe. The compact historical centre can be explored on foot or trishaw, a picturesque scene of narrow lanes, old temples and mosques and faded colonial architecture. The descendants of Portuguese traders are still here.
5. Batu Caves
Around 30-minutes’ drive from the city centre, the Batu Caves are something of a must-see for visitors to KL. The spectacular caves are sacred to Hindus, and each year the Thaipusam festival draws thousands of devotees to offer thanksgiving and prayers at the shrine of Subramaniam in the main cave. Visit the Gallery of Indian Art in a smaller adjacent cave.
