Tours & Tickets
Kuala Lumpur is the capital city of Malaysia. Its tropical climate makes it summer all year round. There is verdant plant life everywhere. Fans of the great outdoors can trek to the Batu Caves or the Genting Highlands for natural landscapes, while those who prefer a cultural landscape can visit Dataran Merdeka (Independence Square) or the National Mosque. Those who prefer to spend their holidays sampling delicious local food can go to Petaling Street or try fusion dining at fine restaurants like Cilantro.
The Petronas Towers are one of Kuala Lumpur’s most iconic urban landmarks and a location for the filming of the Hollywood film “Entrapment” starring Sean Connery. The twin towers are 88 stories tall, reaching just over 450 meters in height. No trip to Kuala Lumpur is complete without a photo of the two majestic spires piercing the Malaysian sky. A trip to the double-decker skybridge on the 41st and 42nd floors offers a bird’s eye view of the gorgeous scenery of the capital city below. The skybridge connects the two towers.
The National Mosque is located near the Kuala Lumpur Main Railway Station. As Malaysia’s national mosque, it is host to many religious ceremonies. It sits on 13 acres of gardens. The architecture of the mosque is different from the typical domed style of most Malaysian mosques in that its focal point is a tall pointed minaret. It also contains reflecting pools and fountains near the center of the complex, and is dotted with flowers and trees.
Petaling Street is Kuala Lumpur’s Chinatown, famous for selling handicrafts, clothing and delicious local specialties in restaurants tucked away in side streets and alleys. There are famous Malay Chinese dishes served at restaurants like Lifeng Tea Ice Room, Wang Jinlian Chicken, Han Kee Congee Shop, Longji Barbecue, Chinatown Shengji, Luo Han Guo Longyan Rock Candy Winter Melon and more.
Located on the Coffee Hill, Kuala Lumpur Tower is a wireless communications tower where visitors can now enjoy a panoramic view of Kuala Lumpur from the observation deck on the tower. The observation deck is based on the Muslim minaret. The decorative glass windows at the top of the tower are designed in the style of the Iranian Royal Palace. Employing the use of Arabic script, Islamic-style tiles, classic Islamic floral motifs, and sophisticated decorative patterns with subtle colous reflect Malaysia's long tradition of Islamic culture. The revolving restaurant at the top of the tower, serving authentic Malaysian and international cuisine, is a great way to overlook the city. The high-level ballroom is also a popular venue for weddings.
