If you think you’re in for a classic city break experience during your Kuala Lumpur holiday, think again. The Garden City of Lights is a multicultural wonder full of contrasts; think towering skyscrapers, glass-fronted shopping malls and street food markets threaded with incense-infused temples and avenues of gnarly banyan trees.
From shimmering glass and steel to colourful minarets, Kuala Lumpur's skyline is a mashup of ancient, colonial and futuristic architecture; there’s the onion-domed Bangunan Sultan Abdul Samad building, the Menara Kuala Lumpur – with its revolving restaurant and observation deck – and, of course, the iconic twin Petronas Towers.
Architecture aside, Kuala Lumpur is a top city for culture and, as you’d expect from a capital, there’s a wide range of museums and art galleries to choose from. Pop into the Bank Negara Malaysia Museum & Art Gallery for an introduction to Islamic banking, and head to the National Museum for an overview of Malaysian history.
*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.
ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
*All deal pricing is accurate as of 3 am on the 17 Jan 2020. Prices are subject to change. Deals are subject to the partners' T&Cs.
