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.
If you like stepping back in time, don’t restrict yourself to being indoors in Kuala Lumpur – there’s plenty of reminders of the city’s storied past outside, too. Highlights include the famous Batu Caves, a revered 20th-century Hindu temple famed for its colourful staircase, and the iconic Masjid Jamek Sultan Abdul Samad Mosque.
Then, there’s Kuala Lumpur’s eclectic culinary and nightlife scene. If authentic is what you’re after, pay a visit to Bukit Bintang, which is widely regarded as the city's main entertainment district, or Changkat Bukit Bintang, where you can take your pick from an array of pubs and clubs. And don’t miss Jalan Alor for world-class street food.
