A vibrant cosmopolitan capital, Kuala Lumpur has plenty to offer its visitors no matter what your tastes and interests and is a charming blend of eastern culture and hospitality mingled with western convenience.

Perhaps the most obvious attraction to visit in Kuala Lumpur is the Petronas Towers complex, 88-storey twin buildings which afford panoramic views over the city. There are, however, a number of other architectural gems in the capital, such as the colourful Sri Mahamariammam Temple and Merdeka Square which is where you will find many heritage buildings of interest.
Do you have a keen interest in history? If so, make your way to the National Museum on Jalan Damansara and stroll through the four picturesque main galleries where you can learn all about Malaysia's colourful history before heading on to Lake Gardens Park. These beautiful colonial gardens offer a serene place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city centre; there is a large children's playground to keep little ones entertained and you can also hire a boat for a tranquil row across the lake. Popular attractions, like Kuala Lumpur Bird Park and the Islamic Arts Museum are nearby.
Foodies too will love spending a city break in Kuala Lumpur as the city is home to a diverse range of eateries serving various cuisines ranging from traditional Malaysian to French and Japanese. Head to Rebung for some delicious national dishes or opt instead for the braised terrapin and honeyed spare ribs served by the highly popular Robson Heights restaurant.
