Today, KL, as it is popularly known, is a bustling metropolis. It is the federal capital of Malaysia and is the principal center of commerce, politics, entertainment and international activities. Merdeka Square marks the place of Malaysia’s independence from colonial rule. The world's tallest freestanding twin towers are situated in the Kuala Lumpur City Center. Both of the 88-story towers soar more than 1,482 feet above the city skyline and are connected by a sky-bridge on the 41st floor. KLCC Park features a lake, fountain pool, wading pool, sculptures, murals, a jogging path and a children's playground.

Petaling Street, is Kuala Lumpur's version of Chinatown. It is one of the most popular tourist attractions and the right place to buy some cheap purchases. Bargaining is a must on any items you may want to buy.

The Menara KL is the fourth tallest tower in the world. The ceiling of the lift lobby is decorated using tiny mirrors, an Islamic art form technique. High-speed lifts take visitors to an observation deck that provides a panoramic view of the entire city and beyond. International events that take place here include the annual Kuala Lumpur International Towerthon, X-treme sports performances and a B.A.S.E. Jump.

The National Art Gallery displays paintings, sculptures and other works of leading Malaysian and international artists. It also features experimental works and touring exhibitions. The unique spiral passageway provides an opportunity to view art works from various levels and angles.

Central Market was the principle wet market for Kuala Lumpur in the early years. It was extensively renovated in the 1980's into an arts and cultural center. It has become the place for local artists to demonstrate their skills and display their work. There are numerous shops and stalls that sell bric-a-brac, antiques, souvenirs, handicrafts and Asian artifacts. An open-air stage serves as the regular venue for traditional and contemporary dance, as well as musical concerts.

New Things To Do

  • Aquariums

    Oceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface, and we’ve only explored about 5% of it. That leaves so much of the Earth that we know nothing about. Not everyone can dive right into the water to look at the ocean life, so why not do the next best thing? Aquariums give us a window into a whole other world. Most locations around the world have aquariums; some larger than others.

  • Cross Country Skiing

    Cross country skiing began thousands of years ago as a means of transportation and is still used for that purpose today.
