About Kuala Lumpur


A city of constant renewal, Kuala Lumpur’s skyline bristles with cranes and scaffolding. Another continual presence is food. The open-air hawker stands lure with colourful rice cakes and cloyingly sweet drinks. Locals gather in the evening for rowdy chatter over delightful dishes of mamak and satay. Well-dressed, aspirational types nibble at western-style cakes in the icy air-conditioning of vast shopping centres.

The Japanese tower of the Petronas has a construction fault of 25mm tilt, while the Korean-constructed tower is absolutely levelled.

Check out the glossy and hyper-modern Barjaya Times Square in KL’s famed Golden Triangle. It is large enough to contain a miniature roller coaster. Venture further to experience the city’s complex, multicultural history. The landmark twin Petronas Towers. The Chinese-influenced rooflines in Petaling Street. The Batu Caves, bursting with the vivid hues of Southern India. Heavy rain is common, even in the dry months, so be prepared to rework your itinerary to make it indoors-only.

Kuala Lumpur means ‘muddy confluence’. The name is derived from its location on the Gombak and Klang Rivers.
