Kuala Lumpur Information
Kuala Lumpur is truly a ‘Garden
City of Lights' that bustles with energy. It is a mix of both the
ultra modern of the future and the rustic charm of the past. And
as capital city spanning almost 243.6 sq km, KL - as it is fondly
known- is the nerve centre of the country with almost 2 million
KLites calling it home. This modern metropolis offers an endless
shopping paradise, glorious array of food and happening nightlife
set to enthral even the most seasoned travellers. One thing is assured
- there is never a boring moment in KL.
Getting around is a breeze since KL has a well-connected transportation
network. There is a choice of PUTRA/STAR train systems, monorail,
taxis and buses. Alternatively, you take a pre-arranged tour to
view the major landmarks that make KL. The more adventurous can
also explore this exciting city on foot.
If you fancy all things traditional, then Karyaneka Handicraft
Centre is a great place to visit. It is a treasure trove
of exquisite Malaysian souvenirs and unique handicrafts, which can
be purchased at affordable prices.
Places of Attraction

buildings in KL. It sits at the confluence of the Klang and Gombak
rivers. This grand old mosque incorporates features of Moorish
architecture and North Indian Islamic motifs.
A short walk from here is the bustling Petaling
Street or Chinatown - a popular hound for tourists and
locals alike. This bargain hunter's hotspot is a frantically busy
market that is closed to traffic. It is most spectacular at night
when the crowd is at its most. No bargain hunter should miss this
haven that offers just about anything under the sun, at unbelievably
Just across Petaling Street is Central
Market that was formerly a wet market. Today, the vibrant
Central Market with its art-deco structure is a centre for the
display and development of Malaysian culture, arts and crafts.
It offers a blend of performances, demonstrations and activities
like batik painting, fortune telling, shadow puppet plays, glass
blowing, portrait painting, caricature drawing, dance classes,

in 1986. This former station features turrets, arches, minarets

to KL Sentral a few years ago.

Malay architecture and houses many artefacts and items from Malaysia's
past with a detailed account of the culture and history of its
As Islam is the official religion of Malaysia, the beguiling National
Mosque is the pride of the nation. The mosque occupies
a beautiful five-hectare garden in Jalan Hishamuddin. It features
a 74m high minaret and its main dome is designed in the shape
of an 18-point star to represent the 13 states of the country
and their unification by the Five Pillars of Islam. Although modern
in outlook, the mosque successfully blends the traditional features
of Islamic calligraphy and ornamentation.
Islamic Arts Museum
Created to foster better understanding of Islam through the arts,
the Islamic Arts Museum displays a fine collection of Islamic
texts, manuscripts, porcelain, weapons, art, textiles, Muslim
calligraphy and replicas of famous mosques of the world. Its four-storey
building with an impressive array of tile-work is a beauty to
A short walk from the National Mosque is KL's premier garden -
The Lake Gardens. This 92-hectare rolling garden is one of the
major green lungs of KL city. It is a favourite among city folks
and visitors to escape from the hectic pace of city life. The
park offers various recreational activities and attractions like
the world's largest covered bird park, butterfly and deer parks,
orchid garden, planetarium, insect museum, hibiscus garden and
more. A large central lake makes the visit even more refreshing.
One can hire a boat to paddle around too. For those who find walking
tiring, there are train rides around the lake.
At 421 meters, the KL Tower is the fourth tallest telecommunications
tower in the world and the tallest in South East Asia. The tower
houses a revolving restaurant and an observation platform that
offers a bird's-eye view of Kuala Lumpur and its surroundings.
War Memorial is a testament
to those who lived, fought and died during the communist insurgency
at the time of the nation's infancy. This is a reminder to others
of their selfless acts of courage.
Nightlife being a vibrant city,
KL offers some of the best places for night entertainment. The
best of KL nightlife is concentrated in three main places - the
city center, the posh district of Bangar and the upcoming chic
district of Seri Hartamas and Mont' Kiara. Changkat Bukit Bintang
is another place worth checking out, although it's rather subdued
from the others.
