One of the world’s most amazing cities is in Malaysia. A multi diverse vibrant city lies on central west coast of the peninsular Malaysia. Kuala Lumpur is the the financial, cultural center of the Malaysia as well as its capital city.
I love this city as it is one of my favorites to travel to, and I would like to share with you a quick guide if you are just landing at KLIA, or are planning a visit to this amazing city
Petronas Twin Towers
This is one of the most iconic places in Kuala Lumpur, and it is the most visited place in the city. High-end shopping and many other things to do there.
The two towers are a great architectural and engineering accomplishment as well as to me at least a piece of art that decorates the city while it exploits its usability.
There’s a bridge that connects the two towers at the 41st and 42nd floor, keep in mind that these structures are the tallest twin towers in the world, featuring 88 floors.
Almost every major city in the world has its own Chinatown, and Kuala Lumpur is not the exception. The street has its own nickname “Green Dragon” due to the fact that the whole street is covered by a green roof.
This street is famous for its street food. People come here to buy street food where the most popular item on the menu is Hokkien mee, and roast duck.
Speaking of street food. There are plenty of street food tours that people can take such as a tour through the Cho Kit market area.
Tun Abdul Razak Heritage Park
After you are done eating at petaling street, head over to the lake gardens since they are close to Chinatown. At this park you will also find the infamous Kuala Lumpur Bird Park with more than 200 species and more than 3000 birds
This is park square where a lot of public events happen. It is also home of the National Day Parade.
It is one of most famous colonial buildings in the city. This beautiful building has a moorish style architecture as it was influenced ny the Sultan Abdul Samad.
This building complex is home to the Ministry of information, the ministry of communication and the ministry of culture. You will also find the city gallery and the National Textile Museum.
Malaysia is a multicultural and a multiconfessional country. The country has diverse communities with different religions such as Chrisitanity, Hinduism, Chinese traditional religions. However the main religion is islam. Masjid Negara is the national mosque with a capacity for 15,000 people. It features beautiful architecture and symbolism. People that are not islam practitioners are welcome to visit but the visit has to happen when it is not prayer time.
