Kuala Lumpur Holidays

The Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur offers unrivalled Far Eastern holidays to visitors from the UK, with many affordable packages available. Multicultural Kuala Lumpur's enduring appeal lies in the old world charm of its many beautiful colonial buildings and colourful shophouses, coupled with a dynamic economy that has transformed the city into an ultra-modern, world-class metropolis. The city's skyline is dominated by what for a time were the tallest buildings on Earth – the soaring twin Petronas Towers stretch more than 452 metres into the air and are connected by a bridge halfway up the striking structures.

Kuala Lumpur travel guide

  • Kuala Lumpur is a melting pot of cross-cultural influences and the result is an exciting mixture of cultures, costumes and cuisines. Kuala Lumpur is the capital and largest city of Malaysia. It is also one of the three Malaysian Federal Territories, together with Putrajaya and Labuan. The city is surrounded by satellite cities like the administrative capital Putrajaya, Cyberjaya, Sunway (great amusement park), Cheras, Shah Alam, Subang and Petaling Jaya. KL consists of various districts with their own identities. The Classic Centre is where KL was born, at the meeting of Klang and Gombak Rivers. You will find historical sites like the first large mosque Masjid Jamek, Central Market, Little India, Dataran Merdeka, Bangunan Sultan Abdul Samad and the Selangor Club. Lively Chinatown is still authentic and features Petaling Street - Kuala Lumpur’s first market and various temples (Buddhist and Hindu). The Petronas Twin Towers and KL Tower in the Grand Jalan Ampang district are hard to miss as they dominate the city’s skyline. The nostalgic Lake Gardens boasts the romantic park Taman Tasik Perdana, the Islamic Arts Museum, National Museum and the National Monument is just a stone’s throw away. The posh Bangsar is where Kuala Lumpur’s rich come out to play. The highlight is Jalan Telawi, packed with nightspots. For shopping, head off into the direction of the hip Bukit Bintang which is dubbed “The Shopper’s Paradise.” Do the Bintang Walk and find out why! The rest of KL includes sights such as the Batu Caves Hindu Temple, Forest Research Institute of Malaysia (FRIM) Park, Selangor Pewter, and the National Zoo. Or why not take a relaxing day, and just absorb the atmosphere of wandering through such diverse communities as Chinese, Malay, South Indian and East Malaysian and many more. Each community offers its own festivals, food, music, art and fashion, while lending its own unique addition to Malaysian culture.

  • Kuala Lumpur combines a modern city with an old feeling of the town. Visit for example the Petronas Twin Tower which used to be the highest building in the world or visit the oldest market in town where you can find lovely souvenirs to take home.

  • The Malaysian kitchen is a fusion of cultural diversity. For instance, Nasi Lemak is Malay food, Rojak is Indian Muslim, Char Kuay Teow is Chinese and Laksa is Nyonya (a mix of Malay and Chinese). Each culture emphasises different ingredients, exploiting different flavours, for example the Malay curry tastes tangier compared to the Indian’s.

If you look close enough, you will notice the assimilation of local culture in the bars.

The club culture is concentrated mainly in Jalan Telawi and Jalan P Ramlee.
