A holiday in Kuala Lumpur, a modern metropolis and capital of Malaysia, reveals a place where colonial influences, Asian traditions, and modern aesthetics come together in urban architecture and street layout.
Head to Chinatown and Central Market Kuala Lumpurfor plenty of shopping. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Batu Caves and Church of The Visitation. Step out of Kuala Lumpur to go to Putrajaya and see Putrajaya Bridge, which is approximately 34 minutes away. There's lots more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Petronas Twin Towers, buy something for everyone on your list at Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall, stroll around KL Bird Park, and get a taste of the local shopping with BB Park Bukit Bintang.
