Garden City of Lights

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.
Get some cultural insight at Chinatown and Batu Caves. Do your shopping at Central Market Kuala Lumpur and Suria KLCC Mall. Change things up with these side-trips from Kuala Lumpur: Church of The Visitation (in Seremban) and Putrajaya Bridge (in Putrajaya). There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Petronas Twin Towers, explore the world behind art at Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia, shop like a local with KLCC - Bukit Bintang Pedestrian Walkway, and browse the different shops at Mid Valley Megamall.
