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.
For shopping fun, head to Chinatown or Suria KLCC Mall. Do some cultural sightseeing at Batu Caves and Jalan Alor. Get out of town with these interesting Kuala Lumpur side-trips: Putrajaya Bridge (in Putrajaya) and Church of The Visitation (in Seremban). Next up on the itinerary: buy something for everyone on your list at Central Market Kuala Lumpur, get a taste of the local shopping with BB Park Bukit Bintang, admire the landmark architecture of Petronas Twin Towers, and explore the world behind art at Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia.
