What have you heard about Malaysia’s capital city, Kuala Lumpur? If you’ve heard something like, “there is not a lot of things to do in the place”, then you are gravely mistaken.
Kuala Lumpur is a cultural melting pot and it is this cultural diversity that makes the place quite interesting. Not only can you see the different cultures in the food that they serve, but you can also see it on their infrastructure, their products, and so much more.
That being said, I’ve also heard that they produce the best escort girls in the world so that is definitely something that is worth noting.
If you are skeptical about what I’ve said, then this article might convince you to go to Kuala Lumpur. Today, I am going to talk about some of the must-visit places in the country.
Petronas Twin Towers
Considered as the tallest twin towers in the world, the Petronas Towers is definitely an iconic landmark. In fact, if you happen to see some postcards from Malaysia, I am willing to bet that some of them highlight the said twin towers.
Anyway, there is a sky bridge that connects the two towers that occupy the 41st and 42nd floors and it is in this area where you can see a nice view of the entire city.
From here, you can see places such as KLCC Park and a whole lot more.
Kuala Lumpur City Gallery
If you want to know more information about Malaysia’s capital city, then you definitely have to go to the Kuala Lumpur City Gallery. In fact, tourists are encouraged to go here since you can also find some souvenirs outside as well.
The gallery was built on a heritage site that dates back to the 19th century. Here, you can see that the neo-Renaissance architecture was heavily favored by their past colonizers, the Brits.
Thean Hou Temple
Despite the fact that Malaysians mainly practice Islam as their main religion, there are other religions that are practiced by others as well. Buddhism is also practiced in the country and the Thean Hou Temple happens to be one of the oldest and largest Buddhist temples that you can find in Southeast Asia.
That being said, this temple was built as a dedication to Guan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy. Its architecture itself is already a marvel to behold, but once you reach the top of the temple, you will have a glimpse of the entire city.
If you fancy buying some Malaysia handicrafts, the Pasar Seni Central Market is the one that you should go to.
The building looks like a beautiful Art Deco building and it serves tourists some Malaysian old-style batik prints among many different products.
Berjaya Times Square
Considered as the largest indoor theme park in Malaysia, the Berjaya Times Square combines both shopping mall and theme park all in one.
The mall houses many restaurants that offer food at very inexpensive prices and that cheap price also translates to some of the wares and items that you can find the mall as well.
Forest Eco Park
Malaysia prides itself as the only country that has a forest reserve that is not mired by urban development. The KL Forest Eco Park is home to some magnificent creatures and if you want to experience nature without anything urban, then this is the place to be.
