Kuala Lumpur Travel Guide

Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, is a fast-rising city. It’s an economic and commercial hub accentuated by an impressive skyline of towering structures. But it does have a few tricks up its sleeve, endearing tourists who are equally impressed by the beauty of its nature.

The Petronas Twin Towers and KL Tower aside, one of Kuala Lumpur’s top-rated attractions is the Butterfly Park, which houses about 5,000 vibrant and colorful winged insects. It also has a Bird Park with over 2,000 birds scattered through a 20.9 acre of land. Other important landmarks to visit in the city are the monarch’s official residence, Royal Palace Istana Negara, and the massive Wilayah Mosque.

Kuala Lumpur is well-connected to the world via the Kuala Lumpur International Airport. Getting there, especially from neighboring countries in Asia, is a breeze. To make the most of your trip, visit Batu Caves, a stunning Hindu temple set in limestone caves, and other attractions nearby.
