Welcome to Kuala Lumpur (or just "KL" to the locals), the capital of Malaysia and one of the top 10 most visited cities in the world. This diverse metropolis is home to Malay, Chinese, and Indian ethnic populations and is considered a global city at the cutting edge of economic and cultural development. Travelocity can help you find cheap hotels in Kuala Lumpur so that you have more cash to spend on souvenirs to remember your Malaysian vacation!
Take in the Petronas Towers, the tallest twin buildings in the world. Suria KLCC, an upscale shopping center primarily featuring luxury foreign goods, is located at the foot of the towers and is also the site of a concert hall, an art gallery, a park, and more. Positioned right in the heart of the city, Suria KLCC is conveniently located among many Kuala Lumpur hotels. Later, visit the dim Batu Caves, a series of limestone caves that house a Hindu temple and several shrines devoted to Lord Murugan. While you're there, entertain yourself by watching the monkeys that cavort along the length of the 272 steps leading up to the caves. If that whets your appetite for wildlife, check out the Bird Park, the largest walk-in aviary in the world, which features over 200 species of birds, most of them native to Malaysia. Other notable sights include the National Mosque and the Islamic Arts Museum, where you can view a variety of beautiful religious art.
The famous Petaling Street, KL's Chinatown, is lined with restaurants and market stalls and is a great place to grab a bite. Here you can find local mainstays ranging from ikan bakar (charcoal grilled fish) to nasi lemak (rice cooked with coconut milk, pandan leaf, sambal, anchovies, peanuts, and hard-boiled eggs). Don't neglect to try some delicious roti! Ready to explore Kuala Lumpur packages?
