Kuala Lumpur is the beating heart of Malaysia, and is a proud display of Malaysian culture. The city was carved out of the jungle by tin prospectors only a couple of centuries ago, but it has seen non-stop growth ever since.

Today, Kuala Lumpur boasts a unique skyline and a friendly, colorful culture. Take the elevator to the observation level of the KL Tower to get your bearings as you look over the entire city. To take in some interesting architecture, visit the iconic Petronas Twin Towers, one of Kuala Lumpur’s grandest buildings.

Browse the lanes of Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur’s very own Chinatown, where you can sample some classic spicy Malaysian street food. Connect with history and the spirituality of the Malay people at Kek Lok Si Temple, an incredible Buddhist temple which boasts statues, prayer halls, gardens, and an impressive seven-story pagoda at its center.
