About Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur is the capital city of Malaysia. Its tropical climate makes it summer all year round. There is verdant plant life everywhere. Fans of the great outdoors can trek to the Batu Caves or the Genting Highlands for natural landscapes, while those who prefer a cultural landscape can visit Dataran Merdeka (Independence Square) or the National Mosque. Those who prefer to spend their holidays sampling delicious local food can go to Petaling Street or try fusion dining at fine restaurants like Cilantro.

Petronas Twin Towers are one of Kuala Lumpur’s most iconic urban landmarks and a location for the filming of the Hollywood film “Entrapment” starring Sean Connery. The twin towers are 88 stories tall, reaching just over 450 meters in height. No trip to Kuala Lumpur is complete without a photo of the two majestic spires piercing the Malaysian sky. A trip to the double-decker skybridge on the 41st and 42nd floors offers a bird’s eye view of the gorgeous scenery of the capital city below. The skybridge connects the two towers.

The architecture of the mosque is different from the typical domed style of most Malaysian mosques in that its focal point is a tall pointed minaret. It also contains reflecting pools and fountains near the center of the complex, and is dotted with flowers and trees.
Kuala Lumpur Tower
892 Reviews
Observation Deck
Located on the Coffee Hill, Kuala Lumpur Tower is a wireless communications tower where visitors can now enjoy a panoramic view of Kuala Lumpur from the observation deck on the tower. The observation deck is based on the Muslim minaret. The decorative glass windows at the top of the tower are designed in the style of the Iranian Royal Palace. Employing the use of Arabic script, Islamic-style tiles, classic Islamic floral motifs, and sophisticated decorative patterns with subtle colous reflect Malaysia's long tradition of Islamic culture. The revolving restaurant at the top of the tower, serving authentic Malaysian and international cuisine, is a great way to overlook the city. The high-level ballroom is also a popular venue for weddings.

Trip Moments

You can get to the place you think of by taking the Airport Express in Kuala Lumpur, because it is very convenient for city traffic. Unlike the ride in Langkawi, there are a lot more transportation options. The old and magnificent Kuala Lumpur Railway Station was built in 1911. It is a castle-style building with British medieval style. It is deeply influenced by Moorish architecture and is the most prominent performance of British culture in Malaysia. Well-designed by the famous architect Kebo, the dome of the arch is now majestic, and the spires are more ancient and modern, giving a feeling of Byzantine-like wonderland. The old station in Kuala Lumpur is really beautiful and has a strong Islamic color. This unique architectural landscape is very suitable for friends who like photography. This architectural design is also the love of reading design children. The main building of the old railway station is pure white and has the reputation of the most beautiful railway station in the world, although it is slightly exaggerated. But the design and architecture are exquisite and beautiful. Because there are not many trains at the train station, the flow of people is scarce. It is very suitable for taking pictures at random. It is not good to visit anything. It is good to keep some commemorations. In fact, it is more important to come out with them and take time to go. Building conditions are not allowed. Opposite is the administrative building of the Malaysian Railways Bureau. It is also another very beautiful ancient building. The best location to see the old railway station is also here. It is not far from the National Mosque. It is a 10-minute walk from the train station to the National Mosque. Can be visited on the same day. In fact, our destination is a mosque.
