Top Ten Things to do in KL

There were wonderful experiences in KL for our delegates. We are looking forward to bringing you the top 10 things to do in Dubai soon!

Get out and EXPERIENCE KL! 

Petronas Towers Courtesy of the Malaysia Convention and Exhibition Bureau, here's a list of the top 10 things to do in the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur (KL).

The vibrant capital of Malaysia, KL is a melting pot of cultures. It is a city of contrasts, equally rich in heritage and urban excitement. It is as colourful and exciting as the many cultures that live here.

1. Petronas Twin Towers

At 451.9 meters, the Petronas Twin Towers are the world's tallest twin structures. The Twin Towers are the centrepiece of the Kuala Lumpur City Centre which is also home to the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, Suria KLCC shopping mall, star-rated hotels, a mosque and a beautifully landscaped KLCC Park.

2. Kuala Lumpur Tower

Among Kuala Lumpur's major landmarks, the 421-meter Kuala Lumpur Tower sits in the middle of the Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve, offering a majestic view of the city. Dining at The Sri Angkasa Revolving Restaurant, and musical and traditional dance performances can be enjoyed at the tower.

3. Dataran Merdeka (Independence Square)

This historic site saw the birth of Malaysia on 31 August 1957. It was at this square that the Union Jack was lowered and the Malayan flag hoisted, signaling Malaysia's independence as a nation.

4. Shop for Bargains or Luxury

Kuala Lumpur is simply a shopper's paradise offering late night retail therapy at high end designer malls, street markets or retail strips such as the famous Bukit Bintang area. For the bargain hunter, go no further than Kuala Lumpur's own Chinatown, more popularly known as Petaling Street by the locals.

5. Central Market

Once a wholesale and retail wet market, Central Market is among Kuala Lumpur's most prominent heritage buildings. It is now a hub for all things to do with crafts and ornaments.

6. Royal Selangor Visitor Centre

Home to world-renowned Royal Selangor pewter, the centre offers a chance to see first-hand how pewter is processed, take a photo of the world's largest pewter tankard, or join the school of Hard Knocks to create your very own souvenir.

7. Kuala Lumpur Lake Gardens

A refreshing green lung of the city, the 200-acre KL Lake Gardens is named after the two lakes it is built around. Expect exotic blooms and luxuriant foliage as you bask in the beauty of this urban paradise.

8. Local Delights and Cuisines

There's food aplenty in this metropolis. The multicultural mish mash that is Kuala Lumpur will see to it that you savour everything from the local scene like its mamak stalls, or fine dining and cuisines at Jalan Alor and Changkat Bukit Bintang.

9. Kuala Lumpur Craft Complex (Jalan Conlay)

Try your hand at traditional arts and crafts at the Malay-styled Kuala Lumpur Craft Complex. Or simply browse around the many handicraft shops, the craft museum and food court.

10. Aquaria KLCC

60,000 square feet of aquarium house some of the world's largest freshwater fishes. Feed the fishes, walk through a 90-through aquarium tunnel, or even swim with the sharks at this marine wonderland.
