Holiday In Kuala Lumpur

Some like it cold, and some like it hot. If you’re the latter and you need to make a destination decision on the fly, check out Kuala Lumpur holidays and pack for sunny days, colourful market-lined streets and a nightlife that’s more than a little bit spicy. After one bite of the Malaysian national dish, nasi lemak—coconut milk rice with chilli sauce and chicken—you’ll know Kuala Lumpur doesn’t mess around with heat. But don’t worry. You can always cool off along the Klang and Gombak Rivers, kicking back under a palm tree with an urban monkey. That’s right—wild monkeys in the big city.

Things to Do in Kuala Lumpur

The Malaysian capital may be as cosmopolitan as they come, but don’t be surprised by the tropical landscape dotted with shiny high-rises and old-school shophouses. Start in the city centre near Perdana Botanical Garden. From this gorgeous green space, you can easily walk to popular attractions, like the National Mosque, the stunning Islamic Arts Museum and Kuala Lumpur Bird Park, a diverse habitat for fine feathered friends. If you’re into twins, head north to Petronas Towers and gaze up at the tallest twins in the world. To bask in even more of the city’s local colour, head south of downtown to Thean Hou Buddhist Temple in the Taman Desa district. This red and gilt sanctuary offers a peaceful escape from the busy city. When you’re done singing with the birds or hiking to historic mosques, take advantage of luxey and modern Kuala Lumpur holiday deals in your favourite neighbourhood. At least stop at your hotel for a more twerk-friendly wardrobe change before hitting the club scene.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Calling all shopaholics! When you’re on a Kuala Lumpur holiday, you can actually continue sightseeing while scooping up the goods at the posh Suria KLLC Mall, located between the Patronas Towers. For a more bazaar experience, weave your way through the stalls at Central Market in the city centre, south the “muddy confluence” from which the city gets its name.

You haven’t lived until you’ve gathered your best friends—or made some new ones—and dined off the finest banana leaves in town. Usually served during lunch, these green parcels are stuffed with rice, dahl, curried veggies, and the list goes on—just add these to the list of Kuala Lumpur packages you’ll want to get your hands on.

You’ve been waiting till sundown for the party to get started, and you’ve got lots of parties to choose from. In Butak Butang, a small neighbourhood centered on street with the same name, you’ll find swanky rooftop bars and dimly lit nightclubs for high-class shenanigans as well as pull-pumping dance clubs. In nearby Chinatown, you can take the volume down a notch at Petaling Night Street Market or sip a caffeinated nightcap at a quirky coffee shop.
