Kuala Lumpur Guide

This iconic capital city offers a host of attractions for its visitors. Malaysia’s unique cultural mix is reflected in the architecture, where mosques and temples rub shoulders with old colonial buildings and modern skyscrapers.

Take time out and visit one of the city’s parks or venture further and visit the famous Batu Caves where 272 steps lead you to the top of a limestone cavern which houses a Hindu Shrine.
