1 Petronas Towers

Come to gawp at these surprisingly serene twin structures, then browse in one of KL’s best shopping malls, right beneath.

2 Menara KL

Forget the Petronas Towers’ Skybridge – this is the place to come for bird’s-eye views of KL in all its messy glory.

3 Islamic Arts Museum

One of the most sophisticated museums in the capital, documenting Muslim cultures through arts and crafts.

4 Eating

KL has excellent restaurants offering cuisine from around the world, but it’s the street food, notably at Jalan Alor, that’s often the most memorable dining experience.

5 Clubbing

KL is definitely Malaysia’s party capital, home to some exceptional clubs that draw big-name DJs.

6 Shopping

Whether you prefer the bright lights of the state-of-the-art malls or the bustle of the city’s endless street markets and bazaars, KL is a city made for shopping.

7 Batu Caves

A blend of religion and theme park, these limestone caves on the very edge of KL house a Hindu temple complex and offer adventure caving explorations in a side cavern.
