Places of Interest

Places of interest in Kuala Lumpur include:
Petronas Twin Towers
The icon of modern Kuala Lumpur, the Twin Towers anchors the sprawling Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC). This 88-storey chrome and steel towers are joined at the 41st and 42nd floors (175m above street level) by a 58m-long, double-decker Sky Bridge. Your stay in KL would not be complete without visiting the world’s tallest twin structures.
Sultan Abdul Samad Building
Built in 1897, the Sultan Abdul Samad Building is among Kuala Lumpur’s earliest Moorish-style buildings and is a distinguished city landmark which served as the secretariat for the colonial British administration. Today, the building is home to Malaysia’s Ministry of Information, Communications and Culture, and is frequently the backdrop for Malaysia’s annual National Day parades.
Petaling Street (Chinatown)
Petaling Street holds its own against the more glamorous KLCC. Deeply immersed in Oriental culture, heritage and history, KL’s Chinatown is fondly called ‘Chee Cheong Kai’ in Cantonese, which means starch factory street, in reference to a tapioca mill opened by Chinese Kapitan Yap Ah Loy. Day and night, the hustle and bustle never stops in Petaling Street, with visitors flocking in to either shop or try out the famous street food.
Central Market
A short walk away from Petaling Street, Central Market (aka. Pasar Seni) is a Malaysian cultural landmark which has come a long way from its early days as a wet market in 1888 to a delightful destination for tourists, shoppers and art lovers today. Similar to London’s Covent Garden or San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf, Central Market is the focus for KL’s artistic community. Inside the building is a warren of boutiques, handicraft and souvenir stalls with traders selling local merchandise such as authentic Malaysian batik prints and more.
Brickfields (Little India)
Located near KL Sentral, Brickfields is more commonly known as KL’s Little India due to the number of Indian residents, as well as Indian stores and restaurants. Visit this bustling, colourful street and be sure to try out the banana leaf rice. This is also a great place to find authentic Indian goods.
