Kuala Lumpur Holidays

Metropolis of mosques and skyscrapers

Frenetic yet charming, Kuala Lumpur is glittering skylines, mouthwatering cuisine and cosmopolitan style all rolled into one.

Malaysia’s capital, this city is full of surprises. Beyond the dizzying heights of the famous Petronas Towers, you’ll find the picturesque Lake Gardens, ideal for a serene stroll, as well as the sacred Batu Caves, home to giant, gold statues of the Hindu gods. There’s more to this urban mecca than meets the eye.

See more of Malaysia in one trip: from Kuala Lumpur, head to Penang, a feast for the senses, or Langkawi for amazing views, landscapes and beaches. Or, head to Singapore for even more city excitement.
