Kuala Lumpur Holidays

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. A fun way to discover Kuala Lumpur is by joining the  Kuala Lumpur Lifestyle and Food experience, where you will follow treasure hunt style clues around the city, whilst exploring the culinary heritage of Malaysia at the same time.

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.

  • Petronas Twin Towers

    Petronas Towers

    At 452 metres high, the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur's heart offer a neck-straining sight.

  • Hock Teik Cheng Sin Temple

    Magnificent Mosques

    Kuala Lumpur's historic mosques are just as striking as the futuristic skyscrapers they rub shoulders with, and are a huge part of Malaysian culture within the city.

  • Fireflies

    Enchanting Fireflies

    Away from the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur is Kuala Selangor, a small village known for its natural heritage of Mangrove forest. Here you can witness thousands of fireflies sparkling in the thick mangrove along both sides of the river banks. A wonderful phenomena resembling rows of brightly lit Christmas trees!
