Malaysia Travel Guides & Information
Find out why Kuala Lumpur is one of the most visited cities in the world. My Destination Kuala Lumpur provides comprehensive travel guides and up-to-date information about this vibrant metropolis.
It’s not easy to build a reputation as a country on the cutting edge of development whilst remaining true to a proud heritage of tradition. Malaysia is a country with one eye on the future and one on the past, providing visitors with a startlingly diverse range of activities.
A trip to capital city Kuala Lumpur is like stepping into the future. If you don’t mind heights, see it all in one climb of the Petronas Towers, the tallest buildings in the world at a dizzying 1483ft. From here you’ll have the best view of fashionistas flashing their cash at Bukit Bintang’s sprawling urban malls to adorn themselves in the latest Asian styles for a night out in the buzzing bars and clubs of the Golden Triangle, or families sampling the wide gastronomic variety after a long day at the street markets and museums. Away from the futuristic hubbub of the city, Malaysia offers peaceful Hindu shrines, ornate mosques and lush countryside dotted with diminutive villages that appear unchanged for hundreds of years.
By way of steadfast dedication to both the past and the thoroughly modern, Malaysia has guaranteed itself as a compulsory stop on your Asian adventure.
