A holiday in Kuala Lumpur, a modern metropolis and capital of Malaysia, reveals a place where colonial influences, Asian traditions, and modern aesthetics come together in urban architecture and street layout.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Pavilion KL and KLCC - Bukit Bintang Pedestrian Walkway. Get some historical perspective at Putra Mosque and Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Mosque. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kuala Lumpur: Bagan Lalang Beach (in Sungai Pelek), IOI City Mall (in Putrajaya) and Port Dickson (Muzium Tentera Darat & Bagan Pinang Beach). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia, explore the fascinating underground world of Batu Caves, buy something for everyone on your list at Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall, and see the interesting displays at Museum of Illusions.
