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.
Visiting Canyoning & Rappelling Tours and Pantai Kelanang Beach will get you outdoors. Explore hidden gems such as National Mosque (Masjid Negara) and Suria KLCC Mall. Change things up with these side-trips from Kuala Lumpur: Morib Beach (in Banting), Putra Mosque (in Putrajaya) and Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Mosque (in Shah Alam). The adventure continues: browse the different shops at Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall, admire the landmark architecture of Sultan Abdul Samad Building, look for gifts at 1 Utama Shopping Centre, and shop like a local with BB Park Bukit Bintang.
