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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Sunway Lagoon as well as Perdana Botanical Garden. Attractions like Petronas Twin Towers and Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia make great kid-friendly stops. There's still lots to do: explore the fascinating underground world of Batu Caves, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Aquaria, walk around KL Bird Park, and take in panoramic vistas at Menara Kuala Lumpur.
