Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia, and one of the most opulent cities in Asia. Kuala Lumpur is home to many famous landmarks, from Petronas Twin Towers; the tallest twin towers in the world, to the ornate Thean Hou Temple, offering spectacular views of the city. There are also enough shopping malls and outdoor markets to weary even veteran hagglers. The Batu Caves are just outside the city, and are an impressive network of limestone caverns.
Getting around Kuala Lumpur is very efficient as taxis, monorails, subways and bus lines crisscross this mammoth metropolitan area. KL Sentral is the inter-city railway hub, with trains to Singapore and southern Thailand. Directly atop KL Sentral is the Mai Bar, a chic, open-air lounge with an amazing panoramic view of the city. Kulua Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) is a vast and expansive attraction all its own. Lodgings are dotted throughout the city; choose a hotel close to the attractions you want to visit.
Kuala Lumpur boasts a temperate climate; temperatures are warm on average year-round. The pleasant weather makes Kuala Lumpur an ideal vacation destination. The Hard Rock Cafe KL, on Jalan Sultan Ismail, has been serving up burgers and entertaining audiences with classic rock music for more than 20 years. Kuala Lumpur has hundreds of nightclubs, lounges and bars for every taste. For more sedate entertainment, go to the Islamic Art Museum on Lembah Perdana.
