Its name may roughly translate to ‘muddy city’, but there’s nothing backward about the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur. Often affectionately shortened to just ‘KL’, this tropical metropolis is one of the busiest and most modern cities in the world. The skyline easily rivals that of New York or Hong Kong, and its business district boasts the tallest twin buildings in the world, the awe-inspiring Petronas Twin Towers. The city has also held on to its heritage, with lots of picture-perfect buildings such as the KL Railway Station and the Victoria Institution dotted around its bustling streets. Cool off in one of the many leafy parks around the city, or in one of the city’s many air-conditioned shopping malls.
Berjaya Times Square – When is a shopping centre more than just a shopping centre? When it has a theme park situated within its premises, of course! Cosmo’s World is located on the 5th to 8th floors of the building, and features the longest indoor roller coaster in the world. It’s sure to delight children, as well as the young at heart. Berjaya Times Square itself is a sprawling one-stop complex, filled with shops, the aforementioned theme park as well as a hotel, restaurants, a huge bowling alley and even an IMAX theatre. You’ll be able to find something to satisfy any family member in here.
Nasi Kandar Pelita – Get a taste of Malaysian cuisine’s multicultural influences at this branch of a famous local chain. Pelita Nasi Kandar serves up a range of humble, yet tasty local dishes with a wonderful home-cooked flavour that many franchises seem to lack. Most dishes are bursting with spiciness, so be sure to order a large helping of steamed rice to help counter that heat. The Kari ayam – a herby chicken curry – goes well with the bland rice. If you’re after a more ‘exotic’ dish, why not try the Kari Kepala Ikan – a spicy, fragrant curry, with a fleshy fish head importing lots of flavour to the broth?
Traders Hotel – The central location of this hotel makes it a great base from which to start exploring the rest of the city. It is just a short walk across to the famous Petronas Twin Towers, and some rooms offer breathtaking views of the city’s impressive skyline. The hotel also has a rooftop pool that gives you more of those spectacular views while you work out, and is also equipped with Jacuzzis, a sauna, and a spa to help you relax after walking about in the humid city. KL is known for its wealth of dining options, but if you can’t be bothered to leave the hotel, the two in-house restaurants will provide some very tasty fare too. Room rates start at about £100.
