Did you know that the meaning of Kuala Lumpur is ‘Muddy Estuary”? Be that as it may, Malaysia’s capital city is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country. And, it is a cultural hodge-podge that is certainly going to make you happy.
The place has a lot of tourist attractions and whether you are going in with your friends and family or if you want to try out some girl services for yourself, Kuala Lumpur has a lot of destinations you can explore.
Today, I am going to talk about the 8 places you must visit in KL.
The Kuala Lumpur Convention Center or the KLCC for short has plenty of places you can visit with your friends and family. If you want to marvel at aquatic life, then I highly suggest that you visit the Aquaria.It’s got a 90-meter long transparent tunnel that you can walk through that provides you with a view of over 3,000 different aquatic life forms.
If you were to ask anyone about Kuala Lumpur, they will most likely talk about the Petronas Twin Towers. It has become quite iconic, probably due to the fact that it is considered to be the 7th tallest building in the world.
Anyway, the twin towers are located at the heart of the city and give visitors a nice perspective of the entire city.
This iconic and historic market was once a wet market but has now been repurposed into an area with plenty of historical and artistic pieces. The place is huge and one part known as the Kasturi Walk is also known as the city’s own Chinatown. Here, you can find different stalls offering clothing, Malaysian batiks, handicrafts, shoes, artworks, and even food!
Thean Hou Temple
A temple that was built in dedication to the Goddesses Kuan Yin and Tian Hou, the Thean Hou temple is an architectural marvel to behold. The temple was actually built way back in 1989 by the Hainanese Community and you can liken its design to a combination of traditional and modern styles.
Located at the Bukit Bintang, the Pavilion Mall is just one of the many malls that you can find in the area. I just picked this one in particular due to the fact that it is one of the biggest ones you can find while you are here. It houses more than 450 retail outlets that sell the latest fashion items and accessories, home furnishings, fitness products, and it even has a huge food court for you to dine in as well.
Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman
Kuala Lumpur is known for its amazing food culture and this area just offers people a lot of food and some shopping areas as well. In some parts of the strip, they turn into a night market during the weekends.
Also known simply as the National Museum, it was established way back in 1989. The museum was built just shortly after the country has gained independence from British Colonial Rule. You can find many attractions inside, one of which is the Istana Satu.
Malaysia’s main religion is Islam and the National Mosque happens to be the largest one in the city. In fact, it is so big that it can house a total of 15,000 people all at once.
It has undergone major renovations and has become one of the most amazingly built mosques in the country.
