Discovering the sights and sounds of Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia has come a long way. From being a small, unknown country, it has transformed itself into a leading financial and trade center in Asia. With development comes the inevitable boost in tourism. The rich culture, unique cuisine and friendly people are only a few reasons why Malaysia has seen such a sharp increase in tourism over the years. In this article, we focus on the country’s bustling capital city, Kuala Lumpur!

Another big reason why Malaysia’s tourist industry is doing so well is that the country is not overly priced. For westerners, it is considered the ideal place for an economical holiday. You can get a cheap airline booking  anytime of the year but the deals get sweeter during the off season. Once you have made a cheap airline booking, you have no other major expenses to worry about. Kuala Lumpur can be discovered in as little as $100 per day and even less. How cool is that?

Weather Conditions
Weather remains hot and humid all year round in Kuala Lumpur but definitely is not unbearable. All the indoors are normally fully air-conditioned. Outdoors is not too bad either. It gets pretty good if it rains. So yes, a big plus about Kuala Lumpur is that you can visit pretty much anytime of the year.

The Best Shopping Spots
You can find plenty of great shopping in a big and urban city like Kuala Lumpur. But not every spot is worth the visit. We recommend that you visit Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Central Market Kuala Lumpur, Berjaya Times Square, Suria KLCC, Fahrenheit88, The Gardens Mall and Sunway Putra Mall.

The Top Tourist destinations
1. Genting Highlands
A trip to Malaysia is incomplete if you don’t visiting this famous hill resort that boasts stunning sceneries, great malls, mountains and cable cars.

2. Petronas Towers
We have all seen someone get a selfie with the Burj Khalifa in the background. Basically Petronas Towers are the Burj Khalifa of Malaysia. The iconic twin towers are the tallest twin towers of the world.

3. Batu Caves
Caves and caves temples are always intriguing, which is why Batu caves are a top tourist attraction in not only Malaysia but all of Asia. Many Hindu festivals are held here and the place is bustling with people all year round.

4. Kuala Lumpur Bird Park
Connecting with nature and wildlife is always a wonderful experience. The Kuala Lumpur Bird Park houses countless species of birds, some of which are truly a sight to behold. Within the park is a lake and all around are wonderful gardens that feature some amazing plants.

5. National Mosque of Malaysia
Since Malaysia is an Islamic country, it is naturally home to some pretty amazing mosques. The mosque that garners most attention is the National Mosque of Malaysia. Amidst the gardens stands this beautiful and serene mosque. Its architecture and interior is a source of wonder for all tourists.
