Kuala Lumpar Travel

 

 



Kuala Lumpar is considered to be the primary travel hub within Malaysia. An intriguing city which combines the old with the new, and displays a multitude of underlying influences including the Hindu, Muslim and Christian religions. In many ways Kuala Lumpar is an intriguing fusion of eastern and western culture, a quick jaunt along a typical street shows traditional Islamic dress alongside well known western designer labels. Kuala Lumpar makes a great choice of stop over location, with much to offer the short term visitors such as the Jamek Mosque, originally the central focal point of the Islamic faith.

Step into the Golden Triangle area that encompasses the twin towers, the central business district bounded by Jalan Sultan Ismail, Jalan Ampang, Jalan Tun Perak, and Jalan Bukit Bintang, where Jalan is Malay for street. Choc a bloc with skyscrapers of varying degrees of artistic merit housing billion dollar businesses, this stretch of KL is a tangible token of a booming economy. Mammoth shopping malls, superb dining outlets, art galleries, museums, and theatres co-exist with multi-national businesses and showrooms. This is also where folks loosen up after a day of hard work. At sun down the streets literally lighten up in more ways than one and the restaurants, bars, and night clubs make their presence felt.

The Petronas towers by night is a sight to behold, and this is best done from a park bench in the vicinity. Bathed in ethereal beauty against the dark night sky, it's hard to believe it's just concrete and glass. Enter its vast portals to be transported to a mini-city with its own share of shopping, dining, and amusements galore. A trip to the 42 nd floor takes you to the connecting sky bridge from where you get mind blowing city views and a different perspective of the towers themselves.

A fun thing to do is grab a long, cool drink and watch the waterworks and light display at the base every evening at dusk. The City Centre or KLCC in the vicinity is a superb shopping venue for everything from shoes to designer wear. Of course, KL being a veritable shopper's paradise, every mall would seem better and bigger than the last. But having said that, there's something to be said for this particular location where good food, relaxation, and great views come together to complete the experience.
