Now that the holiday season has passed and temperatures are warming, it is time to begin planning a summer vacation. Instead of visiting the same beach or cabin, consider a holiday Kuala Lumpur style.
As the capital city of Malaysia, the southeastern Asian town offers activities for every walk of life. The diverse will enjoy meeting locals of various cultures, and the foodie will delight in Tamil eateries that replace plates with banana leaves. Families should definitely attend the “world’s largest free-flight walk in aviary” that is the KL Bird Park, or wander through the natural Batu Caves. The artistically inclined can check out the city’s crafty pulse at the Central Market or one of several museums, including the famed Islamic Arts Museum and the exhibitions of MAP.
Serving as a symbol of Malaysia’s technological ambitions and modernism, the 88 story Petronas Twin Towers are a staple of any Kuala Lumpur getaway. The towers lay in a park complete with an automotive merry go round and plentiful jogging trails. Guests get a great view of the city from the twin tower’s observation deck and 170 meter high Sky Bridge. The Petronas Towers also serve as a backdrop for the bustling night life of downtown.
The city’s Bukit Ceylon strip offers night life venues for every taste. Guests can enjoy drinks, dancing, and even poetry and jazz. With so many clubs, pubs, bars, and lounges, every personality will be satisfied; visitors can choose to have a relaxing night with a pint or attend a swanky party at one of many five star establishments.
The capital city hosts over 300 hotels, thousands of restaurants, and sights to see around every corner. Schedule a summer holiday Kuala Lumpur to take advantage of the mild climate, delightful locals, and everything the metropolis has to offer.
