The capital of Malaysia has a huge cultural diversity to offer, which is reflected in the numerous leisure activities. We will show you, what you should not miss during your visit:

Petronas Towers

During your stay in Kuala Lumpur, you should not miss a visit to the Petronas Towers. With 452 meters and 88 floors, the towers secure the title of the largest twin building in the world. The observation deck on the 86th floor offers an incredible view over the entire metropolis. There is also the possibility to walk from one tower to the other via the skywalk. But that is by no means all. Although the towers are largely used as office buildings, there are also other exciting features for visitors. These include restaurants, cafes, a huge shopping mall and the KLCC Park, which is located at the base of the towers.

Bird and Butterfly Park

Nature and animal lovers take note! Kuala Lumpur offers exciting parks where you can observe both birds and butterflies of Malaysia. The bird park is the largest free flight aviary of its kind and covers an area of about 8 hectares. Over 3000 different birds of all species live here. These include flamingos, peacocks, bouquets, but also many species of birds you’ve probably never heard of! The colorful butterfly park is one of the largest butterfly gardens in the world. Here you can discover about 6000 different and beautiful species. The park invites you to take long walks in the tropical rainforest scenery.

National Museum

If you are interested in the history of Malaysia, you should definitely visit the National Museum. Here you will learn everything about prehistory, the arrival of Islam, the colonial period and the current state of the country. Divided into four different galleries, you can visit very different exhibitions in the beautiful buildings and broaden your horizons.

Central Market

The market hall is located not far from China Town. On two floors you can stroll around and shop. The market offers many different stalls – from food to clothes, art, sweets, but also souvenirs. You will also find food stalls here – so you can try your way through the culinary delights of Malaysia. Thanks to air conditioning, you can also relax and take a breather from the tropical climate. The hall is definitely worth a visit. However, since it is mainly tourists who come here, we would recommend that you also visit a traditional market in Kuala Lumpur.

Batu Caves

The Batu Caves are located about 15 kilometers north of the metropolis and are therefore very easy to reach. Batu Caves became famous mainly because of the huge golden statue of the god Murugan. This measures over 40 meters. To get to the beautiful caves, you first have to climb 270 colorful steps. Everything is surrounded by little monkeys, which are not at all shy of contact and like to grab feet or the camera from the hand of one or the other visitor. The caves themselves are up to 100 meters high and incredibly impressive. Also exciting are the regular ceremonies and rituals. A real highlight is the Thaipusam Festival, which you should not miss if you are there during that time.
