Kuala Lumpur also known as KL. the capital city of Malaysia. It has grown from a small sleepy Chinese tin-mining village to a bustling metropolis of around 6.5 million in just 150 years. With the world's cheapest 5-star hotels, great shopping malls and even local food. Every year millions of travellers from all over the world vtsited this city.Recommended for:

At first KL was just a place I transited through en route between Thailand and Singapore. But the more time I spent in the city, the more I came to really look forward to my visits there. Wandering the street hawker alleys, stepping inside white marble mosques, joining the high-tech shopping madness, craning my neck up at the Petronas Twin Towers...it all grew on me, and now KL is one of my favorite Southeast Asian cities to take a few days off in.Recommended for:

This is a great place to grab a bite to eat, do a bit of shopping, and watch the world go by. The mall has a good range of Asian and more western restaurants and shops. The shops seemed to be grouped largely by type of merchandise on offer. As suggested by Country Travel Mart we went to this nice place to pass a few hours.Recommended for:

The easiest way to combat Kuala Lumpur heat is to cool off in shopping malls, rehydrate in uber-trendy bars and grab posh nosh at your pick of global restaurants. To rest my weary head, the exquisite Mandarin Oriental is flawless. My sumptuous suite boasts floor-to-ceiling glass views of the Petronas Towers from lounge, and dining room for 10, complete with handpicked art. Meet friends for a late-night swim and drinks before retiring to a designer Orient-themed bedroom.Recommended for:

Kuala Lumpur (KL to the locals) is a sultry yet sanitized mish-mash of Indian, Chinese and Malay cultures. For a predominantly Muslim country, it's wildly tolerant (pork products are readily available in Chinatown), easy to scoot about capital city with lots of distractions including outstanding nightlife, cinemas, cultural events and massage parlors galore.Recommended for:

The prosperous, gritty, diverse heart of Malaysia, KL is a place that virtually everyone ends up (Thanks, Air Asia!) at one time or another. Still, though it lacks the blockbuster sights of Bangkok or Beijing, the fine, big-city blend of Malay, Chinese. and Indian cultures (and food!) make this a rewarding place to pass a couple of days. Like many other SE Asia cities, it's also a shopping and partying mecca, though such pursuits, as anywhere, quickly take a toll on the wallet.Recommended for:

Nation's capital, Kuala Lumpur offeres various fun. Food scene in KL is one of the best in Asia, religious sites, various interesting neighbourhoods and also night life. Plan your time wisely in Kuala Lumpur, you'll need at least a few days to enjoy this interesting town.Recommended for:

Very Bad Experience in Kuala Lumpur for a week with family. The Hop-On Hop-Off site seeing bus guide misbehaving with tourists and he is not aware of the privileges given by the MTIC and drag me to the Police station. We will not suggest or recommend Hop-on and Hop-off for the family site seeing trip.

KL is a clean and modern sprawling city with great restaurants, loads of shopping malls, and interesting places to go sightseeing (e.g. Petronas Twin Towers, Batu Caves, KL Bird Park.) Be forewarned though that the transit system is confusing since each rail line is owned by a different company. Thus, you have to pay each time you transfer. With expenses on taxis, it can kind of get irritating because you end up spending more than you'd like on transportation.Recommended for:

Many backpackers brush off and blow through Malaysia's capital, Kuala Lumpur, only to move on to more interesting places. True, it does have it's share of uninteresting air-conditioned malls and international-brand shopping, but if you take some time to explore KL, you'll be rewarded. There's some old architecture, great shopping, the Petronas Towers, and some of the best food in Asia.Recommended for:

We stayed in Kuala Lumpur for three nights and really enjoyed it. Very clean and easy to get around. We stayed at the Ritz Carlton which was beautiful. A visit to the Islamic Arts Museum is a must. We went to Petronas Towers but I didn't realise you needed to book ahead so wasn't able to go up. Disappointing, so make sure you book in advance.

Spent 4 days / 3 nights in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Enough time to explore KLCC but not remote areas of Malaysia. Simply put it this way, only standing in front of the Petronas Towers worth the trip, it's such an amazing piece of arts, to me they are a definitely a wonder of the world of our modern time.

Kuala Lumpur is a very modern city that still has neighborhoods where traditional charms still exist. Every visit always include experience and sights of both. It is one of my favorite cities in Asia.

Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia. I liked coming here as part of my study abroad experience but it doesn't rank up there. Outside of malls and the Petronas Tower you can't really get much of this city - I'll need to come back again but for now, my review is 3 stars for the boredom.

The bastion of modernity is a great place to explore the best of what Malaysia has to offer in terms of food, shopping, and modern architecture. No real need to spend more than a few days but worth a stop just to see Petronas and take a dip in the pool at the Mandarin Oriental.
