Kuala Lumpur is a melting pot of Malay and Chinese culture. Its name can be translated to “muddy rivers confluence”, which is symbolic given the influences that both peoples have exerted on the city.

Take a trip to the top of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers and view the entire city. At night, both the towers are brilliantly lit up. In the towers, you can visit the interactive Petrosains Discovery Centre for some hands-on learning. You can also go shopping after, as the area is home to many malls and shopping centers. Then spend some time outdoors at the extensive KLCC Park. The greenspace features a jogging track, a man-made lake, playgrounds for children and even a mosque. The Masjid Wilayah Persekutuan is a breathtaking example of Turkish and Malay religious architectural fusion. Visiting the Sri Mariamman Hindu Temple is also a visual delight. It is covered in brightly colored and intricately carved statues of Hindu deities. For an interesting juxtaposition, visit the Rumah Penghulu Abu Seman, a meticulously restored village headman’s house from the early 20th century.
