Top Things to Do in Kuala Lumpur

Whether you are looking for an exciting weekend getaway or a lengthy holiday full of cultural learnings, office Kuala Lumpur has much to offer. Food, sites, culture and fun attractions make this capital city a place for a short or long holiday either on your own or with family and friends.

Probably the number one and most obvious attraction in Kuala Lumpur is the Petronas Towers block. The Petronas Twin Towers are functioning business offices as well as a tourist site and shopping mall. If you visit the towers in the early morning you will see many different people arriving at work for the day dressed in traditional business wear. Some of the most senior professionals in Malaysia work in the twin towers including employees of Microsoft, IBM, Boeing, Reuters and Al Jazeera. The Petronas Twin Towers have stunning views of the city as well as one of the best art museums in Southeast Asia.

For more in the way of art and museums you might try visiting Petrosains. Petrosains is a discovery and science museum for both children and adults where you can interact with advanced technological displays. Unfortunately the centre is closed on Mondays but it is open for the rest of the week and most definitely worth your while to visit.

Another technology-focused display is located at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. The convention centre itself is worth a visit just for the views it offers, but it is also the home to Kuala Lumpur’s premier aquarium – Aquaria. Aquaria has a number of different water animas on display and also includes a fantastic underwater tunnel similar to something you might have seen in the movie Jaws 4. There are sharks as well though they are of course rather harmless from the safety of your tunnel view.

For more nature and animals try visiting the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park. As the largest aviary in Malaysia, this stunning park helps visitors learn more about a bird’s world. You will have the opportunity to learn about the birds’ natural habitats and dietary needs as well as see species you would normally have very little interaction with.
