Kuala Lumpur

About Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur profile image.

Kuala Lumpur is the capital city of Malaysia. What once used to be a Chinese mining site has evolved into a metropolitan city. It is filled with skyscrapers, malls as well as tourism sites.

Kuala Lumpur is also filled with numerous delicacies wherever you go. These delicacies are also a reflection of the many cultures and ethnicities that inhabit this metropolitan city too. Among the many must try’s include nasi lemak, fried kuey teow, cendol, and the list goes on.

Much of the many areas in Kuala Lumpur are accessible through public transportation. Recently bolstered by the developments of the MRT, the extension of LRT line, Grab and Uber, there is arguably no place in Kuala Lumpur you cannot get to.

It is also home to the most number of bus pickup points. There was a time when Pudu Sentral was the sole transportation hub for express buses, but due to the heavy commute traffic, terminals such as Terminal Bersepadu Selatan, Hentian Duta, the old KTM Railway station, and the relatively new KL Sentral and many others have emerged, making it all the easier to travel by bus to and within the city.

A good way to sightsee around Kuala Lumpur is to board the KL Hop-On Hop-Off city tour as it covers over 70 attractions within the city. It is relatively cheap and is available throughout the year including public holidays.
