The capital city of Malaysia is Kuala Lumpur and like many capital cities you will notice distinct architecture, towering skyscrapers, and friendly locals. Explore the nightlife and local restaurants but when you are ready to leave the city for an outdoor exhibition don’t forget to visit the Batu Caves. 400 million-year-old hills made of limestone with an over 100-year old temple inside is the jewel of the annual Hindu festival of Thaipusam.
It’s modern skyline is dominated by the 451m-tall Petronas Twin Towers, a pair of glass-and-steel-clad skyscrapers with Islamic motifs. The towers also offer a public skybridge and observation deck.
The Sultan Abdul Samad Building is among Kuala Lumpur’s earliest Moorish-style buildings. Built in 1897 and was named after the reigning sultan of Selangor at the time. The distinguished landmark originally served as the secretariat for the colonial British administration.
You can make a day trip to Batu Caves, one of the most frequented tourist attractions, is a limestone hill comprising three major caves and a number of smaller ones. Lookout for the monkeys on the steps!! (they WILL try to take anything from you that they see and want.) Batu Caves is the focal point of the annual Hindu festival of Thaipusam, which attracts thousands of devotees and visitors.
