The capitol city of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, is a huge metropolis with a strong economy, rich history, and vibrant culture. Thousands of visitors come every year to see landmarks such as the Petronas Twin Towers, taste the local cuisine, and shop at the Suria KLCC mall.


Kuala Lumpur is filled with cultural, religious, and modern attractions. Visit the Royal Museum, housed in the former Royal Palace, for a look at how the Kings of Malaysia lived. The Batu Caves are home to Hindu shrines and temples and also host the yearly Thaipusam festival; they are also a very popular rock climbing destination.
