Kuala Lumpur

OVERVIEW

Kuala Lumpur is the federal capital and the seat of the Parliament of Malaysia. The city has the highest population in Malaysia. Kuala Lumpur is the cultural, financial and economic hub of Malaysia. It is the sixth most visited city in the world, with 8.9 million tourists per year.  Tourism is driven by the city's cultural diversity, relatively low costs and wide variety of attractions.  

Kuala Lumpur is both plural and diverse; it hosts many different religions in harmony. Islam is mainly practised by the Malays and the Indian Muslim communities. However, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taosim and Hinduism are also popular within Malaysia.

 


WEATHER

Kuala Lumpur has a tropical rainforest climate, which is warm and sunny, along with a great deal of rain. The monsoon season is from October to March. Temperatures tend to remain steady. Maximum temperatures are between 31 and 33 °C (88 and 91 °F) and have never exceeded 39.3 °C (102.7 °F), while minimum temperatures are between 22 and 23.5 °C (72 and 74 °F) and have never fallen below 14.4 °C (57.9 °F). Take a look at these climate profiles for Kuala Lumpur which detail the variations in temperature, humidity and precipitation over the year.

Kuala Lumpur typically receives minimum 2,600 mm (100 in) of rain per year. Flooding is frequent in Kuala Lumpur when there is heavy rain, especially in the city centre and downstream areas. To make sure you are not caught in a flood check the current weather conditions for kuala Lumpur.

 

THINGS TO DO

The major tourist destinations in Kuala Lumpur include the Merdeka Square, the House of Parliament, National Palace, Kuala Lumpur Tower, the National Museum, Central Market, the National Monument and religious sites. KL Bird Park is a great family-orientated attraction; it is amongst the world's largest free-flight walk-in aviaries.

The entertainment hub of the city is mainly centred in the Golden Triangle encompassing Jalan P. Ramlee, Jalan Sultan Ismail and Ampang Road. Fashionable nightclubs, bars and lounges, such as the Beach Club, Espanda, the Hakka Republic Wine Bar & Restaurant, Hard Rock Cafe and the Luna Bar etc are located there.

For a dose of culture and history, Batu Caves are located 13 kilometres north of Kuala Lumpur, the caves include one of the most popular Hindu shrines, which is the central point of the Hindu festival of Thaipusam in Malaysia. However, you must climb an exhausting 272 concrete steps to reach the temple but the natural beauty makes it worthwhile. Whilst there, you can also participate in a dark cave expedition and experience bats in their natural habitat.

Kuala Lumpur has 66 shopping malls and is a retail heaven for those of us who love to shop! Bukit Bintang district has the highest concentration of shopping malls and cafes in Kuala Lumpur. A personal recommendation is Berjaya Times Square and Sungei Wang Plaza for great fashion at competitive prices.  For the best bargains around you cannot beat Petaling Street - The Chinatown of Kuala Lumpur.  Petaling Street consists of an outdoor market with a vast array of designer brand knock offs. But be prepared to haggle if you want the right price!

Kuala Lumpur is home to the tallest twin buildings in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers represent Malaysia's impressive development. Suria KLCC is a premium shopping centre, located at the base of the Petronas Twin Towers. It boasts over 400 stores and caters for the more luxury brand conscious. Whether you choose to shop or not, you must experience the breathtaking view of the Petronas.
