Kuala Lumpur, Melaka & Penang - Kuala Lumpur (Chapter)
This is the Kuala Lumpur chapter from Lonely Planet’s Kuala Lumpur, Melaka & Penang guidebook.
KL is the consummate Asian cyber-city: historic temples rub shoulders with space-age shopping malls; traders’ stalls are piled high with pungent durians and counterfeit handbags; monorail cars zip by lush jungle foliage; and locals sip cappuccinos in wi-fi-enabled cafes or feast on delicious streetside hawker food.
- admire the glittering exterior of the Petronas Towers, then head up to the top-floor observation deck
- day or night, bustling Chinatown is a dynamic place to eat, shop and people watch
- restaurants & accommodation
- climb the 272 steps up the side of a limestone outcrop to enter the Batu Caves, home to vividly decorated Hindu temples
Coverage includes: Sights, Activities, Courses, Tours, Festivals & Events, Sleeping, Eating, Entertainment, Around Kuala Lumpur and Klang Valley.
