You’ll spend the day flitting between Kuala Lumpur’s best bits, ranging from traditional sights to modern marvels. After you’ve been driven into the city centre, the checklist starts with a visit to the National Museum. Here, you’ll be able to witness authentic Malay culture, ancient artefacts and traditional musical instruments. One of the nation’s most visited spots is next on the to-do list – Independence Square. The pristine lawns in the centre were once used as a cricket pitch, and the Malaysian colours fly from one of the world’s tallest flagpoles at the southern end. Check out the bustling lanes of Central Market, before stopping for lunch at a local restaurant. Next, you can pose for pictures at the foot of the city’s most iconic attraction – the twin Petronas Towers. Last on the agenda’s an elevator ride to the observation deck of the KL Tower – a needle-like structure that offers panoramas across the skyline.
Don’t worry about choosing between Kuala Lumpur’s natural and manmade wonders – on this trip you’ll get to see both. The Batu Caves are first on the agenda, and you’ll have time to explore the vast limestone halls which were carved out millions of years ago. After you’ve climbed the 350-step staircase to reach the entrance, you’ll see a gilded statue of a Hindu god towering above you. Inside, the craggy rock faces have idols and shrines dotted between them. You’ll head into the city next for a spot of lunch and a haggling session at the vibrant Central Market. Things wrap with photo stops at a couple of the city’s poster boys – the National Palace and the mighty Petronas Towers.
Sightseeing and shopping sandwich one of Kuala Lumpur’s main attractions on this trip – the Petronas Towers. Independence Square starts things off – you’ll stop here for pictures with the pristine lawns and historic buildings in the background. Next up, it’s the main event. The twin Petronas Towers were once the tallest buildings in the world, and the views from the upper floors take in the entire city. Head to the double-decker Skybridge – which connects the buildings on the 41st and 42nd floors – for the best panoramas. Capture bird’s eye pictures of the surrounding scenery, then head back to ground level for part three. Suria KLCC is a shopping mall right at the foot of the towers, blending upscale stores and restaurants with attractions like an aquarium and an art gallery. You’ll have a wedge of free time for shopping before catching the bus back to port.
