Attractions in Kuala Lumpur

Want to know what are the top KL attractions? Perhaps you are new to Kuala Lumpur or just here for a short visit? What are the most popular things to do and places to see?

Here is my suggested list of the Top 10 best tourist sights in the city. People's tastes and interests vary so you may not agree with all of the top KL attractions on this list but hopefully there is something for everyone

1. Petronas Twin Towers/KLCC

Probably the most famous and frequently photographed Malaysian landmark, this striking building was, for a time, the world's tallest at 452m. You can queue for a ticket to visit the skybridge but you do not really need to - the best place to admire the construction is at ground level from a spot in the adjoining park known as KLCC. A trip to the Twin Towers could include visiting the giant shopping mall (Suria KLCC) at the foot of the towers, the Petrosains museum, Aquaria (an impressive oceanarium) or even a concert at the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra. 

2. Menara Kuala Lumpur - KL Tower

Another massive structure is the KL Tower, a 421m high telecommunications and broadcasting tower and one of the world's tallest. Built on top of a small hill, its height above sea level is 515m and you can get the best views of KL and the surrounding districts from its observation deck and revolving restaurant.

At the foot of the Tower is Bukit Nanas, a surviving area of rainforest in the heart of the city which is open to explore.

3. Merdeka Square

The copper-domed Sultan Abdul Samad Building on Merdeka Square in the heart of the city is probably KL's most recognizable landmark. Together with its neighbouring heritage buildings this is one of the capital's top tourist attractions.

Take a look at my Kuala Lumpur Heritage Trail page for a suggested itinerary covering the main highlights in this area.

4. KL Railway Station

An equally famous historic landmark is the old Kuala Lumpur Railway Station built in 1910 in Anglo-Mughal architectural style and designed by AB Hubback who was also the architect for many other famous buildings in Malaysia .

Railway enthusiasts and heritage lovers will appreciate the station building which contains a modest railway museum.

5. Kuala Lumpur Lake Gardens

This green lung in the heart of the city contains many of the top KL attractions such as Tugu Negara, the popular KL Bird Park, the neighbouring Orchid & Hibiscus Gardens, the nearby Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park and some of KL's top museums such as the excellent Islamic Arts Museum and the fascinating Royal Malaysian Police Museum.
