Asia’s magical melting pot
If you travel to Malaysia, you must visit Kuala Lumpur, or ‘KL’ for all those that live there. It’s one of South East Asia’s major business and shopping hubs, so major that recently it was voted the 4th best shopping paradise on the entire planet! With stunning and ambitious architecture, including the steel and glass facade of Petronas Twin Towers – the world’s tallest twin towers, KL has much to offer the visitor.
Kuala Lumpur’s airport, one of the most modern in all South East Asia, is linked to the city by an express train service. Despite increasing modernity, tradition is still very much respected. The museums and historical monuments, such as Merdeka Square, the National Palace and the National Museum, as well as spiritual sites like the Jamek Mosque and the extraordinary Batu Caves, are must-visits.
The area around Bukit Bintang is a popular meeting place with myriad restaurants and endless shopping opportunities. The commercial centres, from Pavilion to Berjaya Times Square, including the trendy Suria KLCC, house international brands of cosmetics, fashion and accessories.
KL is also a paradise for electronic and information technology, and is a great place to update your personal technological needs. In collaboration with Malaysian Airlines, Air Mauritius offers several connections to other favourite destinations.
