Malaysia has so much to offer the world: it’s a truly fascinating tourist destination, and there are many areas within the country that more than deserve your attention. Nonetheless, it cannot be denied when it comes to symbolising the modern metropolis Malaysia can be, there’s no better example than the spectacular Kuala Lumpur. It’s the capital, the biggest city and the only global city. It has close to 2 million people living there and many more visiting each year. It’s also constantly growing, and faster than any other city in this part of Asia by pretty much any metric you can think of.

This growth and popularity is no coincidence either. Kuala Lumpur isn’t just the biggest tourist attraction, it’s also one of the best cities in Malaysia. It has so much to offer in terms of culture, attractions and experiences that you could spend an entire lifetime here exploring and still never fully get to grips with everything this vast and varied destination has to offer. That’s really the only great shame about visiting somewhere as magnificent as Kuala Lumpur: there’s often simply not enough time to see everything. However, you can certainly have a lot of fun trying.
