Kuala Lumpur Sightseeing – with Wired Destinaitons
The real joy of seeing KL is by indiscriminately exploring, shopping, looking around and food-tasting while making your way through it. Most of the Kuala Lumpur Sightseeing attractions are crowded on weekends and holidays, however, they are mostly abandoned on weekdays. Many of the city's famous attractions are located near Central hotels in the City Center. A good starting point to see the city is from Independence Square, widely known as Merdeka Square, which is the place where Malaysian independence was declared. The Sultan Abdul Samad Building provides the perfect blend of Moorish and Colonial styles. The attractive National Mosque and the Friday Mosque create a contemporary sense of traditional Islamic art and calligraphy. Kuala Lumpur Railway Station houses a small museum about the Malaysian railway history.
There are some other museums in KL that are worth a visit, including the National Museum and the Lake Gardens. Chinatown is KL's commercial hub, with a wide variety of shops and food stalls. There are also many Chinese shrines and temples to be found here. Little India is the heart of colorful Indian culture, with an array of shopping opportunities.
The Golden Triangle is the famous Kuala Lumpur shopping and nightlife venue and many nice Golden Triangle hotels, also home to KL City Center and the modern Petronas Twin Towers, which not long ago was the tallest building on the globe. The Menara Observation Tower is nearby and offers great views of the city and its tall skyscrapers. Menara also houses a restaurant and a small museum.
The Kuala Lumpur beaches are the locals’ holiday destination. Port Dickson, which is located 90 km from KL, has many beautiful beach strips that are great for water leisure activities. There is even a boom of Port Dickson hotels and restaurants serving fresh seafood and spicy local cuisine, so accommodation and a place to dine are never short here.
There are some interesting sights that are located not far from the city. In Putrajaya, some of the main tourists draws include the Putra Mosque, a must see spot in Putrajaya. Three quarters of this charming Islamic architecture floats on the Putrajaya lake, creating an elegant feeling to any visitor staying at a Putrajaya hotel.
Petaling Jaya is located in the state of Selangor offering some outstanding tourist hotspots and Petaling Jaya hotels. Take the LRT from the Kelena Jaya line if you are planning to visit this city as this line covers most of the town's attractions and commercial sections. Some of the major tourist area around Petaling Jaya include Kota Darul Ehsan Arch, an enormous marble arch that is the gateway to town; Chetawan Temple, one of the main Thai Buddhist temples that hosts many Thai royal visitors during religious festivals; Gasing Hill, a true resting area for nature lovers; The Kelana Jaya Lake Park, a large spot great for sport activities as it was one of the venues used for the KL Commonwealth Games in 1998.
