Kuala Lumpur Vacations

The capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur has quietly become one Malaysia’s most popular and accommodating tourist locations. Once a sleepy Chinese tin-mining village, Kuala Lumpur, which literally means “muddy estuary,” has developed into a multi-million resident modern metropolis. Here, some of the cheapest five-star hotels in the world can be found, ... Read more
like the Madarin Oriental or the Hilton Kuala Lumpur, but just because the hotels are cheap doesn't mean that Kuala Lumpur is lacking in things to do. You can find great shopping opportunities throughout the city, including at the Midvalley Megamall located to the south of the city proper. Excellent food like saree and banana leaf rice can be found on truly any street corner but places like Damansara and Hartamas in particular have an extensive selection of eateries and drinking spots. A rail system makes getting around Kuala Lumpur easier, and the main regional station, KL Sentral, is south of this Malaysian Capital. The Batu Caves, a national Zoo, and the towering Petronas Twin Towers round out a solid selection of fascinating attractions in this increasingly popular tourist favorite.

Plan to sweat in Kuala Lumpur, and pack extra changes of clothes accordingly. The temperature all year sticks to a pretty consistent average of 90F (32C). With the mercury out as a good judge for when to go, ... Read more
travelers are left to decide based on two other factors: rain and festivals. The heavy rains and humidity peak in March/April and October/November, although the clouds don’t disappear the rest of the year, so pack an umbrella. If you’d like to visit the Malaysian capital during a festival, National Day on August 31 is one of the most popular. Other choice celebrations include Chinese New Year and the Hindu Diwali festival. Book well in advance if you go during these times.
