Kuala Lumpur, also known as KL is the capital city of Malaysia, boasting gleaming skyscrapers, colonial architecture, charming locals, and a myriad of natural attractions. Divided into numerous districts, its main hub is called the Golden Triangle which comprises Bukit Bintang, KLCC and Chinatown. KL is widely recognised for numerous landmarks, including Petronas Twin Towers (the world’s tallest twin skyscrapers), Petaling Street flea market, and Batu Caves, which is over 400 million years old.
With frequent sales events throughout the year, expansive shopping malls like Pavilion KL and Suria KLCC are also among the biggest tourist attractions in the city, hosting a wide range of upmarket labels from all over the world. There is the abundance of gastronomic delights – with thousands of hawker stalls, cafes, and restaurants serving every imaginable type of delicacies in Kuala Lumpur.

The transportation in Kuala Lumpur is just great. The entire city can be explored by taxi, bus, train and metro. However, the main junctions in KL city center are often extremely crowded (usually from 8am to 9am and from 6.30pm to 8pm). Apart from that you can use public transportation to travel from KL to other cities in Malaysia.
With bustling KL Sentral Station, the largest train station in Southeast Asia -- serving as the hub, three ambitious rail systems tie the city together. The RapidKL LRT and KTM Komuter train service over 100 stations, while the KL Monorail connects 11 more stations dotted around the city center. Although seemingly complex at first glance, the trains are actually a well priced and fairly efficient alternative to plying through Kuala Lumpur's infamous traffic.
Taxis should be a last resort for getting around Kuala Lumpur, both because of the cost and the need to inch through traffic-clogged streets. If you must use a taxi, insist that the driver uses the meter; they are technically required by law to use it but often try to name a price instead. The red-and-white taxis are the cheapest, while the blue taxis are more expensive. Taxi drivers who loiter around bus and train terminals to stalk tourists are typically the ones that want to haggle rather than use the meter. Even once the meter is turned on, don't be surprised if they do a few circles to run up your fare!
Buses in Kuala Lumpur are an extremely cheap option for getting around the city, however, they are frequently crowded and make frequent stops in heavy traffic. Many long-haul buses from Kuala Lumpur to destinations such as Penang and the Perhentian Islands depart from the newly renovated Puduraya bus terminal -now called Pudu Sentral- near Kuala Lumpur Chinatown.
*KL Hop-On Hop-Off Buses
You'll occasionally catch a glance of the double-decker hop-on-hop-off buses circulating throughout their 22-stop route. The tour buses hit all the major sights in KL, offer commentary in eight languages, and as the name suggests, you can get on and off as many times as you like between 8:30 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. with a single ticket purchase. While the buses are supposed to pass by their stands every 15 minutes to collect passengers, many customers report waiting much longer; the buses are subject to city traffic like all other road vehicles.
