Карта Куала-Лумпура с достопримечательностями и отелями

The capital of Malaysia Kuala Lumpur is undoubtedly one of the most popular tourist centers of the country. Despite the complete absence of a beach holiday destination there is always plenty. Most of them do in the capital a short stop in a day or two at the beginning or at the end of the trip as close to the main gate to the country – the international airport of Kuala Lumpur. Therefore particularly important is the question about what the capital's sights you should visit first, and what can be left for later. For this we have prepared a small list of the most interesting places in Kuala Lumpur, which, in our estimation, worth a visit in the first place.

If the time you have enough, then you can make your program stay, visit our full list of sights of Kuala Lumpur, and map of Kuala Lumpur attractions.

  • Petronas Twin Towers

    Башни близнецы Петронас

    Petronas twin towers – of course, the symbol and icon of Malaysia. This architectural marvel is not just one of the most important places for tourists in Kuala Lumpur, but sometimes become the main reason for the visit to the capital. To see them with your own eyes is necessary, and they should be first in your program.

    Not only can you see the tower from the outside, take a walk on the chic Mall at the foot of the towers and watch the evening fountain show in the Park on the back side of skyscrapers, but also to climb the bridge and observation deck in the tower. However, it is a pleasure as much as 85 Ringgits (which is about 1150 rubles), and to buy tickets, it is not so simple. Therefore, many tourists prefer to visit the tower just before sunset (around 18:30), walk around the Mall and wait for the darkness here, and then at 21:00 to watch the light and music fountain show. But look at Kuala Lumpur with a bird's eye prefer the Menara, which is simpler and cheaper, and the views from the top, not less exciting. Read more about Petronas twin towers here...

  • National Mosque (Masjid Negara)

This extraordinary building is ready to accommodate during prayers to 15,000. In addition, the mosque can be seen not only outside but also inside. Read more about National mosque here...

  • Independence square (Dataran Merdeka or Merdeka Square)

    Площадь независимости

    Independence square surrounded by beautiful buildings, which at first sight may be taken for these palaces. However, this is only the administrative building and museums. On the square is a beautiful fountain and the spire with the flag of Malaysia.

    The word "square" is not the right definition of this place, because this area is covered with grass pad, which can walk anyone who wants.

    It is especially interesting to visit this place after dark, when the surrounding buildings are beautifully illuminated. Read more about independence square here...

  • Chinatown and the night market on Petaling street

    Вход в Чайнатаун

    As in almost every city, Kuala Lumpur has its Chinatown (Chinatown). And here he is one of the most colorful and popular for evening walks places of the city. The day there is nothing much to do, but with the coming of darkness Petaling street in the heart turns into a big marketplace where you can buy anything from Souvenirs, clothes, bags, toys, pirated CDs, watches, jewelry, unusual food to try.
