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...

Visit the observation deck is only 49 ringgit against 80 in., and tickets are always available at the entrance, and access is open 365 days a year from 9:00 to 22:00.

    In addition to the observation deck in Menara offers several additional entertainment: a small aquarium, XD cinema, F1 car simulator, mini-zoo.

  • National Mosque (Masjid Negara)

    Национальная мечеть Куала-Лумпура

    Malaysia – an Islamic country. Therefore it is impossible to miss the main mosque of the country and at the same time an architectural masterpiece, the 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.

Yes, everything is simple: if a shortage of time and the question is between the choice to visit the "dead city" of Putrajaya or Malacca, Melaka of course. And in Kuala Lumpur in less than a day to see anything in no time. They still have time to eat, have a good rest after each move, and walking, etc.
What kasaetsya in Donmuang, then stand there just is, but will they solve your problems or only sell tickets, not ready to say. In any case, the closer to departure, the darkness is less likely to change. And bomb them of course you need your rightness.
I do not understand how it all happened: They just took changed the date and sent you that now fly then? After all, there must be an agreement and the proposal to abandon the ticket or to change such options? The idea is you have the right to cancel your booking and receive money, and then own again to rebook on the desired date. ...

Why should I give a company your money for unused services? Moreover, they are the rules a company must do to exchange them. I fly them for the first time and the two immediately cancelled. And if I Southeast Asia and like I go often, so every time the shoals EIR ASI to pay? I find it easier to learn once , and then only to act according to a proven scheme. No? ...

Why to give, for the full refund? ...
Inna V 30 January, 2019

Tickets can be purchased at a promotional rate during the promotional period. Now they are more expensive. And second, I want to learn how to do Asjha what others and/or companies is never a problem. I sincerely wish to Southeast Asia I love to go back again and again. So this experience is useful to me. And judging by the statistics of a replacement flight at ASI, for me it has to be - what water to drink.
Totally agree with you that the paragraph 3 - the path of least resistance. Why then stated point number 1 ? For whom?
For the new theme "Exchange and return of tickets" required purity of the experiment :suicide ...
admin 30 January, 2019

So, as I suggested earlier. They are everyone who is not a promotional rate and moved at the same date, and those who are on a promotional to other scattered and not even offered that date, I understand. Likely to change very little, is likely to show that there are no seats, because at this rate they are really not. And support will be dynamite, or so the same answer then that there is no space. This is just my assumption, really hope that all of you work :Super: . ...

admin 4 March, 2019

Most likely not. Look closely at the itinerary, you are likely to arrive in KLIA and depart from KLIA2. If so, then go through passport control, and went down on the train to get to KLIA2. If the terminal is a genuine one, then right. ...
