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 Lumpurand map Kuala-Lumpa 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...

  • Menara

    Телебашня Менара

    Menara needs to be in your program, if you decide not to climb the Petronas. View the city from a bird's eye view is required, and the views from here are not inferior to the views from the twin towers. 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 simulator, a mini-zoo. At the foot of the towers is completely free to walk through the cultural Park, designed as a traditional Malay village. Read more about Menara here...

  • Batu Caves

    Вход в пещеры Бату

    Batu caves – the most famous cultural attraction of the capital. The caves themselves, however, are located outside the city, but you can get there by taxi, Shuttle, subway or bus does not make any difficulties. In the caves, which are located in slope of mount Batu, there are several cave temples the Hindus, who are one of the most important places and to the pilgrimage of the faithful. The entrance to the cave is guarded by a huge statue of Murugan – son of Shiva.

    To get to the caves, have some work to do as it is necessary to overcome the stairs and 272 steps, but these efforts are well worth it. Inside you will see some unusual cave temples, which never are deserted due to the large number of local people who worship Hindu deities. Read more about Batu caves here...

  • 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. 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. Read more about Chinatown here...

This is a small list, in our opinion, the minimum that you should definitely see in Kuala Lumpur. If you allow time, be sure to visit other interesting places in Kuala Lumpur including Bukit (shopping in endless malls), little India (another colorful district), Masjid Jamek (the oldest mosque in the capital), the Botanical garden and the bird Park, many museums and temples, the Royal Palace.

September was flying from Bali to Seoul a low-cost carrier airasia via Kuala Lumpur. Specially made dock 12 hours. I walked the entire downtown, while getting to the Petronas twin towers, the whole day there, and spent.

Please tell me we fly from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur after 4 hours flight to Seoul with another airline and will need to get Luggage and check it again, whether I understood what kind of Luggage you need to take a ride on the automatic train Aerotrain, go through passport control then go to baggage, then climbed to the fifth floor to register, check-in baggage and return back to the satellite terminal??? ...
admin 22 Dec 2017, 10:07
Need to clarify whether you have to change terminal from international to budget, because there is also fly international flights. If there is a change, that's right, you get the Luggage, but then do not return to satellite and go to KLIA2 on aerotrain - https://nashaplaneta.net/asia/malaysia/ ... kliatolcct.
If you are not changing terminals, you will have to do as you described. But just in case, verify at check-in and Luggage delivery, can make out from to the end point. This, of course, is unlikely, so it is not accepted, sometimes they are combined flights, when the plane of one airline and tickets from different airlines. ...
