Stay in either of IHG’s two Kuala Lumpur hotels and you will be ideally placed to explore the delights of this fascinating city. With its early roots as a tin mining shanty town, it’s hard to believe that Kuala Lumpur is now a marvellous metropolis. The influence of the city’s financial successes can be seen on the skyline, which is punctuated by some of the tallest buildings in Southeast Asia, including the infamous 88 storey Petronas Twin Towers.
Kuala Lumpur embodies everything you might expect from an Asian super-city. Featuring all of the dynamism of a modern capital, you’ll find state of the art shopping malls, buzzing nightlife, elegant restaurants and cafes on just about every street corner. Art galleries and museums like the Islamic Arts Museum and the National Museum are sure to satisfy culture fans. Entertainment facilities include Genting Highlands, Cosmo’s World and Legoland all prove popular with fun seeking families.
However, there is so much more to see and do if you want to absorb an authentic Malaysian experience. Snacking on diverse and tasty street food at a hawker stall, trawling the vast Central Market or quirky Bazaar Baru Market, or taking a tour of the atmospheric Guandi Temple or historic Masjid Jamek mosque are just a few wonderful ways to wile away the hours.
Away from the city centre the 92 hectare Lake Garden Parks is just yards from the main train station and features pristine parkland and lush tropical jungle, as well as a walk-in aviary in the Bird Park. The Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve is home to an array of wildlife, flora and fauna and also boasts the highest view of the city skyscrapers accessible from the viewing deck of the 421m tall Menara tower. If you are a little weary from wandering the nature trails, you can even dine or take tea in the tower’s revolving restaurant.
