It’s been called "a city within a city", and one thing’s for sure: the city centre is the place to be if you want to stay close to the fabulous shopping, incredible food, pumping nightlife and legendary landmarks of Kuala Lumpur
. And with big tourist attractions like the Batu Caves close at hand too, there’s so many reasons to visit this vibrant city. Book your perfect stay in Kuala Lumpur City from our range of hotels and accommodation.
Officially opened to the public in 1998, K.L City Centre is a 100-acre project designed to be an entertainment and leisure centre.
Things to do
Check out those towering skyscrapers that give K.L its unique skyline: the Petronas Towers. Visible from all over the city, they offer sweeping views from the observation deck and the Skybridge, which connects the two towers together.
Fulfill one of the major requirements of any Kuala Lumpur bucket list by visiting the Batu Caves. These impressive limestone caves feature temples, statues, Hindu shrines and scurrying monkeys.
Keen for a night out on the town? Experience the best of K.L after-hours with a night at a rooftop cocktail lounge, sweaty dance club or upmarket bar / restaurant. There are live music venues offering everything from indie rock to jazz too.
Shopping and dining
Shop at Suria KLCC, the shopping mall next to Petronas Towers with an aquarium, a music hall, a 50-acre tropical park and a range of shops including electronic goods and designer clothes. Avenue K has six floors and a selection of designer brands, while five-floor Isetan combines fashion and gourmet food. Speaking of food, you won’t want to miss K.L Central’s range of restaurants. Traditional Malaysian, other Asian cuisine and even western food are served up in fine dining style in glitzy surrounds, often with superb views of the Petronas Towers and the shining city at night.
