Kuala Lumpur or KL is the must-visit largest city and capital of Malaysia. Interestingly Kuala Lumpur was never on my bucket list but now I became a fan of this modern and traditional city. There are so much to explore in Kuala Lumpur from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) to the city. The best part is to capture the skyline of Kuala Lumpur, enjoy shopping, and eat a lot of street food. First time I got attracted truly by any city tour and so here are 10 photos to inspire you to visit Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.
Kuala Lumpur city tour is incomplete without a walking tour of the old city center or Chinatown. A walking tour from Merdeka Square to Petaling Street will take you explore many popular landmarks and things. Mostly tourists enjoy this old town or Chinatown for budget hotels and shopping. I loved the old Kuala Lumpur city for amazing traditional old buildings and architecture. And then Bukit Bintang for Petronas Twin Towers is the main attraction for all kind of travelers. But I truly amazed to see the extreme panoramic view of Kuala Lumpur city from the top of KL Tower or Menara Kuala Lumpur.
