Like its stopover counterpart, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur is a fascinating mix of modern skyscrapers and colonial buildings, reflecting traditions of empire.
Home to towering buildings such as the iconic Petronas Towers and Menara KL tower, that sit alongside beautiful parks, buzzing markets and well preserved historic buildings, you won’t be short of things to do during your stopover.
Head to City Park where you can enjoy a relaxed morning strolling or an evening meander around Symphony Hall, out of the heat and away from the city hubbub, before heading to the Traders Hotel’s award winning sky bar for a cocktail or two with the breath-taking backdrop of the Petronus towers and Kuala Lumpur city scape to enjoy.
You’ll find vestiges of old KL in the architecture of the Anglican Cathedral, the white and cream railway station, and the Sultan Abdul Samad building opposite the cricket ground. Chinatown and the Little India neighbourhood are worth exploring and if you’re a true gentleman, then afternoon tea at the Royal Selangor Club will put you in the surroundings of a Home Counties Golf Club!
