Home to a number of historic architectural sites, the Malaysian capital is one of the most fascinating tourist destinations in Asia that provides the traveller plenty of opportunities to marvel at its man-made wonders.

KL transformation

In recent times, Kuala Lumpur has added several modern structures to its skyline, which have in turn given the city a modern profile. Instead of shadowing that which is culturally valuable, it has accentuated the prominence of the relatively old structures in the city. While most cities in Malaysia have undergone similar transformation, Kuala Lumpur has garnered a considerable amount of global attention for its achievements in this regard. 

World famous as one of the tallest standing twin towers in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers is an 88-storey building, which was built at a total cost of approximately $1.6 billion. This magnificent addition to Kuala Lumpur's skyline was completed in 1998 under the watchful eye of masterful architect, Cesar Pelli.

Iconic KL landmark

First-time visitors planning on touring the city will find that the site is one of the most iconic landmarks that demands attention. Built for commercial use, the Petronas Twin Towers is officially owned by Petronas while selected sections and floors of the building are leased out for the use of other companies such as Accenture, Al Jazeera English, Microsoft, IBM and Huawei Technologies. Connecting the two structures quite elegantly, the Skybridge affords spectacular views of the city below. KLCC Park, located at the foot of the towers is an ideal place to relax and wind down after an absorbing sightseeing tour. 

Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur, located in the heart of the city also contributes to the aesthetic beauty of the futuristic city skyline. This KL five star hotel offers much more than just convenient accommodation for its guests, ensuring a pleasurable holiday.
