KUALA LUMPUR IS AN ULTRA-MODERN, GLOBAL DESTINATION THAT can be experienced through its luxury hotels, gastronomic delights, dramatic architecture, iconic landmarks and worldclass shopping. Remnants of British colonization to bustling Chinese and Indian communities, the city’s rich history dates back to the middle of the 19th century. Kuala Lumpur is a melting pot of cultural diversion that helps define this sophisticated global destination. ICONIC LANDMARKS & ILLUMINATING SKYSCRAPERS Head to the Golden Triangle, the city’s main shopping and entertainment district, for a perfect photo opportunity at the famous Petronas Twin Towers (the world’s tallest buildings from 1998–2004). From here, you’ll find exhilarating views of the Kuala Lumpur City Centre and beyond, while the nearby Menara KL Tower offers vistas of the Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve, the only tropical rain forest left in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Tour the Batu Caves, a 400-million-year old limestone hill where the Hindu festival of Thaipusam celebration (a day of thanksgiving and paying penance for Lord Murugan) occurs each year and visit the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, the earliest Moorish-style building and distinguished city landmark. CULINARY GETAWAYS Treat your palate to the ultimate fine dining experience at Troika Sky Dining located on the 24th floor of The Troika, a three-tower, luxury condominium development. Deemed the most striking of fine dining experiences in Kuala Lumpur, restaurant-goers can try one of the three dining rooms, including the Cantaloupe (fusion-focused), Strato (Italian cuisine) or delight in the wine bar, Claret. Each restaurant is in a different tower with sky bridges connecting them. Elegant and stylish décor fill each space with attention drawn to the doubleheight glass panels for striking views of the city. Dine surrounded by subtle water features at Cantaloupe and try the truffled poached egg and smoky duck cooked in shallot oil with tangy garlic crisps. From Strato, we recommend the Wagyu beef cheek and trotter ravioli with sage brown butter, lemon and fried onion. And don’t forget to try the tasty wines and cocktails at Claret, which boasts a beautiful outdoor terrace with comfy sofas, allowing you to take in the breathtaking skyline. Claret also hosts delightful monthly wine-tasting events. Each space is perfect for business meetings or a special meal experienced with family and friends. THRILL SEEKING ADVENTURES If you’re looking for a little adrenaline rush, Kuala Lumpur has you covered. Dive with sharks at the Aquaria Kuala Lumpur City Centre and swim with five different species of sharks and other deep sea creatures or perhaps a slightly milder adventure is more your taste. Let the Genting Skyway sweep you off your feet and ride in a gondola above the breathtaking tropical rainforest from Gohtong Jaya township to the resort city comprised of numerous hotels. In a city of over one million people, Kuala Lumpur is an exciting, pulsating center of activity which offers something for everyone from the nature-lover, to the thrill-seeker and beyond.
