Kuala Lumpur's classic internet-famous check-in location

Kuala Lumpur, as a transit hub for many routes, sometimes loses some of its personality, but if you want a unique journey in Malaysia, this is the best starting point: from towering skyscrapers, you can see the light rail passing by; ancient buildings preserve the traces of history; people from various ethnicities come together, giving this city a diverse vitality.

Twin Towers

Since its completion in 1998, the Twin Towers have been one of the most famous buildings in Malaysia, standing at a height of 452 meters and consisting of 88 floors. It was once the tallest building in the world, although it has since been surpassed by others. It is still ranked as the 19th tallest skyscraper in the world and is a classic landmark in Malaysia, known for its unique design of two towering glass buildings connected by a "sky bridge" 170 meters above ground.

Petronas Twin Towers

When you climb up the Twin Towers and gaze into the distance, you can see the nearby Kuala Lumpur Tower towering over the surrounding area. It shares the same name as the Twin Towers and is primarily used for signal communication, but it is also open for tourists to visit. Its height is only 31 meters lower than that of the Twin Towers.

Independence Square

On the midnight of August 30th, 1957, the British flag, which had ruled Malaysia for 171 years, was lowered here, and the Malaysian flag was hoisted for the first time. The cricket field, originally established by the British, was renamed "Independence Square" and became the venue for the annual celebration of Malaysia's Independence Day on August 31st. The Kuala Lumpur City Gallery on the south side of Independence Square has many exhibitions about the history of Kuala Lumpur, and the "I ♥ KL" sculpture at the entrance is also a popular photo spot for tourists.

Cizhuan Street

Strictly speaking, the "Chinatowns" in various countries are all "streets formed after the country was established", but Petaling Street in Kuala Lumpur is exactly the opposite. Before Malaysia became independent, the Chinese community in Kuala Lumpur had already settled here. After going through the inevitable stages of factionalism and internal struggles, it eventually became the commercial district we see today, spread with Chinese vendors selling clothing, jewelry and various snacks.

National Mosque of Malaysia

No one knows how many mosques there are in Malaysia, where Islam is the state religion, but the Malaysia National Mosque located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur is widely recognized as a symbol of Islam in Malaysia.

Little India

As the name suggests, like Petaling Street to the Chinese, Little India is the most famous gathering place of Indian residents in Kuala Lumpur. The buildings here are brightly colored, with arches adorned with Hindu patterns arranged in a scattered manner. The shops along the street are filled with bags of red and yellow curry powder and other spices, and most of the men who come and go are wrapped in thick turbans with thick beards, while the women wear colorful saris, every corner giving you the feeling that you have truly arrived in India.

Alor Street

Food is always a highlight of traveling in Malaysia, and if you're looking to satisfy your Chinese taste buds after eating your way through the city, you can't miss Alor Street. This is Kuala Lumpur's most famous Chinese food street, with restaurants and stalls serving up authentic Malaysian-Chinese and Chinese cuisine year-round. It's not only a daily eatery for locals, but also a must-visit spot for foodies traveling in the area.

The National Museum of Malaysia

To fully understand the past and present of Malaysia, why not start with the country's most famous museum, formerly known as the Selangor State Museum? The museum has four exhibition areas featuring Malaysia's historical economy, the customs and culture of local ethnic groups, and unique tropical flora and fauna. You can see ancient fossilized remains and relics from Malay weddings, funerals, and other ceremonies from the 16th and 17th centuries, as well as treasures such as porcelain and tortoiseshell furniture left behind by explorer Zheng He during his voyage to the West.

Kuala Lumpur Central Market

Want to buy travel souvenirs but find the products at Central Market more refined than the ones at Petaling Street and Little India. This building, which was established in 1888 and was once a vegetable market, has now become a large market for a wide range of traditional Malaysian handicrafts, including tinware, batik, wood carvings, Malay swords, and other local ethnic art products. You can also find Kuala Lumpur-related refrigerator magnets, postcards, mugs, and more with various graphics and photos.
