Flights to Kuala Lumpur

Gazing out at Malaysia's cosmopolitan capital as your flight to Kuala Lumpur arrives, you'd never believe it was only 150 years old. Kuala Lumpur in Malay means ‘muddy river confluence’, and it was along the banks of the Klang River that this Chinese tin mining village grew into not just the largest city in the country, but one of the most exciting in the world.

Kuala Lumpur, like all the best capital cities in Asia, is a mishmash of old and new. Merdeka Square's beautiful 19th century colonial buildings stand in the shadows of some of the biggest and boldest architecture in the world – none bigger or bolder than the iconic Petronas Twin Towers, once the world's tallest building.

In contrast, the Batu Caves in the northern suburbs are home to the country's most sacred Hindu shrine, and the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia boasts a breathtaking treetop canopy walkway, right over the rainforest. The only sight that can compare is the dazzling light show performed each night by Kuala Selangor's fireflies.

While Malaysia's largest city isn't short on sights it's also a great place for a wander. A cross-section of cultures such as Malay, Chinese and Indian means the cuisine, like the conversations heard on the street, is deeply diverse. Locals are known for their friendliness toward tourists, and being such a cosmopolitan city, many locals speak English and are quick with a smile and happy to help with directions.

Make your way downtown to the Golden Triangle, and you'll find all the best restaurants, nightlife venues and shopping malls – lots and lots of malls. KL (as the locals and those in the know call it) has over 50 big shopping malls – including two of the world's biggest, Berjaya Times Square and Mid Valley Megamall.

The best restaurants in KL include everything from street food to fine dining, and there's something to suit every budget in between. The city specialises in Asian fare – not just Malay, but Chinese and Indian – though it also offers good food from pretty much every major cuisine around the world.

But where Kuala Lumpur really comes into its own is with its markets. For the true KL experience, head to a night market and sample all of the sights, sounds and smells of the city. Hunt for bargains in Chinatown or stop by Brickfields, home to Little India, to try out the banana leaf rice restaurants. And if you're still not ready for bed after all that, hit the Mamak stalls. A visit to these lively 24-hour curry houses loved by Malaysians of every background is like a little night out in itself.

What to do in Kuala Lumpur

Support KL's artists

Kuala Lumpur's Central Market once sold only simple produce, but the focus has slowly shifted towards the city's artistic community and their wares. Sample the street food, admire the market's Art Deco building and try to barter a good deal on an authentic Malaysian batik print.

Eat at a 24-hour Mamak stall

Malaysian Mamak – whose ancestors migrated from south India – founded these lively, unpretentious curry shops, many of which now run 24 hours a day. One of the best is the Banana Leaf Restaurant, which does amazing noodle dishes and screens sports on its TVs.

Visit KL Bird Park

The north of the city is home to impressive natural wonders, such as the Batu Caves, the National Zoo and the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia. However, one of the city's best nature spots is the KL Bird Park. It's the world's largest free-flight walk-in aviary.

Where to eat in Kuala Lumpur

Village Park (Malay)

Village Park's specialty is Ayam Goreng – chicken with golden spiced skin, diced into chunks, and as juicy on the inside as it is crispy on the outside. It has to be tasted to be believed. But this place is no one-trick pony – the rest of the menu is just as good.

Nobu KL (Japanese)

Nobu transports the famous Michelin-starred Japanese brand to KL, bringing with it some of the world's very best sushi, sashimi and tempura. The view of the city's skyline from the iconic Petronas Twin Towers complements the food and ensures an unforgettable dining experience.

Fierce Curry House (Indian)

Despite its fierce name, this is a very chilled out Indian restaurant. It specialises in dum biryanis direct from Hyderabad, a recipe where dough is wrapped around the rim of the pot to retain moisture during the steaming process. If you consider yourself a bit of a foodie, it's a must-try.

Irshad Mobarak, Our man in Langkawi

Known affectionately as the ‘Junglewalla’, the founder of Natural History Tours, TV personality and Malaysia’s best-known naturalist and conservationist believes that only nature can show us the way. Mobarak has been “thrilled” by Malaysia’s wildlife, including the orangutans of Malaysian Borneo since childhood. He agrees with Charles Darwin (middle) that the most successful species are those that adapt best to change.
