Flights to Kuala Lumpur

Gazing out at Malaysia's cosmopolitan capital as your flight to Kuala Lumpur arrives, you'd never believe the city is only 150 years old. Kuala Lumpur means "muddy river confluence" in Malay, 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 as it is 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 more than 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 specializes 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 in 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

Breakfast at Imbi Market

Pasar Baru Bukit Bintang, better known as Imbi Market, is loud, bustling, and friendly. It can be enjoyed from the comfort of a stall and with the help of a conversation with the local traders. Or immerse yourself and eat some chee cheong fun (rice noodle roll) and sample Hainanese coffee from Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea as you wander around the market.

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 makes amazing noodle dishes and shows sports on its TVs.

Where to eat in Kuala Lumpur

Sek Yuen Restoran (Chinese)

You have to admire the confidence of a restaurant that has no menu. Sek Yuen has been cooking exceptional Cantonese fare for 60 years, so you know the veteran chefs in their wood-fired kitchen are masters of their craft. And the Art Deco building it stands in makes a beautiful setting.

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.

Wondermama Restaurant & Cafe (Malay)

The only thing better than Wondermama's decor—it feels like you're eating on a movie set—is its food. The restaurant excels at local and Asian fusion dishes, but offers equally tasty western plates, all created with a modern twist. Wash the food down with their classic beverages.

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.
