Discover Kuala Lumpur with Checkin Accommodation

Imagine a city, with a skyline punctuated by minarets, Mogul-style domes and skyscrapers; imagine colourful, food-stall-lined streets shaded by a leafy canopy of banyan trees.

This is Kuala Lumpur (KL), Malaysia’s sultry capital packed with historic monuments, steel-clad skyscrapers, lush parks, megasized shopping malls, bustling street markets and lively nightspots.

Today's Kuala Lumpur-ites are separated by barely a handful of generations from the tenacious Chinese and Malay tin prospectors who founded the city, carving it out of virgin jungle. By the time the British made it the capital of Peninsular Malaysia in the late 19th century, erecting grand colonial buildings, Kuala Lumpur had only been in existence for a couple of decades.

For such a frenetic city, KL has an uncanny way of charming its visitors. Of course, the food helps: the sheer variety of delicious dining options that reflect the very best of Malaysian cuisine. It's the way the city has embraced modernity with its towering skyscrapers and technological connectivity, all while retaining a deeply entrenched adherence to the traditional customs and religions of its residents. Beyond the traffic and malls there is a complex cultural patchwork formed of distinct, coexisting communities, united by the warm welcome extended to guests.

Petronas Towers - Resembling twin silver rockets plucked from an episode of Flash Gordon, the Petronas Towers are the perfect allegory for the meteoric rise of the city from tin-miners' hovel to 21st-century metropolis. Half of the 1500 tickets for 45-minute tours – which take in the Skybridge connection on the 41st floor and the observation deck on the 86th floor at 370m – are sold in advance online. Otherwise turn up early to be sure of scoring a ticket to go up.

  1. KampungBaru - The charm of this Malay area, gazetted by the British in the 1890s, lies in just wandering the streets, which you can also do with a guide on the city's free KampungBaru walking tour. Traditional Malay wooden houses stand amid leafy gardens and people go quietly about their daily lives as they have done for decades. Along the way enjoy tasty home-cooked Malay food at unpretentious roadside cafes and stalls.
  2. Sin Sze Si Ya Temple - Kuala Lumpur's oldest Chinese temple was built on the instructions of Kapitan Yap Ah Loy and is dedicated to Sin SzeYa and Si SzeYa, two Chinese immigrants instrumental in Yap's ascension to Kapitan status. Several beautiful objects decorate the temple, including two hanging carved panels, but the best feature is the almost frontier-like atmosphere. This is still an important temple for the community, much as it was in 1883 when 10,000 people turned out for opening day.
  3. Tun Abdul Razak Heritage Park - This 173-hectare lush, landscaped park is also known, and more aptly described, by its colonial-era moniker: the Lake Gardens. This is KL's largest green space, and you can spend hours exploring the rolling terrain. The top sight is the sprawling Bird Park, but there are others worth checking out nearby, including two of KL's best museums – the National Museum and the Islamic Arts Museum – connected by a stroll through flower gardens and alongside the lake. There's also an excellent children's adventure playground.
  4. Islamic Arts Museum - This outstanding museum is home to one of the best collections of Islamic decorative arts in the world. Aside from the quality of the exhibits, which include fabulous textiles, carpets, jewellery and calligraphy-inscribed pottery, the building itself is a stunner, with beautifully decorated domes and glazed tile work. There's a good Middle Eastern restaurant and one of KL's best museum gift shops, stocking beautiful products from around the Islamic world.
  5. Titiwangsa Lake Gardens- For a postcard-perfect view of the city skyline, head to Lake Titiwangsa and the relaxing tree-filled park that surrounds it. If you’re feeling energetic, hire a motor boat, go for a jog, hire a bike, play some tennis or even go for a spin in a helicopter. The park is a favourite spot for courting Malaysian couples. It's a 10-minute walk east of the monorail station.TOP CHOICE MUSEUM IN LAKE GARDENS, BRICKFIELDS &
  6. National Museum - This museum offers a rich look at Malaysian history, with four galleries covering everything from the formation of the rainforest through to Malaysia today. The best exhibits are Early History, with artefacts from Neolithic and Bronze Age cultures; and the Malay Kingdoms, which highlights the rise of Islamic kingdoms in the Malay Archipelago. Recommended free museum tours are offered at 10am Monday to Saturday and again at 2pm on Thursday. Note that the museum may close for renovations in 2017.
  7. Menara Kuala Lumpur - Although the Petronas Towers are taller, the 421m Menara KL, rising from the crest of Bukit Nanas, offers the best city views. The bulb at the top contains a revolving restaurant, an interior observation deck at 276m and, most thrilling of all, and an open deck at 300m, access to which is weather dependent. Here (if you dare) you can take your photo in the new sky box, which puts nothing but glass between you and the ground below.
  8. TheanHou Temple -Sitting atop leafy Robson Heights, this imposing multistorey Chinese temple, dedicated to TheanHou, the heavenly queen, affords wonderful views over Kuala Lumpur. Opened in 1989 by the Selangor and Federal Territory Hainan Association, it serves as both a house of worship and a functional space for events such as weddings. In recent years it's also become a tourist attraction in its own right, especially during Chinese festival times and the birthdays of the various temple gods.
  9. National Visual Arts Gallery -Occupying a pyramid-shaped block, the NVAG showcases modern and contemporary Malaysian art. It's always worth turning up to see a variety of interesting temporary shows of local and regional artists, as well as pieces from the gallery's permanent collection of 4000 pieces, including paintings by ZulkifliMoh'dDahalan, Wong Hoy Cheong, Ahmad Fuad Osman and the renowned batik artist ChuahTheanTeng. On the ground floor, the National Portrait Gallery hosts regularly changing exhibitions.
  10. ILHAM - KL's latest public art gallery provides an excellent reason to admire close-up the slick 60-storey ILHAM Tower designed by Foster + Partners. With a mission to showcase modern and contemporary Malaysian art, ILHAM kicked off with a blockbuster show of works by HoesseinEnas (1924–95). There's no permanent collection, with exhibitions changing every three to four months.
  11. Masjid Jamek - Gracefully designed in Mogul style by British architect AB Hubback, this onion-domed mosque is situated at the confluence of the Gombak and Klang rivers. At the time of research the surroundings were being landscaped as part of the River of Life project and the original steps down to the river reinstated, but by the time you read this, the renovations should be complete. You can visit the inside of the mosque, outside of prayer times; robes are available to borrow.

13           KL Forest Eco Park - Don't miss traversing the lofty canopy walkway set in this thick lowland dipterocarp forest covering 9.37 hectares in the heart of the city. The oldest protected jungle in Malaysia (gazetted in 1906), the park is commonly known as Bukit Nanas (Pineapple Hill), and is threaded through with short trails up from either JlnAmpang or Jln Raja Chulan. Pick up a basic map to the trails from the Forest Information Centre on Jln Raja Chulan.

Rebung- 5th fl, 1 JlnTanglin, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Tel. 03-2276 3535

Occupying the top level of a multistorey car park overlooking the Botanical Garden, flamboyant celebrity chef Ismail's restaurant Rebung is one of KL's best. The seemingly endless buffet spread is splendid, with all kinds of dishes that you'd typically only be served in a Malay home. Herbs grown on the terrace are used in the recipes. Book ahead at weekends.

  1. Bangsar Sunday Market - car park east of JlnTelawi 2, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

This weekly market, though mostly for fresh produce, is also a fine hawker food-grazing zone. Stalls sell satay and a variety of noodles including asamlaksa (laksa with a prawn paste and tamarind-flavoured gravy), cheecheong fun (rice noodles) and fried kwayteow.

You'll also find popiah and dim sum stalls as well as traditionally prepared putubambu – rice flour with pandan and gulamelaka (palm sugar) steamed inside hollow bamboo and covered with desiccated coconut.TOP CHOICE SEAFOOD IN LAKE GARDENS, BRICKFIELDS & BANGSAR

  1. Southern Rock Seafood - 34 JlnKemuja, Kuala Lumpur. Tel: 03-2856 2016

The fishmonger to some of KL's top restaurants has opened its own operation and it's a corker. The fish and seafood – in particular the wide range of oysters – is top quality, simply prepared to allow the flavours to sing. The blue-and-white decor suggests nights spent on the sparkling Med rather than the muddy Sungai Klang.

  1. Kin Kin - 40 JlnDewan Sultan Sulaiman, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

This bare-bones shop is famous throughout the city for its chilli pan mee (board noodles). These 'dry' noodles, topped with a soft-boiled egg, minced pork, ikanbilis (small, deep-fried anchovies), fried onion and a special spicy chilli sauce, are a taste sensation. If you don't eat pork, staff do a version topped with mushrooms.

  1. Heli Lounge Bar - level 34, Menara KH, Jln Sultan Ishmail. Tel: 03-2110 5034

If the weather's behaving, this is easily the best place for sundowners in KL. Nothing besides your lychee martini and the cocktail waiter stands between you, the edge of the helipad and amazing 360-degree views. Steady your hands as you have to buy your first drink at the somewhat cheesy bar below and carry it up yourself.

  1. Zouk - TREC, 436 JlnTunRazak.

If you're going to visit one club in KL, make it Zouk at TREC. The seven interlinked DJ spaces include the Main Room, which reverberates to trance, electro, techno and trance, Velvet Underground for commercial house music and Ace, a hip-hop and R & B club.

  1. Coley - 8 JlnKemuja, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Named after Ada Coleman, a female bartender in 1920s London and creator of the Hanky Panky cocktail, this tiny bar at the back of DR.Inc is the place to come for a seriously well-mixed drink. Legendary local mixologist CK Kho works the bar, serving a selection of classic cocktails with a contemporary twist.
