WINGED BOOTS WISDOM
 
Traffic in Kuala Lumpur tends to be grid locked during rush hour so don’t be afraid to venture onto the trains and monorail that connect each district of the city to each other. Alternatively, you could choose to walk and soak up even more of the urban atmosphere.

Kuala Lumpur in a Nutshell

Soak Up The Culture 
 
  • Like Big Ben is to London, the Petronas Twin Towers are to Kuala Lumpur. A landmark of design and architecture, the skyscrapers are a beautiful sight to behold especially when illuminated at night.
     
  • Immerse yourself in history at the Batu Caves, just a 20-minute drive from the Petronas Twin Towers. Home to beautiful statues, gorgeous temples and limestone caves, this choice is ideal for those wanting to explore and find out more about the culture. Alternatively, head to the Sin Sze Si Ya Temple, the oldest Chinese temple in Kuala Lumpur.
     
  • For times when you want to escape the hustle and bustle, the Titiwangsa Lake Gardens are brilliant. With tranquil lakes and a tree-filled park to venture though, those with an appreciation for nature will be in their element. 

     
Tastes To Try 
 
  • Contemporary Italian cuisine is top of the menu at Marini’s on 57, a wonderful rooftop restaurant complete with bar and whisky lounge to indulge in. Fantastic for a date night or special occasion, the views are as gorgeous as the food. 
     
  • Unofficially known as the best Indian restaurant in Kuala Lumpur, Qureshi Malaysia serves exquisite fare with every mouthful as flavoursome as the last. Butter chicken, lamb biryani and kulfi are top choices which we’re sure will be a hit with all the family.

Fusing Western, Chinese and Japanese flavours, the heat is well and truly turned up thanks to the show kitchens.

  • For an eclectic bar that doesn’t take itself too seriously, Skullduggery is a top choice. Art deco in design and stature, the décor is distinctly colonial accompanied by a similar drinks list, perfect to socialise with loved ones. Make sure to grab a shot from the toy train chugging around, too. 
     
  • To accompany the 1930s architecture found throughout the city, No Black Tie is a club which boasts top jazz performers on its books. Japanese-influenced dishes accompanied by wine, cigars and cocktails is truly unique thanks to its wood-panelled walls adorned with black and white photos of jazz legends.
