Near by Attraction
KL began as a few square miles of unspectacular landscape that now hosts many of the most important buildings in KL. Align yourself with a heavyweight landmark of modern history and you'll never get lost. Look for the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, a Moorish-style, elongated building dressed in salmon colors and perhaps the most photographed site in KL. Its functioning clock tower has witnessed many historical milestones and faithfully provides a backdrop to important national events such as the annual National Day Parade.
Across the street lies the Dataran Merdeka, or Independence Square, which evolved from a British colonial cricket green and is now complemented by a lovely water fountain, colonnades, flower beds and an underground food and entertainment center. You cannot miss the Selangor Club and the Cathedral of Virgin St Mary, both unmistakable ornaments of the once exclusive lifestyles of colonialists.
The progressive spread of Islam since the 15th century has bequeathed KL some of the greatest mosques this side of Istanbul. Jamek Mosque, the oldest in the country and located just behind the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, offers a fine start for a day exploring mosques.
The Central Market, traditionally a fresh market, now hosts painters, sculptors, fortune-tellers and traders hawking a wide range of curios, collectibles and art. For connoisseurs of kitsch, paradise lies at Petaling Street. This 500-meter tarmac of century-old shophouses and neighboring blocks of similar offerings are collectively known as Chinatown. Lake Gardens Area
The greener side of KL began as a vegetable and tapioca field. Today Lake Gardens and its vicinity still feature numerous parks - such as Orchid Garden, Kuala Lumpur Bird Park, Hibiscus Garden,Butterfly Parkand Deer Park - but is also marked by theParliament House, the commemorative National Monument, and the Tun Abdul Razak Memorial. Explore further and you discover the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia/a>, the National Mosque (Masjid Negara) and at the end of the line, the KL Railway Station.
Golden Triangle and KLCC
For the city's newest gadgets and gizmos, tell the cabbie to head for one of the many shopping establishments. Which one? To err on the side of caution, choose the tallest among them: the Petronas Twin Towers. These towers are among the tallest in the world. Or, take a stroll in the Suria KLCC at the base of the towers to find a wealth of luxury items.
Certainly shopkeepers and department stores abounded before Suria KLCC, and the most expensive and well-stocked of these lie scattered around the intersection of Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Bukit Bintang on which is one of the most happening party strips - the Bintang Walk.
What happened to the tin barons who got rich from the mineral that made KL? The Ampang enclave hides a precious cache of private residences where the affluent still live. Some of these architectural marvels serve as glimmering veneers of cool and clever enterprises, and conceal several of the city's best-kept secrets.
As for the old footpath to the Ampang tin mines, the evolved Jalan Ampang is now lavishly adorned with eateries and merry-making joints of tantalizing varieties, seamlessly blending with the adjacent necessary instruments of commerce: high-rise office blocks, hotels, foreign embassies and political offices. For an unbeatable view of all these and more, head to one of the world's tallest telecommunications towers, the KL Tower, on Jalan Punchak.
