Kuala Lumpur, a city of contrasts

Travel Mauritius Kuala Lumpur
A major business hub and famous shopping place, stunning sites to visit, a population with welcoming blend… All this forms part of Kuala Lumpur, -making it a favourite travel destination.

When talking about the city- which the locals have nicknamed “KL”- one instantly thinks of its amazing skyscrapers: the famous KL Tower which offers panoramic views of the city, the steel and glass facade of Petronas Twin Towers - symbolic of an extremely bold business sector, the ultra-modern airport linked to the city by an express train service which is a true example of comfort.

For, this city of 1.6 million inhabitants, is essentially geared -towards the future, efficiency and progress while preserving its culture. Their respect for tradition shows in the museums and historical monuments such as the Merdeka Square, the National Palace and the National Museum as well as spiritual sites like the Jamek Mosque and the extraordinary Batu Caves.

Keeping the balance with nature, the city also hosts large green spaces, like the Lake Garden where the city people enjoy jogging on the esplanade and which includes a large aviary and a stunning orchid garden.

The area around Bukit Bintang, a popular meeting zone, is famous for its restaurants and shopping. The commercial centres, from Pavilion to Berjaya Times Square, including the trendy Suria KLCC, house international brands of cosmetics, fashion and accessories. KL is also a paradise for electronic and information technology, found in every single commercial centre. If you are looking out for picturesque set up and good bargains you will love taking a walk along “Petaling Street” in China Town or visiting the busy stands of Little India.
Entertainment is great in KL. You can visit the superb aquarium at KLCC Centre or take the kids to enjoy fun rides at Cosmo World in Berjaya Times Square. If you head out of town, they will love the attractions at Sunway Lagoon Waterpark or in Genting Highland while enjoying the fresh mountain air.

In the evenings, watch the magic of the musical fountains at KLCC. Enjoy the sumptuous culinary experience through the city restaurants, not to forget the Jalan Alor, which is a real must. Every night the entire road –transforms into a fast food centre. Tables are set on the pavement where the bustling crowd can sit and enjoy a variety of seafood, fish balls, “satay” skewers or the Hokkien Mee (popular local noodles). A true culinary feast in an extremely warm ambiance.

Last but not least, Air Mauritius is offering from the Kuala Lumpur hub, many connections to favourite destinations, with the collaboration of Malaysian Airline as well as the fastest connection with Africa via Johannesburg.
