Literally meaning “muddy river confluence” in Malay because if it’s location on the intersection of two rivers, Kuala Lumpur is a fast growing city with population of about 6.5 mil. With its looming skyscrapers, stellar cuisine and thumping night life, the Malaysian capital is one of Southeast Asia’s most alluring metropolises. Many would be pleasantly surprised with the affordability of 5 star hotels and great food.
Popular Kuala Lumpur landmarks include the Petronas Twin Towers, Kuala Lumpur Tower, Bukit Bintang (shopping and entertainment district), Dataran Merdeka (Independence Square), Tugu Negara (National Monument), Sultan Abdul Samad Building, Istana Negara, Jalan Duta (New National Palace), and The Kuala Lumpur Bird Park. The Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is home to more than 3000 birds representing more than 200 species in an enclosed aviary.
April is considered one of the best months to be in Malaysia as both coastlines of the peninsula are expecting good weather. April falls onto the transitional period between monsoons – the winds are lighter, showers are local and infrequent. Through the centre and up in the highlands, the rains are heavier but normally short lived bringing a welcome relief to the humidity.
