Add a Point to the Map

Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) is one of the most popular destinations within Kuala Lumpur. Packed into KLCC are some of the most iconic tourist attractions that you simply cannot miss. Here we've listed them down for you.

KLCC Park

A concentration of activities in itself, KLCC Park is an urban landscape park that spreads over 50 acres, and great fun for the whole family. The kids can enjoy themselves at the playground and wading pool while you can grab a seat at one of the many pagoda-come-shelter-spots and gaze upon the stunning Petronas Twin Towers.

The Symphony Lake

The Symphony Lake, behind which is the KLCC Park, is syncronised in a pretty water ballet at noon and in the early evening. Lasting about twenty minutes, this wonder of technology and nature is a real crowd pleaser.

Masjid As Syakirin

Check out Masjid As Syakirin, located in the north-east corner of KLCC Park, an East Asian-styled mosque with intricate carvings adorning the interior. Built by Uzbekistan craftsmen flown down especially for the designing and building of this mosque, the Masjid As Syakirin is definitely worth a visit.

The Petronas Towers

Malaysia's iconic landmark, the Petronas Twin Towers, are best admired from the gardened portico at the entrance to the Dewan Filharmonik Petronas. This is one of the more popular locations to snap that 'I've been here!' photograph.

Skybridge

Get onto the Skybridge, which joins the two towers of the Petronas at the 41st and 42nd floors. Tickets are free, and at least 1,000 are given out daily from the Skybridge Ticket Counter. Even though you only get to stay up there for ten minutes, the view is really something else altogether.

Petrosains

An interactive science discovery centre, Petrosains is an incredible amount of fun for kids, who get to learn about light painting and nanotechnology, amongst other things. Adults welcomed too!

Petronas Art Gallery

Head down to Petronas Art Gallery for free (!) admission into one of the most prestigious art galleries in Kuala Lumpur, where exhibitions rarely, if ever, disappoint the discerning art aficionado.

Suria KLCC

Take a walk around Suria KLCC, possibly the most highly frequented top end shopping destination in Kuala Lumpur. Suria KLCC occupies more than 1.5 million square feet, and houses many high-end fashion labels. This mall alone is enough to keep you occupied for an entire day.

Books Kinokuniya

Satisfy your booklust at Kinokuniya, a huge bookstore with many English-language titles. If you're interested in reading Malaysian literature, they have a section dedicated especially to that. Otherwise, there are thousands of titles to choose from at Kinokuniya.

Relax

When all of the above are completed and your tired feet are begging for relief, the last thing left to do is grab a cup of coffee or have a meal at one of the open-air cafes by the KLCC Park lakeside. Dome, Starbucks, San Francisco Coffee, Malones are just a few of the establishments that have set up alfresco dining and drinking at KLCC Park. Sit back, relax and watch the world unfold.
