Before you cozy up in the airport for a long layover in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, consider all the adventures you could have outside the terminal walls. Several hours is more than enough time to get a sense of the city, so instead of longingly looking out the airport windows, hail a cab and experience one day in Kuala Lumpur before your next flight.
The capital city is home to various things to do, from sightseeing to shopping. Begin your romp at the Petronas Twin Towers, where you can view the city from the observation deck and stroll across the Skybridge. If you’re ready for some retail therapy, head to the Central Market or the six-story Suria KLCC shopping mall. While exploring the town from top to bottom, climb the stairs to the temple in the Batu Caves, which is one of the most famous Hindu shrines outside of India, or picnic on the green lawns at Merdeka Square.
Whether you spend the day noshing on local cuisine or touring the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, 24 hours in Kuala Lumpur is sure to give you a sneak peek into “The Garden City of Lights.” Keep an eye on the time and soak up this destination before boarding your next flight.
