Kuala Lumpur Science & Nature

Kuala Lumpur Attractions

Kuala Lumpur’s architectural landscape is a mixture of Arabian, Moorish, Moghul, Malay and Victorian colonial architecture, futuristic mega-buck high rises and flourishing street markets with friendly and eager-to-please merchants. The city centre is a compact grid of streets with the colonial district centred on the green Merdeka Square and the Lake Gardens – southwest of Chinatown – which houses the world’s largest walk-in aviary, the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park.

Meanwhile the Golden Triangle zone encompasses an area that stretches north to the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) development. Anchored by the Petronas Twin Towers, KLCC is an urban expanse with a park, convention and shopping centre. The compound plays host to Petrosains, an interactive science discovery centre, as well as Aquaria KLCC.
