espite the heat you will encounter, this city is most definitely one to explore on foot. You can completely immerse yourself in the action and will undoubtedly stumble across hidden gems, particularly those in the form of some of the city’s best dining spots.
Walking around the city full of skyscrapers you will find yourself caught by the enticing aroma of freshly cooked food in traditional stalls, providing the perfect juxtaposition against the city’s relentless march towards modernity.
It is a well known fact that the favourite pastime of the locals is shopping and eating, with Malaysian consumer culture reaching its peak in Kuala Lumpur. It provides you with the perfect way to relax and unwind on your travels, where you can spend an afternoon in a glamorous and perhaps more importantly air- conditioned shopping mall such as Pavilion Kuala Lumpur or Mid Valley Megamall.
Alternatively, if large-scale shopping malls are not your idea of relaxing, you can explore the Central Market. There you will find yourself amongst locally made souvenirs and perhaps some of the few remaining artisans and antique dealers in the area.
Considering the amount of people packed into this city and its often frantic atmosphere, Kuala Lumpur is always incredibly charming to its guests. It provides the perfect host to any business traveller's trip, having fully embraced technological connectivity. However, unlike some ultra-modern cities, you will still find a firm adherence to traditional customs that will provide you with a feel of the city.
