Book a flight to Kuala Lumpur with Qatar Airways

In Malay, Kuala Lumpur means “muddy confluence”, which speaks a lot about this city’s humble beginnings as a tin-mining settlement established by Chinese prospectors. Today, Malaysia’s capital is a bustling multicultural metropolis, where you’ll find one of Southeast Asia’s most vibrant culinary scenes.

Book a flight to Kuala Lumpur with Qatar Airways to discover an enigmatic city, from the sights and sounds of the Old Town, to the skyscrapers of the Golden Triangle.

  • Tourist attractions

    Your trip to Kuala Lumpur wouldn’t be complete without seeing the manmade spectacle of the Petronas Towers. These twin skyscrapers were the tallest buildings in the world at the turn of the 21st century, and although that lofty title is no longer valid, they remain a popular attraction with awe-inspiring views from the 86th floor and the sky bridge on the 41st floor. The nearby KL Tower is another skyscraper in the Golden Triangle that is popular with tourists who have a head for heights.

    Despite the abundance of concrete and glass that pervades the Malaysian capital, it is still possible to enjoy more natural attractions while you’re there. Aquaria KLCC features a large aquarium and underwater tunnel, while the KL Bird Park is home to more than 200 species of birds from around Asia. If you’re travelling with children, the Berjaya Times Square Theme Park is the place to go. This attraction is one of the largest indoor theme parks in Asia, featuring various rides for all ages.

  • Leisure activities

    In recent decades, Kuala Lumpur has developed an impressive range of activities to be enjoyed by both locals and tourists. You can hire paddling boats in picturesque natural surroundings at Lake Titiwangsa or go for an outdoor swim at the Chin Woo Stadium.

    Many people travel to Kuala Lumpur to relax in luxury, as the city is home to many spas and relatively affordable five-star hotels. You might also consider learning how to cook Malaysian cuisine, or rolling out your yoga mat for some meditation courses during your trip.

  • Food

    In Kuala Lumpur, you can explore the food of Malaysia without blowing your holiday budget, although there are also high-end restaurants available in the Golden Triangle, Heritage Row and elsewhere throughout the city.

    As with other locations in Southeast Asia, there’s plenty of street food to enjoy in Kuala Lumpur, and the standards of hygiene are generally quite good. Popular local delicacies include rendang curry, nasi lemak (fragrant rice dish cooked in coconut milk and pandan leaf), nasi goreng (stir-fried rice with chicken and prawns) and roti canai, a doughy breakfast dish.

  • Shopping

    For some, travelling to Kuala Lumpur is all about shopping, and with good reason. The city is Malaysia’s main centre of commerce and retail, and has more than 60 shopping centres covering a range of budgets. Suria KLCC is one of the most popular shopping centres, with more than 400 shops located at the Petronas Towers. Berjaya Times Square, one of the largest shopping malls in the world, offers 12 floors of retail experience.
