After pickup from your hotel, head to the KL Tower (Menara Kuala Lumpur) for a bird’s-eye view of the city from its observation deck. Next, enjoy a photo stop at the Petronas Twin Towers and visit two souvenir factories: one pewter, and one batik.
Your next destination is the Batu Caves, outside the city proper, a series of limestone caves that have been transformed into temples for Hindu deities. The statue of Lord Murugan stands an impressive 140 feet (42.7 meters) tall.
After a banana leaf curry lunch—eat with your fingers, local style—continue to the King’s Palace (Istana Negara), National Monument, Merdeka Square, and St. Mary’s Cathedral. Stop for a photo at the meeting point of two rivers that gave Kuala Lumpur her name. After a drive past Little India, your chauffeur-guide will drop you back at your hotel.
