Things to do in Kuala Lumpur

Stroll around the bloom-filled leafy grounds of Lake Gardens, home to the National Museum, before marvelling at the historic artefacts and ceramics at the neighbouring Islamic Art Museum. Kids of all ages delight in the city centre's underwater world, Aquaria, where a 90-metre long marine tunnel journeys into a magical aquatic spectacular. Head to the Skybridge at the 88-storey Petronas Twin Towers for eye-popping city views.
