13 KUALA LUMPUR

January 22, 2024

Exploring Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, has been a fantastic experience. Discovering its flavours, scents, and quirky weather has truly enchanted us. Here are some interesting facts about KL:

  • The Petronas Towers are one of Kuala Lumpur’s most recognised icons and were, at one point, the tallest buildings in the world. Connected by a bridge on the 41st floor, they offer spectacular city views.
  • Kuala Lumpur is an incredibly diverse city with a mix of cultures and ethnicities, including Malays, Chinese, Indians, and other communities. This diversity is reflected in its food, architecture, and festivities.
  • We were in KL during Ramadan, the ninth month of the lunar Islamic calendar, considered one of the holiest months for Muslims worldwide. During Ramadan, Muslims observe a period of fasting and spiritual reflection lasting approximately 29 or 30 days, depending on the sighting of the crescent moon that marks the beginning and end of the month. It was fascinating to hear prayers at certain times of the day.
  • KL is famous for its street markets, such as Central Market and Chow Kit Market, where you can find a wide variety of local products, crafts, and delicious food.
  • Batu Caves: These impressive caves are a significant Hindu pilgrimage site, housing stunning temples and statues. The staircase leading to the caves is adorned with colourful statues and is a popular tourist attraction.
  • The gardens around the Petronas Towers make up KLCC Park, a pleasant place for a stroll—I even encountered some monks.

What we liked the most:

• The food – everything was delicious!

• The kindness of the people.

• Experiencing its quirky weather.

• Listening to the prayers during Ramadan.
