KUALA LUMPUR is one of the most unique cities in Asia and people travel from far and wide to discover it.
The soaring tops of the city’s skyscrapers offer outstanding views of the glistening skyline and the lush forest-covered mountains which encase the capital provide endless adventures.
Kuala Lumpur is also known for being a diverse melting pot of cultures that gives visitors a chance to experience incredible fusion cuisines.
Whether its banana leaf-wrapped nasi lemak or divine dumplings freshly prepared in front of you, eaten during a picnic surrounded by nature or enjoyed in a rooftop bar, Kuala Lumpur will not disappoint.
Unlike other major cities where entertainment and activities are contained to one area, never really allowing visitors to see the true culture, Kuala Lumpur sprawls into every corner.
Which is why the location of a hotel is crucial to affording visitors the best possible trip.

What to do in Kuala Lumpur
Just moments outside of PARKROYAL Serviced Suites is one of the city’s most popular and vibrant entertainment areas – Changkat Bukit Bintang.

Visitors can experience a captivating variety of bars teeming with fun-loving night owls moving and grooving to the music.
From here, stroll around the corner to Jalan Alor to sample a melting pot of cuisines.
Do it like the locals do and makan (eat) your way along the street, nibbling on fresh satay and slurping up thick noodles from the many peddlers.
Looking for something a little more upmarket? Head to the luxury shopping mall, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, just a short journey from PARKROYAL Serviced Suites on the GoKL city bus. Try the fluffy, gooey and crispy dumplings from Din Tai Fung, one of the best Chinese restaurants in Kuala Lumpur.
Eating aside, a difficult task in culture founded on food, Kuala Lumpur boast an awesome variety of entertainment, arts, nature and heritage sites.
If you’re in town for a while, then the Batu Caves is a must-see. Home to traditional Hindu caves and thousands of cute bats, the 272 steps to the top reveal shimmering views of the KL skyline in the distance.
Back in the city, head towards the infamous Petronas Twin Towers. You can head up to the viewing platform and pace along the skywalk.
