When you plan a trip to Malaysia’s capital make sure to also consider our Kuala Lumpur car hire services. The city’s name literally means “muddy estuary” and it used to be a simple and small Chinese tin-mining village but nowadays it’s a bustling modern metropolis.
Getting into the city via airplane will have you landing at Kuala Lumpur Airport which is situated at about fifty kilometers from the city in the Sepang district. Considering the very big distance that you have to cross in order to get to the city the airport is connected to the capital via several train lines, bus routes and of course taxi services but your best choice by far would be to employ our Kuala Lumpur car rental services and have a car ready for you at the airport as soon as you land.
Once you find yourself in the city you may notice that Kuala Lumpur is in fact one of those cities which despite having many attractions it doesn’t have a lot of must-see attractions so once you’ve seen the more important things it’s all a matter of just wandering around and experiencing the city on a personal level.
Those few attractions that you can go straight for are mostly found in the City Center with Dataran Merdeka or Independence Square at its middle the place where the country declared its independence more than fifty years ago and where they still celebrate their Independence Day.
Then there’s the Sultan Abdul Samad Building as well as other Colonial-style buildings which are built around the square.
There is an unadorned modern National Mosque that you may want to see as well as the Kuala Lumpur Railway Station which is built in a Moorish-style and it houses a mini-museum related to the country’s railway history.
One other area that you may want to consider for your trip is called the Golden Triangle. This is mostly a shopping and night-life district but it is also where the Petronas Twin Towers can be found and in the nearby KL Convention Center you can visit the Aquaria KLCC which contains around five thousand varieties of tropical fish.
These of course, have been only a couple of the things that you can see on your trip to Malaysia’s capital and you can see more of them if you choose to employ our Kuala Lumpur car hire services.
