Global Street Food and High-End Shopping Await in Malaysia
Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital affectionately abbreviated “KL,” sits at a cultural and commercial intersection where East and West meet and intermingle. The city is often called a cultural melting pot because you will encounter people from around the world living, working, and playing side-by-side in this thriving metropolis.
Global Air Charters has a fleet of ultra-heavy jets that make flying to Malaysia a breeze. Visit Kuala Lumpur this winter to see why so many people flock to this extraordinary city.
Ancient Charm Meets Modern Wonders
Kuala Lumpur is a traveler’s dream, with easy-to-navigate public transportation systems and hotels that offer unparalleled luxury. Modernity and history intertwine in Kuala Lumpur, exemplified by the influence of classic Islamic architectural motifs woven into the concrete and steel of skyscrapers like the Petronas Twin Towers or the Kuala Lumpur Tower.
Malaysia is also home to a diverse array of wildlife, extraordinary white sand beaches, and breathtaking cliffside views of the Pacific Ocean. A trip to Malaysia this December, when the weather is warm, dry, and inviting, might just be the perfect antidote to the winter blues. Talk with our flight coordinators about Kuala Lumpur’s commercial and private airfields to determine which destination best suits your itinerary.
Savor the Flavor
Imagine a culinary tapestry woven with threads from Southeast Asian, Indian, Arabic, and Malay kitchens, and that comes close to approximating the food scene in KL. From sizzling street food stalls serving nasi lemak to upscale restaurants offering an international array of dishes, KL promises something for every taste.
For those who lean towards Modern European cuisine, Skillet devises seasonal, refined tasting menus that far surpass its homespun moniker. Sabayon at EQ reinvents the steakhouse experience with a Malaysian touch.
For an entirely different dining experience, Dharma Realm Guan Yin Sagely Monastery Canteen opens its doors to the public, offering food and a few moments of serenity. After savoring their delicacies, take advantage of one of the temple’s guided tours and marvel at the extraordinary artwork and craftsmanship on display.
A Shopper’s Paradise
Kuala Lumpur isn’t just Malaysia’s capital; it’s a financial and economic epicenter for the entire Asian continent and beyond. Malaysia’s economic powerhouse is on full display in Bukit Bintang, the city’s world-famous shopping and entertainment district. You’ll find everything from high-end designer brands to the work of local artisans in the many stores and stalls within. While brand-conscious shoppers flock to high-end shopping malls like The Starhill or Pavilion KL, don’t forget to explore Sungei Wang Plaza, where you’ll find unusual products from around the world.
