Malaysia’s capital is like the gateway to Southeast Asia and boasts the badged of that region: towering skyscrapers, lush greenery, sticky nights, shopping oases and delectable street food.
Kuala Lumpur is the melting pot of melting pots: Malays, Chinese and Indians are the three main ethnic groups, and one of the best way to do the city is eat your through its diverse food. Get used to eating outside, because that’s where the best grub is in Kuala Lumpur. Jalan Alor is a favourite strip of hawker food stalls, best visited in the evening when the atmosphere, hustle and bustle and flavours are palpable.
Need a break from eating? Catch the train to Batu Caves, a limestone hill dotted with caves, temples and shrines – just beware of the monkeys!
