The most popular and iconic attractions in Kuala Lumpur have come to define the city as a tourist destination - from the unmistakable outline of the Petronas Twin Towers to the colossal standing Buddha image found outside Batu Caves.
However, Kuala Lumpur's attractions comprise so much more for those who want to look deeper into this fascinating city, from the colourful Petaling Street market in Chinatown, the famous Sultan Abdul Samad Building in the city's colonial quarter, to the indoor Aquaria KLCC oceanarium and Petrosains Art Gallery in Suria KLCC.
