Deciding where to stay in Kuala Lumpur can be tricky! While the city’s humble beginnings is rooted in a name that means “muddy confluence,” KL has been proving to the world since the 19th century that it is far more than just a spot where two rivers meet. KL is the sole city in Malaysia that directly influences the global economy, and it also is home to the tallest twin towers on the planet. It was named in 2014 as one of the New7Wonders Cities, and it claims the highest safety ranking of any developing country. Need more reasons to visit? The city’s impressively modern transportation system allows easy access to all of these popular districts in town!
AGODA EXTRA: Pineapple Hill, or Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve, is one of Malaysia’s oldest and smallest nature reserves, and it lives right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur! Visitors are welcome to explore the rainforest, now known as KL Forest Eco Park, which features a canopy walk, an herbal garden and timber gallery, as well as hands-on activities and a museum.
