Thinking of hosting your next event outside Australia? Here are 5 great reasons to choose Kuala Lumpur.


Kuala Lumpur has to be one of the world’s most easily accessible cities, there are 14 direct flights per day from Australia’s main cities making flying to KL super easy. It is also a great half way meeting spot for companies with offices in Europe, North Asia and the Middle East, with over 40 major International airlines flying in and out of KL’s International Airport


Not only is KL easy to get to, it is also very easy and inexpensive to get around. The city has commuter rail and both light rail and a monorail system making getting around a breeze. If you prefer to walk, the streets are well signposted and many pavements are covered with canopies and trees to avoid the sun. There is also a 1.1km long air conditioned pedestrian bridge linking the Pavilion Shopping Mall to the KL Convention Centre


MICE facilities in Kuala Lumpur are second to none, with the cities modern infrastructure and innovative technology there is no better international destination for events. Amongst the best MICE offering in the city is Berjaya Times Square Hotel. With 14 function areas, it is excellent for both business meetings and large scale conference and events. The Manhattan Ballroom holds up to 2000 people and is pillarless; meaning all guests have unobstructed views of the stage and entertainment.


With so many cultures making up the bustling city of KL the cuisine is some of the best in Asia. Street food is found almost everywhere in the city serving a mix of Malay, Chinese and Indian delicacies such as laksa, satay, and Rendang curry. High end restaurants are also popping up all throughout the city including Michelin star establishments such as Nobu and Pang’s Kitchen 


If there is one thing that is not lacking in KL it is the variety of shopping. With luxury shopping centres, to bazaars and night markets there is something for every taste and budget. Berjaya Times Square shopping mall even has one of Malaysia’s biggest rollercoasters (inside the shopping mall!!)
