Kuala Lumpur has a lot to offer as a travel destination, the colourful cultures from the racial diversity and the vast variety of cuisines available continues to be a draw for people to visit Kuala Lumpur. It is home to the world-famous Twin Towers at the city-centre filled with skyscrapers which will leave you in awe; or drive up to the renowned hill resort Genting Highlands for the cooling weather which is just an hour away from the bustling city.
