Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia, is an interesting blend of modern skyscrapers, historic landmarks, and Islamic motifs. Its most iconic buildings are the Petronas Towers, with 88 floors and a height of 451 meters (1,479.66 feet).
Some other must-sees in Kuala Lumpur include the Batu Caves, a Hindu temple set in limestone caves, Bukit Bintang for shopping, dining, and nightlife, and the Kuala Lumpur Tower. With such an amazing skyline, it would be a pity not to be able to enjoy the view from the comfort of your hotel, especially if it’s from the hotel’s rooftop pool.
