Visitors taking flights to Kuala Lumpur will experience a dizzying mix of architectural styles and the excellent range of food, inspired by the culturally diverse inhabitants of this bustling metropolis. Kuala Lumpur is home of the Malaysian parliament and official residence of the Malaysian King is located on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia (West Malaysia).

Peak Season:

Malaysians crowd the city during school holidays in early April, early August, and mid-November to early January. Thaipusam, a key Hindu festival, is dedicated as a celebration of thanksgiving to Lord Subramaniam. The festival is held on the tenth month of the Hindu calendar which falls between mid-January to mid-February. Thaipusam is celebrated by many including the Hindu individuals of South India and the Tamil-speaking Hindu communities throughout Malaysia. During the ceremony, parades and rituals take place throughout the whole country, with the most famous ceremonial acts performing at the Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur, which sees over one million people gather each year. Travellers and locals gather to soak up the memorising colours, noise and activities of Thaipusam. Most hotels will be full during this period, so make sure you book your flight to Kuala Lumpur and accommodations in advance. This will also allow you to take advantage of possible cheap flight deals and avoid disappointment.

Off Season:

With its year-round, uniform climate, KL does not have an off season. The closest you get to a low season are the holiday weekends when many city dwellers head for the beaches. Take advantage and search for cheap flights to Kuala Lumpur and stay in some of the cheapest 5-star hotels in the world.

Why Visit KL?

Find a cheap flight to Kuala Lumpur city’s architecture is a mix of old colonial buildings, Asian, Malay Islamic and modern of which the most sky scraping is the Petronas Towers, the tallest twin buildings in the world. To enjoy the view from the Skybridge on the 41st floor (at 558ft) free, snap up one of the 1,300 timed tickets given out each day. The KL Tower offers fantastic views too, from 905ft above ground level.

Down on the ground, KL is a mecca for shoppers. The Bukit Bintang area is where most shoppers go. Souvenir hunters head for Central Market, a great starting point for a wander through Chinatown (its heart is Petaling Street, home to bustling night markets) and Little India, a jumble of stalls selling brightly coloured saris and food stands offering Indian snacks.

Kuala Lumpur’s annual Motorcycle Grand Prix in October is one of Malaysia’s best-loved and most popular sporting events. Taking place at the impressive Sepang F1 International Circuit, huge crowds gather together to embrace the distinctive sounds, excitement and atmosphere of Kuala Lumpur’s highpoint of the sporting calendar. The racing circuit is also home to the Malaysian leg of the Formula One, Formula BMW Asia and Porsche Carrera Cup Asia racing tournaments.

For a brief respite from the city, Kuala Lumpur Lake Gardens (Taman Tasik Perdana) is green and verdant with resident monkeys.
