Sick of touristy spots in KL? Get the real deal here.
Do you know that the name Kuala Lumpur (KL) literally means “muddy confluence”?
Located near the confluence of the Gombak and Klang rivers, Malaysia’s capital city was named after the riverine intersection which can still be seen and photographed behind the historic Merdeka Square.
Today, the vibrant Asian city bears little resemblance to its name. Instead, KL is a colourful mash-up of tradition and modernity, exciting for shopaholics, foodies and party-goers alike.
When in KL, make like a KL-ite: eat, shop, and paint the town red. Here are some of PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur’s recommendations on places you can visit to do just that.
