Book flights to Kuala Lumpur (KUL)


Kuala Lumpur – mining village to modern metropolis

Book flights to Kuala Lumpur to experience Malaysia’s eclectic capital. It’s a city dominated by the flickering spires of the giant Petronas Towers – where you’ll find modern mega-malls and shopping districts sitting alongside ancient temples and regal colonial architecture.

KL, as it’s known locally, has grown massively since starting life as a tin-mining village in the Klang Valley. See the sprawling city in all its glory from the observation deck of the KL Tower or take a stroll in the sky across the Petronas Towers walkway.

Dive into the city’s beating heart, its Old Town, to explore markets and street food vendors, as well as British-era influenced governmental buildings.

Head to Bukit Bintang for fantastic shopping or explore the wondrous Batu Caves, a Hindu temple inside an expansive carved-out limestone hill. Prayers and music reverberate around the walls of this religious marvel as fresh rainwater drips from the ceiling.

Book flight tickets to Kuala Lumpur with Etihad Airways and prepare to uncover the culture, history and much more of this effervescent Asian capital.

Reasons to visit Kuala Lumpur

Admire the Petronas Towers

The dual spires of the Petronas Towers are the iconic symbols of Kuala Lumpur. Standing at almost 1,500 feet tall, they were the tallest buildings in the world until 2004.

An architectural wonder, the towers are home to a philharmonic concert hall, a vast shopping mall and the regional offices of many of the world’s most recognisable brands.

Head to the Skybridge on the 41st floor for stunning views of KL – and be sure to visit the towers at night to see them illuminated in a dazzling light show.

Explore the Batu Caves

The Batu Caves are a marvellous example of man and nature working in unison. Inside the network of limestone caves – just north of Kuala Lumpur – is a Hindu temple dedicated to the Tamil God Murugan.

The entrance to the cave network is dominated by the imposing Lord Murugan Statue. You’ll climb 272 steps as part of your pilgrimage to the cave entrance.

Inside, the roof of the cave looms high above, as monks and other worshippers stroll between the interior temples. A truly spiritual experience, it’s one not to be missed.

Shop and eat at Bukit Bintang

For a little retail therapy, head to Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur’s premier shopping district. Home to all things fashion and entertainment, the flashing advertising boards, mega-malls and upmarket shops in this inner-city district are reminiscent of New York’s Times Square.

There are plenty of food options here too, with local and international chains all jostling for attention. You’ll find upmarket hotels and plenty of vibrant nightlife spots too.

A walk through Bukit Bintang to the west will bring you to Petaling Street, home of the city’s Chinatown district. This is brimming with Szechuan and Cantonese restaurants, unique stalls and street traders.
