The Kuala Lumpur landmarks and Kuala Lumpur sightseeing places are rather spread out and would require some planning if you want to visit them all. There also some which are fairly clustered and you could with a fair bit of walking cover them on foot. With the Malaysian hot humid weather, you would break out in a sweat easily from all that exercise so carry a small hand towel with you to mop off those sweat and drink plenty of water!

Depending on your interest you may want to visit some Kuala Lumpur landmarks and for others skip the sightseeing of those places altogether for something that would interest you more.

Personally I liked old buildings, they have charm and character. And Kuala Lumpur like any other cities that I have visited in the world has its fair share of old colonial buildings.

The typical place that most tourists would go includes the Dataran Merdeka Square where the interesting Sultan Abdul Samad building with the clock tower dubbed the mini Big Ben of Kuala Lumpur; the Pasar Seni Central Market with its art and crafts shops, Petaling Street KL China Town with its cheap knock-offs goods and vendors selling souvenirs and t-shirts, the KL Tower for a good 360° panoramic bird’s eye view of Kuala Lumpur city, the modern Petronas Twin Towers in KLCC, and of course many more!

Some places you go for the feel of the hustle and bustle of city life as people move about attending to their business. A hodgepodge of culture and people of different races working together to make Kuala Lumpur a truly metropolitan city! The busy Bintang Walk with all its shopping and dining is a must visit!

And after the sunsets, KL city is still busy with its Kuala Lumpur nightlife. What other city in the world could you find food 24 hours a day seven days a week? Even in the suburbs we could find food stalls where people gather together socializing with some meals and drinks.

Well anyway here is a list of Kuala Lumpur landmarks that you could go for sightseeing:
