Among the things that every tourist should do is visit the Petronas Towers, which was once the tallest building in the world, but has since become eclipsed by other newer buildings. Yet, its 88 stories are still a pretty amazing engineering feat. Once at the Petronas Towers, visitors can engage in a number of activities such as attend a concert of the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, try fine dining at a number of restaurants that are on offer or take a tour of some of the educational exhibits here. Of course one should not forget to go out on the viewing deck and gaze at the Kuala Lumpur skyline.
Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur is another must visit destination as like many Chinatowns the world over, this one also has its own authentic restaurants, medicine shops and antique boutiques. What really makes this Chinatown different is the people; many of those here are first or second generation migrants and their culture is still unadulterated. Also as this is one of the oldest parts of the city, some interesting works of architecture can be seen.
The Kuala Lumpur Bird Park located on the outskirts of the city is also an interesting attraction. It is extremely popular among young children and wildlife enthusiasts. It is today one of the finest aviaries in the world and houses hundreds of different species including indigenous and migrant species.
Visitors at a service apartment in Kuala Lumpur such as the ones in Somerset Ampang Kuala Lumpur can explore these attractions and more during their stay.
