Kuala Lumpur, or as locals affectionately call it KL, is uniquely captivating with its rich diversity and multicultural heritage. As the epicentre of Malaysia, this capital city, which literally means “Muddy Confluence” (resulting from the meeting of the Klang and Gombak rivers), alludes to its current state, which is a beautiful merging of tradition with modernity, man-made wonders with natural beauty, and local culture with international influences.

Although it’s easier said than done, try to pack light, as it makes for easier travel. Plus many things can be purchased in the city.

Kuala Lumpur is a cosmopolitan city where dress and fashion run the gamut. However, lightweight, casual clothing is ideal. Comfortable shoes such as sandals and tennis shoes are a must for walking through the city and jungle. Bring a light sweater and rain jacket for the cooler, wetter days. Visitors should be more conservative in their dress, especially in mosques, temples and other public areas.

While the city is shielded by looming skyscrapers and oftentimes clouds, it’s still a good idea to bring sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses to prevent sunburn. Also, a small first aid kit is always beneficial. While it may never be used, it’s always a good idea to keep pain medications, antibiotics, anti-diarrhoea medication, water purification tablets, rehydrating solutions and insect repellent.

  • Capital – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
  • Currency – Malaysian Ringgit
  • Language – Malay is the official language. English, Cantonese and Mandarin, Hindi and Tamil are also spoken.
  • Time Zone – GMT + 8 hours

Kuala Lumpur experiences a pleasantly warm tropical climate. Year-round, the weather remains agreeable with average daytime temperatures between 21°C to 33°C and high humidity levels. Temperatures drop slightly at night.

Although it rains all throughout the year, the most rainfall occurs between March and April and between September and November. The time between June and August tends to be the driest, because unlike many other parts of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur is not as affected by the strong monsoon winds from the east and west.

The high travel seasons coincide with European and North American holidays and school breaks. December through January and June to August receive the most traffic. The low season is during late winter and early fall. However, many travellers choose to plan their visits around the popular festivals in Malaysia – Chinese New Year, Deepavali and Thaipusam being just a few.
