Like any other city centres, this is where everything’s at. From the best shopping malls like Berjaya Times Square to famous attractions like the Petronas Twin Towers, this is the area that never sleeps. It’s also the district with the oldest and most breathtaking mosques in the whole city.

Take a stroll at KLCC Park and soak in the beauty of this city, then take a break from shopping in mega malls to shopping at iconic local streets like the Petaling Shopping Street. There’s so much to do here, but there’s also a huge number of mosques in just this bit of Kuala Lumpur.
