Port Klang (Kuala Lumpur) Cruises
Port Klang is the main gateway to Malaysia. While principally a hopping-off point for Kuala Lumpur, the country’s largest seaport does have a fine reputation for excellent seafood.
The skyline of the nearby capital, Kuala Lumpur, is dotted with minarets and Mogul-style domes but dominated by the 451m-tall Petronas Twin Towers: a pair of glass-and-steel-clad skyscrapers with Islamic motifs and connected by a dizzying public skybridge and observation deck. The city also features British colonial-era landmarks such as the Kuala Lumpur Railway Station and the Sultan Abdul Samad Building.
This incredibly diverse city is awash with multicultural character; its colourful streets, shaded by the leafy canopies of banyan trees, are lined with the most delicious food stalls selling local specialities like dim sum and wonton noodles.
On a different level, glitzy air-conditioned malls such as Pavilion Kuala Lumpur and Mid Valley Megamall offer designer fashion and bargains, while Bangsar and Publika are the places to go for goods from offbeat independent designers.
A walk down these streets as they transform from soaring skyscrapers to busy coffee shops and then to lush green parkland with blossoms and ponds, is a truly unforgettable experience.
