Private jet hire to Kuala Lumpur | 6 Reasons to Visit Kuala Lumpur

Hire a private jet to Malaysia and take in all the sights of the country’s capital city Kuala Lumpur. Kuala Lumpur offers visitors a thriving cultural scene, superb cuisine – from street food to Michelin-starred restaurants – enticing retail therapy, as well as the vertiginous Petronas Towers.

Petronas Towers

The impressive Petronas Towers stand at 451.9m. Featuring an Islamic geometric structure of two interlocking squares, creating an eight-pointed star shape, the Towers soar a mighty 88 storeys above the streets of the capital. There’s a double decker sky bridge on the 41st and 42nd floors – step out here or take the lift up to the 86th floor for even more jaw-dropping views of Kula Lumpur.

Islamic Arts Museum

Located at the edge of the Lake Gardens, just a short stroll from the National Mosque and National Planetarium, the Islamic Arts Museum houses the largest collection of Islamic artefacts in South East Asia. This light-filled treasure trove is encased by glass walls and also boasts a restaurant providing eclectic cuisine from Egypt to the Arab Gulf. Head to the ground floor shop for a great selection of gift ideas.

KL Forest Eco Park (formerly Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve)

If you want to experience original rainforest that once covered Kuala Lumpur then head to KL Forest Eco Park. Situated near the Kuala Lumpur Tower, the park still has many species of the original forest. There’s a bamboo walk that leads to a banana grove, and beautiful native flora and fauna, including the Surian Wangi tree with its huge buttress roots. Take a stroll along the Skywalk, an elevated (20m) walkway that links the Kuala Lumpur Tower entrance with the Information Centre.

Genting Highlands

Just 45 minutes out of Kuala Lumpur, the Genting Highlands are where the colonialists had their summer residences. This attractive hill station has become an all-year playground with its Vegas-style casino and indoor and outdoor theme parks. Outdoor attractions include jungle trekking, abseiling, rock climbing and star gazing.

Batu Caves

The Batu caves, a 30-minute train ride north of Kuala Lumpur, are a Hindu shrine dedicated to Lord Murugan. The limestone cliffs contain three major caves and are reached by a steep flight of steps. Watch out for the resident monkeys as they’ll snatch any food or water out of your hand in seconds. The largest of the caves is Cathedral Cave with its impressive 100m-high ceiling, where you’ll see several Hindu shrines. At the bottom of Batu Hill visitors will find the Art Gallery Cave and Museum Cave.

Planetarium Negara

Located in East Gardens by the lake, Planetarium Negara is an ideal attraction for lovers of science and astronomy, and easily spotted by its bright blue dome. The front entrance leads to two planetariums with interactive exhibits and a Space Theatre showing short IMAX movies with space themes. The Observatory Park has models of Chinese and Indian astronomy systems as well as powerful telescope for planet spotting.
