Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: Day Off

Mar 1, 2004
2004 / March 2004

Arrive at the state-of-the-art Kuala Lumpur International Airport and hop aboard KLIA Ekspres (www.KLIAekspres.com). No need to rush. A train runs between the airport and KL (as Kuala Lumpur is more commonly known) about every 15 minutes. The fare is about $10 each way. This 28-minute nonstop ride transports you to KL Sentral (stesensentral.com) right in the heart of the city and its vibrant array of historic attractions, fabulous shops, great restaurants, luxury hotels and interesting bars and clubs.

1. Hop in a cab and head straight to Petronas Towers. As seen in the Sean Connery/Catherin Zeta-Jones movie “Entrapment,” the towers are the tallest twin buildings in the world. The state-of-the-art structure features more than 32.000 windows and rises through the clouds to a stunning height of 1,483 feet. The sky bridge,which joins the two towers at the 41st floor, is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. and from 3 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. daily except Mondays. A total of 1,280 complimentary tickets are offered daily on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 8:30 a.m. Get your ticket first, then plan your day accordingly.

2. If you’re assigned a morning visit to the bridge, stick around and check out Galleria Suria KLCC. Located at the base of the towers, it’s one of KL’s swankiest malls. Pop into Aesana (www.aseanamalaysia.com) for great gifts and Asian trinkets.

3. After visiting the sky bridge, it’s just a quick ride to the Sultan Abdul Samad Building. A city landmark that dates to 1897, the building once housed British government offices. Today, it’s home to KL’s Supreme Court.

4. Next stop, the city’s train station, located on Jalan Hishamuddin. The Moorish-style terminal dates to 1910. Across the street, visit the National Mosque, home to a 240-foot-high minaret.

5. Getting hungry? Grab a cab and head to the Menara Kuala Lumpur, the world’s fourt-largest telecommunications tower. Located in the tower at 925 feet above ground level, Restoran Seri Angkasa is a revolving restaurant that specializes in a wide array of local and Continental cuisine. Lunch (about $20 including the ride up to the tower) is served daily from noon to 2:30 p.m.

6.If heights aren’t your thing, stick to ground level and wander through Bintang Walk, where you’ll discover an abundance of restaurants, including The Regent Hotel, home to the award-winning Cantonese restaurant Lai Ching Yuen.

7.After lunch, make your way to the National Museum, located on the fringe of Taman Tasik Perdana, otherwise known as Kuala Lumpur’s Lake Garden District. This is the principle museum in the country and a great place to begin to explore its rich history.

Singer Palace Hotel Review

The idea of a boutique hotel in the center of Rome’s busiest crossroads may seem counterintuitive, but Singer Palace Hotel pulls off the impossible thanks to its minimalist exteriors, 30 gorgeous one-of-a-kind rooms and suites, smart-but-whimsical décor, simple-yet-elegant Roman cuisine and a stellar mixology-driven rooftop bar. It’s a delightful study in contrasts — a quiet, intimate and plush setting nestled within a maze containing many of Rome’s most noteworthy sites.
