Flying from

Kuala Lumpur (KL) is everything that a tourist guide promises, and much more. Does it have skyscrapers rising high above the city? Yes. Is it a street food heaven? Most definitely! Does it boast architectural and artistic wonders like Petronas Towers, Menara KL Tower, Batu Caves, Islamic Art Museum as well as Tun Abdul Heritage Park? Of course! But what sets Kuala Lumpur apart is its ability to reinvent itself as per the changing generation of travellers. So the experiences that really make KL a tourist's delight are backpacking opportunities to the Genting Highlands and nearby Singapore, discovering faith in Thean Hou or Sin Sze Si YaTemple, and pondering over life walking near Titiwangsa Lake Gardens. To explore all this and more, start searching for cheap tickets from UK to Kuala Lumpur on Travel Trolley.

If it is luxury you seek, the golden triangle of Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Ampang and Bukit Bintang is where you will find some of the most luxurious hotels in Kuala Lumpur.

Best Time to Visit Kuala Lumpur

Weather in Kuala Lumpur stays hot and humid all year long, making travel to the city favourable throughout the year. However, the monsoon in Malaysia divides the country in two regions, and Kuala Lumpur gets hit the hardest between the months of March and April. Though, the city receives partial showers even between October and January; they remain the best months to visit Kuala Lumpur despite the high prices due to Christmas and New Year celebrations. The period between May and August is another great time to be in Kuala Lumpur. As the months also coincide with the summer holidays in Britain, you may check out special offers on Travel Trolley to book discounted Kuala Lumpur flights during this time of the year.
