At the five-star G Tower Hotel, where business travellers can mix arty interiors with the latest work-inspired spaces in this ultra-modern abode in the heart of the bustling commercial and embassy districts.
Skewers of octopus, chicken and mushroom or tender pork belly dipped in spicy chilli sauce at one of KL’s numerous street food stalls in Bukit Bintang. If you’d rather sit and watch the crowds, nasi lemak, a rice dish with peanuts and anchovies, is a delicious snack served in street-side cafés.
A delicious and chilled (if not slightly bizarre) lychee drink called lin chee kang, which contains basil seeds, lotus nuts, gingko nuts, barley. If that’s not enough, it also comes served with a quail egg floating in the top. Frothed tea is experiencing a nostalgic revival in KL and the pouring ritual is quite a spectacle.
The central Lake Gardens – a vast and sprawling green space where peacocks and monkeys roam free. Located at the Islamic Arts Centre, visitors can escape the city bustle and enjoy some serenity. Finish off the day with a trip to the Petronas Towers.
