Kuala Lumpur – or KL, as it is often called – is Malaysia's capital. It is a vibrant, multi-cultural, multilingual city made up of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European cultures.
Malaysia is fast becoming a preferred destination for lower priced, high quality cosmetic surgeries, with this sector growing year on year. With the Malaysian government's investment tax allowance, private healthcare facilities promoting medical tourism have been encouraged to invest in internationally recognised accreditation schemes and medical equipment. As a result, they have a sophisticated healthcare infrastructure and ensure care standards are top quality.
Before and after your surgery there is time to unwind, recharge and explore. Make the most of your vacation with these suggestions.
Even though it is a bustling city, Kuala Lumpur offers plenty of options for a slower pace. If you’d like to relax at a spa, try Be Urban Wellness KL, a high-end health and wellness centre, or Hammam Spa KL, set within Publika Shopping Centre. If art is your key to relaxing, you’ll enjoy the OUR ArtProjects gallery space or the Ilham public art gallery.
Embrace the culture of Malaysia:
From expansive, high-end shopping offerings to local markets selling everything imaginable, Kuala Lumpur has something to offer every shopper. If you are after designer purchases, try Pavilion Kuala Lumpur and KLCC, two top-end malls with designer boutiques like Gucci and Chanel along with international chains such as Zara and Gap.
If you are looking for more of an authentic, local experience try Chinatown night markets, the most famous night market in Kuala Lumpur, or the nearby Central Market. For a bit of everything, head to Bukit Bintang, the shopping and entertainment district of Kuala Lumpur.
Traditional Malay dining has rice as the centrepiece of the meal. Nasi lemak (rice steamed with coconut milk and pandan leaves) and congee (rice porridge) are popular dishes. Because of the multicultural mix in KL, there are many other authentic meals to try, like the Malaysian Chinese Char Kway Teow and Curry Laksa, or the Malaysian Indian Chapati and Biryani.
For a foodie adventure, head to Jalan Alor for authentic street food or the award-winning Hutong Food Court. For something away from the hustle and bustle, Rama V Kuala Lumpur is a must-try hidden gem.
