Product description

SmartGuide Kuala Lumpur reveals this cosmopolitan city through snappy, easy-to-find listings, complemented by beautiful, full-colour pictures and detailed mapping. Targeted at confident and curious travellers in their mid-20s to mid-50s, the listings provide all the information needed to keep foodies, clubbers, culture vultures and keen shoppers more than busy during a short to medium-length break. The guide starts with an engaging introduction to Kuala Lumpur and a round-up of this vibrant city's highlights, suggesting six must-see attractions. It then explores 10 districts and regions in and around the city in the Areas section, from the central Historic Heart and shopping enclave of Bukit Bintang to the planned satellite towns in the Klang Valley and the natural splendours of Kuala Selangor. Each chapter condenses the city's important neighbourhoods to one spread, giving the reader instant access to all the key sights and attractions. A detailed locator map and tone-setting photography provide quick orientation. The A-Z section is the heart of the guide, comprising a comprehensive directory of the destination's key attractions organised by theme and then by area, including Architecture, Bars and Pubs, Hotels, Museums and Galleries, Restaurants and Shopping, among many others. With over 400 listings chosen and updated by a local writer, readers can pick and choose what to see and do whether trying street food or exploring glitzy malls. In addition, Insight Guides' trademark cultural and historical focus is evident in the chapters devoted to Dance, Film, History, Literature and Music, which provide high-quality background information to Kuala Lumpur. Detailed practical information is found in Essentials and Transport, to help readers get the most out of their visit to the Malaysian capital. Finally, the Atlas section offers fully indexed street mapping to help readers find their way around easily.
