Genting Skyway is the world’s fastest mono cable car system, making trips to Genting Highlands more interesting. After ‘takeoff’, lush greenery, cool highland mist and the audio guide make the ride strangely serene. On the way, you’ll notice decorative statues amidst the foliage that look as artificial as the hill resort above.

Drinks & Nightlife
Zouk Kuala Lumpur, set along Jalan Tun Razak, encompasses six dynamically different themed rooms (namely Aristo & Rooftop Garden, Barsonic, Main Room, Phuture, Terrace Bar and Velvet Underground), and with frequent appearances from international heavyweights such as Above & Beyond and DJ Tiesto, it’s no wonder that Zouk is still a favourite among KL-lites even after nine years of existence.

Parks & Nature
It was just under 160 years ago that 87 Chinese prospectors paddled up the Klang river in search of tin deposits, thus establishing the settlement that would become KL. If the ghosts of those men returned to the city today, the one spot they would likely still recognise is the KL Forest Eco Park, a lush island of primary forest surrounded by some of the city’s most expensive real estate.

KL’s second lake gardens park, Titiwangsa capitalises on its setting on the northeast fringe of the city. The views across the mirrored surface of the lake towards the distinctive outlines of the nearby theatre Istana Budaya and, further away, the Petronas Towers and Menara KL, are stunning – particularly at dusk, as the city’s night lights flicker into life. Westwards, there are also grandstand views of The Capers @ Sentul East, a wavy-shaped pair of condo towers which stretch up 40 storeys. Popular with courting couples who come to stroll around the lake edge, Titiwangsa also has a jogging track, exercise area and plenty of options for floating on the lake from regular rowboats.

The best shopping opportunity is not actually within Bangsar itself, but very near it; the Mid Valley Shopping mall is one of the largest in Southeast Asia and is arguably the Klang Valley's most popular shopping attraction.
