We stayed in a very trendy area called the Golden Triangle which had loads of fancy restaurants and wine bars, all of which we couldn't afford and there were so many shopping malls, all inter-connected and very easy to get lost in, not the best place to be on a budget!! We did ventured to China Town though (think every major city has one)to check out the cheap market stalls & fake designer goods - much better
The main highlight for us was the Petronas Twin Towers, once the tallest buildings in the world, they stand at an impressive 452 metres off street level - I believe they are still the tallest twin buildings in the world. The design of this impressive building is based on "simple Islamic geometric forms of two interlocking squares creating a shape of eight pointed stars, that represent important Islamic principles of unity within unity, harmony, stability and rationality" - I quoted this from a leaflet! So not only are the towers a fantastic part of the KL skyline, they actually have a meaning to the Malaysian people.
