Hotel Review: The RuMa Hotel and Residences, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Top 10 attractions in Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, is built on Malay, Chinese, Indian and European influence. These unique cultural and historical foundations, and their impact on architecture, cuisine, its people and day-to-day life make it a fascinating city to explore. If you’re planning a trip to Malaysia, and we whole-heartedly believe you should, don’t miss these must see sites in the city’s captivating capital.

Our top tip - download the Grab app, South-East Asia’s answer to Uber, to get around.

Thean Hou Temple

The striking architecture of the Thean Hou Temple, dedicated to the Chinese sea goddess Mazu, sits atop a hillside on the southern outskirts of the city. At six tiers, it’s one of the largest Chinese Buddhist temples in South East Asia. It’s a sea of vibrant red lanterns making it one of the most attractive too.

If you’re looking for a happy and prosperous marriage, this is the place to pray for it, according to the many Buddhist locals who regularly attend to worship at this active temple. Visit early (from 8am) to avoid the crowds and while there’s no strict dress code, we recommend modesty as a sign of respect.
