Kuala Lumpur has just been named as the world’s 10th most trending destination on the 2024 Travelers’ Choice Awards Best of the Best by the global online travel information and booking platform TripAdvisor.

Lauded as the cultural hub of Malaysia, TripAdvisor said that Kuala Lumpur is visually defined by the iconic Petronas KLCC Twin Towers which the listing touted as the “vision of modern architecture”.

Furthermore, TripAdvisor also noted the Malaysian capital’s dichotomy, whereby alongside modern buildings such as the KLCC Twin Towers, there are also structures such as the Sri Mahamariamman, the oldest Hindu temple in Malaysia with its facade described as “a colourful totem pole of iconography”.
