National Geographic recently released its newly expanded Best of the World 2024 guide that shares superlative experiences, hotels, restaurants, and wellness and cultural spots worth a trip this year.

One of the categories under this Best of the World 2024 guide is Cultural Spots and you’ll never guess which location has earned itself a spot. Nope, it’s not in Malaysia but it is Malaysian-owned!

The Battersea Power Station in London has been named among the best Cultural Spots to visit in 2024.

According to a report by New Straits Times, the £9 billion (RM54,178,105,275.00) power station was restored and made into a multifunction destination by a consortium of companies involving Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB), Sime Darby Property, S P Setia Bhd, and the Employees Provident Fund (EPF).

“From the 1930s until the 1980s, this hulking brick coal plant provided up to a fifth of London’s power. A decade-long, $6 billion renovation means the smokestack-capped, 1.5 million-square-foot building is now a stylish shopping, dining, and entertainment hub,”

“Repurposed elements include Control Room B, a cocktail bar amid the dials and synchro-scopes of a one-time command post, and Lift 109, a glassed-in viewpoint atop one of Battersea’s iconic 357-foot-tall smokestacks. Visitors can stay onsite at the Art’otel with its rooftop pool and art gallery,” National Geographic shared.
