Malaysia's capital city is the place to start a fun filled family vacation. The city itself has lots to offer.
Food, sight-seeing and shopping
Places of interest include the KL tower with a revolving restaurant, the twin Petronas towers, the palace, the war memorial etc plus the new modern city of Putrajaya just half an hours drive by car.This is a must visit place too. There are a variety of foods available for everyone. Fast food outlets like KFC, MAC,etc.to Chinese,Thai,Malaysian...endless choices.Add to that many street food joints near major tourist places.
We were amazed to visit the Times Square mall.It is really huge- ten floors of shopping and intertainment,and two towers upto 44 floors of hotel rooms with great views. The top of the mall between the two hotel towers has a big swimming pool.
If you love shopping you can spend days just window shopping in many such malls.But for fun and games you can become a kid too in the various theme parks in KL.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc.
Best to land in KL airport, take a taxi ( apx 100 RM) to city center.Other sight see or shopping can be by various tranport option or on foot.
It is very safe to move around in both KL in Genting.
We found that exchange rates vary from place to place hence the best choice is to either take RM or convert US dollars at bank counters.Shops in malls offer very low exchange rates.
