4. Kuala Lumpur
Malaysia’s capital and largest city has much to offer travelers. Perhaps best known for the Petronas Twin Towers (the world’s tallest twin towers), KL is a very popular tourist destination and routinely makes the list of top 10 most visited cities in the world.
A mix of colonial, modern, Asian, and Malay architecture flows through the city, giving it a unique look you don’t usually find in other Southeast Asian capitals. The National Palace and the House of Parliament are two examples of stunning KL architecture—well worth a look even if you don’t plan on exploring inside.
