Malaysia's capital Kuala Lumpur was founded in 1857 and is one of the world's youngest capitals. With its 1.6 million inhabitants, the city is the largest in the country and is located on the western Malacca Peninsula.
There is an equatorial climate here, which means that the average temperature is around 25 degrees all year round and the humidity is high. There are rainy seasons throughout the country between March-April and September-November.
The most famous building in the city is Petronas Twin Towers. The twin towers are 452 meters high and have 88 floors and were inaugurated in 1998. The towers are connected to each other by a bridge on the 41st and 42nd floors, where you can get between the towers, 170 meters above the ground. The bridge is not only built as a tourist attraction but so that you can get between the buildings in emergency situations. On the 86th floor there is a viewing platform with a fantastic view of several kilometers.
At the bird park "KL Bird Park" you get the opportunity to see, among other things, pelicans, ostriches, peacocks and parrots up close. A free bird show is organized here every day and several times a day you get the opportunity to join in and feed the birds. The park is open every day of the week. For the shopping enthusiast, there are great opportunities to satisfy the desire to buy.
One of the largest shopping malls is Berjaya Time Square. Here you will find everything you can think of, over 1000 shops, 65 restaurants, a 3D cinema and even a giant indoor amusement park, Berjaya Times Square Theme Park. The building also houses a hotel with approximately 1,200 luxury suites.
Malaysian cuisine is very similar to Chinese but also has influences from India, with a perfect combination of different flavors and techniques.
The country's national dish is said to be Nasi Lemak. Rice cooked in coconut milk with fried anchovies and hot sambal sauce. Served usually with boiled egg and cucumber wrapped in banana leaves.
A tip is to visit Jalan Alor Street. Every day at 5 pm, it is transformed into a single large outdoor restaurant where tables and chairs are displayed across the street. The menus are in front and it is easy to walk around and look at what the different restaurants have to offer.
There are no direct flights from Scandinavia to Kuala Lumpur, but Malaysia Airlines offers direct flights from several cities in Europe, including London and Frankfurt.
Kuala Lumpur International Airport is located 50 km south of the city center. The cheapest way to get from the airport to the city center is with the airport bus Express Coach to KL Sentral, but the fastest is probably the KLIA Express train which runs about four times an hour and takes 28 minutes to the city center.

The Premier League started on 12/9 and initially the stands will be closed. The clubs' arenas are approved for reduced capacity and when fans are welcome in the stands, it is anything from 20% -40% as it looks right now.
How does this affect you as a traveler?
You have probably read in the media that the places that are released will only go to members of the club. This is to some extent true, but we are proud to announce that GO Sport Travel, through long and very good relations with the clubs, will keep our agreements in line with the reduced capacity the clubs will soon present.
With the help of GO Sport Travel AB, you can continue to be one of those who sit in the stands and experience the Premier League live, already in October!
It is planned that each visitor needs to take certain wise measures, such as wearing a mouth guard, etc. In addition, each visitor's name will be printed on the ticket, and subsequent identity checks will take place upon arrival at the arena area.
In short, each visitor must have their ticket registered by the club. The registration is of course handled by GO Sport Travel on behalf of the visitor.
The clubs are very happy to have a high level of security in which visitors they have in place, both for themselves and the visitors. The clubs also hope that the number of less desirable ticket players will decrease. We encourage you to be observant when listening to other actors.
There may be ticket / tour operators who will convey that the above restrictions will not be required, but this is not correct information.
We look forward to announcing soon when we, together with the clubs, open the sale for the upcoming Premier League season.
