Where to stay near Bukit Bintang

Exploring Bukit Bintang

Kuala Lumpur is a popular stop for many visitors to Southeast Asia as Kuala Lumpur International Airport receives many intercontinental flights and is a major transport hub in Southeast Asia. Air and land connections from here cover almost the entire region, including Australia.

There are a number of districts in Kuala Lumpur. The central business district is often referred to as the Golden Triangle, or Kuala Lumpur City Centre, not to be confused with the old city centre, located west of here. Bukit Bintang is a predominantly retail district located in the central area, centred on Jalan Bukit Bintang. The district, site of the infamous race riots of 1980, has been refurbished and is now one of Kuala Lumpur’s most-visited areas and a retail and trendy dining hotspot.
