    Things To Do

    The capital city of Kuala Lumpur has plenty to offer the international tourist in Malaysia. Highlights include:

    • View the twin Petronas Towers - one of the world's tallest buildings
    • Visit the Sin Sze Si Ya Temple - the oldest Chinese temple in Kuala Lumpur
    • Grab lunch on Jalan Alor - a huge collection of roadside restaurants
    • Walk in the Tun Abdul Razak Heritage Park - a 173-hectare landscaped expanse
    • Admire the Islamic Arts Museum - one of the biggest collections in the world

    Weather

    The weather over race weekends in Malaysia can be unpredictable. History shows that it is just as likely to be blisteringly hot as it is to experience a tropical typhoon. Suffice to say, it always makes for unpredictable and exciting races, and it pays to be prepared at both the circuit or on excursions.
