Kuala Lumpur is known for several attractions, including Petronas Twin Towers, the Petaling Street flea market, and Batu Caves, which are over 400 million years old. A skyline filled with luminous skyscrapers and historical architecture, the city also hosts the central hub called the Golden Triangle, which comprises Bukit Bintang, KLCC, and Chinatown. Extensive shopping malls like Pavilion KL and Suria KLCC are among the most fantastic attractions in the city. A wide range of upscale labels from around the world is part of these malls. Gastronomes have plenty of good reasons to love the city, with restaurants and cafes abounding every corner and serving every type of dish conceivable. Outside of Kuala Lumpur’s steel, concrete, and glass, tourists will also find plenty of green spaces and natural attractions where they can delve into lush forests with hiking trails leading to waterfalls and hills. The capital city is considered one of the world's top tourist destinations with multi-faceted sights and attractions.
Muscat, the capital city of the Sultanate of Oman, is one of the most beautiful destinations in the region. With its incredible beaches, stunning mountains, spectacular deserts, impressive mosques, historical forts, unique museums, world-class opera, entertainment venues, and picturesque locales, Muscat is a paradise for visitors. The Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, with its 50m dome and phenomenal carpet that can accommodate up to 20,000 people, is a glorious piece of modern Islamic architecture. The magnificent Muttrah Souq is a traditional market over 200 years old. The intricate maze of narrow walkways inside the souq will lead you to shops that sell conventional Omani stuff like khanjars, kummahs, shawls, and frankincense, among others.
