The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre has the largest commercial kitchen in Malaysia, which is actually comprised of five separate kitchens — Chinese, Western, Cold, Pastry, and Malay, all certified Halal.
It’s fair to think of the KLCC precinct as its own mini city where the Kuala Lumpur Convention Center, hotels, restaurants, and attractions like a 50-acre park and a premium shopping mall all sit within a compact footprint under the shadow of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers (the tallest twin buildings in the world). Better yet, the precinct is also completely walkable due to a network of air-conditioned walkways and light rail service. The latter can connect visitors to Kuala Lumpur International Airport in under 45 minutes.
Already, the Kuala Lumpur Convention Center has more than 2,000 hotel rooms on site and more than 4,500 rooms within a five to 10-minute walk, but more are in the pipeline. The citizenM Kuala Lumpur Bukit Bintang hotel is a more recent addition, and others in the works include the 320-room Crowne Plaza Kuala Lumpur City Centre, the 166-room Radisson Red Kuala Lumpur City Centre, and the 226-room So Sofitel Kuala Lumpur, opening in 2023. A 750-room Fairmont property is also in the works along with a Park Hyatt hotel.
