TripAdvisor Reveals Malaysia's Most Talked About Attractions In 2012

KUALA LUMPUR: TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site, today revealed the highly rated attractions in Malaysia that travellers around the world were talking about the most in 2012.

In a statement, TripAdvisor said the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur topped the list.

"These towers are really stunning, especially at night when they are lit up.

"They are so big that it was hard to get them both in a single picture," said a TripAdvisor traveller.

The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC), which came in at number two, has, as one TripAdvisor traveller said, anything and everything you need, from coffee places to shops, restaurants and bars.

At number three is the Langkawi Cable Car, Kedah.

"You can feast your eyes on the breathtaking greenery along the way and we had a beautiful view of the sunset too," said a traveller.

TripAdvisor said the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park, at number four, has been described by a traveller as an add-on after visiting the National Orchid Garden.

"We spent three hours there watching the various birds soar through the huge canopy area.

"I would recommend this to anyone even marginally interested in birds," he added.

TripAdvisor said the top ten picks in the Malaysia's most talked about attractions in 2012, from premier shopping malls to historical museums and tropical conservation parks, are ranked according to the number of reviews received on TripAdvisor.com based on global internet protocol addresses between Jan 1, 2012, and Dec 31, 2012.

TripAdvisor, which started in March 2011 in Malaysia, is the world's largest travel website and operates in 30 countries worldwide, including China.

It features 1,443 hotels, 1,235 bed and breakfast inns, 143 vacation rentals, 3,024 restaurants and 941 things-to-do, with a collaboration with Malaysia's leading organisations like Malaysia Airlines, AirAsia, Maxis and Tourism Malaysia.
