Kuala Lumpur City Centre itself is around 40 – 45 minutes away by car from our conference venue. Once you have reached the city centre, more means of public transport such as trains and buses are popular with our tourists, giving you easy access to all the top places to visit in the city.


Attractions That Cannot be Missed

The Petronas Twin Towers should be a definite must-see on your trip here. The post-modern architecture is a sight to behold and dominates the skyline of Kuala Lumpur's central business district. If you are here with your family, take them to Aquaria KLCC, an oceanarium located just below the towers. The centre is home to a great number of aquatic wildlife, and can provide a great educational experience to not just the young.

Malaysia is made unique by the convergence of culture with elements of daily life. A good trip is never complete without some tokens to bring home and remember it by. In Malaysia, Central Market and Petaling Street is where you'll find the best bargains for local trinkets and souvenirs. The bustling area is abundant with stores to quench a true shopper's thirst. Elements of the local Chinese culture are visible as you walk down Petaling Street, from the decorations to simple coffee shop scenes that resemble those off postcards of old Malaya (as Malaysia was known pre-independence).


If you are a big fan of nature, Kuala Lumpur has just the treat for you. Batu Caves is a 400-million-year-old limestone hill that sits just 11km outside Kuala Lumpur city. In Malaysia, it is the focal point of the annual festival of Thaipusam. With temples built within caves in the hills, the site stands out for not only its cultural significance but its aesthetic charm. Many visitors make the 272-step ascent to the caves to marvel at the peaceful cohabitation of nature and man. Watch out for the occupants of the hill, particularly monkeys, who may take it upon themselves to take some of your belongings off you.


Located in the serene and scenic Kuala Lumpur Lake Gardens, the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park is only 10 minutes' drive away from the city centre of Kuala Lumpur. It is the home to more than 3,000 birds of approximately 200 species of local and foreign birds. One of KL Bird Park's most extraordinary feature is that in Zone 1, 2 and 3, birds are let free in the aviary which closely resembles their natural habitat. With this free-flight concept, birds are able to breed naturally in this unique environment.


Putrajaya, the federal administrative capital of the nation and the home of this year's APOA Trauma and Infection Meeting 2017, is integral to the identity of modern Malaysia. The location of the meeting is a convenient 40 minutes journey from the iconic Petronas Twin Towers. A planned development, the district has number of attractions and is not far from some the country's most well-known landmarks as mentioned above.


You are spoilt for choice with places to go that encourage your competitive and thrill-seeking spirit. Many theme parks and sports complexes, such as Marina Putrajaya are not far off. The facilities at Marina Putrajaya are divided into sections, namely land-based and lake-based facilities. We highly recommend the lake-based canoeing, long boats, jet skis, water-skiing and other exciting water activities. Don't hesitate to ask your hotel main desk for options of other exciting activities to engage in.


The Putrajaya Botanic Gardens showcase the best in local species of flora and is a fantastic set-up for a morning or evening walk. Not to be missed are the Canna Walk, Fern Garden, Floral Steps, African Collection, Tropical America Collection, Hibiscus Walk, Bougainvillea Tunnel, Pandanus Walk, Orchid Path, Palm Hill, Vine Garden, and Heliconia Trail. While there, you should not miss the exquisite Moroccan Pavilion, with its breath-taking architecture and brilliant incorporation into the gardens.

Not to worry. To assist our conference visitors in getting to these places to visit, our appointed local tour agent will have ready packages for you to choose from.

This meeting provides a fantastic platform and opportunity for anyone visiting Malaysia for the first time to take in the elements that make the country unique, and for return visitors to fall in love with it all over again.
