No city is complete without stadiums and Kuala Lumpur is home to several.
The Malaysia Cup (football/soccer; Piala Malaysia) is held annually at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium, just south of KL in the Bukit Jalil area. Much closer to central KL one can find Stadium Merdeka, which plays host to international pop stars and sporting events alike! Finally, and somewhat mysteriously, there is the Chin Woo Stadium, located in Jalan Hang Jebat, where an adventurous traveler can enjoy lion dance, dragon dance and wushu performances year-round.
Kuala Lumpur hosts a considerable array of sporting events year-round. Besides the Malaysia Cup, the Formula One World Championship is often held in KL, to die-hard screaming fans and sightseers alike. For more interactive sporting events, look no further than the annual Kuala Lumpur Marathon, held in October.
KL is also home to a selection of private gyms:
