Kuala Lumpur is the proud capital of Malaysia and is known throughout the region by the initials KL. It is a truly international city, but one where intricate mosques and temples still stand side by side against towering modern sky-scrapers. Kuala Lumpur is a colourful, cosmopolitan city and a melting pot of cultures.
If you are adventurous with cuisine, Kuala Lumpur has a great restaurant scene and bustling street markets, particularly in China Town. The city also offers some of the best priced shopping in the region and as English is widely spoken, the shopping experience is pleasant rather than challenging. There are a number of international style shopping malls that usually have at least a floor dedicated to cuisine from around the region – food and shopping is high on the daily agenda here!
Kuala Lumpur is well known for its iconic architectural designs with the futuristic and highly impressive Petronas Towers dominating the skyline. A trip to the top of the towers offers fantastic views of the city. Try it at night for the most dramatic impact.
