Kuala Lumpur


Literally meaning “muddy river confluence” in Malay, Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia. It has grown from a small sleepy Chinese tin-mining village to a bustling metropolis of around 6.5 million in just 150 years. A remarkable cultural melting pot with some of the world’s greatest food at affordable prices, cheap luxury hotels, great shopping, and some great nature’s wonders in just few hours away. The city still displays some British heritage, as well as its multi-cultural traits, especially of Malay, Indian, Chinese and European traditions. This dynamic city has much to offer for every visitor all the year round.
