The national capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur is one of South-East Asia’s fastest growing metropolitan regions, a heady mix of Chinese, Malay and Indian communities which bind together to form the city’s interesting mosaic.
From architecture to art, from food to festivals, everything in this bustling city is made that much more interesting due to the infusion of different cultures. Vying for place across Kuala Lumpur’s dramatic skyline are some of the highest skyscrapers in the world, traditional mosques and Buddhist temples. The Petronas Towers, twin 88-storey towers that reach 450 m into the clouds, offer spectacular views of the city from the 86th floor observation deck. As if forming the perfect contrast to these towers, KL’s oldest Chinese Temple, the Sin Sze Si Ya Temple is a beautiful and ornate dedication to the religion it represents.
Visitors can simply take to the streets and marvel at the colorful homes and leafy gardens at their own pace. Kuala Lumpur presents its natural beauty, from the Titiwangsa Lake Gardens where locals head to relax, play and picnic, to the Batu Caves – giant limestone caverns that house holy and ancient Hindu temples.
