Kuala Lumpur is the largest city in Malaysia and is also its national capital with a population of 1.7 million. The Istana Negara, which is the official residence of the Malaysian king is located here. Kuala Lumpur has been host to multiple events since the 90’s including international sporting, political and cultural events. Here is where you will find the tallest twin towers in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers. These towers have now become an iconic symbol of the futuristic development of Malaysia. Other landmarks which are recognized the world over are the Petaling Street flea market and the 400 million year old Batu Caves.
Malaysia’s main hub is known as the Golden Triangle and consists of Bukit Bintang, KLCC and Chinatown. Some of the most popular tourist attractions happen to be large and expansive shopping malls like the Pavilion Kuala Lumpur and Suria KLCC because of the regular sales that go on throughout the year. These malls sell designer fashion and there are lots of bargains on offer. For lesser known labels and independent designers the best places to shop are Bangsar and Publika and the Central Market sells locally made souvenirs and handicrafts? Apart from shopping another favorite pastime of the locals is eating. In fact some of its best dining places are hawker stalls and traditional coffee shops that always have freshly cooked food.
Inspired by the country’s Malay, Chinese and Indian communities, Kuala Lumpur also has a mix of beautiful mosques and temples which are an essential part of life here. Even though Kuala Lumpur continues to move towards modernity it has still managed to safeguard its laid back ambience and lushness and has always been able to charm anyone that comes here.
