Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia’s capital city, located on the south west coast of the peninsular, is a strange mixture of new and old. Original colonial buildings stand proud against the ultra-modern architecture and high-rise office blocks that have become the necessary status symbols for a leading Asian city of today.

With a thriving Indian quarter and a vibrant Chinatown, Kuala Lumpur (or KL as it’s often referred too) has a distinct blend of cultures which is especially evident in the endless choice of places to eat that range from the humble street seller to some of the finest dinning in the whole of Asia.

Literally meaning muddy estuary, Kuala Lumpur dates back to the mid 1800’s and it was the first settlers, prospectors in search of tin, who gave this great city its name.

With its iconic Petronas Twin Towers, historical buildings and the unsurpassed views from the Menara KL Telecom Tower, Kuala Lumpur has a whole host of attractions and if you happen to be in KL for the annual Hindu festival of Thaipusam, a trip to the Batu Caves is an experience like no other.
