"Malaysia, Truly Asia,” is a unique multiracial and multicultural country, and nowhere is this more apparent than in Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. Every corner you pass is a testament to the assimilation of all races, young and old, regardless of origin and class. From the ultramodern skyscrapers to the quaint coffee shops and heritage buildings of yesteryears, there is something for everyone to behold.

Feeling hungry? The wide variety of cuisines in KL will astound you. From fanciful fine-dining experiences to the humble food courts and roadside stalls, there is something for every palate. And the best part of it all is that food is available round-the-clock! One tip: go where the crowds are, and you are sure to be treated to culinary bliss! 

If you are the type who loves the heritage trail, then KL is just the place for you! Whether it be carefully curated collections in serene galleries or the living, breathing streets filled with old-timers and curious explorers, Kuala Lumpur is a rich chaotic mix of history grown and blended by its people. Witness the beautiful halls of the National Islamic Museum and the National Art Gallery, or immerse yourself in the alleys of Jalan Pudu, Brickfields or Petaling Street – you will not be disappointed! 

Kuala Lumpur is also home to some of the most illustrious shopping malls in Southeast Asia. Indulge and experience the shopping in Malaysia like no other! From premier malls offering popular luxury brands to home-grown Malaysian brands like Bukit Bintang, Pavilion and Starhill Gallery to the more accessible ones like Sungei Wang, Suria KLCC and Mid Valley Megamall, the size and offerings will surely tickle your fancy.
