Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia's capital city is a fusion of different cultures, which is today experiencing a renaissance with many new buildings, restaurants, excellent shopping and vibrant streets. To a food lover, Kuala Lumpur is a dream destination, whether you're looking to taste the local Malay or Nonya grub or feast on some of some fine Chinese, Indian and European food, Kuala Lumpur offers it all in abundance and in different guises. You can mingle with the locals at a roadside stall or dine in one of the cities ‘super-chic' restaurants. Spend time exploring Kuala Lumpur's Golden Triangle region, home to the iconic Petronas Twin Towers, soak up the atmosphere in the bustling streets of Chinatown and Little India and visit the colonial district, where the influence of British colonial rule is very evident. Kuala Lumpur (or ‘KL' to locals) has come a long way in the last 150 years. What began life as a small tin mining town has now become one of Asia's most important cities.
