A land of Diverse cultures, architecture & culinary traditions

Kuala Lumpur—or simply KL to the locals—is relatively young as cities go. But as they say, age is just a number, and what KL may lack in longstanding history, it more than makes up for in panache and progress. As you explore the bustling streets, you’ll notice an eclectic mixture of architecture—the Sultan Abdul Samad Building of Moorish design, the Tudor-style Cricket Club, the Railway station that’s a perfect balance of East meets West, and the early English gothic-style St. Mary’s Cathedral (just to name a few). Not to mention the most iconic building of all, the 88-story Petronas Towers; the pride of the city and the ultimate symbol of KL’s futuristic development.

The two main pastimes in Kuala Lumpur are shopping and eating—both of which are taken very seriously. There are more than 66 shopping malls in KL, not to mention countless shops, market places, and kiosks to explore. From high fashion to low-cost finds, there’s something for every taste and budget. And once you’ve given your wallet a proper workout, refuel at some of the city’s famous kedai kopi shops. These clusters of stalls featuring a variety of delicious dishes are a refreshing take on the traditional idea of a food court.

With a rich history dating back to the 1880s as a wet market, Kuala Lumpur’s Central Market has been revamped and revived. Today it is a major shopping destination while still preserving its role as a showcase for Malaysia’s arts, culture, and heritage.
