A land of Diverse cultures, architecture & culinary traditions

Kuala Lumpur is a rich mélange of cultures, set amidst the striking contrast of yesterday and tomorrow. The iconic 88-story Petronas Towers are the pride of the city, but architectural variety runs rampant around Independence Square, lined by the Sultan Abdul Samad Building of Moorish design, the Tudor-style Cricket Club, the Railway Station in a mix of East and West, and St. Mary’s Cathedral, in early English gothic.

Because of its ethnic diversity, Malaysia offers a variety of cuisines, including an early version of Asian fusion: Peranakan or Nonya—the result of blending Chinese ingredients and wok cooking techniques with traditional Malay spices.
