Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia, with a multicultural population, entertainment, culture, nature, shopping and fantastic cuisine. With a population of two million, Kuala Lumpur is the gateway into Malaysia, and a melting pot that showcases the city’s contrasts and diversity.
Being a relatively young city, most of Kuala Lumpur's architecture is a blend of colonial influences from 19th-20th centuries, Asian traditions, Malay Islamic inspirations, and modern skyscrapers boasting record heights. This is what makes KL distinctive - the city’s identity was built on its history, people, culture and heritage.
KL is one of Asia’s major business centers. Food and shopping are arguably the most important aspects of daily life in Kuala Lumpur. A wide range of food and shopping options will excite and surprise you, from glitzy shopping malls and fine dining to markets and street food. KL is a true gem of Southeast Asia.
