Kuala Lumpur (KL) is like a melting pot of all the wonderful cultures that make up Asia. As the capital of Malaysia, it epitomises the nation's slogan "simply Asia". From art to history to food, one's senses are embraced by the city's dynamic surroundings. This is a majestic city that was founded in 1857 and now in the 21st Century it brings together the past, the present and the future. There is so much to see in Kuala Lumpur - Chinatown with charming old buildings and makeshift shops, then there's Little India while the Jamek Mosque which celebrates its centenary in 2014, is one of the oldest mosques in the city. These historical landmarks blend in superbly with the modern day ones. The KL Tower is one of the world's tallest concrete structures which functions as a telecommunication tower. The skyline of Kuala Lumpur is dominated by a structure that is famous the world over - the tallest Twin Towers in the world known as the Petronas Towers. If it’s food that's your thing then KL is the place to be because this place is a feast for the senses and will tempt any taste bud from the many hawker centres through to some of the finest restaurants. Another activity that you could definitely look forward to is shopping in KL.
