Kuala Lumpur (or “KL,” as the locals say) is the capital of Malaysia. The days when it all began as mud flats and tin deposits (in the 1850's) seem unimaginable compared to it's current state. You will find many traces of history in the beautifully preserved architecture. Today, Kuala Lumpur is the International Garden City of Lights where shoppers are spoiled for choice. Gastronomy connoisseurs broaden their palates, party animals find sanctuaries, and nature-lovers are wowed.
