Kuala Lumpur – or known as ‘KL’ to its friends – is more than just a capital city: it is a monument to Malaysian ingenuity and determination. From humble beginnings as a tin-mining shanty town, KL has evolved into a 21st-century metropolis, dominated by the tallest skyscrapers in Southeast Asia.
With a height of 1,453 feet, one of the world's tallest buildings rises above the skyline of Kuala Lumpur. They are called the Petronas Towers, and, inevitably, they have become the symbols for the astounding growth that has taken place in Malaysia over the last two decades.
Boasting some of Southeast Asia’s largest shopping malls and a colourful jumble of street markets, the city is a retail paradise. Unlike many Asian cities, KL has retained a majority of its historical buildings and features many tranquil spots within the city centre itself including the lush landscapes of Lake Gardens and the greenery of Tasik Titiwangsa. The city’s landscape is a blend of modernity and traditional charm, with market stalls alongside skyscrapers and sophisticated buildings.
