 Petronas Towers

Kuala Lumpur is a federal territory consisting of the city of Kuala Lumpur and the suburbs like Kepong, Bukit Bintang, Batu, etc. The city of Kuala Lumpur used to be the seat of the government until 1999 when almost all the executive offices were moved to nearby Putrajaya, which is now widely considered as part of “greater” Kuala Lumpur. Kuala Lumpur is the largest and fastest growing Malaysian region in terms of infrastructure, economy, and population. It is located in the central west coast of mainland (Peninsular) Malaysia and connected to the world by Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), one of the busiest airports in Southeast Asia. The population of the city is mostly divided into Malays, Indians, Chinese, and other nationalities and therefore the city has influence of all and particularly these three main cultures.

Kuala Lumpur Sentral is the heart of Kuala Lumpur. It's connected to KLIA airport and to all other important regions of the city by rapid rail, rapid KL, KLIA Ekspress, and Komuter trains. KLCC is the Kuala Lumpur city center and within walking distance to almost all important shopping malls, restaurants, and tourist spots. Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) is the state of the art bus terminal connected to all over Malaysia by trains and buses, both inter and intra city.

Most interesting and must to visit place in Kuala Lumpur is no doubt the Petronas twin towers. Built in 1998, these towers were the tallest buildings in the world until 2004. Jalan Petalang is the famous street with almost everything being sold, mostly by Chinese at the cheapest price compared to rest of the city. Other famous places to visit are Kuala Lumpur (KL) tower, Jamek mosque, China town, Little India, Kuan Yin temple, Merdeka square, Aquaria KLCC, Masjid Negara, National Stadium of Malaysia, KL city park, Guandi temple, KL bird park, St. John’s Cathedral, and Sri Mahamariamman Temple. Batu Caves in the north of the city is an interesting place to witness the gods and religious practices of Hinduism.

Being one of the famous and most friendly tourist spots in the world, Malaysia in general and Kuala Lumpur in particular is a heaven for tourists and travelers. From world class hotels to low cost backpack hostels, everything is abundant. It is not only quite easy to find a hostel in Kuala Lumpur either online or in the streets of Kuala Lumpur, it is also quite cheaper to live in these hostels. Public and government both are tourist friendly and a tourist is always greeted with a smile. That’s what makes Kuala Lumpur, or generally speaking Malaysia, a place worth visiting.
