Malaysia’s alpha city

Kuala Lumpur is a relatively young city, built around a sleepy Chinese tin-mining village. It grew spectacularly, from rural-community to world-class metropolis in only 150 years. The city is packed with attractions waiting to be discovered. It’s hot, humid and crowded, but travelers flock here to enjoy the depth of Malaysian culture in its richness and variety. Kuala Lumpur is a city of opportunities, with a large palette of activities for the entire family – from sports to spas, nightclubs to family fun.
