Kuala Lumpur, or “KL” to locals, is a city that was literally hacked out of the jungle just 150 years ago. Crazy, right? Even though some of the tallest skyscrapers in the world are here, many streets are still shaded under a canopy of banyan trees.
The city is a mix of the past and the present. Colourful mosques and temples, street markets and historical monuments jumble among mega-malls, trendy nightclubs and contemporary art and design. Sample the flavours of a hodgepodge of cultures, or enjoy a cup of java and a pastry at an internet café, but whatever you do, don’t forget to bring your taste buds and monogrammed chopsticks! We know you have them.
