Discover Kuala Lumpur

And that heart is none other than Kuala Lumpur (“KL”), the national capital city of Malaysia.

Apart from being the largest city in the country, the beauty of KL lies in its footing as both central business district and nostalgic historical sites. Whether it is the buzzing cityscapes, captivating iconic skyscrapers or British colonial facades, get ready to explore old trails of Chinatown-like shophouses intertwined with golden memoirs from its glorious days. From vibrant and colourful religious sites of multi-ethnic communities, discovery of flavorful food from family heirloom recipes, to the luscious greeneries, KL has it all.
