Larry Lam's Guide Notes

KL (as affectionately called by the locals) is a city of delightful contrasts - a combination of modern cosmopolitan, sophistication and lingering old world charm with its gracious colonial edifices, quaint old shophouses, minarets and domes against a backdrop of towering, ultra modern skyscrapers. Here, vivid traces of history continue to influence and inspire the country. Narrow streets of quaint old shophouses open out to wide open tree-lined avenues. The favourable climate accounts for the lush greenery and profusion of tropical blooms in a riot of colours - a truly fitting background for its happy mix of multi-racial populace of Malays, Chinese, Indians and other races. The end result is a unique blend of age-old customs and traditions; colourful festivals, songs and dances and a rich variety of foods to tempt the palate.
Enjoy the multi-faceted fascinations of Kuala Lumpur.
