Interesting Facts on Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Updated on March 25, 2012

 There is one city in Malaysian that stand out above all the rest that city is Kuala Lumpur. It is a testament to the Malaysian inventiveness of modern times. It also contains some of the most historical documentation, monuments and testimonies to the Malaysian people. This city holds the heart and soul of this tropical and beautiful country so when you come to visit make sure Kuala Lumpur is your first stop.


When you touch down in this historic city there are many places you will come across to the history you are exploring. Starting with, the British colonial buildings in Dataran Merdeka district that line the streets. Then as you travel further you will see the Midnight lamps of the night markets of Petaling street but don’t just look up but look down they still have the originally streets that were built along this road over 300 years ago. Then as you continue to explore you will be hard pressed to not notice the magnificent skyscrapers that have been built into world record breaking heights. We cannot not forget, the internationally famous artists that have painted murals of solidarity to the Malaysian people in this wonderful city.

This city is ripe with more diversity then most major cities around the world and as a tourist this will most likely be your first insight as you walk the stone parkways. Within this small but very large city you will see many different ethnicities all seamlessly working together without prejudice or resentment just because you are of a different race. This makes Kuala Lumpur very unique place to visit among the major cities of the world.

Of course one cannot forget some of the finer things in Kuala Lumpur. Dining is always a special treat we all love to eat. Here in Kuala Lumpur you will find amazing restaurants that cater to every flavor from around the world. But, if your visiting a foreign country do not go for the Chinese, I suggest you try some of the local delicacies first. This will just heighten your sensations for this wonderful country and its people. Then after a nice lunch or dinner you can head down to the market for some local shopping. They have everything you would need from local cheeses to the next pair of Gym socks for very cheap so shop till you drop and enjoy the festivities of the local market. Of course if you’re into more high end fashions they do have a number of very large malls you can ride to as well there you will find great deals on the latest designer wares for much cheaper than in the U.S.

Then on your site seeing tour of Kuala Lumpur don’t forget the monument of national Malaysian pride the Petronas twin towers. This was prior to Dubai creating the spiral building in 2010 the tallest building on earth reaching approximately 1500 feet in the air with roughly 90 floors. This was originally supposed to be just another skyscraper but the Malaysian architect had bigger dreams and completed which would stand to be the tallest building in the world in less than 4 years. It has since become national symbol of Malaysia and its inventiveness and ingenuity of its people.

Arrive to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and locate truth inside country's tourism slogan, "Malaysia, Absolutely Asia."

    Welcome to Kuala Lumpur or KL in short. It is a place with the most diversed of almost everything, from people to food and buildings, at the same time. Glad you enjoyed your stay, however, there are many more things to visit other than KL. Like Malacca (about 1 1/2 hours drive from KL), you will see semblance of the Portuguese, etc. etc. Nice description from a Tourist. Thanks!
