A blend of affluent glamour and cultural diversity

Literally translated, Kuala Lumpur means “muddy river confluence”, so it’s clearly come an incredibly long way since it first got its name.

Indeed, what was once a tiny tin-mining village is now a contemporary, dynamic, high-rise city that’s soaring in every sense. The awe-inspiring Petronas Towers dominate the ultra-modern skyline here, but keep your feet on the ground and there’s so much more to discover – including fantastic shopping and sublime Malaysian food. Just stroll the streets and you’ll eat like a king, with street vendors and markets serving up incredible offerings at virtually every turn.
