Kuala Lumpur – KL to its friends – is more than just a capital city: it is a monument to Malaysian ingenuity and determination. From humble beginnings as a tin-mining shanty town, KL has evolved into a 21st-century metropolis, dominated by the tallest skyscrapers in Southeast Asia and flush with the proceeds of international trade and commerce... KL is Malaysia's buzzing capital, where the architecture varies from the elegant colonial buildings of Merdeka Square to the modern skyscrapers, with a constant infusion of Asian style.
