Old colonial buildings ranging from the British to the Moorish stand gleaming proud amidst the fast-changing ultra-modern skyline. Colourful Hindu temples, restored pre-war Chinese shophouses and grand mosques just minutes from each other remind you of a city unlike any other in the world.


The soul of this capital city is quintessentially Malaysian, but its appeal is undoubtedly International. It now boasts of a world class Philharmonic Orchestra and Hall, a National Theatre with state-of the art facilities, not to mention the countless local theatrical and dance groups fast gaining recognition and accolades from local residents as well as visitors. This cultural renaissance now changing the face of Kuala Lumpur is clearly evident in the galleries and art cafes sprouting up in the streets. Kuala Lumpur is set to become a major cultural centre in the region.


There is no lack of entertaiment in Kuala Lumpur today, from mega traditional theatrical productions, classical concerts featuring International artistes to trendy discos and creative theme cafes that open till late. The cuisine here is qqually varied and superb, whether it's fine dining at an International Restaurant or going local at the hawker stalls.


Sighseeing, shoping or just walking around you will meet people in tune with the rhythm of Kuala Lumpur at every turn- happy, friendly and upbeat.
