Kuala Lumpur  The Capital City


Crest of the Kuala Lumpur City Hall
Kuala Lumpur, the nation’s capital city is a modern and fast moving city.  KL, as it is almost always called, leads the nation's fast paced development in trade and commerce and is the pulse of the nation. The city's strategic location near the heart of SE Asia, along with excellent supporting infrastructure has made it a popular venue for international events, conventions, and exhibitions. 


Kuala Lumpur is located inland, at the confluence of Klang and Gombak River. Mostly surrounded by forests and hills, it is the only city in the world to have a million-year-old primary forest within the heart of the city.

KL City Skyline

Kuala Lumpur is one of the three Malaysian Federal Territories. It is an enclave within the state of Selangor, on the central west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. It is also a cosmopolitan blend of races, cultures and religions. Discovering KL (as locals affectionately call it) you will see ultra-modern skyscrapers standing magnificently next to rows and rows of quaint old shop houses.
