Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia. Since the end of the 20th century, it has gradually developed into a highly modern and international city. There are green gardens everywhere, which earns it the reputation of a "garden city". Kuala Lumpur is a fusion of three ethnic groups, Malays, Chinese, and Indians, demonstrating a unique and romantic style.
Exploring Kuala Lumpur
Stylish skyscrapers penetrate the skyline of Kuala Lumpur. The towering Petronas Twin Towers are the most recognizable landmarks, and the surrounding high-rise buildings symbolize the modernization and prosperity of the city. When you climb to the observatory, the view of the city would be breathtaking. Kuala Lumpur Tower stands on the top of Weld Hill, which incorporates Islamic elements and Eastern and Western architectural techniques, making it another famous symbol of the city.
The coexistence and co-prosperity of multiple cultures have offered a strong religious essence to Kuala Lumpur. Batu Caves is a sacred spot for Hinduism temples, where you can climb up the 272 colored stairs and enter the cave to pilgrimage to the ornately decorated shrines, statues, and paintings. The Putra Mosque has three-quarters of the building built on Putrajaya Lake, whose pink dome made of granite reflected on the lake surface would create a picture like a holy lotus growing on the water with purity and dream-like essence. Temples such as Guandi Temple and Sin Sze Si Ya Temple in downtown are always visited by countless believers and are the hubs of religions and spiritual sustenance for local Chinese peoples.
The diversity of foods would be another feature under the interweaving of multiculturalism. Jalan Alor is the most popular snack street for tourists, where dozens of restaurants and hundreds of vendors selling all kinds of food products can be found. Nasi Lemak, Satay, Grilled Chicken Wings, and Bak Kut Teh are all must-try authentic delicacies; Petaling Street is another characteristic neighborhood, where many shops within renovated old houses provide authentic delicacies and souvenirs which allow you to enjoy the pleasure of bargaining.
