Malaysia, the cultural melting pot of Southeast Asia, has long been renowned for its natural beauty.
But now man is catching up with nature – dreams of luxurious holidays amidst these marvels have now come fully into fruition. Here, lavish hotels lie on untouched islands and great cities rise out of the swathes of verdant rainforest. And of these, none is shining so bright as Kuala Lumpur – a city as breathtaking as the natural wonders surrounding it. The cultural and economic center of the country, Kuala Lumpur has become a hive of activity over the last two decades and is quickly emerging as an international metropolis in its own right. The city lies almost equidistant between Thailand, the Philippines and Singapore and draws these different cultural strains together. Add to this the city’s proud islamic heritage, shown throughout the Bangsar District by Neo Moorish architecture, and you have a truly diverse and dynamic city right at the heart of the Southeast Asian world.
