The Transformed Malaysian Capital

Literally translated, Kuala Lumpur means muddy river confluence, so it’s clearly come an incredibly long way since it first got its name.

Indeed, what was once a tiny tin-mining village is now a contemporary, dynamic, high-rise city that’s soaring in every sense. The awe-inspiring Petronas Towers dominate the ultra-modern skyline here, but keep your feet on the ground and there’s so much more to discover – including fantastic shopping and sublime Malaysian food. Just stroll the streets and you’ll eat like a king, with street vendors and markets serving up incredible offerings at virtually every turn.
