Kuala Lumpar is considered to be the primary travel hub within Malaysia. An intriguing city which combines the old with the new, and displays a multitude of underlying influences including the Hindu, Muslim and Christian religions. In many ways Kuala Lumpar is an intriguing fusion of eastern and western culture, a quick jaunt along a typical street shows traditional Islamic dress alongside well known western designer labels. Kuala Lumpar makes a great choice of stop over location, with much to offer the short term visitors such as the Jamek Mosque, originally the central focal point of the Islamic faith.
A fun thing to do is grab a long, cool drink and watch the waterworks and light display at the base every evening at dusk. The City Centre or KLCC in the vicinity is a superb shopping venue for everything from shoes to designer wear. Of course, KL being a veritable shopper's paradise, every mall would seem better and bigger than the last. But having said that, there's something to be said for this particular location where good food, relaxation, and great views come together to complete the experience.
