Destination KUALA LUMPURhe capital of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur is a thriving city of soaring high-rises, bustling urban landscapes, and friendly locals. The site of rapid development over the last 100 years, Kuala Lumpur has an interesting melange of architecture: elegant colonial styles fused with modern steel and glass. Despite all this change, the city has not lost its colour and cultural diversity, and Kuala Lumpur is alive with vibrant night markets and street vendors. Kuala Lumpur means "muddy confluence", as it was formed on the confluence of the Klang and Gombak rivers. This name serves as an appropriate metaphor even now, as the city has an enticing mix of cross-cultural influences, traditions and cuisine, filled as it is with communities of Chinese, Malays, Indians, Thais, and Indonesians. The city therefore radiates a whirlwind vitality, and brims over with energy and excitement. In other words, Kuala Lumpur does not disappoint, and provides something for everyone, whatever their mood.
