Kuala Lumpur (or “KL”) is the capital and the largest city in Malaysia, located on the west coast of the peninsular part of the country.

KL is a cultural melting pot, with Malay, Chinese, and Indian influences all strong, and ethnic enclaves remain today where amazing low-priced food can be found.

Outside the city, within an hour’s reach, are a variety of forest and wildlife reserves.

Overall Atmosphere: Cultural
A Cultural Atmosphere includes both the historic (eg, landmark town centers) and the contemporary (music, nightlife, etc).

Cultural Interests tend to be:
(a) indoors-oriented, and therefore not as linked to weather conditions for enjoyment
(b) relatively physically accessible, while also not being physically demanding.
Featuring mainly indoors-oriented historical or contemporary attractions.
