Welcome to Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur - often abbreviated as K.L. is the capital and largest city of Malaysia. The city proper, making up an area of 244 km (94 sq mi), has an estimated population of 1.6 million in 2006. It is the fastest growing metropolitan region in the country, in terms of population as well as economy. Kuala Lumpur is the seat of the Parliament of Malaysia. The city was once home to the executive and judicial branches of the federal government, but they have since moved to Putrajaya starting in 1999. Some sections of the judiciary remain in the capital.


Malaysia Information

Welcome to Malaysia
Malaysia is a country of contrasts, bathed in the warm tropical sun,  several  well known historic cities, a unique cultural mix, a string of cool hill resorts, the world’s oldest rainforest—and Southeast Asia’s highest mountain. Multiculturalism has not only made Malaysia a gastronomical paradise, it has also made Malaysia home to hundreds of colourful festivals. It's no wonder that we love celebrating and socialising. Malaysians are very laid back, warm and friendly.
