About Malaysia & Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia offers an eclectic mix of cultures, wonders and attractions. Home to centuries of rich cultural history spanning multiple nationalities and religions, the country is a melting pot of various races. Malaysia is truly a country that epitomises Asia.

Such diversity is also extended to the landscape. Feel the rhythm of vivacious cities and serene countryside. Marvel at centuries-old rainforests and caves, idyllic beaches and colourful reefs. Savour mouth-watering culinary specialties, from spicy to sweet to exotic. Listen to the delights of shoppers over incredible bargains at quaint night markets or world-class malls. Bask in the fragrance of stunning flora and pure, invigorating air. And enjoy the warm hospitality of the friendly and engaging Malaysians.

At the same time, Malaysia combines all of those with the best of East Asian economic development. The country has fully embraced the technological age with heavy investment in modern infrastructure. Malaysia boasts two of the world's tallest skyscrapers and a huge "cyber" centre for computer businesses. Its transport network system is amongst the best in the region. This is a country where the old and the new sit side by side, where ancient traditions blend nicely with the thoroughly modern settings of the urban landscape.

Further information on the country can also be obtained from the Malaysian government's official website, and Tourism Malaysia official website.

Discover Kuala Lumpur

Enjoying direct air links from almost every major city from all corners of the globe, Kuala Lumpur is a grand gateway to Malaysia's fascinating destinations. Just as the ancient Malay empire of the past, Kuala Lumpur's commercial centre is a grand meeting place for merchants and travelers from all over the world.

Kuala Lumpur brings together Malaysia's past and present, as characterised by the sight of the evocative British colonial buildings in the midst of the city's bustling streets and its shining, modern office towers. One of Southeast Asia's most impressive and energetic capitals, the city has grown over the course of the last century from a sleepy tin mining colony to a glittering global cosmopolitan. The Malaysian metropolis has weathered the turn-of-the-millennium Asian economic crises and continues to develop, optimism symbolised by the iconic thrust of the ultra-tall PETRONAS Twin Towers.

Home to some of Southeast Asia's biggest and and most prestigious shopping malls, Kuala Lumpur is a popular shopping destination for both locals and international visitors. Kuala Lumpur is a city full of wonderful sights, lively neighbourhoods, magnificent architecture and rich culture.
