Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Remarkable cultural diversity
Kuala Lumpur is a very cyber Asian city. Where the past is still present, with huge British colonial buildings and hundred years old the Petaling Street night market is still on. Flowing together today with shiny and modern office buildings, shining with their towers. That all and more symbolize Malaysia's unhesitating leap into the future.
Looking at Kuala Lumpure from visitors point of view, it's a remarkable cultural diversity, Ethnic Malays, Chinese prospectors, Indian migrants and British colonials all helped carve the city out of the virgin jungle, and each of those groups have left something mark-able in their culture. They have lost a lot from the past years, but it doesn't seem like to been gained at the loss of ancient cultural traditions, but in many ways KL marks the continuation rather than the loss of Malaysia's rich past.
The Food is another great thing about Lumpur and Malaysia in general, its cuisine is exotic with an exciting range of flavors for all tastes, also culinary styles offering the uninitiated an endless gastronomic adventure. It's more spicy and rich arising from the mix of hard spices like “rempah” and coconut milk, giving the food other taste. Malay cuisine varies from region to region, from more sweet to more sour. There are three main groups - Malay, Chinese and Indian with each having its own distinct style of cooking. However for those ones who are interested in dining out, Kuala Lumpure has the best unique experience!
Eating, shopping and nightlife are undeniable highlights of any visit to Klbut there is so much more to do even out of the city, for something different appart of the shopping and huge tower pictures, there are numerous parks and monuments dotted around KL that make easy day trips for a break from the hustle and bustle.
