City of Lights – Kuala Lumpur


What a wonderful day it has been here in this Malaysian city, Kuala Lumpur “KL” the capital and largest city of Malaysia. 
Founded more than 200 years ago by tin miners in 1857, it is the commercial and industrial hub of the country. Kuala Lumpur is a sprawling city and its residential suburbs seem to go on forever. Nestle within the fertile confluence of the Klang and Gombak rivers along the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. It is approximately 35 km from the coast and sits at the centre of the Peninsula's extensive and modern transportation network. Kuala Lumpur has transformed into a modern international city where aspects of the olden days are still well preserved and cherish, possessing a population of over one and a half million people drawn from all of Malaysia's many ethnic groups. Residents of the city are known as KLites.
KLitesKLites are people who originate from or live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Another less-often used term is Kuala Lumpurian or Lumpurian....

I’m now almost done with my packing, and am sitting in our hotel room waiting, with the Petronas Towers entirely viewable from our hotel room. This will be one of the many souvenirs I shall take with me of this wonderful day adventure.

We all know that the Petronas Twin Towers are beyond marvellous (also known as the Petronas Towers or Twin Towers). They were the world's tallest buildings from 1998 until 2004 with a height of 1,483 ft (452 meters). With a limited time we’ve didn’t take the long hours queuing up to the Petronas Tower skybridge observatory.

KL offers every visitor a unique holiday experience. (All photos are courtesy of Dony.)
