Kuala Lumpur is a massive city buzzing with Indian, Chinese and Malay inhabitants. Aside from the skyscrapers and plethora of malls you’ll see temples, mosques and churches scattered throughout the city. The LRT and KL Monorail provide efficient and comfortable transport but wear comfortable shoes as you can end up walking a great deal. There are caves to explore, mouth-watering cuisine to stuff yourself with and of course, lots of things to buy. Here’s a glimpse of colourful Kuala Lumpur…
