Kuala Lumpur



Kuala Lumpur, the nationís capital city is a modern and fast moving city.  KL, as it is almost always called, with a population of 1.8 million leads  the nation's fast paced development in trade and commerce and is the pulse of the nation. The city's strategic location near the heart of SE Asia, along with excellent supporting infrastructure has made it a popular venue for international events, conventions, and exhibitions. 

It is also a cosmopolitan blend of races, cultures and religions. 

Discovering KL (as locals affectionately call it) you will see ultra-modern skyscrapers standing magnificently next to rows and rows of quaint old shop houses.

Money Changing

Foreign currency and travellers cheques may be changed in all commercial banks during banking hours. Licensed money changers at the airport, international hotels and within the city

 sometimes offer better rates than banks. Travellers Cheques are also accepted by hotels and major departmental stores but banks give the best rates.


Eating Out

Most major shopping centres have a number of restaurants specialising in Malay, Chinese, Indian or Western food located within their premises, for those in a hurry, there's always Mc Donald's or Kentucky Fried Chicken. Some of these complexes devote almost an entire floor to food stalls offering a mouth-watering array of local fast foods. With so many food outlets to choose from, the hassle comes only in 

actually deciding what to eat!

The City also has its special Tourist Police to assist tourists and attend to any complaints.
