Kuala Lumpur is the capital city of Malaysia and is the most populous, with Greater Kuala Lumpur, also known as Klang Valley, being the fastest growing region in the country and a good starting point on Malaysia vacations.

Situated at the confluence of the Klang and Gombak rivers, Kuala Lumpur is the cultural, financial, and economic centre of Malaysia and has played host to many international sporting, political, and cultural events including the 1998 Commonwealth Games and the Formula One World Championship.

Founded in 1857 as a tin mining outpost, Kuala Lumpur started to prosper in 1896 when it was made capital of the Federated Malay States, and continued as a federal capital in 1957 when Malaysia obtained its new-found independence, remaining today as the economic and business centre of the country.

Home to various research centres, Kuala Lumpur also has a high concentration of educational institutions located within its boundaries, as well as health services.

With its service-driven economy, Kuala Lumpur plays an important role in Malaysia’s tourism industry, offering tourist destinations such as Merdeka Square, Petaling Street, the National Palace, Kuala Lumpur Tower, Central Market, and many more, including religious sites such as Jamek Mosque and Batu Caves, which is situated on a limestone hill and features various caves and Hindu cave temples.

Petronas Towers is Kuala Lumpur’s most famous landmark. The twin skyscrapers, which are connected by a skybridge, were once considered the tallest buildings in the world.

Although having grown into a bustling metropolis, Kuala Lumpur has managed to maintain its local character and culture, offering visitors on Malaysia tours a blend of superior amenities and Malay heritage.
