A little more about Kuala Lumpar
A modern city blended with a proud past. A melting pot of Malay, Chinese and Indian communities come together to make up the diversity of the city.
Inland, just five hours by car from KL, is the National park of Taman Negara, a huge area spanning three states and home to some of the world’s oldest rainforests. Reached by the river on traditional longboats this is a botanist’s paradise with most plants endemic to the region.
To the south of the capital is the small city of Melaka which can be visited in a day and has a fascinating old town full of Portuguese, Dutch, Islamic and Chinese buildings as well as some interesting museums.
