While eminently modern KL still retains plenty of character as old colonial buildings stand out proudly in the center of town,.
Chinatown , Kg Baru ( Malay Kampong ) & Little India with their street vendors and night markets in the heart of the city is as vibrant as any dynamic city anywhere.

Across the national mosque is the historic KL train station, and further west is KL’s 'green' belt, where one can find the Lake Gardens, National Museum and Monument and the Malaysian Parliament.
KL is also gaining a long overdue recognition as an international gastronmical centre with its flavorful Malay , Chinese and Induian cuisines.
