Old Kuala Lumpur in between flights
Kuala Lumpur or fondly known as KL, expanded from the wealth of tin is the capital city of Malaysia. It has in a short span of 160 years, transformed from dense jungle teaming with wild tropical animals to boast the world tallest twin tower while retaining it's old world colonial charm.
Visit in a short span of a few hours (ideally 4 hours) the landing site of the 87 tin prospector who gave KL it's foundation. Walk along the river shaded by rain trees, witness the puzzling colonial British buildings designed in a picturesque Mughal & Mohammedan style while listening to the history and stories of a country's struggle to attain it's independence. Experience what was Kuala Lumpur like in the late 1800s via photographs, see first hand what KL is like today and project yourself into the future landscape of KL via miniature models.
Culturally, explore the rich diversity of a strangely oriented Chinese temple, a grand Hindu temple, the wet alley market & Chinatown.
