Exploring KualaLumpur :
Kuala Lumpur , or simply KL, is the capital of Malaysia. Literally meaning "muddy estuary" in Malay, Kuala Lumpur has grown from a small sleepy Chinese tin-mining village to a bustling metropolis of around 6.5 million (city-proper population of 1.8 million) in just 150 years. With some of the world's cheapest 5-star hotels, cheap and great shopping and even better food, increasing numbers of travellers are discovering this little gem of a city.
Despite having many attractions, Kuala Lumpur is one of those cities which is short on must-see attractions: the real joy lies in wandering randomly, seeing, shopping and eating your way through it.
Architecturally, every landmark that KL can think of is a copy of a famous one somewhere. The National Monument at lake Gardens is a take-off from the Iwo Jima Memorial in Washington (not to mention the flag itself is just a few strokes away to become an American flag). The Sultan Ahmad and the Railway Station were all cuts and pastes from the Taj Mahal and other Mughal buildings in India. There is even one building that exactly copies the concept of La Defence in Paris. Everything here is parctically so un-original, that the only outstanding piece of architecture is the Petronas Towers, a masterpiece by Renzo Piano. But forget about originality, KL is a liveable, orderly, and peaceful city that guarantees to relax your nerves and soothes your mind by doing simple activities such as breathing the city air, walking, or staring at the sights more than any other city in Asia, except for Tokyo, Seoul, and Singapore.
