Kuala Lumpur (KL) established in 1857 at the confluence of the Klang and Gombak Rivers, is one of Asia’s most dynamic cities. The city began as a mining settlement in the late 1800’s with the discovery of tin. Its impressive skyline includes the world’s tallest twin towers, the old Moorish styled railway station and numerous mosques, temples and churches.
Rapid infrastructural growth over time has not diminished KL’s garden city image. Beautifully landscaped parks and an abundance of greenery have been retained to provide the city’s green lungs. Kuala Lumpur is a city of contrasts.
