Sam's Exotic Travels to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
I was staying in Shah Alam, Selangor for a seminar, which kept my partner and I pretty busy. We did a chance on the last night to drive into Kuala Lumpur and eat a late dinner. Of course, the highlight was the Petronas Twin Towers, viewed on a foggy night.
Want to know more about the city - here's what wikipedia.org has to say:
Kuala Lumpur is the federal capital and most populous city in Malaysia. The city covers an area of 243 km2 (94 sq mi) and has an estimated population of 1.6 million as of 2012. It is among the fastest growing metropolitan regions in the country, in terms of population and economy.
Kuala Lumpur is the seat of the Parliament of Malaysia. The city was once home to the executive and judicial branches of the federal government, but they were moved to Putrajaya in early 1999. Rated as an alpha world city, Kuala Lumpur is the cultural, financial and economic centre of Malaysia due to its position as the capital as well as being a key city.
Since the 1990s, the city has played host to many international sporting, political and cultural events including the 1998 Commonwealth Games and the Formula One Grand Prix. In addition, Kuala Lumpur is home to the tallest twin buildings in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers, which have become an iconic symbol of Malaysia's futuristic developments.
