Kuala Lumpar the Centre of the Federal Government

Aug 18, 2007
Kuala Lumpur is situated midway along the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia, at the confluence of the Gombek and Klang rivers. It is approximately 35 km from the coast and sits at the centre of the Peninsula's. It is easily the largest city in the nation. Kuala Lumpur, or KL as it is commonly known, is the focal point of new Malaysia. The city had its share of set backs before it evolved into one of Asias richest capitals.

KL is at heart an earthy place, where people sit around the kedai kopi coffee house and talk about religion food and business. It is also the centre of the federal government. It is one of the most fascinating cities in South east Asia.

The patriotic locals are out in force on 31 August, the anniversary of Malaysian independence, KL's proudest moment as the Union Jack slid down and the new Malaysian flag was hoisted above the capital.

The city is known for having the best night life in Malaysia. The people of the city love going out at night and tourists who enjoy having fun after dark should follow their lead. The city is full of pubs night clubs and discos that stay open very late. The night areas include the Golden Triangle Area of Jalan P. Ramlee, Jalan Sultan Ismail, Jalan Bukit Bintang, Bangsar Baru and Sri Hartamas, outside of the city's centre.

The night markets scattered around the city are crowded and atmospheric, buzzing with the sounds of haggling and portable stereos pouring out Asian pop. When it is time to move on to indoor entertainment, the Golden Triangle and Bangsar areas are the places to head for dancing and bars.

The main attraction of china town is "Petaling Street", which is the one of the most favourite tourist destination. There you can get the duplicate and copies of the top brands of the world, and the best thing is that the duplicate and copy is so true like a original brand. You will get the Top Most brands like, Christian Dior Gucci Esprit and D&G.

A view from the Sky Bridge at the 41st floor of Petronas Tower is not to be missed when you are in this city. There are 82 floors in the Towers and viewing is allowed only from the 41st floor. There are actually 2 levels in the Sky Bridge. However the 2nd level is used to commute between the 2 towers and is open only to authorised personnel.
