Why you should visit Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur?

Malaysia is a country where multinational communities create colorful culture and history, this great atmosphere invites you to experience unforgettable travel. Malay, Indian, Chinese, and western styles of the city synthesis create wonderful unity that presents a perfect reflection of Malaysia. The official language of Malaysia is Malay and their currency is Malaysian Ringgit. The capital and largest city of Malaysia is Kuala Lumpur. KL is the commercial, cultural, political, and transportation center of Malaysia. Kuala Lumpur is a famous city of skyscrapers where the skyline is marked with famous minarets style of Petronas Towers. Walking through the streets of KL, with a shaded canopy of Banyan trees, where colonial architecture, cheerful people, and a lot of attractions invite you to once in a lifetime adventure. In 2016 I’ve visited this beautiful country and city. Within this multicultural city, you will find historical monuments, mega-plazas, lush green parks, steel-clad skyscrapers, bustling street shops including a nonstop lifestyle.

Batu Caves

Kuala Lumpur is a mix of modern and traditional architecture; buildings such as glass and concrete skyscrapers, elegant mosques, Chinese shops, and Indian Temples. The architecture and lifestyle of KL have been influenced by Western, Middle Eastern, and East Asian culture.

Malaysian Dish

Popular Malay cuisine shows the generous usage of spices including coconut milk, however, it also uses spices and cooking methods from China and as well as seasonings curry sheets, and flavored rice recipes of India. My favorite dishes were Hokkien prawn mee and Nasi Lemak. Due to its tropical climate, it rains throughout the year almost, during December-February and May-August much drier than other times of the year and the sky is much clear, so you might consider your visit during those times. The city is quite clean, well organized, safe and people are polite.

Where to visit:

  • Petronas Twin Towers
  • Batu Caves
  • KLCC Park
  • Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia
  • Thean Hou Temple
  • Petaling Street (China Town)
  • Sultan Abdul Samad Building
  • Jamek Mosque
  • Sri Maha Mariamman Temple
  • Istana Negara

It was my time to leave this beautiful city, I took a cab from downtown to KL international airport. The driver was an Indian gentleman who is name was Mr. Ramish around seventy years old, as we began to talk, there were many topics; politics, economy, social life, and history. I learned that he was practicing Hindu teachings that he wasn’t eating meat, meditating regularly to self-discipline himself to become a better person, he said his ultimate goal was to reach God where he was avoiding the corruption of the modern world’s senseless lifestyle. I told him we have the same goals to live life as a better person for the sake of God or whatever we believe in. When you experience people as a traveler, community makes sense for you to understand the places that you visit, what I’ve seen in Malaysia, people are properly educated and care about society. What I’ve experienced in KL during my visit, showed me that ”Malaysia is truly Asia” absolutely true by all means. Until then stay safe and keep exploring the world.
