We represent the city of Kuala Lumpur.
Also in this city of Kuala Lumpur is maintained autumn festival. This festival is celebrated on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese calendar and is actually an annual celebration for the capital of Malaysia. This festival is also called “Mooncake”, because the main business is baking cakes in all shapes and sizes that hand it out through crowds. This day is known for its beautiful lantern processions, beautifully decorated parks and general jolly.
Kuala Lumpur was founded by poor miners since 1857 when they established a settlement along the shores of two rivers, Gombak and Klang. The city developed rapidly and today is rightfully called the “Asian tiger” and KL by locals. It is a combination of efficient and business Singapore and the busy and colorful Bangkok. The relatively small city of 1.5 million inhabitants, Kuala Lumpur gives the impression of all but a small town. Everything there is modern, large, functional and automated. The cosmopolitan spirit of Kuala Lumpur will take your breath away. You will feel different races, languages, religions, kindness and spontaneity of the people. But if you have already gone to this destination, be prepared to taste the most diversified food in the world, which often has no translation in any foreign language.
Shopping in Kuala Lumpur is a major tourist attraction, besides the morning climbing to the top of the Petronas Twin Towers. With 451m highness that tower is until recently the highest skyscraper in the world, immortalized in several Hollywood action movies. In this city you also can see British colonial-era landmarks such as the Kuala Lumpur Railway Station and the Sultan Abdul Samad Building. In Kuala Lumpur everything is great, everything is beautifully and richly decorated. The only relatively constant side of Kuala Lumpur is climate. Daytime temperatures are consistently pleasant, evenings are cooler, but still warm. During the afternoon may surprise you short storms with rain, but because of that the evening are fresh and suitable for pleasant walks.
