Mosques, skyscrapers, giant towers, a TV tower, a huge number of people from all over the world...

 

 

Kuala Lumpur is something incredible, what is not to be found in this city! The government and the prime minister moved out to nearby Putrajaya and the administrative center of Malaysia is now located there. But it hasn't affected tourist interest in Kuala Lumpur, especially as the city is definitely worth sticking around for. No doubt, its main visitors are tourists in transit, already wearing flip-flops and dreaming of paradise beaches, but those who come and for a week or two, there is something to do. The architectural and historical sights of Kuala Lumpur, green parks, budget shopping, and panoramic views from skyscrapers are just a partial list of the local tourist attractions. Note: in order to capture a bird's-eye view of the city on your own camera, sometimes you have to sign up in a queue as much as three days in advance.

Kuala Lumpur (or simply "K-El" as the locals call it), the capital of Malaysia, is located in the southwest of the Malacca Peninsula, in a low valley at the confluence of the Klang and Gombak Rivers. You should start your walk in the center of the city at the oldest mosque, the Masjid Jamek, which is located at the junction of the two rivers, the place of Kuala Lumpur's origin.
