Each ethnic group has its own language and cultural practices which you can best appreciate through a packed calendar of festivals and a delicious variety of cuisines.

The capital of Malaysia has come a long way from being a sleepy little Chinese mining village. Now a buzzing metropolis with the best in glitzy shopping, vibrant nightlife, world class restaurants and a fantastic skyline, Kuala Lumpur is prominent on the tourist map. The city is divided into many districts, given its sheer size. The Golden Triangle, to the north east of the city, is where the tourists congregate and is the glitzy centre with malls, posh hotels and restaurants. Bangsar and Midvalley house popular clubs and some good malls, while Brickfields is KL’s Little India. KL is a shopper’s paradise, with malls around every bend. For the culturally inclined and the spiritual, there are numerous temples and museums depicting much of Malaysia’s history and culture.

Weather

Year-round travel is possible. Rain falls fairly evenly throughout the year and the difference between the main October to April rainy season and the rest of the year is not that marked. The exception is the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia, which receives heavy rain from November to mid-February. During these months many east-coast resorts close and boat services dwindle or stop altogether. Travel along the west coast is not affected. The states of Sabah and Sarawak receive high rainfall throughout the year, but it is heaviest from October to March.
