In the heart of Malay Peninsula, there is an emerging city named Kuala Lumpur where the old and the new, the east and the west mingle. You will not only see the mingling of nature and culture, but also experience the collision of history and modernization. Small shops swarm the narrow Chinatown and Little India. There are some ethnic lines, such as Chinese, Indians and Malaysians. They cooperate together at workplace, but maintain their own cultural space in their spare time.
Kuala Lumpur is the capital city of Malaysia, located in the middle section of Malay Peninsula. The whole city is surrounded by mountains. Klang Valley and Gombak meet here. Kuala Lumpur is not only the largest city in Malaysia, but also the political, economic, cultural, industrial center and transportation hub of the country. It is simultaneously a famous cosmopolitan city and the youngest and fastest developing city among the capital cities in Southeast Asia.
There are various styles of modern buildings in Kuala Lumpur City, such as square, round, triangle, ladder-shaped, sword-shaped and drum-shaped. The most imposing one is the 88-storey-high Petronas Twin Towers. Inside the city, there are temples and churches dedicated to different religions of Malaysians, including Chinese, Indonesians and Europeans. The old and the modern co-exist and form diverse cultures and artistic styles.
