Malaysia has a history steeped in the British Empire and did not achieve independence until 1957. It is a multi ethnic and multi cultural country democracy based on the Westminster parliamentary model and with its legal system based on English common law and administration stemming from its British origins.
It is one of the Asian Tiger economies demonstrating strong economic growth over many years with its traditional wealth based on natural resources, now extending rapidly in sectors such as science and tourism.
As the capital of Malaysia. Kuala Lumpur ( or KL as it is commonly known) is steeped in history with grand colonial architecture and extensive greenery sitting amongst striking modern architecture and six-lane highways. It is famous the world over for the iconic Petronas Twin Towers and is a shopping paradise with some of Southeast Asia’s largest shopping malls, housing the world’s top brands, sitting alongside vibrant street markets.
While like most Asian cities, there is plenty of traffic, wondrous experiences abound around almost every corner, with a mix of temples side-by-side with street markets and towering high rises. On top of this, there is the food. It is not by accident that KL is a ‘foodies paradise’, with thousands of restaurants serving every imaginable type of food to suit every budget.
