GENERAL INFORMATION

ABOUT MALAYSIA

Malaysia is a bustling melting pot of races and religions, where Malays, Indians, Chinese and many other ethnic groups live together in peace and harmony. Multiculturalism has not only made Malaysia a gastronomical paradise, it has also made Malaysia home to hundreds of colourful festivals. 

Kuala Lumpur, which is the capital of Malaysia, functions as the centre of Malaysia’s political, commercial and social life. It is a city of delightful contracts – a combination of modern cosmopolitan, sophistication, lingering old world charm; a juxtaposition of gracious colonial edifices, pre-war shop houses and gleaming copper domed roofs against a backdrop of towering skyscrapers like the PETRONAS Twin Towers. Experience the multi-faceted fascinations of Malaysia – right in Kuala Lumpur.
