Kuala Lumpur has quietly become one Malaysia’s most popular and accommodating tourist locations. Once a sleepy Chinese tin-mining village, Kuala Lumpur, which literally means “muddy estuary,” has developed into a multi-million resident modern metropolis. Here, some of the cheapest five-star hotels in the world can be found, but just because the hotels are cheap doesn’t mean that Kuala Lumpur is lacking in things to do. You can find great shopping opportunities throughout the city, including at the Midvalley Megamall located to the south of the city proper. Excellent food like saree and banana leaf rice can be found on truly any street corner but places like Damansara and Hartamas in particular have an extensive selection of eateries and drinking spots. A rail system makes getting around Kuala Lumpur easier, and the main regional station --KL Sentral-- is south of this Malaysian Capital. Caves, a national Zoo, and the towering Petronas Twin Towers round out a solid selection of fascinating attractions in this increasingly popular tourist favorite.
