Capital of Malaysia

Fascinating, Marvellous, Remarkable - Malaysia is a top destination for tourists all across the world, having an unbeatable atmosphere and peaceful environment. For those in need of a tropical paradise or shopping parade, look no further than Malaysia – a land of discovery and adventure!


Malaysia is a country that yields a rich mix of cultural attractions and rapidly expanding cities filled with skyscrapers and multilane highways. Whether it’s the country’s jam-packed calendar of festivals, or its capital city of Kuala Lumpur, home to sprawling malls and narrow alleyways with lively and colourful markets, Malaysia’s street life is vibrant. But these are not the only reasons Malaysia welcomes a steady stream of visitors: there is also its cheap, tasty and varied food as well as its charming and sometimes eclectic blend of Moghul, Malay, Victorian and ultramodern architecture. Besides that, generations of travellers are also enthralled by the white-sand beaches of famous west coast islands such as Pulau Langkawi and Pulau Redang, as well as the lush rainforests of Borneo to the east. With so many varied and alluring attractions, Malaysia has something for everyone.

 Kuala Lumpur has a maritime climate suitable for visiting all year round. Weather conditions are hot and humid, but cool down as and when it rains, keeping the temperature balanced. Temperature ranges from 21 degree Celsius to 33 degree Celsius.
