Kuala Lumpur is the capital of the southeast Asian country of Malaysia. It was established rather recently at the end of the 19th century. Its architecture reflects a cosmopolitan mixture of Malaysian, Chinese, Indian and European cultures. In addition to the structures of the architectural past, more and more skyscrapers - primarily in the financial quarter - are creating a new city appearance for this metropolis of over a million residents. The Petronas Towers – twin towers connected by a bridge - are among the city's landmarks.

The Tasek Perdana Lake Gardens offer tremendous park surroundings for picnics, boat trips and long walks. The park includes a butterfly park, a herd of red deer, an orchid and hibiscus garden and the largest bird park in southeast Asia. The parliament building and the National Monument are also located in the park. Just around the corner is the National Museum with historical exhibits. In addition, the city is home to numerous Chinese pagodas, Indian temples, Christian churches and mosques.

A few kilometres to the north of the city are the Batu Caves. There are 272 steps to the entrance. The shrine of the Hindu god Subramanian is located in these natural caves. In the nearby museum cave is a collection of colourful statues and wall paintings that feature scenes from Indian mythology.

22 kilometres from Kuala Lumpur is the Templer Park, a rainforest area with jungle paths, lagoons and waterfalls. An hour and a half south of Kuala Lumpur by car is Port Dickson with a terrific 18 kilometre long sandy beach with many bays - a diving and water sports paradise.
