Welcome to KUALA LUMPUR, the capital and the largest city in Malaysia.

This city is one of best places in Malaysia to uncover rich and varied historical heritage.

Visit Porta de Santiago, one of the few oldest surviving remnants of European architecture in the whole of Asia. It is the last remains of what used to be a mighty fortress. Then head to other attractions like Stadthuys building, Christ Church, Clock Tower and the Queen Victoria Fountain.
