Everything about Kuala Lumpur – widely known as KL – is a mash-up of cultures and styles. The earliest grand buildings are an eccentric fusing of influences from across the British Empire, now overshadowed by towering modern skyscrapers, and the people make up a fantastic diverse cultural scene, from Malay, to Chinese and Indian. It's not all cosmopolitan though, as the country's most sacred Hindu shrine lies nearby, and there is plenty to see in the surrounding areas. Taken from The Rough Guide Snapshot to Kuala Lumpur, here are KL's top highlights:
1. Petronas Towers
