"Kuala Lumpur, a wonderful surprise!" Kuala Lumpur by shivan

I've been there for a week or so.
I must admit that Malaysia, and Kuala Lumpur is particular, has been a wonderful surprise to me.
I expected to visit a country still back in development but what I found is an highly developed place, far more than Bangkok, for example, an all-new city with services and state-of-the-art structures. Many contradictions are visible, anyway.
Those contradictions are typical of a country whose industry is growing faster than society itself, so you can see fantastic skyscrapers close to ancient and ruined structures such as open-air sewers, that I think they are going to disappear soon.
Not different than what I saw in China.
Malaysia is also a multiethnical country, because it has been historically a land of passage for europeans, arabs and natives. It is now an islamic country, a peaceful one, and signe of different cultures are clearly visible everywhere.
Just give Malaysia 10 years to develop and then you'll have a very advanced nation by the hands.
