"visit the lovely capital of ..." Asia Favorite Tip by Krystynn

Favorite thing: visit the lovely capital of <b>MALAYSIA</b> - <b><u>KUALA LUMPUR</u></b>.

Discovering K.L. (as the locals here affectionately call it) is like watching a movie.....

You will be able to catch glimpses of ultra-modern skyscrapers standing majestically next to rows and rows of quaint old shophouses. Haute cuisine beside hawker stalls. And, big shopping malls next to night markets. K.L. is also a Shopper's Paradise. (<i>Move aside, Hongkong</i>).

From world-renowned designer labels to <i>Made-in-Malaysia</i> items, the inexpensive price tag(s) is a blessing in disguise to foreigners/ tourists. Let's attribute this to the low cost of living here. While department stores practice a fixed price policy, bargain hunters (<i>ahem!</i>) can test and fine-hone their skills at one of the many famous night markets.

K.L. will surely capture your heart, mind and imagination in a way no other city will! I guarantee you will be enthralled once you set foot on Malaysian soil.

For a greater insight into what this lovely capital has to offer, please browse through my <b><u>KUALA LUMPUR</b></u> travel page for more details. <i>Terima Kasih</i> (<i>meaning</i> 'Thank You' in Bahasa Malay).
