Selamat Datang to Kuala Lumpur

A PARADISE BETWEEN LAND AND SEA

Kuala Lumpur is home to me and to 1.8 million other KLites. It is a place where a variety of cultures are all infused into one melting pot to offer a unique experience to visitors. Where else can you savour the meanest street food with one of the world's most iconic structures in the background? KL is definitely a place where everyday fun and world-class sophistication oddly meet to create a one-of-a-kind destination for travellers.
KL is filled with down-to-earth Malaysian charm and friendliness. Here, in addition to the usual "Selamat datang" ("Welcome"), we also greet one another with "Sudah makan?" which means, "Have you eaten?". Such is the significance of food in our everyday life and culture.

Our History

The TIMEFRAME

KL was founded in 1857 by a member of the Selangor royal family, Raja Abdullah, who was the representative of the Yam Tuan who administered Klang. Together with Raja Jumaat of Lukut and 87 Chinese workers, he came to explore the district in search for tin ore. After travelling up the Klang River to reach its confluence with the Gombak River, they made their way through deep jungle and found tin near Ampang. That moment marked the beginning of KL's development. Over the years it grew from a tin miner's camp into a commercial centre that was able to attract large numbers of investors from around various places.
