Amazing Tourism Malaysia . Tourism Kuala Lumpur

Dataran Merdeka, Kuala LumpurKuala Lumpur is the capital city of Malaysia, and thus, the main international gateway of Malaysia as well. When the Federation of Malaya gained its independence in 1957, Kuala Lumpur was declared the Federal capital. In 1972, it achieved city status. At the same time, it also remained as the capital of the state of Selangor, a status it attained in 1887. However, on the 1st of February 1974, it was officially declared a Federal Territory which also marked the end of Selangor's jurisdiction over Kuala Lumpur.

Clean and beautiful, with treelined streets, parks and public flower gardens, Kuala Lumpur transforms into a veritable wonderland of lights at night, earning its name 'Garden City of Lights'. Kuala Lumpur's strategic location in the region has made it an important international centre for trade, business and commercial activities. The city is served by a comprehensive and modern transportation system. More than 40 foreign airlines fly in from various parts of the globe through the Kuala Lumpur International Airport at Sepang, an hour's drive south of Kuala Lumpur. Railway lines and roads radiate from the city providing swift access to other parts of the country. A commuter train service has been introduced to connect the city to neighbouring towns. The city's public transportation has been further augmented by the Light Rail Transit (LRT). Kuala Lumpur is also served by the country's largest seaport, Port Klang.
