Kuala Lumpur sits at the halfway point of the west coast of the Malay peninsula, 35km (22 miles) inland in the Klang River Basin. A unique blend of old colonial and new Asian where Chinese tea houses, Indian shops and Malay hawker stalls line streets next to world-class hotels and super hi rise office blocks.
The city anchors a conurbation known as the Klang Valley, which roughly follows the Malacca Strait-bound Klang River. KL’s old city centre, which contains the colonial core, is centred around the confluence of the Klang and Gombak rivers, where Kuala Lumpur was first settled. Sights such as the Jamek Mosque and Independence Square are found here. South of this historic heart is the Chinese-inflected Petaling Street. To the northeast of the confluence is Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC), the new city centre with its famous Petronas Twin Towers, which sits in the financial district known as the Golden Triangle. South of KLCC is the swanky shopping district of Bukit Bintang.
