Removals to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: Living in the Capital
Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia and is a vast, thriving metropolis with a city landscape dominated by skyscrapers. It is at the economic, commercial and industrial hub of Malaysia and is also home of the largest twin towers in the world, the Petronas Towers, an iconic, national symbol of Malaysia.
Based 150 km away from the former capital Malacca, Kuala Lumpur was founded in 1857 when a group of Chinese tin prospectors settled here. Its name means 'muddy confluence' because it rests at the confluence of Klang River and the Lumpur River (now the Gombak River).
Today Kuala Lumpur, affectionately known as KL, is a multi cultural, multi race society which counts ethnic Malays, Chinese, Indians, as well as expats, among its population of 1.5 million. The locals are known as KLites and the main language is Bahasa Malaysia, although English is also widely spoken here.
If you live here and want to keep up to date with the news, there are plenty of English language newspapers and business newspapers available. You can also find TV programmes broadcast in English. To keep on top of events and night life, Time Out was launched in Kuala Lumpur in 2008.
